About
Join this Greenwich Village history tour led by a native New Yorker. Marc will walk you through the Greenwich Village streets of early 19th-century town houses. Stories of past residents, local history, Native American history, architecture and personal anecdotes enliven this New York City tour. Marc covers unique parts of the Village. Most tours are only 1-2 people and special interests can be accommodated. It is easy to maintain social distancing (May 2020) for the small groups of 1-2 people. I recommend early morning walks through the almost deserted streets. It is a lovely time of year and the flowers are beautiful.

A fun and broad view of the Village
Jun 2019 • Couples
Marc gave us a personalized and fascinating view of the Village. Though we were familiar with the area, he added so much information, covering Native American spots, the 19th and early 20th centuries, and the exciting time of the 60's. Because he was born and raised in the neighborhood, he was able to weave both personal stories and history to make for a very enjoyable tour.

Severely lacking...
This was hands down the worst tour we have ever done. Marc seems like a nice person, but it was incoherent, lacked substance, and way too much personal information. He went on constantly throwing out facts without any context. It is such a fascinating part of New York, but unfortunately it was a very underwhelming experience.

I am sorry you did not enjoy the history tour. Marc covers facts pertaining to the history of Greenwich Village. It would be helpful to know what you felt was out of context? As advertised, he includes many personal anecdotes. Marc lived in the Village since 1950 and to make the tour more interesting weaves in some of his personal experiences. Please elaborate on what it is you would have preferred to hear about during a history tour of the Village? Would you consider retracting this damaging review?

Have a stroll with this guy!

Marc will bring this neighborhood to life. Greenwich Village bears the characteristics of many different historical eras at the same time. Marc will happily weave these together with background stories either from history general, from personal experience or through the stories of the people who lived in and helped shape this neighborhood. Highly recommended!

A very personal walking tour of Greenwich Village
Oct 2017 • Couples
Marc and his family have lived in the Village for decades and so Marc draws on this to provide a very personal walking tour during which he describes some of the characters (some famous, some not) he has encountered. I got the feeling he adapts the tour and the route depending upon how receptive and interested his walkers are. Our tour lasted 2.5 hours although it was only advertised as a 2 hour walk.
