My friend and I did his Seven Deadly Sins tour and loved it. We've both lived in NYC for 10+ years and didn't know any of the stories that were told as part of the tour. Krikor is a GREAT guide. Sometimes I find these tour guides can kind of weird or offputting, but with Krikor it just felt like a friend showing us around the city who knew quite a lot :)

I would definitely recommend his tours to anyone, either local or visiting and I plan to work with Krikor in the future. :)

Fantastic few hours exploring Greenwich Village with EVAN. He was super prepared, many interesting to enjoy and anecdotes to laugh at. Thoroughly recommend

We had to cancel our tour at the last minute due to bad weather but Krikor was very helpful and managed to rearrange our tour for the next morning.
The tour itself was really enjoyable and Krikor was very knowledgable. There was a good mixture of history, culture and anecdotes which kept us entertained throughout.

I used to live in the city and now live out of state. Was in for a work event with a coworker and I suggested we take this tour. It was really interesting and fun to see and learn about the Village from a fresh perspective. Krikor was knowledgeable, charming,engaged, and had interesting stories to tell. He even sang a bit of a song! I’ve been recommending it to everyone.

We had the opportunity to schedule a tour with Krikor when we were in New York for our wedding anniversary. The specific tour we selected was the East Village. Krikor was very knowledgeable about the area and really brought it to life for us. He is personable and a terrific story teller. We saw and learned things that would have never happened if we tried something like that on our own. We would highly recommend it was truly a memorable experience. Next time in town we will book another tour with him. Oh by the way the food we were introduced to on the tour was something special.

My partner and I took the tour of the East village with Krikor on our last day in NYC. We found it very informative and enjoyable. Krikor knows and loves this rather less-known zone of the city and brings it and its history to life with a mix of well told stories from different aspects of its past and present. I expect his other tours would be of an equally high standard as he takes his tour work seriously! Recommended.

I would highly recommend this tour! The guide brought little corners to life with well-delivered, interesting stories and we enjoyed every moment. Next time we're in town we will try his other tour.

We had the pleasure of walking the streets of the EV over Labor Day weekend with Krikor - it was just myself, my wife and our 17 year old son. I've looked forward to visiting the neighborhood for a long time, being an admirer of the poets, artists and musicians who dwelled there in the past. Whether you're a jazz, rock or punk fan, there are ghosts waiting to be discovered around every corner. I was armed with a little bit of the history of the area before doing the tour - Krikor tailored the tour to match many of my interests. I really appreciated that. He also highlighted a number of great places to eat and drink. We went to Veselka for lunch after the tour - a wonderful Ukrainian restaurant that's not to be missed. Pick up Ada Calhoun's great book 'St. Mark's is Dead' for a primer on the history of the area. This True Tales tour is highly recommended!

My wife and I recently took this East Village walking tour. It was a wonderful experience. Like many of the other reviewers, we had what turned out to be a private tour. Krikor was wonderful; knowledgeable and entertaining. We have been on a number of walking tours, most having a food theme (the Cupcake Tour, the Chocolate Tour, etc.) And while they were all good, this was the best, even without the food. My wife and I are both native New Yorkers and each of us have spent, independently, time in the East Village and Alphabet City, yet we each learned a great deal about places we would have otherwise walked by. In reading these reviews, I see that Krikor also does a Brooklyn Bridge Tour and my wife and I look forward to joining him on that tour sometime in the not-distant future. If you're undecided about taking this tour, Try It, You'll LIke It!!!

We did the East Village Tour on 28 Dec '14.
The Tour was very well structured and ranged from significant historical facts to the less known and quirky events that once took place. It's basic, plain, from raw till refined, knowledgable and continuously entertaining and that's probably the strenght of this tour together with Krikor who puts you at ease and pulls this off as a real pro. I learned a lot during my 3+ hour tour and recommend it as time well spend. Glad I did it.
