If you are into New York City rock and roll history from the 60s, 70s, 80's and 90's you would enjoy this tour. My husband and I loved the tour. Bobby Pinn is a great tour guide full of interesting and fun info. We really enjoyed spending the 2 hours with him. At the end of the tour he even gave us a list of places to eat, drink and shop. We used the 15% off coupon at Trash & Vaudeville. We ate at one of his pizza places, Gruppo, and the pizza was great. We even bought the yummy traditional East Village Egg Cream drink he told us about. Very fun, interactive, educational. We highly recommend it to all rock fans! The tour is 2 hours but you will want to go back to some of the places in the East Village so plan for more time.

The Rock Junket Punk & Rock tour of the East Village was a real highlight of our trip to NYC. Bobby Pinn is an excellent guide and is clearly passionate about what he does and enjoys sharing his great stories and insight into the East Village music history scene.

What a great way to enjoy and appreciate this neighbourhood! Not sure about Egg Creme's though :-)

If you love rock and/or punk, you'll love this tour!

My son and I took both available walking tours during our recent visit to NYC. Both Bobby ( East Village tour ) and Larry ( Greenwich Village tour ) were a delight. Both are incredibly knowledgable, very personable and in short,a pleasure to spend time with...... If you have any interest in music these are THE tours for you. My 13 year old son was entranced by the iconography at every turn, Bob Dylan, The Ramones, Jimmy Hendrix, Bruce Springsteen and many more are featured and this middle aged Mum was actually reduced to tears when we came upon the Joe Strummer tribute mural that has been my screensaver at home in the UK for years!! Tears, laughter and The Clash.... Doesn't get much better than that!

If you are into any New York rock or punk scene from the 70s 80s e.g. The Ramones, The New York Dolls, Blondie, The Dictators etc you must do this tour.
It was one of the best things we did on our New York trip.
Bobby who runs the tours is not only very informative about the music but all about the architecture of New York and the whole area. We will definatley be doing more of his tours the next time we are in New York. We booked the tour at rockjunket@gmail.com and we did the East Village Rock walk.
