My family and I took my dad on this tour for father's day, and I can't say enough good things. Bob took us around for several hours and never checked his watch once, and never seemed to be in a hurry. He only seemed interested in telling us everything we wanted to know about rock and roll in Greenwich Village.

Coming from NYC and being very interested in rock, I was amazed by how much I was able to learn. Bob was able to share incredible insider stories and even history on the city that I didn't know. I would recommend to anyone.

We decided to take the tour and get a feel for the area. Bob is a great guide and a nice person. My wife and I and two adult children arent really Dylan fans so the tour wasnt what we hoped it would be. Having said that Bob was great nd even bought us an egg cream (which doesn't have egg or cream in it) which was delicious. His knowledge is excellent. Maybe we just took the wrong tour
