Was disappointed with the tour guide. He was enthusiastic but wasn't very knowledgeable. When we and others asked questions most of the time he didn't know the answers. I've been on other tours and found them to know more about the area they were touring.

This was a great tour! We've lived in the city for years and never knew any of the history of this neighborhood. Our tour guide Michael was very informative and friendly. I would recommend this to anyone visiting the city or who already lives here.
From Edgar Allan Poe to the Beat Generation poets, discover where American literature, painting, cinema, and modern music got their start. Named after the father of American poetry, this tour will explore the origins of the neighborhood that became the incubator for the art movements in the United States, from American literature and theater to stand-up comedy and classic rock.
This stroll through the winding, twisted streets of Greenwich Village takes you to sights including Washington Square, New York University, Sheridan Square, Our Lady of Pompeii Church, and the folk music clubs of Bleecker Street. For well over a century, “The Village” has nurtured struggling artists, writers and musicians from Edgar Allan Poe to the Beat poets to Bob Dylan. See where the Roosevelt's used to romp and where Jazz and Ragtime got much of their start. The fun quality that is the village will be found in this historic tour.
Significant Attractions Include:
• Washington Square Park and Arch
• New York University
• Stonewall Inn
• Bleecker Street
• Rocco’s Pastry Shop
• Café Wha?
• MacDougal Street
