Greenwich Village

14th Street and West of Broadway, New York City, 10012

The Basics

As one of Manhattan’s top destinations, Greenwich Village is a stop on most hop-on hop-off bus tours, which allow visitors to explore at their own pace without the hassle of navigating.

Private tours provide a more intimate experience, allowing guests to tack a stroll through Greenwich Village onto the day’s customized itinerary.

Greenwich Village food tours showcase the area’s array of hidden gems and independent eateries and typically include a selection of food and drink tastings. While daytime tours provide the best views of the High Line, Washington Square Park, and the Hudson River, evening walking tours and ghost tours offer a fresh perspective on the city illuminated under the night sky.

High Line Park and Greenwich Village Food Tour
Highline Park NYC We went on a guided tour with Nancy from Viator.com in NYC of the entire Highline, walked tour West & East Greenwich Village and stop at 5 places to eat! ( 4 hours) . It was the BEST! All the tours operators are knowledgeable and certified . There was only 6 of us on the walking tour. The woman was a professional dancer & ballet dancer and life long resident of NYC.

Tom was a great, informative guide who was happy to answer all questions. All food stops were delicious, nice variety. We learned lots of interesting things about High Line, Greenwich Village, One World Plaza and financial district. The tour is definitely worth your money one and money.

Ghosts of Greenwich Village: 2-Hour Private Walking Tour
My wife and I as well as our teenage children loved this experience!! Marshall is an outstanding resource in Greenwich Village. She is engaging and kept us all entertained. She was also kind enough to share some knowledge about NYU as we moved by some of its buildings, as my son had some questions about the school. She gave us some great restaurant recommendations near the end of the tour. We truly enjoyed our tour with her! We highly recommend Marshall and this tour!!!

Bob Dylan’s Village

Greenwich Village was not always an upscale neighborhood dotted with celebrity condos and boutiques. Steeped in 1960s counterculture, the Village was once a hub for artists, musicians, writers, and creatives, including Bob Dylan, Allen Ginsberg, Annie Leibovitz, and Joan Baez. Walking tours often highlight historic landmarks and these iconic figures’ former haunts, which visitors often miss if exploring on their own.
