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.

New York City Ghost Tour of Greenwich Village
We really enjoyed the experience! Our guide was both knowledgeable and entertaining. Even though it was a chillier night, we stayed the entire length of the tour bc we were so interested! It was also nice to see smaller streets in Greenwich Village with some beautiful, older homes. We recommend this tour as a must do, ghost enthusiast or not! We mainly do them for the historical stories and were not disappointed!

Steve (our guide) was a wonderful, authentic and knowledgeable man who really showed us the soul of the area. We saw some wonderful highlights and learned a lot in the process, and have since returned to the area more than once to take up some of Steve’s recommendations of places to eat, comedy clubs etc.

NYC Greenwich Village Italian Food Tour
An excellent tour. Gregg was very friendly and knowledgeable and we got on with him really well. Unfortunately another party we were with had to cut their tour short because a member of their party fell ill, but Gregg was really professional and courteous about it and ensured they were in safe hands before carrying on with the tour. We learnt a lot about the area and we especially loved learning about the growth of the area, the Italian influence and of course, Joes Pizza!

Helene was a wonderful and enthusiastic guide...we were glad we did this tour. I would say it was more focused on the general history of Greenwich Village rather than the artistic and alternative history but that did not at all detract from the experience. I would recommend this tour!

Greenwich Village Food Tour
Jake, our tour guide, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and took us to the most delicious spots. He made sure every member of our family was happy with the food choices which was very kind! We not only enjoyed all of the yummy food but learned a ton about the neighborhoods we explored. Worth every penny!

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.
