Informative and fun!
Jan 2020
This was a fun tour walking around the village and hearing stories of authors known, and unknown. The guides were a comic duo who played off of each other well. Their stories were full of information, and I learned a lot about a part of the city with which I thought I was really familiar.
The stops along the way were iconic. We had enough time to get a drink and hear some tales.
Definitely a fun afternoon out!

I loved the relaxed, easy atmosphere of the tour; the stories and poems and history unfolded naturally. Jillian was a lot of fun and did a fantastic job of showing us a good time and helping us all become fast friends.

Great time! Our tour guide Kurt was very knowledgeable, friendly and lots of fun! Eric was also super responsive even when I texted on a weekend to double check timing.
Would highly recommend this to anyone even remotely interested in literature or the fun history of Greenwich Village.

A disappointment
Oct 2019 • Friends
We were told to be there by 2pm
arrived to be greeted with we are a very large group today and won’t leave until 2.20
We left at 3pm
Info was interesting but far too slow . At 4pm we were in second pub and all crammed in - too many of us to sit together
Guides were interesting but need a smaller group and less hanging around

We appreciate the feedback, thanks for sharing, and are sorry to hear it was disappointing. It appears that probably this product was not the right fit for the patrons. Based on the review, they would probably have preferred on of our shorter walking tours, rather than our literary pub crawl. Our selling point, and what makes us unique, is while you relax over a drink at each pub, we share stories, legends and performances. This has been our model for the 21 years we've done this. People gather at 2pm, buy drinks, we allow a little time for train delays (New Yorkers are used to frequent subway delays) and then we begin. We were fairly close to being on schedule for our 3 hour/3 pub tour and ended on time at our last stop. We did have a larger than usual group, and sadly this is rare. It's also very rare for our second pub to be as busy as it was. Regrettably the bars have high overhead in rents and can't turn business away just for us. Bad timing that both our tour and the second bar were so popular that day. I do think one of our walking tours/non pub crawls would have been more in line with what the reviewer would have preferred. Wendy, we'd be happy to refund your tickets, or offer you comps onto one of our non pub crawl tours. This should have been suggested to you onsite and I apologize this did not happen. Email me with your confirmation email and I'll set it up. Thanks!

Awesome fun Greenwich experience

We loved the tour, learned a lot and heard many stories of writers and other cultural persons. Our tour was quite small with just six people. Great pubs and beer, and especially awesome guide! Highly recommended to dive into Greenwich Village!

Mar 2019 • Family
this was a "gift" experience for my sister and brother in-law. We really enjoyed the content of the tour and that bars were well-chosen. Didn't realize how cool it would be to walk down certain Greenwich side streets and get context and facts - literary and otherwise - that I never would have known. Would highly recommend!

Books, History, and Booze, Oh My!
Mar 2019 • Couples
This tour was a lot of fun, so much to see and talk about. We got a beautiful day which was a pleasant surprise for March especially. There was so much information and it was a great history lesson about Greenwich Village! After the tour was over we chatted with some of the other patrons about books, shows, and the city. We had a great time and would definitely love to do one of their other tours. If you are in the city and love books, history, or drinking this tour is for you!!

Unique idea and well executed. I went with my boyfriend. We both enjoyed it. He is a big reader and was very into the history. I am less of a reader and I enjoyed the fun facts about the authors. The tour guides were funny and engaging. I would recommend this to anyone who is a big reader or likes NYC history.
