This is a great way to see a bit of New York night life and really learn about the locations as well as enjoying a drink. The guide was very knowledgable and entertaining. Had a great evening.
The tour guide was heaps of fun. He was also a journalist so he had a lot of storis to tell and even showed a few places tha were not on the tour, but were close t where we were going on the West side. The pubs went to were a little average. The first pub was good. The second was not nice at all and the third would have been good if it was busy. But a great way to meet fellow travellers and hear some good stories. The pizza stop was also great - and v yummy!
It's a good way to meet (friendly, good-humoured) New Yorkers; not only to enjoy a walk through some local neighbourhood haunts but gain some insight into their history and sociological quirks.
We decided to do this tour on the night of our arrival, to keep us awake! What good fun! We had 8 in our group and we decided where to go from a selection given to us - only problem was it was Saturday night and places got very busy. Nevertheless, it was interesting and we visited places we'd never have found ourselves. Would definitely recommend this.
We enjoyed our pub crawl of Greenwich Village...once it got started. Four of us were waiting and waiting for our guide until one of the participants managed to find a contact on this cell phone for the company. For awhile. it seemed to be a "no go" as the after hours number of the company was of no help--there was no one there!!
But once it started the guide was informative, and entertaining.
Message for the company--it was not a good recommendation for the organization of your business.
This was a little disappointing, there were only three of us on tour, and the guide talked pretty much the whole time instead of letting everyone socialise and have a good night out - I would probably like a little less "tour guiding" and more time to enjoy the pubs. The pubs we went to were great though - McSorsley's was fantastic
Our tour guide was over an hour late. She did apologize and stayed with us for the full three hours, which was the original scheduled time for the tour. It was a good opportunity to see some of the local pubs and learn a bit about the history of Hells Kitchen area.
Very good guide, but I think the info about the tour, the Hell's Kitchen one, was a little misleading. I was expecting more stories about gangs and less about buildings. Anyway, it was nice.
Great way to see different parts of the city especially at night.
My tour would have been better with a different tour guide. He talked more about himself than about why we were doing the tour. Had fun but it was due to the other participants not the tour guide.
We chose the East village tour for no particular reason, but perhaps chose wrong. I think I misunderstood 'pub' and expected something more like a bar, instead, we went to old beer houses- and not being a big beer fan, I was quite annoyed at the last pub that only served 2 beers - nothing else. Not to mention the putrid dank smell of the place. Apaprently famed for being the bar Lincoln drank - it smelt like he is still there.
Tour guide was 30 minutes late. Said he thought it was in Hell's Kitchen. Went to 3 bars. None seemed prepared for us to be there. 1 beer at each bar. Definatley overpriced.
