Fantastic! Many thanks to Larry who really brought the Village to life and gave the three of us an unforgettable experience. Fans of Bob Dylan in particular will enjoy this tour as Larry's knowledge is encyclopedic and he is a gifted raconteur as you weave through the streets of Greenwich. Standing right where the cover photo for Freewheeling was shot will stay with me for a long time!
If you have a couple of hours to spend on a Sunday morning and you enjoy the music of the 60s this is a tour you should certainly consider. Recommended!
Wow! I took the West Village Rock 'n' Roll Walking Tour with Larry as our guide on 9/11/16 and would strongly encourage anyone with an interest in the history of music in the West Village to take this tour. Much of the tour focussed on His Royal Bobness Bob Dylan as we were shown various legendary sights from the 50's and 60's. I lived in the West Village myself in the late 60's but still learned a bunch from Larry's deep knowledge of Dylan as well as other musicians that haunt this great area of NYC. Full disclosure: Larry showed up in his Bruce Springsteen t-shirt, and, the big Bruce fan that I am, the vibe was excellent from the start and the tour itself continued on this upbeat note.
Wear comfortable shoes and expect to be on your feet for the full 2 hours. You will not be disappointed.
Trip with Bobby Pinn added color to the already colorful East Village - perfectly suited to those with a layman's knowledge of Rock 'n' Roll like myself as well those who are the steeped in its history - 2 hours well spent!
We took the Sunday Greenwich Village tour. It was the best part of our trip to New York. Pittsburgh Larry is a great tour guide and provided us with lots of information/. I am recommending this tour to all my family and friends when they go to NYC
Our group from Minneapolis booked this tour on a referral from a friend. We highly recommend you add this walking tour to your NYC itinerary. Bobby Pinn is a great tour guide. He's knowledgeable, fun and an overall great guy. This tour enhanced our NYC trip. We had a great time.

This is the best tour in NYC for everyone who loves rock and roll. It was glorious to walk the same streets that many important musicians did years ago, see the places where they used to live and play. Bobby was very knowledgeable and gave us time to take photos. It your are a fan of The Ramones as I am you cant miss it!
Very very good. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. He showed us some amazing areas and information about artists, where they lived, their stories and so much about the industry going back decades. There were pictures of places from years back compared to how they look now. It was money well spent and great to do. Thank you.
This was a great walking tour with a very knowledge and engaged tour guide - Bobby Pin. He comepletely engaged my tow teenage nephews who see themselves as experts on the music of the 60s and 70s. Absolutely a highlight of our trip to NYC - would highly recommended to anyone wanting to know more (and see the actual sights) of so much of the history of rock from this time.
We had a great time on this walking tour our guide Bobby Pinn was a great guy he was passionate about New York rock and roll and the bands that have made a name for themselves here. He showed the iconic sights and made the tour very interesting. I would recommend this tour for music fans and those who would like to find out more.
A brilliant, informative and personal highlight of my holiday. Bobby Pin was a brilliant tour guide, passionate and knowledgable on the history and area and I cannot wait to return and do the west village tour next year. Oh and his book is awesome. Many thanks.
