We were a group of four men of a certain age on vacation from Edinburgh. We all have an interest in the music of the era and all greatly enjoyed this very informative tour. A wealth of stories, well told and supported with contemporary memorabilia. Highly recommended. And buy the book!

Absolutely brilliant! Highlight of our NYC trip. This tour was informative, entertaining and a really nice walk through the East Village and through time. A must if you are a music fan and particularly a fan of 70s NY punk. The tour guide was easy to find and a really nice guy. Very knowledgeable. I'd be happy to recommend it to anyone.

Highly recommend this tour. Bobby Pinn was our guide and he was exceptional. You can see the various sights on your own, but with Bobby as the guide you get the historical perspective and great stories also recommend purchasing Bobby's book which is for sale at the end of the tour. This tour covers it all, Rock, Jazz, Glam and Punk. East Village is also a great place to hang out after the tour. A great overall experience.

Larry, our guide, was so knowledgable. He gave an in depth music tour, he is a great source of information. Another added benefit of the tour is that you really get to know an area of New York city that is beautiful. I saw streets I would have never seen on my own. Great time!!!!

A fun and informative way to see many of New York's rock n roll landmarks that are hiding in plain sight. Especially enjoyed seeing the old Fillmore East as well as the building used for Physical Graffiti and Waiting on a Friend.

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

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.
