Live like a New Yorker
Your Tour Guide will meet you at the Pier and escort you on foot to the closest Subway station in Midtown Manhattan. While using the NY subway may seem confusing to first-timers, it's actually quite simple once you get the hang of it.
Your guide will provide you with NYC city and subway map and a Metrocard. You will learn about and become expert at navigating the (in)famous NYC subway system.
Your subway ride will take you to West 4th Street / Washington Square where you will start your walking tour through one of New York's most appealing neighbourhoods “Greenwich Village, which New Yorkers invariably speak of simply as The Village”. It is definitely a favourite weekend destination for New Yorkers and a lovely place to stroll. Leafy streets, lined with Federal-style town houses and ivy-covered brownstones, meander at will, defying the symmetrical street grid pattern that brings order to the world above 14th Street. Residents from the Village remain loyal to the local organic bakery and the corner produce market. It's a neighbourhood on a very human scale, with small delights around every corner.
During this walking tour, your native Tour guide will tell you about the history, culture, architecture, and entertainment offerings that make Greenwich Village so unique from the rest of New York City. You will also have the opportunity to sample a variety of New York food specialties (such as best thin crust pizza, delicious rice balls, crispy cannoli and tasty Cupcake) that has secured The Village's reputation as being one of the greatest culinary and cultural centres of the City. You will discover the old Italian neighbourhood, hidden gardens, the narrowest house in NYC, and much more!
