*not a private tour, but closest option available

Orlando was a great guide, comprehensive and clear about all these fascinating stories behind places you wouldn’t think twice about. He made sure the whole group was around and minded street signals so everyone could get across safely. Generally very friendly and happy to answer questions.

For those looking into walking tours of nyc, this company offers an interesting and varied selection. Do be conscious of your stamina and capabilities to make the most of it though. A two hour walking tour can be rough after already having walked a lot for four days and already tired from the previous tourist hotspots. However it is well worth it if you are interested in whichever your is offered.

I'm not one to get spooked easily or a firm believer of the spirits, but there were some pretty spooky parts. Alyssa, our tour guide, was great and extraordinarily knowledgeable about the history of Greenwich Village. As a new local to the city, it was the perfect combination of a history lesson and fascinating ghost stories that my partner and I were looking for.

For me, it's especially surreal to know that I have passed by the house that John Wilks Booth stayed the night before he went on to make history without even knowing it dozen of times before I went on this tour. I would recommend it to anyone that likes any sort of dark history or paranormal activities.

I have been on a couple tours in the city now. And this was by far my favorite. Particularly because we had Jocelyn as our guide! She works in the Music Theatre industry and so made all the ghost stories so dramatic and exciting! You could feel the spooky spirits all around!

Liz was a wonderful informative tour guide. She has a deep knowledge of the area and history that brought the area to life. I would highly recommend this tour if you are into the paranormal or if you would like to see a bit more of Greenwich Village.

My husband, 14-year old son, and I took this tour for our last night in NY. It turned out to be the perfect ending for our trip! James, our tour guide, wove a wonderfully captivating and compelling narrative of Greenwich's 400 year history. The historical sites around Greenwich were incredible to see and the stories were the perfect combination of spooky ghosts and riveting history. Our 14 year old was engaged, asking questions, and stayed off his phone the whole time. That's a credit to James who truly brought the Village to life for us. Super memorable! Highly recommend this!

Jocelyn our guide was very professional and knowledgeable of all the amazing ghostly material. She had a captivating presence that made the tour that much more intense, in the best way. I have lived here for years and knowing more about the complicated history of this city was enthralling. I would do it again and again!

Our tour with Luke was extremely interesting, knowledgeable and entertaining. Luke is a fabulous story teller and kept 4 teenage girls, one 12 year old boy and 2 50-year olds engaged for the full two hours! I have been to NYC countless times and this was a terrific way to learn about the neighbourhod and its history. thanks Top Dog!

This is a neighborhood I frequent as a local from NJ now living in BK- I can no longer see it the same! Thanks Luke for being an awesome guide. Got a few laughs in and you made us feel safe and accommodated for. My nerd out moment was learning about one of the oldest trees in Manhattan, and also the stable road in Wash Sq area. I also got spooked with some of the old tales… did this for a date and recommend for visitors and locals alike if you want unique activity- lots of places to eat and drink around here after .

This is an amazing tour to get a glimpse into hidden New York. The tour takes you down streets that aren't hidden, but streets that you wouldn't particularly go down when maneuvering through the city, but these streets are amazing! Definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a quirky view of the city. Thank you Rory! 10/10 would recommend.
