West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

In my experience, they would not do this for 7 people. The bus normally carries about 30 people and we met it at a pre-determined location. There are services on NYC that do private tours, though.

I think it is to demanding for an elderly who can't walk far distances. The walks aren't to long, but where you get out of the bus it is very crowded and the tempo is high. It is possible to stay on board during the most... More
