Great to evening in Greenwich Village

Fabulous way to spend an evening in NYC. Gabby was fantastic and made everything very relaxed. She was extremely knowledgeable and we both had a great time. Thanks for the other none tourist tips too. Did the private tour and highly recommend the extra cost to do that felt much more personal.
Great guide!

We really enjoyed the ghost tour. Our guide Nicole was very informative and easygoing. She was a great storyteller and we learned a lot about the history of some colorful residents of the Village.
A superb tour!

My wife and I as well as our teenage children loved this experience!! Marshall is an outstanding resource in Greenwich Village. She is engaging and kept us all entertained. She was also kind enough to share some knowledge about NYU as we moved by some of its buildings, as my son had some questions about the school. She gave us some great restaurant recommendations near the end of the tour. We truly enjoyed our tour with her! We highly recommend Marshall and this tour!!!
A must experience … don’t miss it!
