“Our walking tour of Greenwich Village with Phil was one of the highlights of our trip to New York. His humorous stories, personal insights, and hidden places made the hour and a half fly by. We’ll never feel like a stranger in this area again.”
—Paige L., Greenwich Village Walking Tour, July 2014

“Phil at Walk About New York was very knowledgeable and friendly! We booked at the last minute and Phil was glad to accommodate us. I especially liked that he used SMS messaging to communicate our meeting point and tour duration so I had his direct contact information. Great experience and educational 2.5 hour walking tour of the Greenwich Village. Phil answered all of our questions and made us feel at home, highly recommend Phil as your tour guide.”

“We took a lovely, informative, relaxed walk with Phil all over Greenwich Village last week, on a picture-perfect day. Phil is a font of knowledge about the nooks and crannies of the Village, showing us things which we ‘know-it-all,’ jaded NYers were delighted to learn and see for the first time. Recommended!”
