    We were a group of four men of a certain age on vacation from Edinburgh. We all have an interest in the music of the era and all greatly enjoyed this very informative tour. A wealth of stories, well told and supported with contemporary memorabilia. Highly recommended. And buy the book!

    Absolutely brilliant! Highlight of our NYC trip. This tour was informative, entertaining and a really nice walk through the East Village and through time. A must if you are a music fan and particularly a fan of 70s NY punk. The tour guide was easy to find and a really nice guy. Very knowledgeable. I'd be happy to recommend it to anyone.

    Highly recommend this tour. Bobby Pinn was our guide and he was exceptional. You can see the various sights on your own, but with Bobby as the guide you get the historical perspective and great stories also recommend purchasing Bobby's book which is for sale at the end of the tour. This tour covers it all, Rock, Jazz, Glam and Punk. East Village is also a great place to hang out after the tour. A great overall experience.

    Larry, our guide, was so knowledgable. He gave an in depth music tour, he is a great source of information. Another added benefit of the tour is that you really get to know an area of New York city that is beautiful. I saw streets I would have never seen on my own. Great time!!!!
