Know More about this tour

Start your unique tour of Greenwich Village in one of the neighborhood’s iconic bars, where you'll begin with a drink (own expense). Then simply follow the shoe.

Divulging too much information will spoil the fun, but this tour touches on all of Greenwich Village’s landmark sites, including Washington Square Park and Chumley’s, a legendary speakeasy that’s since reopened as a restaurant.

Hear stories about the famous and forgotten personalities that brought this neighborhood to life, and celebrate bold personalities from Manhattan’s diverse and wonderful history. Ever heard of Lily Law, Jennie June, Eve Addams, or Duane Reade? You'll know all about them after this tour.

Your tour includes a bit of drinking (own expense) and a lot of humor. It’s easy to laugh at the off-beat jokes and engaging interactions your guide has with whatever random locals happen to be passing by. One thing is for sure: you’re in for a unique ride on this 2.5-hour excursion.

  • We had a blast spending the afternoon with Glace Chase! We loved the drink stops, the interaction with New Yorkers, and learning some of the Village's history and vibe. The end of the tour included the Stonewall Inn and Monster Bar, where we also got to hang out at Lady Bunny's disco party. Glace is truly a lovely, captivating person with an incredible sense of humour. If you want to immerse yourself in the Village, some sightseeing, and gay and drag culture - do this! Highly recommended!

  • Glace Chase's tour was my favorite part of visiting NYC. There were 12 people in the group A gay couple, a straight couple and a mixture of gay/straight singles. Within minutes she has us all feeling like old friends on a fun excursion. Her tour was a great combination of wet-your-pants laughter and serious insights into the difficulties of living in the village year or decades ago. Her interactions with residents and other visitors enhanced the experience by letting them contribute their history and impressions of the area. Allow extra time as the group has ample opportunities to visit drinking establishments during the tour. This tour gets my highest recommendation.

  • What a great tour...Glace was great and super high energy. This is one tour of the lower west side that you do not want to miss! Highly recommend!!!

  • Really fun tour. Glace was funny and crazy and we had a good group of people, all from the commonwealth countries. Lol. If you have an open mind and a fun heart you will totally enjoy this tour!

  • Glace was hilarious and fun! Not only did we get a great walking tour of Greenwich Village, we also got cocktails and a show. Glace had a perfect mix of history, culture, sightseeing, showmanship, drinks, and fabulousness. Leave your inhibitions at home and bring comfy shoes and an open mind it's all fun and love as you wander the streets visiting local gay bars, historical sites, singing a song or two, and engaging random indigenous or not-so-indigenous Bohemians. Just do it, and don't forget the frozen margarita at The Monster.

  • This tour was such good fun - you need to be fairly broad minded to enjoy it to its capacity. Glace was hilarious. The best bits were her interactions with the wonderful people of New York. This may not be the most historically educational of tours but we came away with the best feeling and memories. Still chuckling 3 days later :-

  • Genuinely the highlight of my entire trip, we were a small group but it was so much fun - as much a chance to check out fun bars and meet nice people as a great look at the history of the area! I would 100 reccomend this trip to anyone especially if you're travelling by yourself like I was its a really fun way to hang out with people for an afternoon Thanks so much Glace and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors! :D x

  • This was a small group of around 8 people, but the experience was quite fun . Our hostess was very funny, although you really need to be very gay-friendly to really appreciate the tour.

  • Fantastic and unique perspective of the west village. Glace was amazing, very funny but extremely knowledgable and intelligent. This was a very memorable part of our trip to New York. We would recommend this highly.

  • Absolutely brilliant!!! Glace was hysterically funny - I did nothing but laugh for 2.5 hours. We started off at the oldest gay bar in Manhattan and had a drink before we left, then walked in glorious sunshine whilst Glace kept us laughing and kept harassing passers by - again hysterically funny! and stopped for a frozen margarita halfway through and then after the tour ended up in another gay bar which isn't part of the tour. Great fun was had by all and I would urge anyone visiting New York to try this tour - it's completely surreal and very funny - as long as you're open minded lol!
