Lennon's favorite NYC spots, in his beloved city


One of John Lennon's great loves was New York City. Walk in his footsteps, and experience what inspired John Lennon after being in the Beatles.

We see as much as you want, depending on your pace and your interests. John Lennon was raw and spontaneous. Let's do this his way.

The quickest we can tour is two hours, but we may reserve additional hours at $79 per hour, up to 9 hours. (#9 was John's lucky number. ) I recommend at least 3 hours in at least two neighborhoods.

I have enough material for a book! I approach this using quotes, notes, and pictures. Sometimes we sit or stand to take in the information to get the most from each location. Some guests like to warm up (or cool down) along the way with a refreshment, so we are comfortable. Most of my guests like to share John Lennon's impact on their lives. There has been joy, intensity, beauty, sadness, inspiration.

This is a favorite tour for John Lennon fans, and those who love them.

Very customizeable. It is always fun and moving.

Itinerary

For John Lennon fans:
Up to a dozen sights and locations:
- Lennon's residences, the Dakota, or in Greenwich Village

We see as much as you want, depending on your pace and preferences.

You and I plan, either in advance, or at the beginning of the tour, what you want to see and hear the most about. I present specific options and neighborhoods.

In between sights, we can talk about what we are seeing in NYC, or just keep talking about John Lennon.

This is my loosest structured themed tour. It is about freedom and love, and peace, and spontaneity, and feeling. We will walk in the NYC footsteps of John Lennon.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jared was really great! Even the rain could not dampen the amazing time we had on the tour. Got to see some great Lennon related locations and learn lots about the city. Jared even sprinkled some other places of interest on the way which was a very nice surprise. We really got to experience New York from a unique perspective and felt like we got to walk John Lennon's path for a few hours. The tour is a must for all Lennon fans!
