A Goodfella's Tour of New York City

Brooklyn, United States

Experience hosted by Brian

3 hours
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will visit the Brooklyn and Queens sites where Henry and Jimmy lived, ate, drank, hung out, and brought about the early demise of many not so fortunate associates. We will be using the subway to get between locations, so you'll need a metro card with enough value for a few subway/bus rides.
Other things to note
We'll be using the subway, so you'll need a MetroCard with enough value for at least four rides. If subway construction makes our planned itinerary unrealistic, we will visit other locations instead.

This Goodfellas Tour of NYC is the result of more than a quarter-century of me reading books and newspaper articles and of course watching the Martin Scorsese film a few dozen times!

Where you'll be

We'll visit a mix of real life and film locations throughout Brooklyn and Queens. You'll get to see where Spider got whacked in real life and where the Christmas celebration after the Lufthansa heist was filmed. We'll visit the location where Henry and Karen had their first date as well as Henry's boyhood home. If subway construction makes visiting some of these locations unrealistic, we will visit others. You will still get a full tour.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 34 reviews.

Loved the tour. Brian is a super guide. He obviously has done extensive research on the events and real people involved in the Goodfellas story. A highlight for me was seeing the restaurant where Henry and Karen had their first date. We felt a nice connection with Brian and definitively recommend this great tour. You should know that there is quite a lot of walking so rest up beforehand

Brian did an amazing job taking us to the key spots from the movie as well as the real life locations. The tour was well thought out and being able to watch excerpts of the film on his tablet was great, especially for us who didn’t remember all the details. The tour is a unique experience and an original way to keep exploring New York, far from the crowds, in neighborhoods you wouldn’t have necessarily thought about going. We finished the tour in the tavern where Jimmy and co celebrate the Lufthansa heist, in a very friendly and cosy atmosphere!

As far back as I could remember I always wanted to visit the bar from Goodfellas. It was so cool seeing the spot where Jimmy sat and planned to kill Maury and “Sunshine of your Love” played in the background. Brian did such an amazing job taking us around to all the good spots where not just scenes from the movie took place but actual historical locations. This is definitely for die hard Goodfellas fans!

I was on Brian's, Good Fellas tour and it was the highlight of my visit to NYC. I am not a big fan but I have seen the movie a few times. Brian would show me clips from the movie, on his tablet, to point out, our position in relation to the movie. Next time I am in town, I will take Brian's, The Ramones tour. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get out of their comfort zone of Manhattan. I was able to go from a low end area of Queens during Brian's tour, to a high end bar, located high in the Manhattan sky, on top of a tower building, during my next tour, (pub crawl) later that evening. It was an interesting day.

This tour was amazing for this Goodfellas lover! You visit places and explore areas you would likely never have experienced otherwise. My only piece of advice for a perspective booker is the be sure you have a basic understanding for how to use and navigate public transportation before you go. Brian navigates your entire trip and is helpful to give return directions but be sure to remember that when the tour is over you will need to find your way back to where you’re staying. Brian is extremely personable and knowledgeable. This tour was one of the highlights of my trip.

For anyone who is a fan of the movie Goodfellas this is an amazing experience. The tour was well thought out with three key scenes from the movie and three stops from the actual events that transpired (4 if you include your flight into JFK). The neighborhoods where these events have stayed relatively the same structure wise so you really get the sense of what these guys were seeing when these events were going down. Brian also has built relationships with the people in these neighborhoods that can lead to some tour extras that could vary each time. Brian also knows the story through and through both the movie and the book version, he really has done his research as well with the prior reporting of the events as well outside of what Henry Hill described. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to get out of their comfort zone of Manhattan when visiting New York. You will experience areas of that you would never find on your own and see landmarks that are important to New York history outside of where Ryan Seacrest stands and counts backwards from 10 every December. The trip even kicks off with a subway stop with one of the most unique views of the NYC skyline I have experienced. We felt safe on this tour if that is giving anyone hesitation about visiting these areas as well. As you ride the train to these areas there are several areas where Brian will state things like "this isn't part of the tour but by the way this other important New York City event happened in this neighborhood. Brian is a world traveler and a great story teller and it really comes through in his ability to guide you through Brooklyn and Queens. 10/10 Paul Cicero (Paul Vario) himself would enjoy this tour.
