“We prebooked the tour via internet for our long- awaited first trip to New York early March 2016 via New York Pass. The address and tour details received by mail were very good, we found the guide … immediately and spent a wonderful 2.5 hours exploring Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO neighbourhoods. Very personal and interesting by a Brooklyn fan ;o) highly enjoyable and recommendable.”
“Fascinating and informative tour, included general info about NY history and the history of slavery, and a pleasant not too strenuous walk around Lower Manhattan. The conclusion was very powerful as well. Guide …, with an advanced degree in History, knew his material, and answered numerous follow-up and other questions with detail and depth. Great tour!”
“… our tour guide was fantastic. Lots of great info and highly recommend doing it. Very easy walk with beautiful buildings every where.”
“A very interesting and informative tour of the slavery and underground railroad in New York. Our guide had an incredible knowledge and you could see his passion for the history. Totally recommend this tour. We did it as part of the New York pass.”
“We have just come back from the Brooklyn Bridge & Dumbo walking tour. We had a great, very knowledgeable, polite and informative guide … . Really really worth the money, yes you can see the bridge and even walk it, but the guide told about the history and the stories of the bridge and the Dumbo area. I can’t recommend it enough, a must do! As well a nice chocolate shop stop!”
“[The Tour Guide] was a perfect guide for this tour. It was fun meeting the business owners and learning the history of the area and best of all getting to taste the food!”
“… our guide, was a mine of information with tremendous enthusiasm and knowledge of the area. The walk was well paced and covered the history of the Bronx from its origins to the present day. Murals, the birth of hip-hop, the Grand Concourse were all covered in detail. [The Tour Guide] was an excellent guide and this walk has greatly enhanced my knowledge of this vibrant New York borough. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour to anyone interested in urban history and development.Thanks, … .”
“What a wonderful tour guide … turned out to be. A fountain of knowledge with a magnificent voice breaking out in song when informing us about the source of gospel music. With so much enthusiasm from our guide, how could we not have had the best time! The service in the Brooklyn Tabernacle was such a highlight, the singing lives on forever. Great tour.”
“This was a fabulous tour and one of the highlights of our trip to NY. It is, in my view, exactly what a walking tour should be – the right balance of walking and lots of information. This tour was crammed full of sights and information with plenty of time at each stop to absorb the building. The guide … was engaging and very passionate about her tour. We really felt like we were delving beneath the surface of the city a bit more. Our group size was great about 12 people so we were able to keep together. Be aware that you will be on your feet for most of the tour and you will walk from 1st avenue to 8th. Comfortable shoes, lots of water. Highly recommended”
“An informative tour given by a hard-core fan of the Brooklyn Bridge. Lots of details both historical and technical about the bridge, and history and tips of the Dumbo area.”
