“Great, detailed information by tour guide about the history of gospel and an unforgettable service at the Brooklyn Tabernacle with its famous choir.”
“An educational and informative tour. The information was delivered clearly and the tour was well-paced for all those attending. I learned a lot about slavery in the early days of the city, and would strongly recommend this tour to anyone with a thirst for knowledge.”
“I took the alternative street art tour … . It was fantastic-we saw so many wonderful images through Brooklyn and Williamsburg. [The Tour Guide] was so informative, and inquisitive (welcoming info from locals as we went) and guided a large group safely (we strayed on the roads to take photos and she constantly reminded us to be safe). She gave us a wonderful history to street art and of the artists whose work we got to see- loved!! Was a good idea to bring a snack although we did stop at a cafe for restroom and drinks- felt good to give back to a local business as we wandered their sidewalks.”
“[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!”
“Great tour for gospel lovers! Despite the freezing weather, we enjoyed walking around Brooklyn and learning the basics of gospel music. The church service is long but it’s worth to hear the introducing songs.”
“We just got home from 7 days in New York. We did 4 walking tours while we were there. The Alternative Street Art tour was a favorite for my 18-year-old. I also enjoyed it very much. Just be prepared if you go in July it is HOT! Awesome tour definitely would recommend it!”
“… our tour guide was fantastic. Lots of great info and highly recommend doing it. Very easy walk with beautiful buildings every where.”
“I took this Gospel-tour two weeks ago, solo as a visual impaired person (no peripheral sight). The tour guide made everything to make it easy for me to enjoy this tour. Our guide knew many interesting facts, and attending the Gospel-service at Brooklynite Tabernacle was amazing. You must also stay for the sermon, but you do that with pleasure to respect the church community. A must-do in New York on a Sunday.”
“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.”
“Excellent tour, really enjoyable. Our tour guide … was very informative and passionate about the subject, he kept the energy up throughout and took time to interact with all members of our group. Went beyond the typical facts you would expect, and make me view NY a little differently during my time there, very impressive!”
