“Great tour – really interesting history of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Brooklyn area. And the views of Manhattan as you cross the bridge are fantastic. Our guide was really knowledgeable and helpful and we could ask him any questions about Brooklyn which is really useful if you’re planning to use the tour to further explore the Brooklyn area.”
“Great experience to see and learn a bit more about the buildings you normally only are passing by. We had a fantastic tour guide … who really made this 3 h tour to one of the high lights during our 5 day long visit in NY. Highly recommended!”
“… our tour guide was fantastic. Lots of great info and highly recommend doing it. Very easy walk with beautiful buildings every where.”
“My daughter and I had a wonderful time with the alternative arts walking tour in Brooklyn. Our tour guide was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and made me view streets arts in a very new way. We had a plenty of time to take photographs. It was really a neat way of learning more about New York. I also liked that we stopped at a local coffee shop. It was nice to relax a bit, participate in the local economy, and have a chance to sit down. We had two other walkings tours, which were all very good, and wish that there was this component of stopping at a coffee shop at each tour.”
“Great tour, very interesting all around and a fantastic way to know all about the origins of gospel music. [The Tour Guide] was a fantastic guide, always making sure everyone was listening and enjoying themselves.”
“Very easy to book online (the day before) and great tour guide … . Walked over the Brooklyn Bridge and explored Dumbo. Learnt a lot of interesting history from Matt re the construction of the bridge and the town of Dumbo. I’m not a lover of history but he was very engaging. Walked at a good pace with regular stops and photo opportunities. Very satisfied with this tour and would use this company again.”
“Just got back from New York and we went on the Gospel Tour … OMG it was really cold but well worth it we had an amazing time the highlight of our trip anyone going to New York you really have to book this tour. THANK YOU … and please thank the church it was so uplifting”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
