"A really good tour over the Brooklyn bridge and DUMBO area. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the bridge and Dumbo area of Brooklyn. The tour takes a couple of hours or so and affords you some spectacular views and photo opportunities of the iconic Manhattan skyline. His knowledge of the bridge and Brooklyn area was absolutely excellent. We got plenty of time to ask questions. He also knows plenty about places to eat and other great things to see in Brooklyn. You can just walk across the bridge, but having the guide was well worth it, I would really recommend this tour, and thoroughly enjoyed it." - andymdobs, United Kingdom
