What a wonderful way to escape the Island of Manhattan. This walking tour of the Bronx was a great way to be introduced to the area. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Bronx. Many great sights including Yankee stadium. We really got an understanding of the history of the region and an appreciation of the cultural vibe. Great tour!

This was my favorite tour that I went on during my NYC visit. I loved walking across the bridge and around DUMBO. Definitely bring your camera and walking shoes. James was my guide and he was fun, engaging, spoke with everyone on the tour and answered any questions that the members of the group had. I would definitely recommend this... More

This walk across the Brooklyn Bridge was something my husband wanted to do. I'm so pleased that I went with him. Marco was knowledgeable and kept us all together whilst being accosts by cyclists and runners, plus other walkers going the opposite way down a very narrow pathway. DUMBO gave us the opportunity to take some great photos.

I found this tour about the history of slavery in America and the stories of certain individuals escaping slavery and of those involved in it's abolition to be inspirational. I would highly recommend it to all visitors to NYC!

In my experience one should rather rate the tour guide than the company, because she/he can make a tour fantastic or awful. I had a great tour with Ludie about the Brooklin Bridge and DUMBO. She is very energetic and entertaining and gave us a lot of interessting information on the history of the bridge and on DUMBO. I had... More

I had an excellent time on this tour. The tour began at a wonderful little cupcake shop that had the most delicious treats. With snacks in hand we went to several beautiful boutiques and off the beaten path places to get some great souvenirs. All of the shop owners were lovely friendly people and the tour guide was especially kind... More

Although I travel to NYC once a year I rarely visit the Bronx except for Yankee Stadium since I spend most of my time in Harlem, Brooklyn and Queens. When I saw this tour listed online I was very intrigued since I had heard the Bronx had rebounded from the sad times of the 70s and 80s. Marcos our guide... More

Had a great time on the Brooklyn bridge and Dumbo tour. Learned a lot and enjoyed the chocolate stop! Only wish there had been a better potty break. Guide was good

I was hesitant about this tour not only for the start time but also the length. 1. start time is 9.30 on a sunday morning near wall street and if you go for the full course its 4 and a half hours. the tour is split very nicely into two parts. part 1 takes you through the history of Gospel... More
