A visit to the Bronx was also on my list during my stay in New York City. I booked the South Bronx Renaissance tour. After checking in, the guide Marcus, started to talk and talk and talk. He loved his own jokes. After a good 50minutes we took the metro to the Bronx. He was very knowledgable about this area,... More

Used our New York Pass for tour, but would have worth the purchase price. Guide was up on history which was very informative. The stop for frozen hot chocolate was perfect!

We did this tour using our New York Pass. It was very good and something a bit different to do. It was nice to see the NY skyline from across the river. Being afraid of heights I was a bit worried about walking over the bridge but you don't look directly down to the water. DUMBO is a nice area.... More

We did two tours thru Inside Out tours (using our New York Pass). Our first tour was the new Highlights of Midtown Architecture tour. The second tour was the Brooklyn Bridge/DUMBO tour. Both were quite enjoyable. I have a horrible mind for names, but I think James was our tour guide on the DUMBO tour (and he was great). My... More

Totally worth the money. It was really informative and a great walk. Although it was really really hot that day our tour guide Sean took us to a great spot for frozen hot chocolate to cool off. This is my second tour with this company and I've found them to be very knowledgeable and reasonable prices.

If you are expecting a good old hike on this tour think again. Think more a history of Brooklyn Bridge and the DUMBO area on foot and you will get the idea. We had around 30 on our tour, about the right number, anymore would have been too many. James our guide was excellent, engaging and knowledgable, his delivery was... More

Informative and entertaining you'll learn a lot about the bridge and Brooklyn borough. Bring good walking shoes, camera, and if hot, a bottle of water. Be sure to get the frozen hot chocolate at the chocolate shop stop. The tour is well worth the time and money. A tip for your guide is appropriate.

The Highlights of Midtown Architecture tour was extremely interesting, it was amazing to go to the most beautiful buildings in midtown Manhattan, and the ones with the most history behind them too. A must-see.
