A thought provoking walking tour through a dark piece of NYC history culminating in a moving memorial to hundreds & hundreds of previously forgotten people. Guide was extremely informative without being stuffy & professor like!!

This was a waste of our time. It took 1.5 hours to get over the Brooklyn Bridge as our tour guide would not stop talking. He constantly showed us picture from a book he carried with him. If you are after a history lesson this is the tour for you. If you want an exciting walking tour - look elsewhere

Anyone can walk across the Brooklyn Bridge quickly by themselves but the whole purpose of a tour guide is to give you... More

Fantastic. By far one of the best tours we've been on here in NYC. Marcos our guide was fantastic, approachable and funny. Very informative without being overbearing. Had a great time. Would do it again for sure when we come back to NYC next!

I was initially concerned that this tour may be 'a bit much' for my 8 n 11yr olds, but Marcos our guide managed them perfectly. In fact, the whole walking tour was fun. He was sensitive to the heat so stood us in the shade when he had to chat to us. As he said...."think of the tour as a... More

My daughter and I took this tour Wednesday 03/09 and considered this to be the best and most interesting tour we had taken since being in New York. Unfortunately we can't remember the guide's name but he was so good because he made it interesting and informative at the same time. He was able to impart a sense of what... More

Lindy made this a very heartfelt and memorable experience. I have to say my knowledge of this prior to the tour was pretty slim. So glad I made the choice to do this. I used the New York pass which gave me free entry for this tour.

We did this tour a few days ago. Perfect for a sunday morning. We did it in spanish. One thing i've got to tell is our group was a 28 persons group. Too many for a walkiny tour, and for a guide with no electronic aids. It would be a good idea to use wireless headsets or a little amplificator... More
