Did this walk with my wife and son on 28/01/2015 and it was brilliant. Our guide Marcos was very knowledgeable and guided us with great enthusiasm. Would thoroughly recommend this walk to everyone.

I think you have to know a little bit of the history here to enjoy the tour. For me, I know nothing so sometimes it is quite hard for me to understand who and what the tour guide was talking about. Don't get me wrong, Marcos (our tour guide) was very friendly, enthusiastic and he really loves the place, and... More

Marcos was a great tour guide! He was funny, knew a lot about the Brooklyn bridge and its history. He is a good photographer as well! It was a good opportunity to experience the bridge and part of the DUMBO neighborhood on foot. Including usable insider tips!

If you're looking for a slower paced walking tour and some of history, inside out tours is the group for you! I took several tours with them including the DUMBO/Brooklyn Bridge tour, the slavery and Underground Railroad tour, and the Bronx Renaissance tours, and both Sean and Ludie were absolutely amazing. Their knowledge and passion for NYC history was palpable... More

Really great tour, great cookies at the end of it too. The only issue is the amount of walking that it involves. Worth staying for the end to see a stunning view of Manhattan.
