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

Today did the Underground Slavery 2 Hour Walking Tour. Guide was interesting and informative and the two hours flew past. It was a topic not offered by many, and it was delivered sensitively ands memorably. Heading to their site now to see what else they offer. Take this tour people!

We went on the slavery and underground railroad tour, unfortunately I can't remember our tour guides name but he had light brown/blonde hair that was very precise and slicked into place. The tour was very interesting giving us a lot of insight into slavery in NYC. Its also a great tour as you see a lot of the lower manhattan... More

Since I can only write one review for both tours/guides and the company itself, I'll say 5 stars. Ryan on the Brooklyn Bridge tour was great. Entertaining, engaging, informative, and easy to hear over the noise. It was a thrilling experience to walk over the bridge for the first time, and the history is fascinating. Pizza in Brooklyn isn't so... More

The Inside Out Tour guide Marcos was great. Very knowledgeable about the area and he made the tour fun. This is something you should really try and do while in the big apple. We did it on the New York Pass which was great value.

I booked InsideOut Tours for a company outing/team building activity - It was a great choice! The tour was a very well organized event from start to finish. Each stop along the way was ready for our group, providing tasty treats and a delicious variety of signature Brooklyn cuisines. We also got to see many scenic and historic sights as... More

Fantastic tour with Ryan who was such an energetic, knowledgeable and educational fun guide. Ryan had us all acting out historic characters who contributed towards the building of the bridge to such an extent that we have retained so much information that usually is forgotten. A wonderful tour and one that we can recommend

This tour is a must. Our tour guide Alicia was the best, very informative about the history of the bridge and took us to a great little chocolate shop in DUMBO. Two thumbs up!!
