He was very knowledgeable about this area...very funny and helpful as well! Great guide! So amazing to see the views from both sides of the bridge...as... 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!!

Well organised tour. Our guide was very informative but without overload. Moved at a pace acceptable to everyone with no unnecessary hanging about. Plenty of photo opportunities. Of course you can do this yourself but it is fun to interact with others enjoying the experience and learn at the same time.

I did this tour with my four best sisters and it was truly amazing. From learning the true meaning behind the beautiful buildings at the beginning of the tour, to the burial grounds and memorial at the end of the tour that left the group touched and informed; we will forever be impacted by our history in a way we...

This was by far the best tour that we did. Marcos, our tour guide was funny, informative and very witty. He made the whole experience enjoyable and memorable. I recommend this tour, and while you are in Brooklyn you should take the subway and go to Coney Island. Also wait for the sunset and the night skyline of Manhattan, you... More

Great way to learn about the history of the Brooklyn Bridge and the region. Our guide took us through 2.5 hours of walking, lots of opportunity to stop take pictures and ask questions to understand historical facts. Where the tour ends is a nice park on the Brooklyn side, great area to relax and enjoy the New York skyline. Great... More
