Amazing tour. A guide with lots of wits. Calm and engaged at the same time. Could capture the whole group of app. 30 people including children, teenagers and grown ups. He thought us history like it was stories and we even forgot the freezing cold weather. I really recommend this tour

My family recently did this tour with Sean. It was great to learn about the history of African Americans and how they came to be in New York. We were taken to places that i am sure the average tourist would not know about. Well worth it.

We were guided by marco for the tour. Had a great knowledge of the bridge etc, he presented the tour well. Make sure you take something to eat with you though as tour started at 11 and finished at 1:30pm rather than the posted 1pm.

On a very windy wet day on 29th March Ryan met us at Tweed Court House 20 minutes before tour was due to depart. He was charming. He gave us a brief resume and directed us to the restrooms. On meeting back at 11.00am he took us on a brilliant informative tour and kept our spirits up in the challenging... More

I went on the tour on Saturday 29th March at 1100hrs, our tour guide was Ryan. Our party of 3 were from the UK (England) and it was our first visit to NYC. The weather was horrendous with rain and wind however due to Ryans' enthusiasm and amazing level of knowledge of the Brooklyn Bridge and Dumbo we didn't care... More

Stacey and her staff are awesome! The Southeastern Region of Jack and Jill was extremely pleased with the tours, the willingness to assist our regional chair in charge of the trip, and the tour guides knowledge. Overall, our group of 235 was excited about what they learned and the the experience of seeing the rich history of Brooklyn. Inside Out... More

The 2.5 hour walking tour unfolds like a story about Brooklyn and the building of the bridge. Marcos, our guide, was very knowledgeable and personable. A great value.

We had a wonderful tour! The tour guide was very knowledgeable - he had his master's degree in American History, so you can say he was an expert. I learned a ton of things I never realized and the stops were great. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who has a love of history or who enjoys learning!

What an entrance "Uncle" Jeffrey made! He engaged us from the word go and had me enraptured for the whole 3 hour tour! The tour was extremely interesting and he whetted our appetite to learn more about beginnings of the New York we know today. Highly recommended.
