We had an amazing NYC WALKING GOSPEL TOUR with Ludy (hope that's the right writing) on a cold and sunny sunday! A lot of news we heard and saw! Thank you so much for your great job, Ludy!

Guide was knowledgeable & passionate about subject, but two things that prevented this from being stellar: [1] guide walked fast, several in group struggled to keep up, and [2] guide inaccurate on a number of historical facts, no doubt relaying from word of mouth / stories. Tour is fun and would recommend, but those who come knowing some of the... More

Since this is a little known area of history, we acknowledge that historians may disagree but we really wish you had spoken up at the time of... More

Huge thanks to the wonderful Ludie and Stacey who walked us around part of the Bronx. The tour was well arranged, informative and fun. We are a family of 5 from Australia and we found the history of the borough and there passion for its continued existence compelling.

Was a really good tour. Our guide James was very informative and friendly. It was a good experience better than walking the bridge on your own. He even takes you to this amazing place to get great hot chocolate. I would recomend to go.

A great tour run at a comfortable pace to keep it interesting without rushing. The tour was made even better by our very friendly guide (Ludie) who was passionate about the history and the city. A great tour that I would recommend to anyone.

We booked the tour via our NY pass. Thanks to Ludie (our tour guide) it was one of our highlights during our NYC visit. Very insightful two hours, which introduce you not only to the amazing brooklyn bridge, but also the Dumbo neighbourhood history.

I loved this tour simply because I am a huge history fan, learning about the people who built the bridge and all their lives changed because of the bridge. I can understand for some people who cared much less about history would find this tour boring. DUMBO is a great neighbourhood and I hope next time I will have much... More
