We went on the Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO Neighborhood Tour with Ryan and he was awesome. He knew what he was talking about and had a lot of background on all of the sights. Great experience if you go to NY!

Our guide Alicia (forgive our spelling if this is incorrect) was EXCELLENT! This was our second visit to NYC in twelve months - but our first visit to Brooklyn Bridge & DUMBO. This was undoubtedly one of the highlights of both trips and we cannot recommend this tour highly enough.

My family and I were so excited to go on a walking tour of the Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO, but had no idea exactly what to expect. WOW, what an AMAZING experience! Marcos was so knowledgeable about the bridge and about DUMBO, and made it such an amazing trip! We learned more than we ever thought we would, and are... More

We recently had the pleasure of having Ryan as our tour guide for this tour. From the get-go he was engaging, energetic, hilarious, and FULL of fascinating knowledge about the history of the Brooklyn Bridge and area. His performing arts background serves him very well in his role as tour guide - he sucks you in and keeps you engaged... More

As a life long resident of NYC I was amazed at how little I knew about this subject. This is a must tour ! The tour guide was excellent. I will recommend this tour to others , especially New Yorkers. Thanks

Sean ran a really informative and well conducted tour. He was passionate and knowledgeable about this part of USA history. Not being American we didn't appreciate the sheer scale and horror of slavery in this country and the tour was really moving. We booked this on line with the New York Pass and there were no problems (although we had... More

All three of us were thrilled with the tour guided by Marcos. His insight of the area and the way of putting things into context was great. At this time of the year we were sensible enough to use sun lotion in advance and bring drinking water with us. We still had to buy more on the way.

This tour was one of the highlights if our visit to New York. Using the New York Pass, we pre-booked the tour and were glad we did as it is very popular. As a warning the tour takes four hours. The walking tour takes two and the church service a further two. But it is definitely worth giving up your... More

My sister and I did the Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO tour with Ryan. We both agreed he was the most energetic and enthusiastic guide we have had. He made hearing the background history interesting and fun. And he also presented an accurate history. The tour really is focused on the bridge and why not. It is one of the most... More

Sean was a great tour guide, even in face of hot weather and a very large group. He is very knowledgeable, and passionate about what he speaks. I was impressed that even my young teenage daughters were engaged in stories of New York's treatment of slaves and the dangerous work to free them. One suggestion might be to highlight that... More
