Great tour, walking across the bridge was a fab (although crowded) experience & our guide was great. My son especially loved hearing about the war of independence and the tour gives you a great insight into Brooklyn. Don't think it needs the stop at Jacque Torres, could have been a 2 hour tour without this stop off. Great views of... More

We Had James as tour guide and he made the tour a living trip down histori lane by using people from the group when he was telling us about the different names of the histori.

This tour was interesting, full of information and amazing. It was wonderful to be armed with the history of gospel before being born away by the choir and soloists at the service. Our guide Louddie (sp?) was wonderful and she clearly loved her job. She shared not only her beautiful voice but hey soul add well. This tour is a... More

Walking tours are, in my book, perhaps the best way to see and experience an area. The Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO tour not only gave my wife and I the history of the area from a local perspective, they also took us to places that we would have never known about let alone visited. I would definitely recommend it.

Thanks to Ludy to give us an excellent review about the Brooklyn bridge history, she is very passionate about NY, its history and its neibourghoods, I would recommend this tour to everyone visiting the big apple, because you will learn a lot about his history. It´s not only a pedestrian walk, you can be inmersed in the history.

I went to this tour with my parents. The tour was excellent, we could get known a lot of interesting information about gospel music, our guide, James was very entertaining, for example he made us singing gospel songs. The walk in Brooklyn was beautiful. At the end the church service was a little weird for us, we expected a gospel... More

Ludy was an absolutely amazing tourguide! Besides from all the things she taught us about Brooklyn and the bridge and all the beautiful things she showed us, we had a brilliant conversation about the importance of history. Best tour I had in NYC. So good.

Ludy, our guide, was simply awesome. She is passionate about her job and you can definitely feel it. The Bronx tour is one of the most interesting I had during my trip in NYC, since I discovered something about that borough that I would have never had the chance to know. It is definitely a great tour, and an amazingly... More
