The tour was very entertaining, views from the Brooklyn Bridge are amazing. Our guide, Uncle Jeffrey, was full of facts and fun stories, and even though his foot hurt, we took a great walk and he never slowed down. He also sung for us! It was the best guide i had in NYC. Highly recommended!

We did three of the inside out walking tours, the Gospel, Brooklyn bridge and DUMBO and High Line. All were excellent, interesting and informative. They really enhanced our experience of NYC. The Gospel tour with Rudi was the best, her enthusiasm and knowledge, not to forget her great singing made it truly memorable. We would happily do it all over... More

James did an awesome job on the Brooklyn Bridge and Dumbo tour. The weather was horrendous and we really didn't want to participate but James convinced us otherwise. I am so glad we went...he was so knowledgable and engaged all the participants. He went above and behind and made sure that at the end of the tour we got on... More

Marcos is the man, if you want to get to know the NYC. His knowledge of this is city is just incredible. He is passionate about his way of explaining things, and also a very funny person. Definitely recommended.

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

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.
