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

Just finished the tour with Marcos, and it was stellar. Great insight into the Bronx and its renaissance, and some great knowledge and understanding about the Bronx's cultural contribution to contemporary culture and Hip Hop culture. Great tour and great guide... Thanks Marcos!

Our guide Ludie ( I apologise if it's misspelt!) was passionate about her hometown, and really went the extra mile to make us feel like we were taken under her wing. We were fascinated by the history and she took us to see the best views of the city (as well as the best chocolate shop in DUMBO!) Ludie went... More

Booked this tour through the NY Pass. Our tour guide, Sean, was knowledgeable and set a good pace for the tour. What beautiful views! We loved spending time in the DUMBO area when the tour was over as well. This is something we never would have dared to do if not for the tour.

Great tour with a very knowledgeable tour guide. The group size was a little large 35 people which made it hard for everybody to hear her talking about all the stories surrounding the bridge. Great to walk over the bridge .

My son and I joined the group slightly late, so I didn't catch the name of our guide, but she was very knowledgable and a 'born and bred' New Yorker. She made the tour fun and interesting and brought the historical facts to life with her narrative. We thoroughly recommend this tour!

Absolutely brilliant tour. This is a historical tour. There is a lot of narrative. If you just want to walk over the bridge, this tour is NOT for you. However, if you want to learn about the bridge, and the history of Manhattan & Brooklyn and the hows and why's of the bridge being built, this is the tour you... More

This was a very interesting and informative tour. Our tour guide was terrific. We had actually planned to leave the tour half way thru due to the heat but she was doing such a great job that we decided to stick it out, and we are glad that we did.
