I also went on the same Sunday brunch tour (same day) with "overpriced tour"...but disagree. A great ride around Brooklyn with interesting information. Love that we had walkie talkies so could listen to the tour guide as we biked (didn't have to stop and listen). Our tour guide was fabulous....Noni....very enthusiastic and friendly along with knowledgeable. saw a nice sampling... More

If you want to waste your money on an overpriced bike ride with terrible food, take the Get Up and Ride Bike Brunch Tour. If it is rated #1 on trip advisor, it is only because there are no competitors. They advertise a "brunch tour" for $68. This consisted of one lukewarm cup of coffee one hour into the ride.... More

Here are the facts: 1) Our Brunch Bites Bike Tour is a bicycle tour that incorporates stops for food, not strictly a food tour. The 3.5 hour bike tour incorporates stops at trendy local eateries so that our guests can get to know the neighborhood (and each other) better. The $65 price includes a bike rental, tour guide, walkie-talkie and... More

Went on the bike tour on September 6th and it was outstanding. We road through all of the Brooklyn neighborhoods and got a great flavor for each neighborhood. The pace was great with frequent breaks for viewing sights and for pizza lunch and snacks. You don't have to be in great shape or be a serious rider to enjoy the... More

If you want to do something different while you are in New York this is the number one thing I would recommend. Cycling round Brooklyn was easily the best thing I did while I was in New York. So, after you've done the Empire State, Times Square etc... take a short subway ride, get on your bike and enjoy 4.5... More

Just got back from our 4.5 hour ride around Brooklyn and wow. In short, it was an amazing tour of all the different neighborhoods, through funky street, old warehouses and beautiful parks. We stopped for cookies, beer, pizza and coffee. I couldn't of dreamed up a more awesome day! I've done a number of bike tours around the world and... More

I went on the bike tour in the beginning of September. Not only was it inexpensive (for all that's included), it was very enjoyable. Our tour guide was HILARIOUS and the views were amazing. It was a relaxing ride and nothing strenuous. All the stops were amazing especially the breakfast Burritos. SO GOOD.

The Brooklyn Brunch tour is THE way to explore the vibrant neighborhoods of Brooklyn and to get to know all the hidden gems! Me and my colleagues enjoyed a great summer outing by bike, with special thanks to our fantastic tour guide Felippe! His enthusiasm, humor and knowledge of Brooklyn contributed to a great afternoon, with delicious treats on the... More

This is a really professional and enjoyable tour and a great way to find out the facts and flavour of Brooklyn. Our guide, James was informative and funny and made the trip a unforgeable experience.

My husband and I did the "Classic Brooklyn" bike tour in October (2013) and it was, literally, the highlight of our week in NY. James was our tour guide and he could not have been more of a gentleman, very pleasant, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We still talk about our ride/tour and recommend it to friends. Just last week (August 2014),... More
