After a number of family visits to NYC, we wanted to explore something outside Manhattan, and this tour was the perfect way to see trendy Williamsburg in Brooklyn. We booked the Brunch Tour on a Sunday morning and it was tremendous fun. Lasting about 3 hours, we were given a bike tour (no hills!) around the Williamsburg and Greenpoint neighbourhoods,... More

I've been to Brooklyn many times to visit but my girlfriend had not been to Brooklyn before. We were in NYC for the weekend and thought this would be a fun & efficient way to see Brooklyn. We were not disappointed. We stopped by Sweet Chick for Brunch, which was down the street from the starting point (which I would... More

After many visits to Manhattan we wanted to check out Brooklyn. Having taken bike tours throughout Europe we knew that there is no better way to see a community. Felipe didn't disappoint. The tour was well-paced and provided a great overview of a diverse and fascinating part of NYC. Brooklyn really lends itself to touring by bike. The use of... More

The tour was well organized and professional Our guide James had an exemplary knowledge of the area and his radio commentary is filled with historical tid bits and an obvious excitement about the new developments to the city. The group was a good size and we met some great people from around the... More

Two of us did this ride on a warm, mostly sunny day and had a great time. Felipe is a natural at his work. He is upbeat and has taken the time to learn all about Brooklyn. We visited a few notable sites, including the Brooklyn Grange, which operates a couple of rooftop "farms." We got to know Williamsburg, Dumbo,... More

I was so excited when Felippe has opened the door of the garage where he stores his bikes - he was promptly able to tell by my facial expression! :) If you want to get out of Manhattan to explore Brooklyn, this is the fastest and best way to do so. Everything was great. If you are in NYC you... More

This was one of the most fun experiences ever! We saw so much of Brooklyn guided by Philipe. He was so sweet, informational, & energetic. I absolutely loved visiting the Navy Yard, especially the Brooklyn Grange Farm. We had super yummy pizza at Best Pizza. We passed by Gleason's gym and Truman Capote's house. It was great to have the... More

Our time with Nick, our guide, was terrific. Our group of eight included a variety of ages from teens to 70's. We saw a side of Brooklyn which would would have missed if we hadn't done this tour. Sunday was a good choice to ride along the streets. The bike path along the water gave us a great view of... More
