    Well Worth It!
    Wonderful day crossing the Brooklyn bridge and visiting DUMBO. Our college history professor tour guide Kevin was fun, informative and had much to share as a life long New Yorker. Highly recommend!

    Thumps up for Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO
    Really enjoyed the tour. Kevin was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Group was not too large which made it manageable because the bridge was crowded on a beautiful Saturday.

    Fantastic Tour of Brooklyn Bridge & DUMBO
    This is the first guided walking tour I have ever been on and it won’t be the last. Our Italian tour guide Alessia was very friendly and knowledgeable. She spoke very well about the history of the bridge, the people involved and also about the DUMBO area in Brooklyn. The walk over the bridge was fantastic and gave great views of Manhattan, Manhattan Bridge and also of Brooklyn. The bridge is very busy and we were advised to keep to the right hand side and not to stop for photographs because Alessia through her experience had preselected 3 stops for photographs. Most people ignored this advice. On a clear day and with a decent camera you could also get a photograph of the Statue of Liberty. On the day that I crossed, there was a film crew at the Brooklyn side of the bridge and Alessia later informed us that Spike Lee had been on the bridge. The DUMBO area is very cosmopolitan and has a lot of restaurants serving up a wide variety of food. Alessia also advised that Brooklyn Heights is worth a visit but I had other plans back in Manhattan. To return to Manhattan I decided to take the ferry to Wall Street which was $4 for that single journey. The ferry service was pretty regular so I did not have to wait long.

    Brooklyn Bridge & DUMBO Neighborhood Tour, excellent insight of these historical areas
    We did the Brooklyn Bridge & DUMBO Neighborhood Tour with Alisa and I would definitely re commend this tour in which you get a historical insight of the city hall area, brooklyn bridge and Dumbo. Our tour guide was very helpful and enthusiastic answering questions about the history of all these areas.

    Engaging, knowledgeable guide. Fun for teens.
    Kevin was fantastic and so knowledgeable about the topic. Shared this tour with my 16-year-old sons, and it was a highlight of our 3-day trip to NYC for all of us!

    Brooklyn Bridge was far from DUMB!
    Great communication from the booking of the trip to the meet and greet with the tour guide. Elessia was our guide and she was very good. Great knowledgeable talks in bite size segments. Good experience shown of when to take photos. From start to finish we were captivated by the brilliance of the story and learning about the characters involved in its construction. Fascinating tour would recommend.

    Exceptional tour, with an enthusiastic, knowledgeable guide whose captivating storytelling made the history come alive!
    The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island tour was truly exceptional, thanks to our incredible tour guide. His passion and storytelling abilities were remarkable, bringing each site to life with such enthusiasm and energy that it was impossible not to be captivated. His vivid descriptions and engaging narratives made it easy to imagine the experiences of those who passed through these historic landmarks. The guide's deep knowledge and infectious enthusiasm truly set him apart, making this one of the best tours I've experienced in a long time. His ability to connect with the history and convey it so compellingly made the tour both educational and profoundly moving.

    Great Walking Tour
    I thoroughly enjoyed this Brooklyn Bridge and Dumbo walking tour. Alessia our Italian tour guide was an excellent host and explained the history of the bridge and neighborhood. You get great photo opportunities on the bridge and in Dumbo where you can take the iconic Manhattan Bridge shot. At the end of the tour there are plenty of food options in Dumbo and you can get the ferry across to Wall street if you want and then explore the financial District. Alternatively you can get the subway back to Manhattan.

    Great way to discover Brooklyn Bridge and surrounding area history.
    We had a very good tour with Sean, he was organised, punctual, friendly, spoke clearly, ready to answer questions and had a great knowledge of the area. Would definitely recommend, tour ends in a very nice part of Brooklyn.

    Tour with Steve
    My husband and I joined this tour on May 10, 2024. Our tour guide, Steve, was very knowledgable and provided us with many information about Wall Street and generally New York development. It gave us many learning bites about how money were and are made in New York. Info provided were well detailed. Definitely recommended if you do want to get the most of New York history

Our guide, Stacey, was very well informed. My partner is a historian and she even learned a good deal from the tour. Stacey was very engaged and engaging. Throughout the tour, her passion for history became apparent as she alluded to the research she has conducted to further enhance this tour, as well as other tours in development. We are looking forward to taking more tours. On a COVID note, Stacey was very careful of social distancing and everyone was diligent about wearing their masks. When we arrived, Stacey took our temps.

This tour was incredibly informative and interesting. Our tour guide (think his name was Sean) was very knowledgeable, had a great tour guide voice that carried to everyone and was eager to answer any and all questions. I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in learning more about the subject matter (slavery and the underground railroad in New York) or really anyone interested in the history of New York City in general.

There is so much history that we never learned in school. Stacy led an incredibly informative tour, starting at Bowling Green and ending at the African Burial Ground. We maintained appropriate distance from other participants, so I felt totally safe throughout. Participants receive a link that permits them to use their phones/headphones to hear the guide. If you're looking for a great outdoor activity, this tour fits the bill!

We went on this tour over a year ago and I still find myself thinking about it on a regular basis. I hope that our tour guide, Damaras Obi, is still there! She did an incredible job presenting all of the information along the tour. We learned an incredible amount and found her style to be very engaging. We have been on several tours of this nature, but this one is the one that sticks with us. I could not recommend any more highly. Side note- I said we went in April 2020 (earliest option provided) but it was actually December 2019. Should not have waited so long!

Ludy gave a fantastic and engaged tour. She was more than willing to answer all of the questions my 12 year old had. I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning history not shared in school.

I've done this tour several times with different groups and it's excellent every time. The tour guides know their stuff, and there's always a lot to learn about the city's history that easily goes overlooked. Even with various monuments and historic sites acknowledging our history, it's easy to walk past without stopping to learn.

Thank you for your positive review! You are so right about the historic sights and monuments that are easily overlooked I thought the same when I took the tour. Thanks again.

We learned a great deal and found the whole tour informative. Our tour guide, Donald, was excellent and even though it was at times hard to hear - maybe his microphone wasn't always working, we just stood closer and didn't miss out. He was extremely knowledgeable. So glad we did it.

Thank you to our amazing tour guide, Ludie at Inside Out Tours for leading us on an informative, enlightening, and inspiring journey of New York City's slavery and underground railroad history. We had a group of 16 people. Be prepared to stand a lot and walk a bit, but if you are with Ludie, you will never be bored! She offered a wealth of knowledge, information, and insight into the decisions that shaped a troubling history in NYC and helped us all to leave the tour more informed about how our decisions can help shape a brighter future.

Fantastic!!! Stacey, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable, informative, professional. She spoke clearly and delivered a powerful message of New York City history that is probably not widely known ... but should be.

I can't recommend this tour highly enough. My partner and I learned so much about New York's relationship with slavery and enslaved people throughout history, and how that history is still reflected in New York's sites and buildings (and in America overall) today. Our guide, Donald, was incredibly knowledgeable, as well as friendly and a great storyteller - I honestly wish the tour had been a few hours longer! We will 100% be booking into some of Inside Out's other tours when we're next in New York. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
