We hired bikes and asked for a guided tour over the Brooklyn bridge...we were given a map that was circled with the points we should look out for!! Not the guided tour we were expecting and therefore not an enjoyable experience. People should be sure they make their expectations very clear...I thought we were VERY clear but it seems not!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Because our guided tours depart on time, we can't always catch up any late arrivals to the tour group. It looks like our colleagues tried to give you directions for a self guided ride so you could still enjoy the ride. I would like to invite you to... More

We had family in town this weekend. Although they did not have a lot of time we really wanted them to experience Blazing Saddles Brooklyn Bike Tour. My wife & I did this tour earlier this summer with our guide Smiley and we both loved it. On Saturday morning we arrived at Pier 17 at 10 a.m. & even though... More

We hired two bikes using our New York Pass for an afternoon and rode alongside the Hudson and up and over the Brooklyn Bridge and back. Fabulous way to see the city.

If you're thinking about hiring from these people don't hesitate. We used our New York passes to get our bikes for the day from this company and were very pleased with the service and the bikes themselves. We collected from Pier 84 on the west side of Manhattan. I loved how comfortable these bikes were, they felt robust, 3 gears... More

We had used Blazing Saddles in San Francisco so knew they were reliable and efficient. We weren't disappointed in NYC either. The staff were friendly, helpful and fun to deal with at both South Street where we started and Pier 84 where we finished. The bikes were in great condition and so easy to ride.

First off, this is not the fault of the tour guide or company. NYC is very busy, riding a bike through it with a group of 20 people is very difficult. Half of the group will catch a light, then you have to sit and wait for 5 minutes. On my tour, two people fell off, we constantly had people... More

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
