Went on the free Brooklyn Heights tour from Pod 51. So interesting. Can’t say enough good things about the guide, Greg, and the information shared that I would never have known. Highly recommend.

Walking tour was enjoyable. It is really a nice way to appreciate New York with a guide who knows the area so well. Greg met us at the hotel and took us by metro to Brooklyn and Dumbo. Very convenient for a solo traveler.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
