Beautiful tour. Though I live in Westchester I love Brooklyn and hope someday to live there. I've taken several guided tours of Brooklyn and this one was by far the best. The guide, Onell was very knowledgeable and engaging; a Brooklyn native with infinite interesting information about his home turf. The tour route included areas of beauty I had never seen, along with discoveries in areas I thought I knew well. I liked the combination of guided walking and comfortable riding in a mini bus small enough to navigate the smaller roadways. The driver was excellent, too. Good company and a totally enjoyable experience. I highly recommend NYSee's tour of Brooklyn.

Katonah, you're just up the river! Thanks for popping into the city for the day to take our Brooklyn Grand Tour. We love this new tour, it's our baby, and we're happy to hear a BK enthusiast like yourself found it engaging, and even surprising! Greatly appreciate your kind words. Be sure to come back in for one of our other two tours.

My partner and I really enjoyed this tour. Fred is a great guy, and he makes it enjoyable. You get a good overall experience of the main sights of NYC! It is very professional, and well run. We would have done the Brooklyn tour too if it was available at the time. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

Thanks a ton for your great review! Fred, our Owner and your guide, truly is the quintessential New Yorker; it's in his blood, and he conveys this love of our city to our guests. Sorry you didn't get to our Brooklyn Grand Tour. Give us a call or email us if you're ever back in the city, and we'll book you up for it!

We went on a tour with Fred on Feb 16th and it was great- got to see alot but didnt feel rushed and was a way to see the city with someone who knows what he is talking about. Would definately reccomend this tour to anyone.

We greatly appreciate your review, and the fact that you made note of our combination walking/riding. We pride ourselves on this, making NYSee Tours one of the only tour operators in NYC to do so. It just allows our guests to get a broad-range experience of the city, while also hitting the streets to soak in the buzz and be among New Yorkers. We hope to see you again soon on one of our other tours, the Get Acquainted East Side Tour, the Brooklyn Grand Tour, or a private, customized tour all your own. Thanks for choosing NYSee Tours!

It was fun not being stuck on a bus like other NYC tours. Our host, Lance, was very knowledgeable and made us appreciate where we were. The tour also gave us context of the city and its history. On this tour we ended it off by taking the subway back; that was helpful. The booking process was easy, especially since we were booking from South Africa, and other reviews found on tripadvisor helped us choose NYSee Tours. Great tour, tour guide and experience - we benefited from it and know how to navigate around the city more! Looking forward to try their other tours!

Love our guests from abroad - thanks for choosing us, all the way from South Africa! We had a great time with you on tour, Lance said it was a blast. Glad you found the subway ride back uptown helpful, we love showing our guests the more local side of the city. Hope you can join us for one of our other tours soon! And thanks for posting your pictures, as well.

If you like tours with loads of information about the history of buildings, parks, the city itself, this is the tour for you! Our guide Fred seemed to be a walking encyclopedia of New York, with fascinating stories and information. There was quite a bit of walking on the tour, which lets you see more of the city, but if you are not a great walker you might want to sit this out. We got to see a lot of Manhatten either from the bus or on foot, and truly enjoyed our tour. Highly recommended.

Wow, such kind words! Thank you Toronto, Canada! Fred is not only a wealth of information (and a pretty cool guy), but he's the owner of NYSee Tours. So consider yourselves extra lucky that he guided your group! Our new and improved Get Acquainted West Side tour that you took is fantastic look at the west side of Manhattan. Now that you've seen the this side of the island, join us to check out the east side on our Get Acquainted East Side Tour, or Brooklyn on our Brooklyn Grand Tour. Thanks!
