What a great wat to spend a Saturday morning. We loved the 3 hours we spent touring Williamsburg and Brooklyn Heights. Melissa was a great host and guide. I will definitely be taking others who visit!

This is an amazing walk for those who do not want the usual stop, go, lecture walk.It keeps up with the city. A fast paced, three hour workout. Certain spots are pointed out, and an account of historical facts are shared by Melissa, who leads the group, through the maze of this downtown Brooklyn tour. Do it! This is not for the faint of heart!A short ferry ride is a treat and a long awaited moment of rest.And then once off the ferry, the pace continues. Don’t be intimidated!It’s a challenge, and at the end of the walk, a personal accomplishment, and embracement, of the rythmn and energy of this great city!

I planned this trip with a friend as we wanted to do a tour of historic Brooklyn meets hipster and get some exercise as well. Melissa’s trek did not disappoint! Laughs, history, friendship, NYC. The best day I’ve had in years!Robert K.

Having seen a lot of the more tourist type things in NYC, we wanted a curated adventure that combined smaller lesser known museums with our love for books and independent bookstores. Our guide Melissa put together a customized itinerary that included both as well as lunch recommendations. We thought it was perfect but she would have made adjustments if we wanted them.

We arrived from NJ at Penn Station where we were met by Melissa and for the rest of the day we were in her capable hands. Melissa is an enthusiastic New Yorker who understands the city. She is very personable and does a great job making the day very enjoyable and stress free. The restaurant recommended for lunch was excellent and very reasonably priced. Melissa also recommended an afternoon break at a nice bakery where we were able to sit down and enjoy coffee and desert.

Overall, we had an excellent experience with Urban Adventures NYC.
