“great area!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

The best spot in Brooklyn! Loved the shops and restaurants! Even though it was raining, there was a lot to do. It was fun to just wander around.

“Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO neighborhood tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

I enjoyed this tour but i felt we did a bit too much standing around and listening to history about the Brooklyn brdige and would have like to have been guided around Brooklyn more and given more history of the place. still worth the walk. there is one bathroom stop along the way and at the end of the tour you come to the wharf and there are bathrooms there too. the guide helped you to find the next place to explore or told you where to catch the next subway or go back to Manhatton on a boat.

“Manhattan to Brooklyn NYC walking tour Brooklyn bridge and dumbo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

My daughter and I really enjoyed Uncle Jeffery's tour, even in the pouring rain. It take a real artist to keep the spirits high in the group in pouring rain and this guide does. Loved the history, loved the songs, loved the chocolate !!!

“Once upon a time in America.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

Loved the film and to see the actual streets and area that were used in the movie was inspiring. Our group even managed to recreate some of the shots which have turned out remarkably well, in black and white of course. Well worth a visit if you are a fan of the movie, if not experience a vibrant working class neighbourhood working away in the shadow of Manhattan.
