What You Can Expect

Manhattan to Brooklyn NYC Walking Tour: Brooklyn Bridge and Dumbo

View of the Brooklyn Bridge from Brooklyn's Dumbo neighborhood

Begin your one-of-a-kind New York walking tour in Manhattan, in front of the Tweed Courthouse, where your guide will tell you all about the borough of Brooklyn, including its diversity, its position as the most populous borough in New York City and the little-known fact that it was once an independent city. As you walk toward the Brooklyn Bridge, pass Lower Manhattan sites like City Hall, the Tweed Courthouse and the Municipal Building.

While you walk, your guide will tell you about the architecture and history of the Brooklyn Bridge. Learn about the family that constructed the famous bridge and the great losses they suffered during the process. Take in incredible views of the NYC skyline and stop for plenty of photo opportunities. You'll catch views of the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, Freedom Tower and the Chrysler Building.

Once you reach Brooklyn, descend into the neighborhood ‘Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass,’ known as Dumbo. Here, visit a complex of art galleries dedicated to different styles of contemporary Brooklyn art (closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). Enjoy the culture of the neighborhood as you visit the Jacques Torres Chocolate Factory and a hot chocolate shop. Purchase any yummy desserts that catch your eye (you did walk all the way across the Brooklyn Bridge, after all – you deserve a treat).

End your tour in Brooklyn Bridge Park, the largest development in Brooklyn since the creation of Prospect Park. Here you can enjoy scenic waterfront views of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

It was wonderfully fun, informative and entertaining. Included beautiful views and spectacular panoramic photo opps. My tour guide Ryan couldn't have been better!! He was quite simply superb. Very personable, friendly, humorous, knowledgable and quite hilarious in conveying his wide knowledge of the Bridge, the area, the history all around us. He made it lots of fun to get our "history lesson" about the Brooklyn Bridge. I would recommend it to anyone!! Very happy tourist....The art gallery stop and chocolate shop stop were just lovely bonuses. Keep up the good work in providing great tours :)
