Fantastic! Our tour guide, Ludie, was very knowledgeable, witty, down to earth, and fun!
We had a wonderful time on the Brooklyn Bridge and afterwards at the chocolate shoppe in Dumbo.
Ludie even provided lunch spot tips and how to reach our next destinations! Highly recommended!

Our guide was very personable and friendly. We were so glad we took the tour instead of just walking over the bridge. She gave us a lot of information on the history of the bridge which gave more meaning to our experience. Even on this rainy cold day we had a memorable experience - thanks to our awesome guide.

This was a great tour! We learned the history of the Brooklyn Bridge and some information about DUMBO. We both thought this was one of our favorite tours we did out of 7 on our recent trip. The guide was very enthusiastic! The tour does talk about art galleries in DUMBO. We did not see these as it mentions so not sure what that was about. A must do. Ask your guide how to get to Brooklyn Heights and spend 30 minutes walking there and back to DUMBO so you can see an incredible neighborhood. Also, this tour ends in Brooklyn Bridge Park. You will either need to walk back across the bridge or look up public transportation from the park to wherever you are staying.

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 :)

Had a great time, especially since I did it with a friend. The walk was not too taxing. And the guide knew his stuff. Well done!

Ryan was outstanding as both a tour guide and as an historian. As I had just finished the book on the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, I was so interested in the history and Ryan was so up on all the tidbits of the history... we loved the tour and his knowledge of NYC and Brooklyn...his presentation was right on...and the timing of the stops and picture taking opps were great...cudos to you all and Ryan.

Overall, a great experience being able to learn the history of the Brooklyn Bridge and be provided with an opportunity to walk over it in person. Ludi was a great guide, with tons of passion and enthusiasm for all of the people and events tied to the building of the bridge itself.

This was a very interesting and worthwhile activity. James was our guide and was knowledgeable, personable, and managed a large group well. James went into great detail about the architects and architecture of the bridge as well the political climate and challenges which took place.

My only criticism was the large size at least 20 not sure of our group, but I didn't ask about usual size before booking so that's on me. Overall, a great learning experience and one I would highly recommend.
