Our guide, Jonathan, was amazing. Despite the fact we were the only ones on the tour, Jonathan, didn't cancel and gave us one of the best tours we have ever had. As we walked across the bridge we received a fantastic history lesson about the building of the bridge. Jonathan paced the walk perfectly and was very understanding about stopping often for photos. We really enjoyed the time we spent walking across the bridge plus we got some amazing photos of the NYC skyline.

Jonathan was a very informative guide, giving you just the right amount of commentary whilst allowing you to enjoy the views and absorb the atmosphere. 2 hours was sufficient for this trip as it was a very hot day but we thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt a lot. Tip: if you are walking back, try walking over Manhattan Bridge for a different experience.

This was an absolutely fascinating tour of this historic landmark. Our guide was very knowledgeable and brought the whole history of the construction of the bridge to life. I would not hesitate to recommend him and the tour wholeheartedly. The whole tour lasted for over three hours but did not seem in any way tedious or arduous. A great time!

Johnathan did an excellent job explaining the history and significance of the bridge. The tour was small and allowed for questions and interactions with the other tourist. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone visiting the Big Apple!!

What a fantastic trip. Johnathan was our guide and what an enthusiastic and knowledgeable man he was. Johnathan works for the historic society and wow did this show he loves this subject and was able to tell us about how the bridge was built and all the politics and 'dealings' that led to the bridge being build. A fantastic tour with a fantastic guide. Johnathan you made the trip.
