Uncover the industrial charm of Brooklyn's waterfront DUMBO neighborhood and the East River–spanning Brooklyn Bridge on a private guided walking tour. Learn the history of the bridge and hear the stories behind its 14-year construction as you make your way from Manhattan to Brooklyn, with plenty of opportunities for photos. Once in Brooklyn, tour DUMBO, an up-and-coming area dotted with indie shops and locally owned restaurants at the base of the bridge. End in Brooklyn Bridge Park, where you'll find a handful of brick-and-mortar restaurants with outdoor patios (weather permitting) and the occasional food truck or cart.

We enjoyed the opportunity to not just walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, but to do so with a guide (Gary) who was well informed and able to expand and explain so much of the history and the area around the bridge. He was also able to provide insights as to where to take pictures (and eat in the DUMBO area. Highly recommended!!!
This is an iconic part of New York with tons of history behinds the scenes. Our guide, Gary was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, fun, great sense of humor, and kept our two teenage boys engaged for several hours. We couldn't have asked for more. Besides the tour, Gary helped us with our transportation arrangements, actually took us to a restaurant and had us seated inside at the end of our tour! Way above and beyond our expectations and loads of fun. Highly recommended!
Gary was great, he told us lots of information at the correct pace. The bridge is a great was to see the city from a different perspective. We went to a fab pizza place Juliana's, at the end of the tour which Gary recommended .
Our tour was more than described because of our excellent guide, Gary. Though crowded because of the holiday crowds, we had a flawless, enlightening, and humor filled tour. Our out of town guests were very pleased with our tour, and the time frame was perfect.
We had a nice time. Gary was our tour guide and was friendly and knowledgeable. We felt comfortable with him as he guided us over the Brooklyn Bridge and parts of Brooklyn Heights.. We went on a Sunday and it was hot but not too crowded. I recommend this tour.
