From others' suggestions we decided to choose a borough to explore..we had just had 2 excellent tours...First, being guided over the Brooklyn bridge took 1/3 of our tour...rather pricey for a long hot walk..too noisy to hear details while on the bridge..best to start on the other side and point out things..we just walked the entire time...saw a neighborhood of expensive homes...a museum closing. Just read some other descriptions and they included a van...Brooklyn is too big to attempt seeing highlights by foot...It did not seem like we had a professionally trained guide..considering this was the most expensive of our tours, we were very disappointed.
Thank you for your feedback. We have received the following message from our Tour Operator:
This private walking tour is meant to experience the Brooklyn Bridge and the wonderful old neighborhoods of Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo, not of Brooklyn as a borough with all its neighborhoods. Unfortunately, we have no control over the weather and granted it was a hot day, we also have no control over the volume of noise on the bridge. You can hear a guide speak when you are on the bridge but your guide was told you didn't want to stop to let them point out things due to the brace on your foot and it hurt you to stand. Many people cross over the bridge as it is an iconic site. Your experienced tour guide has been in the profession for 15 years and holds a seat on the NYC Guides Associations board. This tour was sold as a walking tour with specific neighborhoods, which you were shown. Since this was a private tour, the price point may be higher than other public tours you may have took that morning. We apologize if you were disappointed and hope you enjoyed the rest of your time in the city.
