I took the Brooklyn Bridge tour and Manny was our guide. Despite a cold dreary day I thoroughly enjoyed it. Manny was knowledgeable about the area and history of the bridge. It included riding over the manhattan and Brooklyn bridge and a nice ride in Brooklyn. The pace was not pressured and is fine for all ages. I'm 62.

We had such an amazing tour in the glorious sunshine. Our guide John was totally flexible and responded to our questions and requests. We had a break in a brewery with delicious burger and sandwich. We definitely recommend this tour. You get a unique impression and information about Brooklyn.
