Super trip with plenty of background information. Our guide always had the best spots in mind regarding coffee, lunch or a very much deserved ice ccremeclose to the end of our about 30-35 miles and 6 hours trip. Bikes are good. Give them a proper ride on the yard before the tour actually starts to check the shift gear, tire pressure,... as you will ride all day long and you want to be comfortable. No need to bring water bottles, as there is always a chance during the trip to get one in the neighborhoods. Don't forget sunscreen! Will come back for another trip!

An unbeatable way to see Brooklyn.

There is nothing better than taking a bike and riding with a guide and some friends through a new city. Super-recommended. For Brooklyn they still don't have it in Spanish (Oct. 2018) There's no better way to know a new place than getting a bike and ride around with a guide and a few friends. Strongly recommended. They ought to offer it also in Spanish (Oct. 2018)

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.

We highly recommend to take the 6 hour tour, (just considere to take drinking water). John was a amazing guide, we were very happy with the places, explanation, and rhythm of the tour. Thank you John.

Wonderful personalized tour with our guide Seth. Amazing views of Manhattan from several vantage points.
