WOW!!! Great tour. You walk a lot so be ready. This tour is a great way to get to see the Willamsburg and DUMBO neighborhoods of Brooklyn with part of Chinatown and the Lower East Side of Manhattan. You do walk across the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Willamsburg bridges. It's a challenge but a lot of fun. It's a great highlights tour.

This encounter was a very good way for me, first time to NYC, to get oriented. The price was VERY reasonable. After the tour I felt confident to tackle the subways myself and just walk the street of NYC--this coming from a guy who swore "I will NEVER go to New York!" I am now planning when I'm going to return.
