Our Manhattan tour was canceled due to impending rain, but John from Brooklyn Giro Bike Tours offered his Brooklyn tour if we wanted to do it. He sent an Uber to our Manhattan hotel to transport us to participate in his Brooklyn tour. The Brooklyn tour was interesting and fun. John is very knowledgeable about his native Brooklyn, and he helped us appreciate Brooklyn as well. He offered to refund the difference in price of the Manhattan and Brooklyn tours, but we chose a couple of his fun hats instead. He paid for our ferry tickets back to Manhattan, bought us beer on the ferry, plus he was going to Grand Central, so he walked with us and confirmed we knew how to get to our hotel. I've never had such excellent service on a tour. I highly recommend Brooklyn Giro bike tours.

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.

Excellent tour with Johannes, our tour guide. He showed us Central Park and a lot of other highlights of New York, like Lincoln Plaza, Broadway, Time Square, WTC, Chelsea piers, etc. Remarkable trip, we enjoyed all 5.

We had a fantastic time on this tour. Highly recommend it!! Tom was great and very knowledgeable. We were able to see so much of the city. It would never have been possible by foot. Thanks for a great day!!

My cousin and I had a fantastic time thanks to the great bikes and even better guide, Richard. Highly recommended!
