Recent reviews from other tour websites: 'Fantastic experience with tour guide Bruce. Interesting history, stories, views and perspectives of the Brooklyn Bridge, including walking across it, as well as Brooklyn itself including DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights. We had such a good time and learned lots too. Exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend to others.” “Bruce is knowledgeable, interesting, entertaining and a great storyteller. Excellent and courteous professional.” “It’s our 2-d tour with Bruce, and we loved every minute of it! Excellent knowledge of New York, American history and culture, which was literally enlightening. He’s very detailed and illustrated in his explanations about the history, his enthusiasm for what he does made the tour fabulous. He knows a lot about the monuments and buildings that you stroll past on the tour. New York is lucky to have him as a tour guide! I would highly recommend not only tourists visiting, but New Yorkers to go on walking tours with Bruce!”
