Description

On this private walking tour you and your party will have an unforgettable walk over the famous Brooklyn Bridge that was completed in 1883. Enjoy the amazing views and learn about the incredible story of its construction. Once in Brooklyn, discover the trendy Dumbo neighborhood, the new Brooklyn Bridge Park with terrific views of the Manhattan skyline, and the quaint streets and brownstones of historic Brooklyn Heights. Take a break at a popular DUMBO café, which will include a small complimentary treat. You’ll leave the tour with great photos and lots of memorable stories.

The tour begins in Downtown Manhattan, where you will learn about some important landmarks before making your way towards the Brooklyn Bridge. Then spend about 45 minutes learning about and walking over the famous mile-long bridge. Take time to stop for great photos, learn about the tragedies and triumphs involved in the construction of the bridge and about the incredible role and contributions of the Roebling family. You'll come away knowing all about the "bends".

The rest of the tour is spent in Brooklyn, exploring two very distinct neighborhoods -- the formerly industrial and now trendy DUMBO and the 19th-century charming, historic district called Brooklyn Heights. Along the way, stop for a nice little treat and a great cup of coffee (optional, not included) at a popular DUMBO cafe, then check out the amazing skyline views from the Fulton Ferry Landing in Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Choose from a 3-or-4-hour tour with just you and your party.

It is ideal for first-time visitors and repeats alike.
