Overview

Combine an introduction to Manhattan with a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge in just a few hours, saving time with a guide who knows the best ways around the city to see more in less time. Walk from Manhattan to the trendy Dumbo neighborhood of Brooklyn, and cross the Brooklyn Bridge. Your guide tells you NYC history and fun city facts as you stroll.
  • Walk with your guide over the Brooklyn Bridge and learn about its history
  • Admire views of Manhattan landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and Empire State Building
  • Visit Brooklyn art galleries and see different styles of contemporary art in Dumbo
  • A meeting spot near public transport makes for a stress-free start
Begin this walking tour by meeting the guide in front of the Tweed Courthouse in Manhattan. Learn about the history of Brooklyn en route to the world-famous Brooklyn Bridge. Pass Lower Manhattan sites like City Hall and the Municipal Building along the way.

Walk across the Brooklyn Bridge and learn about its history and architecture. The hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge is one of the oldest in the United States, dating back to 1869, when construction started. It spans 1,595 feet and was the first steel-wire suspension bridge ever constructed. Take in the incredible view of New York City landmarks from here, like the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, One World Trade Center’s Freedom Tower and the Chrysler Building, to name a few.

In Brooklyn, head to the neighborhood of Dumbo, which stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. This area has become one of New York City’s premier arts districts, with venues like the Klompching Gallery, known for contemporary fine art photography; St Ann’s Warehouse, a performing arts institution; and the A.I.R. Gallery, the first all-female cooperative gallery in the United States. (Note: These galleries are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.)

Visit Jacques Torres Chocolate, a popular shop featuring handmade artisan chocolates, for a truffle or cookie — or anything else that’s chocolate, of course.

Finally, wind up the tour at the 85-acre Brooklyn Bridge Park along the East River. Be sure to bring a camera, because the waterfront views of the Manhattan skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge are stunning.

Our guide Kevin was outstanding. He knew his facts, was pleasant, didn't lose any of us. We had beautiful weather. I'm very happy with the tour. It was a present for my daughter and son-in-law for Christmas.

Great way to see and hear about the area! We got some interesting background information that we never would have known. In addition to a stellar view of the city, there are also amazing food choices at the end of the tour!!! My kind of day.

I walked the bridge as my husband was ill. It was amazing construction and interesting history. The day was very cold and rainy, but the tour went on . Our guide was very interesting and knowledgeable with the bridge and Dumbo. I suggest this tour in better weather so you can spend more time in the Dumbo area afterwards.
