Our Broadway show was canceled last minute due to Covid so we booked this tour. Glad we did. Really got us in the Christmas spirit. Loved the over the top lights! Antonio was a terrific guide and Mario was a fantastic bus driver.

Private Brooklyn Walking Tour: Brooklyn Bridge DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights
This tour was a definite highlight of our week in the city! David was a FANTASTIC guide!! He engaged equally well with my wife and me as well as our teenage kids. He has a deep knowledge of the area. He shared history and some celebrity information related to the area. He worked in coffee (and Shake Shack - for the kids) stops along the way. He took care of us from the start and made sure that we knew how to get to our next destination after the tour. My kids fondly referenced David several times in the days following our time with him. We highly recommend this tour!!

I enjoyed hearing about the area and getting history on the businesses we visited. Alex selected a nice variety of foods for us to sample. I enjoyed my first egg cream and acquired a real appreciation for this crust pizza.
