I love to do the walking/foodie tours in NYC and glad to find one so reasonable in price as City Rover. Ryan was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable on the history of the building of the Brooklyn Bridge and also entertaining in his storytelling. I especially appreciated the fact that he was very easy to hear as he has a nice strong voice. I will definitely do another City Rover tour on my next trip.
We did the City of Dreams tour as well as the Brooklyn Bridge tour. The City of Dreams tour was nothing less than awesome! Max was so informative and knowledgeable. We saw so much and learnt so much history. We made stops at local bakery and deli and the old pub was very cool.

The Brooklyn Bridge tour with Ryan was fantastic!!! He told the story of the bridge with so much vibrance and enthusiasm and really kept the tour upbeat. He was also very knowledgeable and you could tell he really loves his job. He was also very helpful at the end, helping us get to our next destination and even escorted us to the correct subway station in the pouring rain.

The nice thing about these tours is that the groups are small which make it much more personable and you really get a chance to talk to your guide and ask as many questions as you would like.

These tours are a must!!

Sure, you can walk across the Brooklyn Bridge for free, and marvel at the structure and enjoy the exercise. But a walk across the bridge with Rover Ryan takes this to a new level. The walk was a fascinating experiential history lesson -- well worth the fee -- for 3 and a half hours of memorable entertainment. The time flew by. Ryan's style and knowledge were outstanding. Next time we are in NYC, we plan to take another CityRover Walk.

Additional Tour Info

How strenuous is this walk? This walk covers about 3 miles on foot in about 3.5 hours.  The terrain is mostly flat and the pace is moderate, though there is a bit of an incline to get across the Brooklyn Bridge and to get up to Brooklyn Heights.  If you can walk up a flight of stairs without losing your breath, then you have nothing to worry about.  If you feel that this may be too strenuous for your age, level of fitness, or state of health, then please consider joining another CityRover tour or contacting us for a private tour.

What About Kids? Our public tours are not ideal for young children, as they involve a lot of walking and cover topics geared to adults.  If you would like to tour with us and have children ages 10 and younger, please contact us about a private tour.   That said, there are 2 “child” tickets ($25 each) available for each public tour for children ages 12 and under.

Meeting Point: Detailed meeting point instructions will be emailed to you once your reservation has been processed.  The tour starts in Manhattan’s Downtown near City Hall Park.  It ends 3.5 hours later in Brooklyn Heights near the A, C, 2, 3, and 4, 5 subway lines, as well as restaurants and bars in the area.

Stops: There will be a restroom break during our walk.  Each participant will also be offered a complimentary bottle of water on the walk and a small snack along the way.  A meal prior to the tour is highly recommended.

Are gratuities included? Guide gratuities are not included in the tour price, so if you enjoy your tour, tips are very much appreciated.
