We included it in our free self-guided tour of the top 10 attractions in New York City.  But the story behind the bridge is so dramatic that you won’t fully appreciate its magnificence without a professional guide.

What customers are saying:

★★★★★ “A First Class Operation”

On our second tour with City Rover, we conclude this is a first class operation. The Brooklyn Bridge walking tour with Ryan as the tour guide is spectacular. At a pleasant pace, Ryan led us over the bridge and told the incredible story of the determined visionaries who ultimately succeeded in building this monumental wonder of the world along with the trials and tribulations of its making. We then explored DUMBO and Brooklyn Heights. Ryan is very good at his job because he combines his history and knowledge of living in the area with a background in both theatre and more recently a formal education in history. The tour also highlights the quality of the City Rover tours. The small groups make a big difference to the overall experience. We took the Central Park walking tour with Max a couple of years ago and again, it was fantastic. On a final note, check out City Rover’s website for their guide, trips and tricks on using the NYC Metro. The straight forward tips combined with visuals gave us confidence and proved to be a major help when we actually came to using the system. Thank you City Rover for enhancing our NYC vacations.

★★★★★ “Brooklyn Bridge – Great private tour”

Max was a great tour guide for our family group of 5. The tour was everything we wished it to be, - fun, informative, and Max was very engaging and personable. We highly recommend him and his company!

★★★★★ “Brooklyn Bridge, Dumbo walking tour”

Found it very hard to decide on which Brooklyn tour to take. So glad we took this one. Ryan was a great guide, full of history and interesting information on the area he has called home for several years. Plenty of photo opportunities and question time. Also, quite a leisurely pace. Would definitely recommend this tour .

Off the beaten path NYC tours by CityRover:

If you’ve covered some of top attractions and famous places in New York City and want to do some further exploration more focused on neighborhoods and local snack stops, you’ve come to the right place!  Because of our small group sizes and focused itineraries, we can visit some of the best local establishments for snacks and refreshments.

Tour FAQs:

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 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.

Weather: Our public tours take place rain or shine, barring a severe storm in the forecast, in which case we would email or call you and offer options to switch to another tour or reschedule.  If severe weather prevents us from leading this tour and you are unable to switch or reschedule to another, then we would issue you a refund for the tour in question.

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