A walk over the Brooklyn Bridge should be on every visitor’s list of “things to do in New York”.


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.

This tour is ideal for visitors who are interested in:

  • Learning about the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn, and Manhattan
  • Exploring NY on foot in a fun, informative, and intimate way
  • Photography & sightseeing
  • Or first-time visitors to NYC

The Brooklyn Bridge is the main star of this walking tour.  And we devote about 1 hour to this iconic span.  But since the tour lasts 3 hours, we also spend some quality time in Downtown Manhattan and devote a couple of hours to the great borough of Brooklyn.

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 hours.  The terrain is mostly flat, though there is a mild incline walking over the Brooklyn Bridge and a short hill to get up to Brooklyn Heights.  You’ll be on your feet most of the time, but one of the advantages of a private tour is that the pace and distance covered can be tailored to your group’s needs (as well as local snack/refreshment stops).

What About Kids? Another benefit of a private tour, if you’re traveling with kids, is that we can personalize it to keep both adults and kids engaged, informed, and entertained.

Meeting Point: The tour typically starts near Saint Paul’s Chapel and ends in Brooklyn Heights.  However, we can pick you up from your hotel, if you’d prefer that option, and end the tour at a place that’s most convenient for you.

Weather: Our 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 reschedule.  If severe weather prevents us from leading this tour and you/we are unable to reschedule, 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, though certainly not required or expected.
