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 may not be appropriate for young children, as they involve a lot of walking and cover topics geared to adults. Further, some of our tours reference adult content some parents may deem inappropriate for children. On this particular tour, references may be made to paralysis and death. That said, there are 2 “child” tickets available for each public tour for children aged 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 couple of small snacks along the way. A meal prior to the tour is recommended.
Are gratuities included? Guide gratuities are not included in the tour price, so if you enjoy your tour, tips are very much appreciated.
