  • Explore the new Brooklyn Bridge Park and learn about Brooklyn’s evolution

What customers are saying:

★★★★★ “Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO Walking Tour”

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.

★★★★★ “Best Tours I’ve Ever Been On By Far!!!”

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!!

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 3.5 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.

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.
