Super trip with plenty of background information. Our guide always had the best spots in mind regarding coffee, lunch or a very much deserved ice ccremeclose to the end of our about 30-35 miles and 6 hours trip. Bikes are good. Give them a proper ride on the yard before the tour actually starts to check the shift gear, tire pressure,... as you will ride all day long and you want to be comfortable. No need to bring water bottles, as there is always a chance during the trip to get one in the neighborhoods. Don't forget sunscreen! Will come back for another trip!

This tour was fantastic. Our guide Jonathan was knowledgeable, fun and charismatic. We went to great spots, had great beer and were with great people. Everything was so easy, which allowed us to truly embrace the experience. We plan to do a tour ever time we’re in town moving forward.

Our guide, Walter, was very knowledgable about the area. He gave a good tour and catered it to the group according to the day. He brought us to the waterfront since it was not too windy. He gave some suggestions about other things to do up in Brooklyn also.

We loved this tour! Lots of history, diverse food and a really great walk for a crisp Saturday afternoon.

Rick was a great tour guide. Very informative and helpful.
