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!

The guide was very good, loved the tour and the insights into the graffiti scene! The stories and recommendations about this part of Brooklyn were great and very memorable.

Jeff did a great tour. Purchased tickets as a gift for my partner and we had a great time hearing about the graffiti and street art of Bushwick, and taking pictures.

The tour guide was sooo knowledgable that it was amazing. We enjoyed it a lot and learned a lot as well. Thanks Ela Weiss and family

Although there wasn't a lot of walking, we saw and learned a lot about street art.
