I took the Brooklyn Bridge tour and Manny was our guide. Despite a cold dreary day I thoroughly enjoyed it. Manny was knowledgeable about the area and history of the bridge. It included riding over the manhattan and Brooklyn bridge and a nice ride in Brooklyn. The pace was not pressured and is fine for all ages. I'm 62.

Everything worked as the details in the document we got. I highly recommend it so we can save a good amount of money!

My cousin and I had a fantastic time thanks to the great bikes and even better guide, Richard. Highly recommended!
