This tour was excellent! I'm a native New Yorker, and I'm also a fan of history, but our tourguide, Max, blew me away with his wealth of knowledge. The best part is that he's a great storyteller. He doesn't just throw facts and numbers at you. ...continued

My husband and I went on the Bridge tour this past weekend. We have been on at least 4 different walking tours and Max by far is the best. He is very informative and knows so much about the area. Don't miss out on his tours! You won't be sorry!

Despite the fact that this took place on a day during a record-breaking heat wave, our guide Max kept us cool with complimentary water and kept us fascinated with "cool" facts about lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. I have been on other tours with...continued

I had a pleasant Sunday afternoon walking the Brooklyn Bridge with our tour guide Max. I liked that it was a small tour group so I didn't have to squeeze in to hear the historical facts. The lovely thing about the tour was Max. He was very...continued
