More history
Seanna_D, Nov 2021
The tour could use more history and less general information like “that’s the Statue of Liberty”. The dumbo portion is hard to do on a weekend because the area is swarming with tourists. There were strange facts choices, as we were walking by the place where Walt Whitman worked, The tour audio instead decided to highlight a shake shack?? Not even the first shake shack, just a random one. I also think it could include more of Brooklyn heights which has so much more history and many significant sites. The tour doesn’t even take you on the promenade or by Arthur Miller’s house. But it was nice to generally have a structured walk all a beautiful fall day.
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thanks for your feedback! Our tour balances history stops with famous restaurants (most notably: pizza!), fun facts, and stories about Brooklyn’s recent popularity but we’ll certainly consider your request for more history in our update. We have a dedicated tour for the Statue of Liberty and other Manhattan spots in our Manhattan tours (Battery Park and FiDi), available on (since it’s not the kind of statue that can be covered with just one stop!).
