Response from Host, Mar 2023
You guys were a Tour Guide's dream. I hope you like the pizza at Grimaldi's
A total joy! Fabulous guide and tour
SUSAN_S, Dec 2022
Gary was an absolute gem! He greeted us with energy and enthusiasm and was full of amazing stories and humour. His knowledge and passion were immense and he had some brilliant and illuminating pictures on his iPad. Hugely enjoyable tour which we were so glad we’d had. Gary also roused our interest to explore many other places in the limited time we had in NYC. An absolute joy… Thankyou !
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Oh my gosh, thank you so much for your kind words! Trust me, I am blushing. You 2 were a tour guides's dream.
Absolutely brilliant ....
Philippa_C, Nov 2022
Gary was an amazing tour guide and brought to life so much about the political and economic history surrounding the Brooklyn Bridge and DUMBO. it was an awesome tour and even our son, who is 20, really enjoyed the experience. Those of you with 20 year olds will know that's not something you'd often hear! Gary was an all-round brilliant guy and helped us immensely in navigating our way back as we'd booked trips back to back not really understanding the proximity in geographical locations between the two. Gary, you were amazing - keep going and enjoy. We hope to meet you again one day.
Response from Host, Nov 2022
I don’t know what else to say except thank you. You 3 were great to be with and I am so glad that you had a good time with me.
Great views of the city and learned alot!

Great experience.
Sharon_W, Apr 2022
Gary was a great guide - enormous knowledge , great attitude. I really appreciate his efforts to engage our 9 and 11 year olds. They went from complaining WHY did we have to do a walking tour to really enjoying it.
Response from Host, Apr 2022
Your children were absolutely great to be with on a tour. I am very happy they liked the tour and that your husband has seen the brilliance of Tony Curtis & Burt Lancaster in the one of a kind Sweet Smell of Success.
Best walking bridge tour
chriscassisi, Mar 2022
Gary was absolutely fantastic. This is our second tour of the bridge and while the first was good this was the best tour we could have asked for. There is no reason to look any further for a tour experience. The cost was fixed for a private group up to 8
Great tour of the bridge and DUMBO!
Tammy_C, Oct 2021
The weather wasn’t the greatest, but it was a great tour! I learned a lot of history about the Brooklyn Bridge and NYC. Plus, Adam Driver was shooting a movie in DUMBO. I was nervous about tiding the subway alone. My tour guide was nice enough to walk me to the subway and help me get a metro card and steered me in the right direction of Coney Island! I highly recommend this tour!
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Thank you so much for your kind words and I hope that Nathan's was all that you hoped it would be.

Thank you so much for your kind words. You 2 were so great to take around. I am glad to know that you made it safely back to Cleveland.
Great experience!!
Mary_W, Jul 2018
We enjoyed the opportunity to not just walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, but to do so with a guide (Gary) who was well informed and able to expand and explain so much of the history and the area around the bridge. He was also able to provide insights as to where to take pictures (and eat in the DUMBO area. Highly recommended!!!

Paul B, Aug 2017
This is an iconic part of New York with tons of history behinds the scenes. Our guide, Gary was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, fun, great sense of humor, and kept our two teenage boys engaged for several hours. We couldn't have asked for more. Besides the tour, Gary helped us with our transportation arrangements, actually took us to a restaurant and had us seated inside at the end of our tour! Way above and beyond our expectations and loads of fun. Highly recommended!

Gary was great, he told us lots of information at the correct pace. The bridge is a great was to see the city from a different perspective. We went to a fab pizza place Juliana's, at the end of the tour which Gary recommended .

Our tour was more than described because of our excellent guide, Gary. Though crowded because of the holiday crowds, we had a flawless, enlightening, and humor filled tour. Our out of town guests were very pleased with our tour, and the time frame was perfect. Highly recommended.

Katy J, Jul 2016
We had a nice time. Gary was our tour guide and was friendly and knowledgeable. We felt comfortable with him as he guided us over the Brooklyn Bridge and parts of Brooklyn Heights.. We went on a Sunday and it was hot but not too crowded. I recommend this tour.
