Full description

Connecting Long Island and Manhattan since 1883, Brooklyn Bridge has become a globally recognised symbol of New York. Cross it in the company of your personal guide before enjoying your own private trip around Brooklyn, encompassing Brooklyn Heights, the bridge itself, and DUMBO. Start at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge entrance. Learn the fascinating history of the bridge and grab photo opps with Manhattan, Brooklyn and New York Harbor in the background. Hear tales of the origins of the ferry, the politics behind the building of the bridge, the complications around its construction, as well as the stories of designers and immigrant builders who made the project happen.

Enjoy strolling along the tree-lined streets of Brooklyn Heights, the finest of all the residential neighborhoods of Brooklyn. Filled with colorful people and beautiful architecture, explore the myriad streets and alleys of America’s first ‘suburb’, including the Brooklyn Promenade, for absolutely unbeatable views of Manhattan. From the promenade, walk down to the ferry landing area and explore a small part of DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). Formerly a manufacturing and industrial district, it is now a destination for artists and creatives alike, boasting many art galleries and high-end boutiques.
