What you'll do

Take a bike tour of Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn Bridge Park and the DUMBO warehouse district. After a quick tour of City Hall area, we roll over the Brooklyn Bridge with stops at the Manhattan and Brooklyn towers, for the perfect photo ops of the gorgeous Wall Street skyline. While there, I'll share historical insights into the twin icons of New York City's East River: the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. We'll continue on to the charming brownstone streets of Brooklyn Heights, where you'll see some of the most historic and luxurious homes dating back to the 19th century. After a stop at the beautiful Promenade, we'll zip through New York City's newest, most innovative and beautiful 85-acre waterfront playground, the Brooklyn Bridge Park (just opened in 2010). There will be stops and photo ops galore in the shabby-chic shipping and warehouse districts of DUMBO, Vinegar Hill and the Brooklyn Navy Yard. You’ll get a peek into the history of Brooklyn’s maritime shipping industry that once thrived on these docks and cobblestone streets.
Other things to note
Novice bikers are welcome. Mostly bike paths and low-traffic, residential streets in Brooklyn. I take seriously my guests safety.

Where you'll be

The sweeping vistas of the Brooklyn Bridge, exteriors of noteworthy Brooklyn brownstones, such the home Cher lived in in "Moonstruck." After we take in the magnificent view from the promenade we'll see how defunct shipping piers have been converted into a beautiful and functional 21st century park. Then we'll see warehouses built to store coffee, tobacco and Brillo pads, that are now chic shops, swank restaurants and luxurious lofts.

Rated 5.0 out of 5 from 40 reviews.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. Scott did a great job explaining the history behind the area and we really enjoyed biking the bridge. Scott took us to some great photo spots so bring your camera!

Biking the area is the best way to learn about an area. Scott was a fun and knowledgeable guide. He gave us a great introduction to the Brooklyn Bridge/Heights area. We highly recommend this tour.

This waterfront tour was thoughtful and well-planned out and gave us a beautiful experience of all the top places in Brooklyn. My friend and I could have not done this on our own and it was definitely worth having someone guide us, especially when crossing the Brooklyn Bridge. Overall, amazing experience and would 100% recommend trying it out.

Brooklyn Bridge Park is a must see and Scott does a wonderful job showing the Bridge and Brooklyn itself as a lead up to the park. Highly recommended.
