DUMBO walking tour was great. Our tour guide Bob was
very friendly and though the website says it last
about 90 minutes, it lasted longer than that as Bob,
proceeded to take us to some other lovely spots
around DUMBO even when some of the people from the
tour had left. He's very knowledgeable and friendly
and even bought chocolate chip cookies from a local
bakery for everyone in the group. The actual walk on
the bridge is lengthy and crowded and you WILL lose
your tour guide on and off while you walk the
bridge, but you need not rush. we stopped many times
on the bridge for picture-taking and Bob waits at
the end of the bridge for everyone in the group. Not
a bad way to spend an afternoon. Happy
"Bob was a great tour
guide! He is genuinely interested in history and
sharing his abundant knowledge with others. The
Brooklyn Bridge is SUPER crowded so Bob mainly
speaks before and after the bridge. We loved going
into DUMBO and learning more about the area. There
were about 13 people on our tour and it was the
perfect size. I will definitely participate in
another tour by Bob".
