Fun tour to get us started in NYC!
Eddy, the tour guide was great and very knowledgeable about Brooklyn and NYC. A little scary riding over the bridges with e-bikes and illegal motorized vehicles on the bike path, but otherwise, it was easy riding. The views from Brooklyn were unforgettable! Very friendly staff!

Richard was awesome!
Richard was amazing! He is a born and raised in Manhattan, local who dove deep into the history for our group. He had rich commentary about every stop, and was always diligent to check in to see if his tour guests were doing well. He even gave us great recommendations to eat after!
