Your tour begins at the foot of the Brooklyn Bridge entrance on the Manhattan side. Here you will cross the world-famous landmark, during which there will be ample time to discuss the fascinating history of the bridge and to photograph Manhattan, Brooklyn and New York Harbour. Accompanied by your expert local guide, you will hear about the origins of the ferry, travel across the East River, learn about 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.

From the promenade, you will 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, the area suffered from economic decline and eventually fell into disrepair. Fortunately, due to a renewed appreciation for the architecture of the area and sizable investment, the once vacant factory lofts have now become very attractive destinations for artists and creatives alike.

DUMBO has been transformed into a lively Brooklyn neighbourhood, boasting many art galleries and high-end boutiques, pizzerias, a scenic waterfront and characterful cobblestone streets lined with historical architecture. Your tour finishes at the Time Out Market, where you can enjoy some of the best of Brooklyn’s food and mingle with locals.
