Overview

On this tour of the Brooklyn Bridge, one of New York’s most recognizable landmarks, you experience the bridge first-hand by crossing it from Manhattan to Brooklyn. As you walk across it, learn from your guide about its history and admire the views overlooking the New York Harbor. Once you reach Brooklyn, the tour continues with a stroll around DUMBO, a trendy artist enclave.

What to Expect

This morning tour begins in front of the Tweed Courthouse in Lower Manhattan, a historical landmark in its own right. Meet your guide and set off on foot for the Brooklyn Bridge.

One of New York’s best-known landmarks, and one of the oldest bridges of its kind in the US, the Brooklyn Bridge is beloved by both locals and visitors. Learn about its rich history from your guide as you enjoy a relaxing stroll across the 1.1-mile (1.8-kilometer) bridge. From the bridge, you can see the Statue of Liberty, Williamsburg Bridge, Empire State Building, and more.

Upon arrival in Brooklyn, the tour continues with a stroll around DUMBO. This neighborhood is known for its art galleries, shops, and restaurants. Head to Jacques Torres Chocolate for sweet treats (own expense), and continue to Brooklyn Bridge Park—with waterfront views—where the tour ends.
