Add to that, Dottie is a charming, expert guide with whom it's fun to explore. I highly recommend this... More

Even people who were born and raised in Brooklyn commented that they learned history they never knew before on this tour! Very high level and detailed overview of history and culture of Brooklyn and Wall Street area. Individual headseats meant you could hear everything while very well.. Ferry across East River was delightful!
