Our Manhattan tour was canceled due to impending rain, but John from Brooklyn Giro Bike Tours offered his Brooklyn tour if we wanted to do it. He sent an Uber to our Manhattan hotel to transport us to participate in his Brooklyn tour. The Brooklyn tour was interesting and fun. John is very knowledgeable about his native Brooklyn, and he helped us appreciate Brooklyn as well. He offered to refund the difference in price of the Manhattan and Brooklyn tours, but we chose a couple of his fun hats instead. He paid for our ferry tickets back to Manhattan, bought us beer on the ferry, plus he was going to Grand Central, so he walked with us and confirmed we knew how to get to our hotel. I've never had such excellent service on a tour. I highly recommend Brooklyn Giro bike tours.

Brilliant way to see a lot of the city

We had a great time on this bike tour, and would thoroughly recommend it as a way to see a lot of the city, and learn some new facts about it too. Robbie, our guide, was full of local knowledge and fun facts which made the experience great fun. The bikes were great too, very easy and lightweight to ride with lots of gears.

Very fun way to discover Manhattan! Our tour eventually lasted in consultation with everyone until 4.30 pm, we had lunch in central park and had a beer on Times square, furthermore a lot of explanation from our guide

We had a fantastic time on this tour. Highly recommend it!! Tom was great and very knowledgeable. We were able to see so much of the city. It would never have been possible by foot. Thanks for a great day!!
