A good alternative to meet williamsburg in no time

Taking a day to meet Brooklin is essential for visiting NYC. The visit took place in the afternoon so it was interesting to walk the bridge, to Dumbo and the promenade with stunning views. Then take a shuttle to Williamsburg in time for the guided tour. In the end we still had time for shopping at the vintage shops and a glass at the local bars. The return was made in the regular career of boats.

Very good! Authentic insight into the life of Williamsburg!

A very personal tour, you felt like part of Williamsburg! Get to know Williamsburg from the inside, feel its vibe! You actually get to experience the Williamsburg lifestyle, its culture, street art, cuisine, bars, parks, young life, the many ethnic and cultural influences and of course the incredible view of Manhattan from the banks of the East River! I highly recommend Guide Derrick Edwards to everyone. I also booked a tour of Harlem with him because I found his tour of Williamsburg to be so extraordinary, interesting and refreshing! :) No 08/15 - tourist tour, but a real New York lifestyle.
