Scott always took care about my security

Scott was a very good Tour Guide. He showed me a lot of beautiful places and views. The bicycle he gave me was excellent and he always took care about my security.

Totally worth it!

My girlfriend and I went biking on a rainy day but it was fun and Scott prepared a lot for us. He waited for us and gave us time to enjoy the places. And overall this 42km bike ride introduced me to the basic layout of New York and I left falling in love with its stories and architecture. Totally worth it! I’ll strongly recommend this tour even to my own friends. Well done Scott!

Great tour

Great tour of the high line, like a walk with a knowledgable friend. Flask of hot chocolate was much appreciated on a cold NY day.

Scott had a wealth of knowledge for us

Scott was a great host, during this wonderful experience over the BB, throughout Brooklyn Heights & DUMBO! A lot of awesome bike riding thru scenic spots, as well as a wealth of knowledge Scott had for us regarding the history of architecture, politics and real estate in the area! Thank you Scott, for being a great host with some terrific Hot Cocoa!

Perfect one-day tour for visitors—and New Yorkers

I signed up for this mostly for some out-of-town friends who wanted to see NYC’s “greatest hits” by bicycle (which I’m not qualified to give). And I’d recommend it for anyone—I’ve lived here for 20+ years, but Scott’s knowledge of the city’s history was mesmerizing and made me see the city anew. You get to see so many major sights, and Scott’s commentary made it all the richer. I’ve been on tours where the guide was sort of robotic, but Scott had a gift for giving just the right amount of information before moving on. This is going to be my go-to for any future visitors who want to see the city by bike.
