  • I didn't have the address of the meeting point so I couldn't make it, couldn't get hold on anybody in Viator, the waiting time was too long, very disappointed.

  • Our tour Guide was wonderful and very informative.

  • This was a fabulous way to begin a NYC holiday! The DUMBO neighborhood is filled with art with no pretense, and many, many friendly residents and shop owners. With its cobble-stoned streets and avenues, one could be in Amsterdam or parts of Boston/ San Francisco. The guide for this tour was an artist herself from Harlem; her comments on the galleries' works were up-to-date and informative. As well, her knowledge of the development of this neighborhood as one of Brooklyn's finest gems was genuine and interesting. I highly recommend this tour as you will come away feeling more a part of a sometimes overwhelmingly large city!

  • Saw some very interesting galleries especially enjoying the graffiti art and the walk around DUMBO.

  • The guide was very informative and knew her art. It was good to see round Brooklyn with someone who knows the area well. We looked round some galleries that you wouldn't know where there without the guide.

  • It was very good. We were a group of 3, with 2 other people. Savanah, the guide was excellent, very informative, and showed us not only interesting small galleries and artists, but a great insight into Brooklyn life, interesting destinations and very useful information about directions, the Subway and New York in general
