No spoilers here, but there were some unexpected moments on this tour. And guide Mandy was engaging, knowledgeable and fun to be around. I learned more about when and how the Bridge was built – and the characters involved, including an elephant or two! Don't miss it.

I also did Untapped's brand new Gilded Age tour – a fascinating stroll down history lane while walking up 5th Avenue. Our unforgettable guide Justin provided an afternoon jam-packed with facts, intriguing stories and inside information. Catch this if you can.

Full disclosure: I'm already an Untapped fan as an 'Insider' but up to now have mostly only been able to 'attend' virtual events. Those are usually pretty cracking too.

I love the Untapped Cities newsletter--full of fascinating history and, indeed, secrets about New York. Since I grew up in New York but no longer live their, it's particularly fun for me.

Consequently, when planning activities for me, my wife, and a couple of friends visiting from Australia, an Untapped Cities tour appealed. Though most fascinated by the idea of the subway tour, I chose the Brooklyn Bridge because it would be outdoors.

The experience was great--it would be great doing it unguided, but our guide was informative, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and personable, and added a great deal of value.

I had hoped for a little more "secret" content, but I have read David McCollough's terrific book "The Great Bridge," so perhaps that's unfair.

I'd definitely recommend this tour.

Mandy, our guide, was informative and enthusiastic as she described to us the vast undertaking of building the bridge. The bridge was packed with pedestrians and some bikers which sort of gave us the feel of old New York, a walking city. Our group was all female, We were delighted with the recognition of the pivot role of Emily Roebling in leading the bridge project.I would recommend this tour as a veteran tour guide. If I ever do the BB tour myself, I hope I can convey the facts and wacky details in such an entertaining way.

We spent a very interesting afternoon with Mandy walking the Brooklyn Bridge and being entertained by a guide who's passion in infectious. If you have any interest in the history of NYC, I highly suggest you consider this tour. And the tour encompassed NYC history beyond just the bridge. Mandy is a terrific tour guide ~ bring your comfy walking shoes and enjoy!

The great adventure of the Roebling famiily's pursuit of building a magnificent bridge from Manhattan to Brooklyn comes to life on this excellent walking tour. Lead by an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, Mandy Edgecomb, this tour featured a bottom to top look at the building of the bridge in the late 1800', and some if it's unique features and human interest stories. If you are a fan of the bridge and early NYC history - this is a must do tour!
