The “Ultimate Insider’s” tour is the perfect description. Kriss is an excellent guide and a natural historian. Such a treat to walk the Bridge with a Roebling family member, see his artifacts, and listen to his stories!

Outstanding concept for a tour. The great...great grandson of the Roebling father and son (and his wife) brings the history to life with personal family stories. Amazing original journals, instruments and pieces of the original bridge are like cream cheese icing on a fine carrot cake. You get to touch and feel history. But the key to this tour is Kriss himself. A gifted storyteller, he genuinely enjoys sharing this history with others. Probably the
best walking tour ever!

I can’t curb my enthusiasm. This was truly special. Kriss is a living piece of human history who walked & talked us across The Brooklyn Bridge. He offered such unexpected insights that only his family could know of.

The story of The Bridge is already very interesting; It’s the first expansion bridge and it changed the future possibilities of metropolis landscapes forever. And Kriss brings unheard of detail and knowledge, things I’d never heard anywhere before, almost completing the mysteries around this historic achievement.

I felt lucky to have stumbled upon this rare tour. You must catch Kriss, a living heir of The Brooklyn Bridge for so long as he is generously sharing such family secrets with us.

I took a solo tour with Kriss and had a wonderful time!!!
So much information revealed about the bridge and the history surrounding its conception construction and its importance to the history of New York city and its citizens then and now.
Kriss reveals the history of the bridge through a family perspective as a true ancestor of the Roebling family and as a thoughtful custodian to his family and the bridge.
If you wish to experience something wonderful and personal I highly recommend this tour on the Brooklyn Bridge!

Wow, what an experience!! Kriss's tour is wildly entertaining. He isn’t just a true insider when it comes to the Brooklyn Bridge, he’s a great story teller as well. His knowledge of the Roeblings and the bridge they built is unparalleled. I learned things that I couldn't have learned anywhere else. A whole new spin on this wonder of the world. Kriss was welcoming and very funny. I had an amazing time, and would recommend this tour to anyone.
