We did a tour starting from the Manhattan side and ending at Dumbo. Well worth every cent. Amazing views and our guide was informative and interesting. Learn about the building of the bridge and so much more.

I would recommend the guided tour which lasted for 2 and half hours. An excellent guide who kept a group of around 30 people fully engaged and without losing anyone. The walk over the Bridge itself was busy and there are many photo opportunities both...More

Yes. You are free to walk across the bridge as you please. It's about 1.3 miles one way. Just be wary of the bike lane, as it can get crowded on foot. Do not walk in the bike lane, that's a huge no-no. Though during the day... More
