Fun Time in Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO!

My group met up with our tour guide, Justin, for our 3 hour private tour in Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn Bridge, and DUMBO. The entire group had a wonderful time. Justin was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Justin earned an A+ from my group. In addition to walking around the tour packet included food. We ate pizza from Juliana's, which we all thought was delicious, stopped and had a taco in DUMBO, then during the tour we got to satisfy our sweet tooth with an delectable whoopie pie from One Girl Cookie shop, piece of chocolate candy from Jaques Torres Chocolate, and ice cream from Oddfellows. There was enough food for all of us. We all were stuffed at the end of the tour. We would definitely recommend this tour.
