Take an unforgettable hop-on hop-off tour of Brooklyn and experience the graceful borough that's just minutes away from downtown Manhattan like never before.
Once you board one of the double-decker buses, a licensed guide will point out all the sites as you glide across the Manhattan Bridge and see Brooklyn and the many wonders it offers.
You'll see historic Atlantic Avenue, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, the Brooklyn Museum (the second largest art collection in the city), the Antique Furniture District, Grand Army Plaza (with its picture-perfect Soldiers' and Sailors' Arch), glorious Prospect Park (designed by world-famous Olmstead and Vaux after they completed Central Park), the Prospect Park Zoo, the Brooklyn Public Library and so much more.
Best of all, you can hop-off whenever you like to grab a bite, shop or step inside a museum, store or site.
