6-Hour Brooklyn Tour with Private Driver-Guide
This private driver-guided tour takes you beyond Manhattan to Brooklyn. Brooklyn has been called the "Soul of New York." It is a place most tourists never visit and when they do, they don't wander in very far. You are sure to experience on this tour an exciting off the beaten tourist path adventure through the very "Soul of New York." Transportation is provided in the comfort of a roomy late model Toyota Sienna minivan, with capacity to accommodate up to six guests. To quote an on and off the stage Brooklynite
(Ralph Kramden played by Jackie Gleason), "Brooklyn, how sweet it is!"
