  " besides providing first-class comfortable bikes, Tony is a well-organized,cheerful,thoughtful,safety-conscious tour leader. He knows a lot about Brooklyn history too. With that expertise leading the way,we had a unique and exceptional bike tour of Brooklyn on a sunny Sunday in June. Despite many trips to Manhattan over the years, we ( a couple in our seventies) had never investigated it's neighbor across the East River. For extra convinience ,Tony began the tour from our  hotel in Manhattan. We cycled across the Brooklyn Bridge and then a visit through DUMBO and Brooklyn Bridge Park. We took advantage of the free ferry to Governor's Island for a quick spin around the island.  As we proceeded along the waterfront we stoppped to see the shops and art galleries of revitilized Red Hook. On the way back we  meandered through several of Brooklyn's unique neighborhoods before hopping the free ferry back to South Street Seaport in Manhattan. — I'd say the highlight of the trip was simply our surprise at seeing so many historical sights in Brooklyn. Also the people-friendly "mini-Central Park" on the waterfront that has supplanted what recently were decaying piers and warehouses.

  " It was the second visit to New York City for us and we wanted to explore Brooklyn and go beyond Times square. We found Brooklyn Bike Tours on line and immediately liked the concept of cycling around with a local while also getting to know interesting places, to eat and experience the daily life in the different neighborhoods. 

Even if we expected a lot, Tony managed to exceed our expectations ! The food was delicious, the places we got to see were amazing !  A sundowner at the new  parks by the East River is an overwhelming experience and we can highly recommend it to both first-time NYC visitors as well as New York pros. Tony impressed us with profound knoledge about the history of the different neighborhoods and their recent and future development.  Last but not least: we felt very comfortable with Tony. Unfortunately time flew by way too fast. That day we decided to hit the road again with Brooklyn Bike Tours and Tony, when we will be back in NYC some time soon. "

What a wonderful day we spent on a guided bike tour with Tony Mantione and his lovely daughter,Gabby ! We found Tony's name on the internet and we really weren't sure what we had gotten ourselves into…….. We traveled down from upstate NY and Tony met us, as scheduled at 9 AM with more than enough bicycles and helmets for all six  of us. As bike riders, we weren't sure that we could enjoy riding bicycles that were not our own, but the bicycles that Tony provided exceeded our expectactions!  The day was filled  with information, surprises, beautiful sites, history, photo ops ( with Tony taking numerous pictures that he then sent to us ) Brooklyn cuisine and lots of laughter. Tony shared many interesting stories about which many Brooklyn natives are not aware.  We have been telling all our friends that this is a " must do " experience. Highly recommended !!!

The Sunset & Skyline Pizza tour was excellent !  Tony was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and eager to show us many interesting neighborhoods in Brooklyn. He also sent us some great pictures he took on our tour ! We highly recommend Tony – he consistently exceeded our expectations !

Dear Tony, Thank you for the wonderful experience we had with your bike tour of Brooklyn. It was very personalised, informative and fun ! The pizzas were all delicious and I was completely full by the end of the tour. Your directions to get there made it stress free and I felt very safe riding around the streets of Brooklyn with you and your daughter. My whole family have said it was a highlight  for New York and we are very greatful to you for showing us the city you love ! The pictures are awesome. A very happy customer : )

I was in NY on a fleeting visit, and I knew I had to make up an effective itinerary to get as full a flavour of the city as I could in only 2 days … and the Sunset and Skyline Pizza tour accomplished exactly that. Tony offered, by far, one of the most enjoyable activities in my month -long USA trip. Not only did I get a proper taste of Brooklyn, but the views of Manhhattan that we savored as we followed the sunset were second to none. We certainly wouldn't have witnessed these had we not ventured to Brooklyn, and I'm so pleased we decided to do so in this way ! The pizzas we sampled deserve a whole review on their own, and who would've though "Mozzi" ( as the locals fondly call it )  pizza could have so many delicious interpretations ! I would thoroughly recommend this tour with a guide as enthusiastic and informative as Tony, and my only regret is that I wasn't around for the weekend to catch his dessert tour… Definitely one to catch on my next visit

 Tony , ho passato una serata veramente unica. E difficile mettere su una mail gli odori, sapori e gli stupendi panorami vissuti quella sera. Vivere la citta' in bicicletta e' qualcosa di veramente unico perche' riesci a vedere un sacco di cose che altrimenti (in auto o a piedi) non riusciresti a vedere.  Poi la tua bravura nel raccontare le vicende storiche dei luoghi, delle quartieri toccati nel tour e dei palazzi "famosi" , lo trasforma in qualcosa di maggico.   I vari assaggi di buonissimo cibo in posti molto particolare poi rendono tutto ancora piu' piacevole.  Ma il tuo amore per Brooklyn, la tua simpatia, la tua professinalita' e il tuo Italiano perfetto sono stati impeccabili.  Aggiungo che fai delle foto bellissime che hanno reso questa serataeterna.  Quindi grazie mille Tony, sono certo che ci vediamo la  prossima volta che verro' a New York per una nuova magica avventura in bicicletta.  Pedalare per Brooklyn e' stato fantostico.

 " Una giornata che non mi scordero' mai piu' " — Ciao a tutti, se avete voglia di passare una giornata indimenticabile alla scoperta di Brooklyn, allora il biketour di Tony e' cioe' che fa per voi. Ho passato una bellissima giornata in compagnia di Tony che e molto disponibile e gentile e mi  a portato alla scoperta di posti fantastici di Brooklyn, sconosciuti anche ai suoi abitanti.  Dal ponte di Brooklyn al giardino Botanico passando per le pier e per Redhook . Brooklyn ha un fascino che meriterebbe molto di piu' della visita di una sola giornata.  Se il tempo non ve lo permette ed avete voglia di apprezzare il meglio di questa citta' in solo 5 ore allora la gita in Bicicletta con Tony e da non perdere… .. Provare per credere !!!

Fantisco tour, non si puo' visitare New York meglio di cosi', il giro in bici ti consente spontamenti e soste quando vuio tu, coglioendo dettagli e punti di vista che non potresti avere in nessun altro modo: Per noi e stata una esperienza unica, e sono certo che questo dipenda proprio della scelta di girare diversi giorni con le bici a la  bellissima guida di Tony, sempre super disponibile, gentile e dotato di una coscienza unica della zona in cui vive da tanti anni. Veramente imperdibile, credetemi.

I nostri tre giorni con Tony sono stati stupendi !  Non e per elogiare una persona qualunque, Tony e davvero una guida competente, una persona  umile e intelligente, piena di energia e vitalita' e soprattutto piena di umanita',un bene prezioso che si trova solo poche volte.. Insieme a lui abbiamo visitato Central Park, la High Line – il parco sopraelevato di New York – e una parte di pista ciclabile che collega Battery Park alla 178 strada lungo l'hudson River. Il secondo giorno ci ha guidati per Brooklyn con suoi panorami mozzofiato, con Red Hook, DUMBO, il giardino botanico , i quartieri ebraici e portoricani raccondandoci storie come un bravo narratore. Il tutto ad un prezzo esiguo nel quale sono comprese le biciclette in ottimo stato, i caschi, una bottiglia aqua e tanto amore per la sua citta'.— Grazie Tony, non ti ringrazieremo mai abbastanza .. >>
