Riding in a sidecar was an item on my bucket list that I imagined might end up being a little anti climatic, but I booked this tour for myself for my birthday and had such a great time! The ride was fun, I saw parts of Brooklyn (I live in Brooklyn) I had never seen before, and Anthony had great personal stories and historical facts to go along with each neighborhood we passed through. He wasn't watching the clock and you could tell he genuinely enjoyed showing me around. I unfortunately had other plans or we would have kept going longer. Thanks for a fun birthday adventure and check off the bucket list! Definitely recommend for visitors and locals too.

Anthony was very accommodating to me and allowed me to change my reservation due to weather. I really enjoyed cruising around Brooklyn and listening to Anthony tell me stories and the history of Brooklyn. In the end I felt like I was hanging out with a friend. Everywhere we rode people were smiling and waving at us which I thought was really cool. If you want something different, special and unique I would definitely recommend the Side Car tour of Brooklyn with Anthony you won’t regret it.

I had a great time and got to see some, off the beaten path, spots that I felt like I wouldn't have been able to visit. The tour was relaxed and the ride was great. I loved being able to greet random strangers on the street. I would definitely recommend this tour, it's a unique way to spend a couple of hours getting aquatinted with the city!

You must do this tour! There was so much to love: Anthony's personal stories and boundless commitment to ensuring we were having a great time, the unique experience of riding in a sidecar, the ability to see so much of Brooklyn in a fairly short time - it was all terrific. He did not have anyone booked after us, so we lucked into about an extra hour and we are grateful for the generosity of his time. He is also a very good driver and we felt very safe the entire ride. I wholeheartedly recommend this tour, you will remember it for the rest of your life!

My father is 75 and Anthony did a great job of talking to my dad about history and made sure he was happy. We had a great time and took lots of iconic pictures. Would recommend to others.

What an amazing experience. I would do it again and again. A rare insight into real life Brooklyn history and modern day life. The Red Hook wine tasting at Pier 14 was an unimaginable gem. Thank you Anthony.

It was a special evening. I was looking to explore Brooklyn in a relaxed atmosphere, to have a good mix of seeing world famous locations and spots and at the same time to get to know the vibe and the local lifestyle better. I really loved that Anthony shared some personal stories that made you appreciate how Brooklyn has changed over years. The sunset views were amazing and made you stop for a second and appreciate how lucky it is to be alive and experience such beauty in life. He had thought of some iconic locations where to make memorable pictures and was feeling my mood very well and knew the right balance between just exploring and sharing info.

I booked Anthony”s experience as the first of many activities and tours on a “bucket list” trip with my 79 year old father. Anthony met us right on time with helmets and intercoms. Once we were set it was an amazing 2+ hour tour of Brooklyn and the surrounding area. We got off frequently to explore certain places on foot and take in the views. Anthony shared a lot about the local history and lots of stories about his experiences growing up in the area. Anthony was patient and helpful with my dad getting in and out of the side car. The motorcycle was a unique Russian made machine and Anthony was expert at driving and navigating despite being a little overloaded ;-). Of all the other things we did in NY, DC and white water rafting in Pennsylvania my dad always came back to this as the most amazing thing he did on our 2 week trip. would highly recommend this experience and would do it again myself.

What a fun afternoon! Although I’ve been to New York before, I’ve never been to Brooklyn and heartily recommend Anthony’s tour. He has wonderful, personal stories and seeing the neighborhood in his sidecar was awesome... a really unique experience.

A must do experience for Brooklyn.. Anthony is a charming charismatic multifaceted fellow with so many stories and personal experiences that the time flew by so fast! He customized my fabulous ride over and over. He is so intuitive and such a people person. This experience goes way above and beyond the actual description. Just go and discover more than you ever would expect!!
See you the next time I'm in NYC, Anthony!

This is a wonderful and unique way to discover Brooklyn! Anthony knows a lot of facts and stories about the life in Brooklyn over the ages, about the founding figures, the architecture of the different neighbourhoods... He is also very aware of the cultural and artistic activities going on in Brooklyn. Anthony is a very open minded person and a safe driver! Thank you so much Anthony I definitely recommend the New York Sidecar Tours.
