Come explore the Bronx on this 7-hour guided bike tour! The neighborhood, the northernmost of the five boroughs, has acquired over the years a bad reputation but has developed into a flourishing community with an increasing number of hip bars and galleries.
The tour starts with a ride into South Bronx and continues on towards the Bronx River, flowing right through the forests of the Bronx Zoo. Then you'll stop for a lunch break at Little Italy. Wander through an indoor market and take in the amazing smell of homemade pasta, gourmet sandwiches, and delicious pastries (food cost not included).
Your expert guide will tell you all about the neighborhood's history and the famous people that once wandered its streets. Take a look at Poe Cottage, where the famous writer Edgar Allan Poe moved to get away from the chaos of the city in 1846. Enjoy a poetry reading outside what was once the home of Langston Hughes and visit the magnificent campus of Bronx Community College, home of the first-ever “Hall of Fame” and set of the Hollywood movie A Beautiful Mind!
