About the tour

The first bridge to connect Manhattan and Brooklyn has been seen from just about every angle in film, television and commercials...and even on some of our tours! On this trip, we'll actually be taking viewers up on the bridge. Hold tight to your hats and parasols - we wouldn't want you to lose them in the East River! Come along with us and see the most breathtaking skyline views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. This Virtualtrips tour is not to be missed!

Meet your local guide

Aaron K. and Patrick

Aaron and Patrick both grew up on farms, but having lived in New York City for over 25 years, they consider themselves New Yorkers. Their tours are energetic and fast-paced - much like the city they love. While venturing through New York City's iconic highlights, viewers will also discover some hidden gems and learn where to find a sweet treat or the best slice of New York-style pizza. Better yet, you get to stroll through Times Square (and on New Year's eve, catch over a million partiers!) or see a stunning fireworks display from Belvedere Castle. "We have so many funny memories but here are two of our favorites. During one of our Christmas tours, we slipped on the ice in front of hundreds of Virtualtrips viewers - luckily, we were fine! On a different tour, we happened upon a person dressed as a tap-dancing fox in Washington square park. A rare sighting indeed!" Patrick laughs. Virtual trips voyagers have the opportunity to see New York from Aaron and Patrick's perspective. Their positive energy is infectious and each tour feels like a love letter to the city. Come take a bite out of The Big Apple with the NYC tour!

Aaron K. and Patrick has been guiding since Sep 2020

Since touring with Aaron and Patrick I haven't been able to look at anything the same....Never before have I been so fascinated with architectural structures and designs. Now they have me wanting to put my 4 inch heels on and glide across the Brooklyn Bridge because they made it look so appealing. These two show so much joy and energy in every single tour, I now find that even the simplest things in life is being appreciate so much more. Many, many picture-perfect post cards...Awesome tour again!

I enjoyed Aaron K. and Patrick's tour of New York. I have done 3 Virtual Trips with them. I always enjoy their tours. They are informative, pleasant, knowledgeable. They also make a point to answer questions and comment on messages in the chat. I have two more tours scheduled with them and will be scheduling more. I am excited to see what other tours they will be adding. Definitely a great experience with Aaron and Patrick.
