This was also the day of winter storm Jonas, the second worst winter storm in the city's history. .. the weather did cause us to cut the tour a bit short, but Josh, our amazing guide, charged bravely through the snow, giving...

Joe is in the restaurant industry, and was knowledgeable and passionate about the food and history of the area where the tour focused. We were visiting NYC, but also wanted to explore Brooklyn and we thought this might be a... More

Tastes of Brooklyn was our tour and it was AWESOME. If you are lucky enough to have Brian, you have already secured the best experience that this or any other tour has to offer. His knowledge and enthusiasm for the local community of Brooklyn is an experience in itself. Every place he took us to and all the tastings we... More

Although I didn't book this event, I joined a group of guys for the beer tasting tour in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The event moved along at a nice pace, given our larger group (9 guys). Our tour guide, Alex, did a great job talking us through the different types of beers we were drinking and discussing some of the food pairings... More

This tour takes you through the various waves of immigration in the lower east side of Manhattan through food. Brian was very knowledgable, engaging and a great foodie. My daughters and I had a fabulous time learning about the area, even though we are New Yorkers. Would recommend to anyone.

Had an excellent time on this tour with my sisters while home for the holidays. Our guide, Brian, was fantastic. He shared the history of craft brewing in Brooklyn around Williamsburg and had a great knowledge of the craft. He have great recommendations for tastings. The four locations we went to were excellent.

My mom, sister, and I went on tenement food tour in the Lower East Side and it was great. Our tour guide was Brian, and he was friendly, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable.
