Wonderful little tour which gives you a peep in to some lovely Brooklyn neighbourhoods. You hear some interesting stories of the owners of some of the better cottage businesses in the area. Our group particularly loved D'Amico Coffe Shop and Mrs. D'Amico who was such a charmer and Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain with all the amazing characters sitting outside... More

He took us to 3 different bars, including the Blind Barber and Sweetwater Social. The cocktails were great and so were the stories of the neighborhood! At the end of the night Brian recommended a couple... More

Highly, highly recommend this for beer lovers... More

We bonded really well with both our group and Josh, all together having a really fun afternoon. The breweries all had great atmosphere and we were provided with lots of tasty beer!!! The history was very... More

Our hostess suggested this tour and it was the best thing we did in NYC! Suggestions: 1) Make sure you tell them if you're vegetarian, vegan, lactose or glucose free as they will easily make accommodations for you! 2)Take a small bag so that you can purchase items (if you want to--we did!), as you will make NINE stops and...

Tastes of Brooklyn. Tour guide was Joe, who was just great. This was one of the best things we did in NY, really enjoyed it. 3 hours of walking around Brooklyn visiting food businesses, talking to the local owners and tasting their delicious food. My favourite was Stinky, a local deli selling all of their own produce. Although Joanie at... More

Well if you're looking to take a deeper dive into New York and really get a sense of the New York, New Yorkers experience, then the Brooklyn Neighborhood Food Tour is a great way... More
