My daughters, husband and I joined Brian on the Brooklyn Brownstone tour this past weekend. Brian was a fantastic guide - so knowledgeable, personable and friendly. He spent a lot of time with the group and really gave us a good feel for the neighborhoods and history. The food was fantastic too and it was a nice touch to actually... More

I cannot think of enough great things to say about this tour -- it was so much fun and informative and the food was really delicious, just top notch and I want to go back and do it all again just to be able to listen to our guide, Bryan, talk more about the history of Cobble Hill and Carroll...

Since I'd never taken a food tour before, I was a little apprehensive...Then I met Anna, the tour guide. She is delightful, enthusiastic and full of fascinating information. I had a ball visiting the atmospheric, artisanal stores and hearing the history of the area. There was plenty of delicious sampling of a wide variety of foods and of course, I... More

We recently moved to Brooklyn and received this as a gift to help us explore our new neighbourhood and all I can say is WOW. Right from the beginning, we knew it would be amazing when we met, and heard the background of, our amazing tour guide Anna. She was friendly, outgoing and knowledgeable, both about food and Brooklyn. As... More

I grew up in NYC but still managed to learn a ton from the Brooklyn Eats Urban Oyster tour while sampling delicious food!!! Anna, our tour guide was charming, fun, and informative. Her passion for food was obvious and her knowledge of the area was extensive. The staff at the local stops were equally knowledgeable and warm. Overall, it was... More

Urban Oyster delivered on a fun day of eating, drinking and learning what makes Cobble Hill and Caroll Gardens so special. Our tour guide Brian was informative and easy going making it a point to show us the importance of supporting all the great small, family run businesses in the area. Can't wait to do another one these tours soon.

My girlfriend and I were visiting from Scotland and wanted to see out of Manhattan. This tour was a great way to see about Brooklyn and go to places you wouldn't think to visit. Our tour guide- Beer Master Josh was great, very knowledgeable and friendly. We were rarely left without a beer in hand and got to meet and... More

My boyfriend purchased the Brooklyn brew tour for me as a Christmas gift, and as avid craft beer drinkers, we were excited to spend a day tasting some different beers! The tour and guide Alex did not disappoint. Got to meet and chat with new people, taste several unique beers, & visit awesome hole-in-the wall spots. Although there was a... More
