I took my visiting teenage nephew and niece on the Brooklyn Brownstone Eats tour and it was a major highlight of their trip - according to them!

What a brilliant day. Anna was a fantastic tour guide and took us round loads of spots I'd otherwise never have uncovered. Wonderful food and even better company. Thank you Anna for a brilliant time. Long live Stinky's!

What an up close and personal tour of Brooklyn. Our tour guide, Anna, was a delight and knowledgeable of the history of the neighborhood and the establishments we visited. All of the store owners treated us like royality. We learned more about their business than I think the locals even know. We had a great day. Thank you.

I felt like I not only got to eat some delicious bites, but also got to know the charming area of Cobble Hill better. I will be returning... More

Our guide Joe was brilliant, well informed, very thoughtful, he came with a Pizza to fill us up before we started drinking. I highly recommend this trip and... More

Had a great time today with Laura as our tour guide to some local brews in Brooklyn. She was incredibly knowledgable and outgoing. If you are looking for a great way to kill a day. Take a tour!

Alex was a phenomenal guide - very friendly, organized, and knowledgeable. Really loved all the places we went on the Brewed in Brooklyn tour. As a Brooklyn resident it was really great to learn about the history of the area. My boyfriend and I will definitely be scheduling another tour!
