We had a great time on the Brownstone Brooklyn Tour. Brian, our guide, was amazing! He really knew the area and had passion for food and the downtown Brooklyn culture. All of the stops had excellent food and we really enjoyed listening to some of the owners talk about the history of their establishments. We live locally but this gave... More

This was such a cool experience. Our tour guide Josh was excellent. He was very informative and kept the tour light and refreshing. Even though it down poured all day we poured down some great brews. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Brian, our tour guide shared interesting stories about different cultures that settled in NYC.

Although the weather was freezing he warmed our minds and stomach with delicious experiences. We would definitely recommend taking this three hour tour. Check out his interesting... More

Brian, our tour guide, was very knowledgable and super nice. He rolled through the punches when another guest was giving him a hard time. I feel like I know so much more about Brooklyn in my short time with Brian and Urban Oyster. Bring extra cash, comfortable walking shoes, and a sense of adventure.

We did the Neighborhood Eats: Brooklyn Brownstone tour with Joe. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough - it will be a highlight of your trip to New York. It was a fantastic three hours. We were taken to very high quality places and they all had a real 'neighborhood' feel about them. Many of them were small places that... More

The Brooklyn Food tour was an interesting and very tasty tour! You get to taste completely different kinds of food and with the personal stories behind every shop, this was one of my favorite things i did there. I will definately join another tour once i am back. Go hungry, because you wantto eat it all!
