The Brownstone Brooklyn Tour was fantastic. Great tour guide, passionate business owners and great food and drink. Highly recommended.

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

Wasn't interesting at all. Would not recommend this tour. A tour for an introduction to beer but not for seasoned beer drinkers.

We are very sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the tour. We try to tailor our craft beer crawls both to who is on the tour that day and also so that everyone can learn a little something and of course, drink great beer. We are certainly upset to find out that you didn't take anything away from your... More

As we are food lovers and we didn't know Brooklyn yet, we decided to do a food tour with urban oyster. It was a really great tour, we learned a lot about the district, locals spook about their business and we learned about history as well. Really great tour! Don't eat too much before, you will get a lot of... More

Brian was a fantastic tour guide. He was not only knowledgeable and friendly, but he also created an environment for the fellow tourists and I to make new friends and have fun together as a tight little group. The beers we tried were great and the history of the neighborhood and its breweries through the years was fascinating. Great idea... More

Beer I've drank since the tour I've enjoued more with my newfound appreciation. And they were extremely accompdating letting us book the morning of and even later reimbursed us so we could pay with a third party gift certificate after the fact! Truly class A experience and customer service.

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. We visited different eating places to appreciate the variety of excellent food brought to NYC by the various groups. 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
