My two daughters (20 and 18) and I have recently done Tony’s pizza and dessert tour of Brooklyn. This was the perfect day-long tour with activities ranging from views of NYC, Brooklyn bridge, street art, authentic food and the historic neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Most of the riding is in bike paths/lanes or quiet side streets. We are from Long Island and could not believe how much we did not know about Brooklyn, a place only about 25 miles from where we live. Tony catered to our family by even showing us a local farmers market where we shopped around for a bit! Tony was patient, knowledgeable and most importantly gave us his undivided attention the whole trip. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking to find out more about Brooklyn and eat delicious food from places you might not be drawn to unless taken there. One of the best parts of the tour (for my girls especially) was Tony took candid and posed pictures throughout which we will cherish for a lifetime. 10/10 recommend!

What an amazing pizza/bike tour we had, our guide Tony was a true local with many great stories, insights and go-to spots for nice treats (pizza/italian sweets/etc). A small group of us that work together thought it would be a nice way to get to know Brooklyn a little more and we really lucked out with this tour, learned a lot and had so much fun. Tony made us feel like we were catching up with an old friend and we covered a lot of ground without feeling like we were completely exhausted. I would strongly recommend a Brooklyn Bike Tour even for locals to reawaken your sense of community and neighbourhood history. Very impressed with how bike friendly Brooklyn is and how many public spaces are being maintained/developed.

What a fantastic experience! So glad we chose to do the Pizza tour with Tony. We were late arriving but he was completely relaxed about it and put us all at ease straight away. He demonstrated the bikes and made sure we were all comfortable before setting off. He took us through some lovely neighbourhoods and we even stopped and chatted to some locals (when we had a light rain shower). We toured by the old Faber Castell pencil factory, the Williamsburg Bridge and learnt how Jay-Z got his name! We even managed a stop for a gelato. All of the pizza stops were amazing, but the family favourite was the Detroit.
Tony was very knowledgeable about Brooklyn and made sure we were always safe at crossings and junctions. Even when we had to cut short our tour due to a bad Thunderstorm, Tony made sure we could get back to our hotel in the city safely.
I highly recommend doing this or any of the tours offered by Brooklyn Bike Tours. It’s something completely different and you definitely won’t need dinner afterwards! Thanks again Tony it was magic!

My partner and I were looking for something fun to do locally as we're re-emerging from pandemic life. We are so glad we stumbled across Tony's bike tour. Although we were familiar with some of the area, we still learned many new fun facts, were exposed to new delicious pizza and gelato hot spots, and saw Brooklyn from a new perspective on wheels. Tony was an excellent tour guide, providing a very customized experience. He sent us some awesome pictures that captured the beautiful scenes and moments. We would highly recommend this to anyone seeking a fun, active adventure in Brooklyn!

We did the brownstone tour on a Sunday with Tony (two adults and our 18 and 20 y.o. sons), and it was just the 4 of us. It’s hands down one of the best activities we did in NY, we all loved it! Tony has been living in Brooklyn for decades and he shares his knowledge of all the neighborhoods with a great passion that is very contagious. We were so interested that he kept suggesting more places, and we ended up spending 7 hours with him!!! This tour was really awesome.

Included in the price of the tour are all the stops to taste the wonderful food of Brooklyn at the best places: bagels, ice cream, cheese cake and of course coffee, water… We even stopped at a food festival and Tony offered us fresh coconuts (to drink the water inside of them) and sugar cane pieces to taste. For sure, you’d better come hungry at the beginning of the day…

Tony is very well organized and the bikes are in perfect condition, with little bags at the front to put our stuff. Pauses for restroom or cold water are as frequent as you want. Tony takes all the pictures for you (so you are on them!) with his camera and then sends them to you afterward. So many great memories!

Hello Venture... Thank you very ,very much for your positive review. it's very much appreciated.. Indeed we did have some day together. since you were a family of 4, we closed the booking to other guests and in effect became a private tour. ...We do that all the time when we get bookings of 4 guests or more booking together... I enjoyed your enthusiasm for Brooklyn so we included other areas outside the regular route..We suggested ,you agreed ,we went, simple.. All the food tastings added to the flavor of the areas we pedaled through. Glad you enjoyed them, including the special food festival in the park. The photos we sent you will bring great memories of your day in Brooklyn with us...Hope you will use the B.B.T. canvas tote we gave you as a parting gift on your next visit to the market. We would love to welcome you back to visit other parts of our beautiful "City" of Brooklyn. Regards : ..Tony

My husband and I had a very delightful day biking with Tony from Brooklyn Bike Tours. He took us on a wonderful adventure through many neighborhoods of Brooklyn and provided us with interesting facts of the area. There wasn't a question he couldn't answer. We also stopped for some delicious Brooklyn bites starting with bagels & cream cheese, pizza and ice cream. He also took us to Smorgasburg, where we were able to pick out food from around the world. We decided to try a Japanese dish in honor of the Olympics. We learned so much from him and can't wait to ride with him again. I highly recommend his tours and feel it was one of the best tours we've been on. Book your trip now.

"this looks like we landed in English countryside " .. haha .. I get that a lot from my guests .. The food stops we included were a real treat as well as our BBT canvas tote bag parting gift.

Thanks Tony. Our whole family had a wonderful interesting and entertaining time with you on the sunset pizza your. Tony has lived in Brooklyn forever and knows everything about how it has developed and all the different phases it has been through. Fascinating. He is great company and takes you to all the cool places you would never go to normally. From my 11 year old to a 54 year old, we all enjoyed the cycling, the food and the stories. He really cares about his community and his customers and we would recommend the trip to everyone . Thanks

Hello Paul; Thank you very much for your positive posting. We work hard to make sure our guests have a great time touring with us. I had a blast interacting with you & your family.. We soaked in a lot of interesting neighborhoods and great skyline views. I know the 4 different pizza stops we provided were very interesting as well as satisfying. The included ferry ride was just in time for that great sunset view of the Manhattan skyline from the water. Hope you liked the final treat of artisan ice cream to end the night. Enjoy the complimentary B.B.T. canvas tote bags we provided, as well as the photos of the tour we e/mailed you. Looking forward to hosting you and your family on another of our Brooklyn adventures. Best Regards ; ..Tony

We had a blast cycling around Brooklyn with Tony! He knows so much about history, buildings, funny anekdotes and pizza! We booked the sunset pizza tour. It was a private tour and Tony took so well care of us. He took us to beautiful non-touristy areas, eating non-ordinary delicious pizza and we watched NY at sunset just in time on the ferry! Would definitely recommend it!

Best bike tour in Brooklyn. Met with Tony for the Pizza Sunset Tour last week. What a wonderful experience. Tony knows everything about Brooklyn and also knows the best pizza places there. Our first stop we tasted a deep fried pizza that was delicious. We then continued our biking through Williamsburg and found another great spot for grandmom and detroit style pizza, which we loved. Both were a little different but equally delicious. We got back on the bikes and continued on our way to a nice little gelato spot. WOW was that good and hit the spot. Next stop was a slice with barrata that was creamy and delectable. We hit the streets again and saw some interesting landmarks and neighborhoods. All was very interesting as Tony described in great detail how the areas developed and changed throughout the years. We thoroughly enjoyed looking over the harbor at the lights of downtown Manhattan from the Brooklyn side. He also showed us the new parks along the river with the wonderful open space for people to enjoy. We pedaled like crazy to arrive at the last stop, and fortunately since they were friends of Tony, we were able to get our last taste after closing. It was a great time and we highly recommend taking a bike tour of Brooklyn with Tony. He's the BEST.

My girlfriend and I are hugely excited about this outing. Because another group had dropped out, we actually had a private tour. It was in a word: fantastic! Tony showed us a huge amount of Brooklyn, he answered all our questions and made us taste the best pizza. An unforgettable experience and perhaps the best of our whole trip to New York. Thank you, Tony! We are still enjoying it.

Hello Eva /Mathias : Sometimes things just work themselves out .. Since we had a last minute cancellation we were able to tour as a "private Tour" .. As as such we were able to "extend" the tour to some out of the way places you requested .. Our all inclusive pizza stops are a big hit with our guests and happy to hear you enjoyed it as well.. Nice to know that we were able to add to your experience of NYC during your visit to our beloved hometown of Brooklyn .. I had a blast spending time with you both and showing you around my Brooklyn ... Photos of the tour were e/mailed to you ..enjoy the memories .. .. Tony
