We went on the tour with Allison and this tour was fantastic!!! She was extremely knowledgable and educated about Food and History. We have been on many food/walking tours and this really was the best because of the tour guide and because they took us to so many great places and the food was wonderful. The portions were very large so come hungry. This differed from prior tours we have taken because this tour company believes in paying for all the tastings so they are not giving you tiny tastings that the restaurants give you for free. You really get a lot. I would highly recommend this tour - you learn so much about the history of the area.

Definitely recommend this tour to people who wish to gain an appreciation of the Brooklyn culture, its people, food and architecture. Our guide Anna, was a trained chef and understood the nuances of the food culture of Brooklyn. It was great value for money, as we literally ate the whole tour cheese, meat, bread, cakes, coffee, tea and a visit to a soda fountain.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

I really enjoyed this tour. I got to see a really cool part of Brooklyn, Carrol Gardens, that as a tourist I probably would never otherwise get to. The food and drinks were tasty, but even better was the stories that went with the places we visited. We heard some really interesting and personal stories from the owners and really got a good appreciation of their passion for their food and/or shops and the local community. Joe the tour guide was very knowledgeable of the places we went to and also passionate about the community and supporting local businesses. Thanks Joe. There was a good and friendly mix of people on the tour. Being a walking tour meant that we were always on the go and seeing, tasting or learning something - not stuck in traffic between destinations. Highly recommended and will try other tours when next in NYC.

Terrific! Our guide Natalie was super. Loved her genuine enthusiasm for the people and the place. A thoroughly memorable and lasting experience! We we caught in a torrential downpour, but we ducked into a unsuspecting restaurant and were generously received. That's Brooklyn for you!
