Best of Brooklyn Half-Day Food and Culture Tour

Best of Brooklyn Sightseeing, Food and Culture Tour

Learn to eat like a local on this fantastic, filling, half-day tour of Brooklyn’s trendsetting dining scene. Make your way to Manhattan’s West Village, where you’ll meet your local foodie guide and climb aboard a comfortable coach. 
After crossing the Williamsburg Bridge, begin by exploring Brooklyn’s hippest, hottest neighborhood. From acclaimed farm-to-table restaurants to third-wave coffee-roasting cafés, Williamsburg is a launching point for many popular culinary trends. It’s also home to many traditional ethnic enclaves, including an ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jewish community and deep Italian roots, so you can get an authentic taste of Italy with Neapolitan pizza or a creamy cannoli. 
Continue on to Greenpoint, Brooklyn’s traditionally Polish neighborhood, and pop in at a Polish deli to sample kielbasa and stuffed pierogis. In the nearby DUMBO neighborhood at the base of the Manhattan Bridge, indulge your sweet tooth with cocoa-based treats at the Jacques Torres chocolate factory. Take a digestion break with a short stroll to the newly refurbished Brooklyn Bridge Park, where you’ll want your camera to capture unbeatable views of the Manhattan skyline.
Finally, cruise over to Sunset Park for a sampling of authentic Latin street food. Sink your teeth into a delicious Cuban pulled-pork sandwich while you dine picnic style (weather permitting). Your appetite sated, enjoy the urban views on the return drive to the West Village, where your tour concludes in the afternoon.

From beginning to end the tour was terrific. Great tour guide, Rick, was a delight - gave us a colorful cultural look at the lower east side through Brooklyn. The food stops were terrific. The food choices were numerous and plentiful. The weather cooperated which made it even more terrific. This was my first food tour but definitely will not be my last. Thank you
