Superb mixture of flavors, culture, history, and really fun. Excellent driver sociable, personable tour guide-Rick.
Really a great success. Would recommend it to anyone. A mix of old and new Brooklyn.
Laurie was the BEST. She was funny and knew so much about the history and architecture of NY. We had the BEST time. The food was outstanding and we just loved everything about this tour. I give it my highest rating.
This tour was fantastic. The guide Richard was knowledgeable and entertaining. We really enjoyed it and would recommend it to everyone.
Fantastic tour and Lori made it great! She has very detailed knowledge of Brooklyn and was outstanding in sharing her knowledge. The food that was offered was a more than sufficient and a very good representation of the various cultural communities. You will not need to eat anything before or after the tour....you will be full! I would recommend that you book this tour and make sure Lori is your guide!
I loved this tour, our guide Laurie was excellent and everyone was relaxed. The food was great and all the different areas of Brooklyn were so interesting and unique. I'd highly recommend this tour whether you are local ie. USA or from outside USA.
This was one of the most interesting food and culture tours I have taken and I have been on several. I highly recommend this tour. The food tastings were so good! With all the changes happening in Brooklyn this is a tour not to miss.
Lori was wonderful. This was so much fun, SO much diversity in all the foods we got to sample. I highly recommend this tour!
Rick, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and personable. He gave us a lot of the history of Brookly and we tasted varied and unusual food - look out for the delicious Cuban sandwich. Don't arrange an evening meal for the day you go on this tour, after all the food tasting there was no room for more. Derek, our driver, steered us safely through the traffic.
After the tour spend a little time in Greenwich Village and have a beer before heading back to base.
very informative guide was very knowledgeable and friendly food was excellent.
A well organised tour from start to finish. Directions to pick up the tour were very clear and concise. The tour itself was excellent, fantastic tour guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. The variety of cuisine to be tasted was amazing. Would certainly recommend you have very little to eat before the tour as there is so much food during it. We visited places we just would not have visited had we been trying to do so on our own. Also, this tour would be suitable for the older person as well as younger person. Thanks Viator for another great tour.
Would certainly recommend this tour, best way ever to see Brooklyn.
Very well organized tour. From the moment I called to confirm the booking to the end of the tour, everything was nicely presented. I booked the tour quite last minute and at first they didn't know if they have enough seat for me. But then the gentleman called back and reassured me everything would be good, he even provided information about the cafe so I can have breakfast if arrive early. Laurie, our tour guide, was very informative and full of fun stories. We were brought to many nice eateries, included a pizzeria, a Polish restaurant for full meal, a Cuban sandwich shop, a chocolate shop and especially one of the most famous delis in the city not Kart's, mind you. I got the chance to taste food across Brooklyn, that I know had I travel on my own, could have never got the chance to try. I also got to know more about Brooklyn and the city history. Highly recommended.
very good tour. A wide range of foods tried and a lot of history imparted. Highly recommended
This was a wonderful way to get to see all the neighborhoods in Brooklyn! The places we stopped at were fun and the food was great. Laurie, our tour guide, was amazing and made the day really fun. She was organized and really had a fantastic amount of information to share with the group. I'd recommend this to anyone who has never had a chance to visit Brooklyn and wants to learn about this amazing part of the city.
This was an amazing tour. Great food, great shuttle service, lots of explanations which made me appreciate Brooklyn. Our tour guide was so well versed and would answer all our questions. We truly enjoyed it
Had a number of firsts for me, with the food tasting a real cross section of the local Jewish, polish, and other immigrant populations. This was a good mix of small tour bus, short walks, and some very pleasant stop-offs to sample the food. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area. Had my first Bellini, Cuban Rugelach, parodies, and some great savoury and sweet waffles, muffins, and one of the best pizzas in NY
This was a fun, relaxing and just super day out. Loved the interesting information provided in a very enthusiastic manner. Perfect way to see Brooklyn.
A must do tour. A MUST!!! More than I expected. A very pleasant surprise. Another wonderful tour guide who made it fun and enjoyable.
What a fantastic tour, the food is to die for and our guide Lori, wow what an amazing lady, she has so much passion for NYC and her knowledge was fantastic, I think the tour was so much more because of Lori, we would recommend this tour for sure and definitely if you get Lori as a guide
Had a great time and ate a lot! You definitely don't leave hungry.
Excellent tour, guide was very friendly and informative. Very nice van with outstanding driver, through the maze of construction in the lower east side and all the double parkers in Brooklyn. Food was diverse and good quality. We had an amazing view of Manhatten skyline from sunset park in Brooklyn. Worth the price.
I think is a must. In some places I would have liked to spend more time though.
This was one of the best tours we have ever taken. Highly recommend it for anyone visiting New York. The tour guide and driver were both excellent and the food was delicious and varied. The guide kept us entertained with stories about Brooklyn and the driver expertly avoided traffic jams. Don't miss this one!
The trip was wonderful! The food was delicious. The tour director was friendly, helpful and full of information. The shuttle driver was excellent. We've been to New York before and never ventured out beyond the theatre district. It was fantastic to learn about the other diverse sections. So glad we took this tour. I was worried about the meeting place but it forced us to take the subway, our first time, and that actually added to the whole experience.
The Brooklyn trip was great. The guide was very informative and made the day very enjoyable. Will for sure schedule a new trip next year.
