What You Can Expect

New York Pizza Tour to Brooklyn and Coney Island

Coney Island, New York

Experience Brooklyn's sights, sounds, and of course, New York's best pizza. Escape the tourist trail of Manhattan and uncover New Yorker’s local hideouts on this part culinary, part historical pizza tour. You will learn about the history of the scenic Brooklyn and Verrazano-Narrows Bridges, and visit Brooklyn Bridge Park for the most spectacular view of the bridge. This tour by motor coach also showcases neighborhoods, cinematic landmarks and points of interest, such as Coney Island and the Brooklyn Army Terminal where Elvis shipped off to Germany in 1958.

Your Brooklyn-bred tour guide will educate you on the history of pizza, from Italy to Brooklyn and, armed with this knowledge you will taste two very famous, yet different pizzas. Your first stop is Grimaldi's, located under the Brooklyn Bridge and a favorite of Frank Sinatra and, more recently, First Lady Michelle Obama. Due to its popularity Grimaldi’s always attracts a queue of people, but on arrival you will skip the lengthy lines and head to your pre-booked table to enjoy two slices of classic, thin crust Neapolitan-style pizza.

Your second stop will be at L&B Spumoni Gardens, a Brooklyn institution that has baked authentic Italian pizza for over 70 years. Here you will receive two thick, square slices of Sicilian-style pizza. Once you have tried both styles of New York pizza, you be the judge in the battle of the pizzas and decide on your favorite – Neapolitan or Sicilian.

Your tour also includes clips from movies filmed in Brooklyn, such as Saturday Night Fever, Goodfellas, The French Connection, Annie Hall and many more. You will also drive through unique neighborhoods such as Sunset Park, Bay Ridge, Coney Island and Brighton Beach. At Coney Island you have the chance to take in some sea air and stroll on the famous boardwalk, before heading back to Manhattan after a flavorsome and enriching half-day tour.

How r you do'in? A great tour with a fun mix of pizza, film clips and local stories. We even managed to fit in a brief paddle at Coney Island . We could have stayed longer to do the rides as there is a handy subway link which some of the group chose to do. Thanks Paula.

Paula was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about Brooklyn, because she's a Brooklyn gal! Edwin was a fantastic bus driver, even fixing the bus when it had a slight trouble. Very little inconvenience.
The margarita was my fav, and I loved being reminded of its history. The beer was great with the pizza. Loved the Coney Island stop. If I have one suggestion, it would be that I would have liked to have stayed long enough to ride the Cyclone. PERHAPS the stop could have been slightly longer, as ONE of the reasons I wanted to go there was to ride the Cyclone.
Loved the movie/TV trivia of Good Fellas, Law and Order, Saturday Night Fever, to mention a few. I am a movie and TV buff, so this was right up my alley. FUGETTABOUIT!!! I enjoyed hearing it and repeating it!

We had a great time, the pizzas were great but the tour around Brooklyn was the best, Paula was our guide and her knowledge of the area was invaluable, travelling through the various neighbourhoods with the video screen showing various film sets was great. Looking foward to next time G,K and C Scotland
