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.

This was a really fab tour of Brooklyn and Coney Island. The views of Manhattan from under Brooklyn Bridge were awesome, as was the view of the Brooklyn and Manhaton Bridges.
Now to the serious business of the pizzas or as our guide Paula referred them as pies. We went to two restaurants, with different styles of pie. Both were absolutely scrummy and thoroughly enjoyed by all on the tour.
Our tour guide Paula who is Brooklyn born and bread was very knowledgeable of the area and had a great sense of humour.
This was a really good way to see a part of New York you would not normally see.
Only down side was I felt we could have spent a little bit more time at Coney Island, but that did not deter from a very enjoyable tour.

Excellent tour for anyone who wants to see a bit more of NYC than just Manhattan. We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the tour and would recommend highly. Our guide Marc was both funny and informative and really brought the area we were seeing to life. Pizzas were great and there was enough time to ride The Cyclone out at Coney. Perfect!!!

This pizza tour was great..! the tour was made better by our guide, Paula. We had forgotten our camera and Paula was kind enough to take some pictures of us with NY in the background and email them to us. Thank you Paula She was historically knowledgeable and shared secret information with us concerning some of the Neighborhoods...I am sure the Mob will forgive her very soon. You should enjoy this Brooklyn Tour during your NY visit..! Thanks Paula... Richard and Lisa B 09/13/15

It was a fun tour. The tour guide was great but she should use a microphone. We were in the last seat and it was hard to hear all the details

This was a fun tour with good guides. I really enjoyed the 'Saturday Night Fever' theme. Great well rounded day, something for everyone - I wouldn't change any of it.

Great tour of Brooklyn and Coney Island. Our tour guide, Paula, was informative and entertaining! We did not realize Brooklyn had so many different neighborhoods! Coney Island was not quite what we were expecting but we can now check it off our list of places to visit while in NYC. This is a must do tour while visiting NYC...enjoyed it so much I bought a t-shirt! Thanks again to Paula for sharing her hometown with us and the delicious pizza!

Tour guide Paula was exceptional.
Pick up at Union Square was easy and we were soon heading to Brooklyn.
You will never taste pizza as good as this. Coney Island is worth a visit but was busy.
For a different view of NYC, visit Brooklyn

This was my first visit to New York and this tour was fantastic. Our tour guide Paula was very informative and passionate about her home of Brooklyn. Beautiful views of Manhattan Island and the Brooklyn Bridge. Pizza was the best I've had and great to meet people from all over the world. Coney Island was amazing. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting New York.
