Led by Joe Minchik, this walking tour is a great experience providing a good balance between history and food as you walk back through
time in an area that played a key role in the Revolutionary War and today is a showcase for neighborhood gentrification that is igniting a renewed interest and respect for home grown artisans. One sees first-hand how old is becoming new again! You soon learn that lessons experienced in Brooklyn are recycle and rehabilitate the buildings you have and attract locals that invest in apartments and businesses to make Brooklyn great again. Food samples provided at the nine establishments visited are ample and highlight best practices and premier ingredients in food preparation.
This was a great tour, we lucked out as there were only two of us on the tour, but having said that Josh our guide was as we say in English the bees knees. He's a great guide giving just enough info to not sound like a teacher and always talking at you, but any question you had he knew his stuff, on top of that he was just a great friendly guy, if you get Josh you are sure to have a great tour. The tour itself in mega interesting stopping at 9 interesting gourmet places in cool Brooklyn !!!
Highly recommend it as a great break from the hustle and bustle of Manhatten
To start with, Josh ,our tour guide was very knowledgeable about food and the local area. It was delightful that the food was accompanied by tidbits of history that allowed us to see how it was and how it has changed today.
This was a fantastic tour. A great way to learn about Brooklyn. Our tour guide Allison was the best.
Joe was a great guide, who had lots of information and made sure that everyone was having fun. We visited 8 places and really enjoyed the samples and hearing their stories.

This was one heck of a walking tour. Allison our guide was absolutely fabulous. Her knowledge of Brooklyn and the local food establishments was amazing. Would certainly recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about and tasting the local foods but about the place as well. Great afternoon spent roaming the streets with plenty to munch on and drink along the way.
