This was a great tour to take on a sunny afternoon in Brooklyn. Our tour guide, Greg, was very informative and a great clear speaker. I and all of my party were full after the tour even with the walking. There was a lot more stops than expected and very generous samples sometimes full size items were given by all the friendly store owners! I will be sure to recommend this to anyone going to NY in the future!

This was a very adventurous tour of quaint Brooklyn. John our tour guide was very informative and his passion for the local flavors came through as he guided us to several local establishments offering us wonderful tastes of their wares. Each place has a story That John vividly shared. The selected stops were diversed. Plan to wear good Walking shoes because part of this tour takes you through the various parts of Brooklyn. Great for adults because there is a beer tasting stop. Not interesting enough for young children. Put this tour on your must dolist.

Our guide Alex was great he took the time to really give us the origin of all the places we visited. They were places the normal tourist would probably never consider going to, from bakeries, cookie shop, middle eastern grocery stores, drug stores and coffee shops. All the tastings we had were great as well, also the workers at each of these places were very nice. Alex is the guy that will give you a great tour.
