Best of Brooklyn Half-Day Food and Culture Tour

Best of Brooklyn Sightseeing, Food and Culture Tour

Learn to eat like a local on this fantastic, filling, half-day tour of Brooklyn’s trendsetting dining scene. Make your way to Manhattan’s West Village, where you’ll meet your local foodie guide and climb aboard a comfortable coach. 
After crossing the Williamsburg Bridge, begin by exploring Brooklyn’s hippest, hottest neighborhood. From acclaimed farm-to-table restaurants to third-wave coffee-roasting cafés, Williamsburg is a launching point for many popular culinary trends. It’s also home to many traditional ethnic enclaves, including an ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jewish community and deep Italian roots, so you can get an authentic taste of Italy with Neapolitan pizza or a creamy cannoli. 
Continue on to Greenpoint, Brooklyn’s traditionally Polish neighborhood, and pop in at a Polish deli to sample kielbasa and stuffed pierogis. In the nearby DUMBO neighborhood at the base of the Manhattan Bridge, indulge your sweet tooth with cocoa-based treats at the Jacques Torres chocolate factory. Take a digestion break with a short stroll to the newly refurbished Brooklyn Bridge Park, where you’ll want your camera to capture unbeatable views of the Manhattan skyline.
Finally, cruise over to Sunset Park for a sampling of authentic Latin street food. Sink your teeth into a delicious Cuban pulled-pork sandwich while you dine picnic style (weather permitting). Your appetite sated, enjoy the urban views on the return drive to the West Village, where your tour concludes in the afternoon.

The tour was wonderful. Rick our guide did a great job at explaining the culture of Brooklyn and I felt such a fondness for the area when we were done. The food was good also, more than I expected. I would definitely recommend it to friends.

This tour is a must for those who want to see parts of Manhattan and more. It's a narrative and food tour of lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. Laurie is knowledgeable and a licensed tour guide in both boroughs. She brought together a tour of strangers and was friendly, fun and delightful. We started the tour with a history of parts of East Greenwich Village, NYU and Bleeker Street famous for its nightlife and clubs. Then over to Brooklyn and our first food stop, The Meatball Shop. Delicious!! Next across the street to try Falafel. More history and touring around until we reached a Polish restaurant where we had a great small three course lunch tasting. The next food stop was Table 87 for one of the best Pizzas I have tasted. You may recognize the name from Shark Tank where the owners scored a deal with Barbara!. As if weren't full already the final two stops were for desserts - cannoli at beautiful neighborhood and a gourmet chocolate shop and factory in the DUMBO area of Brooklyn. After all the fun and food it was a perfect day. Thanks again to Laurie and also our driver, Derrick for an awesome day!

The information from the tour guide gave a real understanding of the places we went to, I know now why there are staggered balconies. Oh and the food was something special. Polish food was a highlight.
A great way to spend 4 hours and the guide was very accomodating.
