We spent two weeks in New York and this was one of the highlights of our trip.
The bus was comfortable and the driver and guide were very professional. Laurie was very knowledgable and had a great sense of humour and managed to talk to everyone.
The length of the trip and the mix of food was just right and the option to walk the Brooklyn Bridge at the end was a great idea.
Laurie and Derrik were an awesome duo of navigation, education and delicious eats. We cannot imagine anything more perfect for our experience. It was well organized, we were easily able to get in and out of the businesses and the food is ready on the spot.
Rick was great! Very informative and fun! Lots and lots to eat! highly recommend
This was an excellent tour! None of us had been to Brooklyn and Rick was an excellent guide. We were lucky to have a small group with a small van and received personal attention. Each stop was interesting and the food was interesting and of good quality. We look forward to other tours offered through this group. Thanks!
Great guide, Rick, who led us through Brooklyn neighborhoods, teaching us about the history and culture as well as taking us in to restaurants to sample foods. Discrete bus all black, tinted windows that totally removed any embarrassment of looking like a gawker. Highly recommended!
Wish could give this 10 stars. We had such a great time with Lori our guide and our driver who was amazing and always able to find a parking place!!!
Lori was FABULOUS! She had so much knowledge and insight into the Brooklyn scene and shared all including some great food...pizza of course pergolis, meatballs even vegetarian was offered and chocolate..of course!
I cannot recommend this tour enough...one of the best I we have ever taken in NYC! Thanks Lori!!!
Great tour! I highly recommend this tour! It was a great balance between history, culture, and foods. Also, very accommodating to food allergies which I did not expect but greatly appreciated! Rick was very knowledgeable and entertainng!
Rick was a very knowledgable and personable guide. The stops we made were interesting, with good food and efficient. The time flew by. Very good your and value for the money
Amazing tour of Brooklyn! Our guide Laurie was knowledgeable, funny, and kept everyone engaged throughout the tour. Falafel, meatballs, Polish pirogi , sausage and apple pancake, pizza, canoli, and chocollate: diverse foods, diverse neighborhoods, and an exceptional tour that is definitely recommended!!
This was a terrific tour, really set our trip off well. You just got right into the Bones of NY,places you would not necessarily go yourself but glad we did,it gives you a real feel for how NY is made up of all different Cultures/migrants over years and years which make NY so special.
The guide was great too not sure of his name,big guy with a beardsorry
James our driver and Laurie our guide were personable, informative and funny. This was a terrific tour with loads of information, sights and good food. Oh, the food! From meatballs, falafel, polish sausage and perogies, pizza, cannoli to chocolate, it was all scrumptious. We definitely reccomend this great tour.
Great tour! The guide Rick was outstanding, and the food choices were good. We loved seeing the growth and change in Brooklyn.
This tour gave us an opportunity to eat our way through Brooklyn and see the sights at the same time.
Definitely a must do! Brooklyn is so cool and the food was amazing!
This tour met my expectations and more. Rick was a most entertaining, knowledgeable and informative guide and we enjoyed a great selection of Brooklyn food offerings while learning of the history and culture of the borough?
This tour was very enjoyable. Our guide Rick was excellent and before the tour ended all who attended became good friends
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!
I thought this was a great tour..we covered so many different neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Lori our tour guide was so knowledgeable about the history and cultures I found it fascinating. The food stops were great too....very indicative of the particular neighborhood/culture...I had a great time...highly recommend this tour.
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.
A fantastic tour with a very knowledgeable friendly guide. Great food and lots of info.,

This was one of the most amazing tours ever!! Our guide - forgot his name, big guy with a white beard - was simply amazing. The details we got and the places and cultures we visited gave us a good overview of Brooklyn and what lies within. I highly recommend this tour! Liz
We had a great time. Laurie was very knowledgeable about Brooklyn. The food was great and varied. The bus was comfortable. We will definitely do other tours through this company.
2 people separately recommended this tour to us. We can only pass on their recommendation! Interesting places, a friendly informative guide and so much yummy food. Don't each much breakfast.
