Overview

The new culinary center of the Big Apple, where food and dining trends are dispersed to the rest of the country, is Brooklyn. And with this half-day tour, you can take a big bite out of it. From old ethnic enclaves to the latest hipster 'hoods, Brooklyn's dining scene is both diverse and cutting edge. Munch pierogies in Polish-dominated Greenpoint and hip farm-to-table fare in Williamsburg. This guided eating tour of New York's coolest and tastiest borough is ideal for foodies and the people who love them.

Know More about this tour

Welcome to Brooklyn, the coolest, most dynamic borough in the Big Apple. Not just the center of all things hip and artisanal, Brooklyn also happens to be one of the best places to eat in the country right now, where dining standards like locavore-ism and farm-to-fork trends hit here early on.

This guided half-day culture-and-food-centric tour winds throughout Brooklyn, revealing the hip 'hoods and the off-the-beaten-path eats that you'd be hard-pressed to find on your own.

Your journey begins in the historic West Village, the past and present home to some of the city's most influential residents. Then, along with your knowledgable food-crazed New Yorker guide, hop into the air-conditioned shuttle and venture across the Williamsburg bridge.

Journey around the ultra-Orthodox Hasidic Jewish section of Williamsburg, where families stroll the bustling streets that look like they haven't changed in a generation or two, before hitting the hipster section of the neighborhood. Williamsburg is one of the best restaurant neighborhoods in the city where third-wave coffee roasters sit next to cutting-edge farm-to-fork restaurants. Indulge in a slice of Neapolitan pizza or a cannoli before moving next door to Greenpoint.

Wander around Greenpoint, a neighborhood where you may hear "dzie dobry" as much as "hello." That's because the area has long been home to the city's Polish residents. Stop into a traditional Polish eatery for scrumptious meat-stuffed pierogies and juicy kielbasas.

The tour suddenly gets sweet in Dumbo, an atmospheric part of town that stands for Down Under the Manhattan bridge Overpass. Sample some delectable sweets at the Jacques torres chocolate factory and then walk it all off at the recently re-constructed Brooklyn Bridge Park (make sure you bring your camera for the incredible views of the Manhattan skyline).

Then return to Manhattan, pleased with your newfound knowledge of New York's coolest borough.

    Everything was great in our tour! Thank you Laurie,you did great job!The bus was very comfortable and all the food was different and delicious !

    This tour was a delight and an excellent way to see Brooklyn. We went on a Saturday which turned out to be even more intriguing as we got to see how different groups and cultures live in Brooklyn (hipsters, Jewish and Polish communities, etc.). Our guide, Rick, was wonderful. He had a great mannerism about him and his voice was great for story telling. He shared with the group historic insights and funny encounters he had experienced as well. Out of the 6 stops for tastings was Table 87. It was the best pizza we had in New York by far. The pizza is made in a coal oven!! Rick also plays photographer and takes great pride in making sure you get a good shot of the Brooklyn Bridge. Super amazing excursion- strongly recommend!

    It was a good tour that takes you through multiple neighborhoods of Brooklyn. The food was great. The bus kept the walking to a minimum.

  • 18-Sep-2019

    The Brooklyn half day food tour was phenomenal. The tour guide, Laurie, was knowledgeable, entertaining and very excited to share her food knowledge. The food was delicious and I would highly recommend this tour.

  • 13-Sep-2019

    This tour was absolutely incredible! Our guide Laurie was amazing and provided great details and history on the area as we drove around. She was also very helpful in recommending things to do while visiting New York.
    The food was incredible at all the places and the diversity of the cuisines was intriguing.
    At the end of the tour, we were given the option to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge rather than being driven back to the meeting point, which we chose to do- I highly recommend it as it is a great way to see the city.
    I cannot recommend this tour and our guide Laurie more highly!
