What better way to explore the ethnic diversity of New York City than this exclusive History and Gastronomy lesson in this varied international culinary tour of Brooklyn. Take a trip back in time and around the world and see a part of New York City you probably didn't even know existed!
It's been said that "A trip to Brooklyn is like a trip around the world." How sweet and true it is. It's truly amazing how many people visit New York City and never get to see Brooklyn.
Unlike other tours, your journey with an experienced, knowledgeable native New Yorker will show you the most fascinating areas in New York City. Begin in the historic West Village, the past and present home to some of the City's most influential residents, and then venture across the Williamsburg Bridge to Brooklyn, where the main portion of your tour will take place.

"Great way to get a taste of Brooklyn" - S. Cook, International Tourist
"Excellent tour and tour guide! Had a ball with Isaac learning about Brooklyn, its culture, history and food!" - K. Wright, Domestic Traveler w/Group of Friends
"Great insight in some Brooklyn neighbourhoods. The tour proved to be a very good sampler and we will definitely come back to the neighbourhoods we visited for more (in particular Williamsburg and Dumbo). Combining the trip with food is a great way of bringing it all to life and providing some insights into 'normal life' in the areas visited. We certainly recommend this tour." - Joachim, International Tourist
"Fantastic experience. We had a superb guide and would highly recommend the tour."- Mary L, UK
