Returns to original departure point
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 and a creamy cannoli. 

Continue on to Greenpoint, Brooklyn’s traditionally Polish neighborhood, and pop in at a Polish restaurant to sample kielbasa and pierogis.

View the beautiful Prospect Park and have a big slice of Neapolitan Pizza in Park Slope for an authentic taste of Italy. Then explore the deep Italian roots of Carroll Gardens with a creamy cannoli. In the DUMBO neighborhood at the base of the Manhattan Bridge, 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. Then indulge your sweet tooth with the famous Bonbons of the Jacques Torres chocolate factory. Your appetite sated, enjoy the urban views on the return drive to Greenwich Village, where your tour concludes.

We really enjoyed this tour! Our guide was so knowledgeable and the foods were delicious!! They were even able to accommodate special dietary restrictions. I don't eat meat and there was something for me to sample at every stop. A+++++ definitely book this tour!
Better Than We Could’ve Imagined

Our tour guide Laurie was absolutely amazing! 5 stars hands down. If she wasn’t giving the tour, it may not have been as good. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Brooklyn, the culture, the people responsible for it, down to how the water flows through the city. Her stories were an added bonus. So glad I was able to take this tour with my teenaged son.
Outstanding tour! Would do again!!
, Jul 2021
Laurie was by far one of the best food and history tour leads I have had the pleasure of touring with. Her knowledge was amazing. The food choices were outstanding!
Spend the day learning about Brooklyn and walk the bridge!
, Jul 2021
Lori was an excellent host, very easy to understand and follow. So much information to take in! Really enjoyed the food especially the perogies and kielbasa! Super people on our trip and just a fun and interesting way to spend a day in Brooklyn!
Great food, great time!
, Jul 2021
This was a fantastic tour. Laurie was a great tour guide with a wealth of great facts about the area and the food. All the stops were wonderful and the restaurants were very accommodating. The bus was super comfortable and the driver navigated us through some very tight places with ease. Overall I highly recommend this tour.

The tour was great she was very knowledgeable about Brooklyn and the food was very good. We are from New York and will enjoyed the tour
Informative and engorging tour!

Are you interested in a bespoke history tour of Brooklyn, catered with its finest cuisine? Do you want to know why the Brooklyn Dodgers left for LA (hint, it has to do with an overly-powerful and ambitious city planner.) If so, then book this tour! Laurie & Isaac were our gracious hosts spanning 5 hours and 6 distinct ethnic cuisines on a brisk, rainy October day. The tour was well paced, (perhaps, to allow for digestion) and highlighted the cultural and historical contributions of Brooklyn from the American Revolution through today. We would absolutely book this tour and agency again, hopefully with Laurie & Isaac!
