My wife and I totally enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Mary Hannah of Urban Adventures, was excellent.She was very knowledgeable of the area and gave much insight to the tour. She was very personable.I have already recommended this tour to a niece who will be visiting NYC soon
Mary hannah , was casual had good knowledge of area and history.. tasting were good..Top notch bakery and smoke salmon with cream cheese and bagel killer!
Our tour guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable about the various neighborhoods in Brooklyn we visited, as well as the 7 venues we visited to try the local flavors. Our favorite stop was the Farmacy, for an authentic egg cream. We highly recommend this tour.
We covered a lot of ground on the tour and the guide kept us entertained with history in between venues. The tour was well organised and food was waiting for us when we arrived at each stop.
Wonderful tour! Food was great and John our tour guide was knowledgable, personable and very helpful. would highly recommend!
A great tour with a very knowledgeable guide, Brian. I enjoyed very much visiting local places and the quality food. Highly recommended.
This was a great tour to take on a sunny afternoon in Brooklyn. Our tour guide, Greg, was very informative and a great clear speaker. I and all of my party were full after the tour even with the walking. There was a lot more stops than expected and very generous samples sometimes full size items were given by all the friendly store owners! I will be sure to recommend this to anyone going to NY in the future!
This was a very adventurous tour of quaint Brooklyn. John our tour guide was very informative and his passion for the local flavors came through as he guided us to several local establishments offering us wonderful tastes of their wares. Each place has a story That John vividly shared. The selected stops were diversed. Plan to wear good Walking shoes because part of this tour takes you through the various parts of Brooklyn. Great for adults because there is a beer tasting stop. Not interesting enough for young children. Put this tour on your must dolist.
Great tour. Our guide Josh was excellent and very knowledgable and enthusiastic. A proper expert in his field.
We have never done a food tour so maybe this is standard, but we thought we would actually be sitting down in restaurants trying different foods and drinks that reflected the area. Instead we would stand awkwardly in delis and cafes where there was very little space trying to get out of the way of paying customers. The "food" samples included bread, cheese and peanuts which we found odd. The tour also dragged on for 3 hours. There was a lot of standing around and waiting; this tour could have easily been done in half the time. We are big foodies and were really looking forward to this tour, but it ended up being the biggest disappointment of our trip.
