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 "dzień 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.

Mr Rick (tour guide) and Mr Jerome (bus driver) truly showed us the best of Brooklyn’s food culture! Safe and comfortable bus transportation. Loved how Mr Rick gave us the history backgrounds of the neighborhoods and food culture. So much food is provided to taste.
Thank you Oasis, Table 87, Krolewskie Jadlo, Monteleone Bakery and Jacques Torres for your hospitality and great tasting food and desserts! Highly recommend this tour and these 4 places!

Excellent tour of Brooklyn with history, tastes of different parts of the borough. The tour guide was fantastic
We had a very knowledgeable guide, nice variety of foods, just the right length tour. The driver made it easy to access all sites.
Awesome tour with Rick and Jerome (driver). The food was great and both were really knowledgeable. Very much enjoyed.
Everything about this tour was terrific. Our guide, Laurie, was kind, funny, and knowledgeable. The food was excellent--and there was so much of it. Plan to skip dinner following the tour--you'll be stuffed. A real plus was seeing how much my adult son enjoyed the tour. He moved to Brooklyn a month ago and really wants to get to know the place better. I noticed that he bookmarked in Yelp all the places Laurie mentioned so that he can visit them with friends. Foods of NY Yours and Laurie, many thanks for a super day.
Great way to learn more about Brooklyn and enjoy some great food samples along the way. Our tour guide and driver were excellent and we received a lot of historical information during the tour . A nice group of people about 20 and a great way to see Brooklyn. Great value too!
My family loved and enjoyed this tour. Thank you to Mr. Rick for introducing Brooklyn to us. Quite educational, cultural and fun. Thank you also to Jerome (Navy Veteran) for being friendly and a good driver. Rick's knack for telling a story makes every boring book exciting. He's a gifted tour guide that knows how to capture his audience by the way he expressed his thoughts and feelings. He's real passionate at what he does. Thank you Rick...when the trip was over, we felt like we have known Brooklyn for a while. Like I told you at the end of the trip, you put the
Fantastic, interesting, well run. Tasty. Went to Polish restaurant, ate pizza, falafal, meatballs, chocolate, and Italian cannolis! Very little walking, the way I like it! The tour bus was very comfortable.
I really enjoyed learning about the history of the neighborhoods we visited in Brooklyn. In addition to the 6 selected Brooklyn neighborhoods Rick also provided great information about Greenwich VIllage and The Bowery.
The establishments selected for food were all unique and tasty. The falafel was my favorite dish on the tour. Rick provided lots of information that helped prepared me for the last 2 days of my trip to NYC. The driver Jerome did an excellent job. I cannot imagine driving in the NYC traffic and Jerome made it easy. Definitely take this tour! I am considering staying in Brooklyn on my next visit and exploring some of the neighborhoods in more detail.
Great food tour! The guide was knowledgeable, friendly and guest conscious! Would go on this tour again in a minute!
Amazing. Worth the money. Excellent guide, excellent driver. Drop off in DUMBO and perfect pictures of the Brooklyn Bridge. Highly recommend walking back to downtown Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge if the weather is nice.
The food was good, the tour guide was the best we've ever had on any kind of tour. Fantastic and highly recommended.
Great guide. Good stops. Very comfortable transport. Easy tour for anyone with walking issues. I felt the history of the neighborhoods was the most interesting part of the tour
Went as a family with our teenagers and we all really enjoyed it. Turned into one of their favorite activities of the trip. Rick our tour guide was terrific.
