On this half-day Brooklyn food and culture tour, you get to see and taste your way through all of Brooklyn’s character-filled neighborhoods, without having to worry about navigating the subway or finding the right restaurants. Get a taste of pizza, pierogi, cannoli, chocolate, and more of what makes Brooklyn's food noteworthy. A climate-controlled bus takes your small group to numerous stops—and generous tastes.

What to Expect

Meet your guide in Manhattan West Village, and come hungry as this half-day tour begins before lunch. Board a climate-controlled bus with your small group and head across the Williamsburg Bridge.

Your first stop is Williamsburg, home to trendsetters as well as Hasidic Jewish and Italian communities. Indulge in a classic slice of Neapolitan-style pizza while your guide shares stories about the area’s history.

Then, head to nearby Greenpoint, a hub for New York’s Polish community, where you try traditional kielbasa and pierogi.

Head deeper into the borough and see more Brooklyn sights—including Prospect Park and the brownstones of Park Slope—as you go.

From there, it’s onwards to Carroll Gardens for more Italian and to DUMBO for a treat at Jacques Torres Chocolate.

Finally, admire impressive waterfront views of the Manhattan skyline. Capture the moment in photos before the bus brings you back to the West Village, where the tour ends.

It takes you to City Hall (a block or so from the end of the Bridge) and City Hall Park. From there we took a Lyft car back to our hotel, but there were bus & subway options also available.
