We were curious about traditional Jewish culture and Frieda captured our fascination right from the start. Walking amongst the community and seeing the dress, etiquette and daily lifestyle first hand while listening to Frieda explain it...was a culture shock and enthralling.

Hi - Thank you for inquiring about the tour of Hasidic Williamsburg! No, the stroller would not pose a problem. We've had babies (and love babies) on several occasions and we navigate a very stroller-busy community. We go into two shops that are a step up and otherwise are outdoors.
I hope this helps!
