The Best Of Brooklyn Multicultural Ethnic Neighborhood Food Tasting and Culture Tour

Travel guidebook Lonely Planet named Brooklyn as one of the top destinations in its "Blue List," annual worldwide best-of guide. 

What better way to explore the ethnic diversity of New York City than this exclusive History and Gastronomy lesson in this varied international culinary tour of Brooklyn. Take a trip back in time and around the world and see a part of New York City you probably didn't even know existed! It's truly amazing how many people visit New York City and have never seem Brooklyn. 

Start your 4.5 hr. tour with a brief drive through, and learn the history of, Greenwich Village. Get great views of the famous Washington Square Park where, in 1961, a 19 year old Bob Dylan strummed his guitar for the first time in NYC.

  • Old Williamsburg, a drive through the Ultra Orthodox Hasidic Jewish area where time seems to stand still.
  • New Williamsburg, home to many ethnic groups and a thriving art community Taste your way through North Williamsburg at two favorite neighborhood eateries, featuring the best Hipster and Middle Eastern Street food.
  • Greenpoint, featuring one of largest Polish populations in the United States, and enjoy a sit down meal at a favorite neighborhood eatery, featuring the best kielbasa sausage, pierogies and more.
  • We'll take a scenic drive past beautiful Prospect Park and trendy Park Slope, arriving at our favorite Brooklyn Pizza place. Watch your Pizzaiolo prepare and bake delicious brick oven Neapolitan Pizza. Finish off the Italian tasting portion of the tour with a Cannoli in the Carroll Gardens neighborhood.
  • DUMBO, where you'll stop and get to sample scrumptious chocolate at the Jacques Torres chocolate factory, and visit Brooklyn Bridge Park for an excellent view of Manhattan's famous skyline.
  • Though we will drive to get from one neighborhood to the next, you'll have plenty of time to walk around and take pictures in each area where we stop. As an option, consider walking back to Manhattan across the famous Brooklyn Bridge!

Unlike other tours, your journey with an experienced, knowledgeable native New Yorker will show you the most fascinating areas in New York City. Begin in the historic West Village, the past and present home to some of the City's most influential residents, and then venture across the Williamsburg Bridge to Brooklyn, where the main portion of your tour will take place.

Advance purchase strongly recommended. Tours usually sell out in advance!
