Highlights
  • Seamless, round-trip transportation between Manhattan and Brooklyn
  • Taste Brooklyn’s iconic dishes, from pizza to pierogi, on a half-day tour
  • Travel between Brooklyn neighborhoods on a climate-controlled bus
  • Learn about Brooklyn food and culture from a licensed NYC sightseeing guide
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.

We had such a great time with Rick on our food and culture tour. Learned and ate a ton. Very happy with the food and drinks. Best part was the way Rick told stories and explained the culture. Carlos did a great job driving our bus. So much fun!!
