Sasha was a great host; entertaining us with good stories and guiding us to some exceptional food locations that we never would have picked out ourselves. A great thing to do when so many other activities are shut down due to the pandemic.

I booked this tour as part of my husbands birthday weekend celebration and it definitely didn’t disappoint. Our guide Sasha was so knowledgeable, kind and funny. We learned so much about Brooklyn and ate great food from business we probably would not have discovered on our own.
