- Explore one of New York’s lesser-known boroughs with a native guide
- A tour that combines history lesson with gastronomy
Lying just over the Manhattan Bridge, and practically the size of a city by itself, Brooklyn is one of New York’s most exciting five boroughs but given that most holidays to the Big Apple focus entirely on Manhattan, not many realise how amazing it is. Well, this half-day tour led by a native New Yorker aims to show you, taking you around key landmarks by bus, with regular stops to get off and explore. Plus: people say that a visit to Brooklyn is like a walk around the world, but it’s also a culinary odyssey - this tour combines the history with a series of delicious food tastings too!
In New Williamsburg, famed for its ethnic diversity, especially its population of ultra-orthodox Hasidic Jews, and thriving arts community, sample a slice of authentic Neapolitan pizza straight out of the brick oven, with a little freshly prepared cannoli for desert. In Greenpoint, where many Poles live, stop at a popular neighbourhood eatery for some delectable kielbasa sausage and pierogies. And in the hip Dumbo area, try a few artisan treats at the Jacques Torres chocolate factory. All while learning about Brooklyn and its history from your knowledgeable guide.
