*** May 2, 2021 final update: I’m sad to announce that I will not resume touring this year. Thanks for all the love and support over the years. Its been a fun ride. ***
Update: Take a look at the new FAQ about the tour
Contrary to popular visitor belief, there’s a lot more to Brooklyn than just DUMBO (the area you visit after walking the Brooklyn Bridge). Brooklyn on its own, would have been the 4th largest city in the US. Well, in 1898 most residents wanted to remain independent, but their wish wasnt granted. Today, its as thriving as ever.
Let me show you the real Brooklyn. The Brooklyn I know and love since moving there in 1986. We will travel the borough like no other tour company does to my knowledge, in a comfortable SUV. We will explore very diverse, ethnic, and in some cases picturesque neighborhoods like Red Hook, Sunset Park (Our biggest Chinatown), Coney Island, Russian Brighton Beach, Brooklyn Heights. This is the real Brooklyn. We’ll walk and explore about 5 neighborhoods, and eat some wonderful stuff along the way. Other tours just drive around from one pizza place to another fooling tourists into believing they cant get better in Manhattan.
