Our guide Walter was kind, knowledgeable and genuine. He grew up in the area and has lots of stories to share. 10/10 would recommend. Prepare to be full after, so don't plan an early dinner!

Walter was an excellent tour guide. Lots of great information and history of Williamsburg, an area of NYC We had not been. The food choices were varied and excellent. We were all full at the end of the tour and glad we had walked around to burn off a few calories.

Justin was an excellent guide and my family really enjoyed the walk and food in Williamsburg. We will definitely be back to the places we visited and a few other spots that Justin pointed out. Lots of food, more than a regular lunch!

This is the second time I've done a food tour. The first time was in my own backyard and a learned a lot about the neighborhood. This time it was somewhere new for me and I was also great. They picked a great variety of things for us to try. Had interesting stories to tell about the history of the neighborhood. Very knowledgeable and friendly guide.

I guess you get what you pay for. Even if I walked around and got an appetizer at 5-6 different places in the area, I would have gotten a better deal than this tour. TBH I expected just a little bit more than what we got. Started with half of an everything bagel, a tasting at a BBQ spot (which was great and more along the lines of what I wanted to experience), a pizza spot and the next 3 places were tastings from sweet shops...WTH? Who eats that much sweets for lunch? No one in my group wanted sweets. And yet here we are, visiting 3 sweet shops. The Milk Bar was the best by far, but cookies from Martha's and some chocolate shop that gave us a few chocolate chips (yes, tiny chips that one would use to melt when baking). Those are cheap cop outs, I would have preferred one more restaurant. The best part of the tour were the other people we met on it.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us this review. I am saddened to read that you did not enjoy the tour. I reached out to you in the hopes that we could resolve this but I didn't hear back. We are a small business so customer satisfaction is very very important to us. Because of that, we are very clear to list all of the foods you will taste on the tour and we do include 3 savory tastings (BBQ sampler with cornbread, two half slices of pizza and pierogis -- and now we also include corn esquites) and 3 sweet. The restaurants are all hand picked, local favorites. The food cost makes up the majority of the tour price so I apologize that you didn't feel it was enough food for lunch.

We’re from the NY metro area and had my mother in law in town for the holidays. We introduced her to Brooklyn with this phenomenal tour! Our tour guide Walter was very knowledgeable of the area. There was a vast array of food (even veg options). You will not leave hungry! Would definitely recommend. Walter was great!!

We’ve visited NYC many times but never made it to Brooklyn until this trip. We booked a food tour. WALTER, our guide, was great. Very informative, very friendly. The tastings he arranged were all excellent—especially the thin crust pizza. We would definitely recommend both Walter and this tour.

Usually neighbourhood food tours are about celebrating the food from that region - whether locally made or the culture of the population there. This food tour took us to two chains - an ice cream chain, and a plastic wrapped cookie from the Milk Store chain. Only quasi-local was a pizza spot (not very good) and a perogie spot in a food mini-mall. A Texas BBQ spot started it off. I expect food tours to find local producers / farm to table / bakers etc... This was basically walk around Brooklyn and stop in food places with no real sense of location or logic. Tour guide also lacked real knowledge - basically just cited a few meaningless facts and check the box style trivia. Knowledge of street art (also viewed on the tour) was iffy... claimed 'tagging' was a legit style of street art and spent more time on commercial art that neighbourhood or visiting artists of quality or renown. Certainly can't recommend.

Lastly, tour tickets say 'don't be late' / 'call if delayed'... as will leave without... but tour guide still waited 10-15 mins past the tour start time trying to track down a no show. Don't cite it if you don't mean it.

Thank you for taking the time to leave this review. I am sorry that you didn't enjoy the tour. Mable's Smokehouse is indeed BBQ but it's run by New Yorkers and is truly a local favorite. Momofuku Milk Bar does have several locations in NY and a few other places but was created started in Brooklyn and is very famous in the neighborhood. All of our tour guides are licensed and local. They share considerable history and knowledge in various areas to make sure the tour is interesting and engaging for everyone. I apologize that the tour started a little late while waiting to find missing guests - we do try to accommodate everyone and hope you understand that sometimes things happen.
