Join us for a Brooklyn Foodie Adventure! Recommended by Fodor's Travel and enough food for lunch!
Williamsburg, one of Brooklyn's most popular and exciting neighborhoods, straddles old and new. You can enjoy the lively arts, music, and boutique scene here, chill in numerous cafes, dine in some very good restaurants — and soak up the unique vibe.
During this small group, walking tour experience, you will discover the cultural delights and delectable bites of Brooklyn, by the hand of local food experts. Delve into the rich culinary history of the area as you visit iconic institutions to sample tasty treats.
FOOD INCLUDED IN THE PRICE:
Step into Williamsburg’s past at this traditional Polish bakery (pierogis and pastries)
Critics pick BBQ sampler at this neighborhood favorite (excellent veggie option)
Enjoy two types of pizza from a NY Times recommended pizzeria and true hidden gem. The owner is host of Vice Munchies and is Brooklyn born and raised
Savor bagel bombs and cereal milk ice cream at Momofuku Milk Bar (owned by celebrity chef, Christina Tosi of Master Chef)
Sample chocolates direct from this artisanal Brooklyn chocolate factory (flavors like sea salt, coffee, lavender and more!)
Eat unique ice cream created by an Iron Chef contestant. Sample as many flavors as you want before picking one to enjoy!
Also see large scale street art, learn fascinating history (see author Henry Miller’s home and learn how the neighborhood shaped his writing), and capture the best view of the New York City skyline.
Our guides are working actors so every tour has history through fun storytelling and lots of personality! Let us show you the Williamsburg that locals know!

“Walking tour in Brooklyn” 5 out of 5 stars. This was a fun way to spend an afternoon when visiting NYC. The restaurant and food options were diverse and fun. Walking the streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn gave us a feel for the area. The guide was very knowledgeable and appears to really like his job. We stopped at 6 different restaurants, tasting pizza, bagels, ice cream, chicken, a frozen ice milk treat, and chocolate. I would recommend this activity for all who like to walk and experience new things.
“Great tour – even for a local!” 5 out of 5 stars. I took the “Williamsburg Bites” tour along with my boyfriend who used to live in neighborhood. He’s a foodie and hard to impress, but he had a great time tasting some of the things he normally wouldn’t try off the menu and learning about the area’s history. I myself loved the whole thing—everything was delicious and our guide was very friendly with a great perspective. Definitely come hungry!
