Amazing tour! Brian was the best! Great way to explore Brooklyn. The guide had great relationships with all of the employees along the way and it felt like we got a true look behind the curtain at local mom and pop shops that make Brooklyn so special.
Fun and informative
Adam_S, Sept 2023
Jessie was a great guide full of good information and she took us to great places that we never would have found on our own
A must do with Angelo!

Angelo was a terrific guide and had a lot of great stories! Went above and beyond to serve the individual food needs in our group!
Amazing experience on Brooklyn Food Tour!
Bryn_G, Sept 2023
Angelo was our tour guide, and he was amazing! So knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and personable. I have a nut allergy, and he ensured that I felt comfortable everywhere we went and had alternatives available for me as well. We explored the Cobble Hill neighborhood in Brooklyn and it stole my heart. Not to mention all the DELICIOUS food we tried! Croissants, pulled pork, cookies, pizza, spanakopita…we left VERY full for sure! Highly recommend, great way to explore a new area and learn about history.
Hot 🥵 time in Carroll Gardens

Fun and tasty tour
Sharon_O, June 2023
Had a great tour with Angelo. He was very knowledgeable and provided some interesting facts about Brooklyn - nice way to see the area while tasting some yummy foods. Would highly recommend this tour when visiting Brooklyn.
Helen_J, June 2023
We got lost finding the location so we were about 15 minutes late. We missed the start and weren’t provided with the guides number to call. I had provided my contact number but no-one rang us to check we were coming, which was disappointing. We tried to see if we could meet-up with the group by following the trail described in the promotion of the tour but this didn’t work. It was a shame as the rest of our time in Brooklyn was great.
Response from Host, June 2023
Hi Helen, thank you for your review- we are sorry to know you were running late and unable to meet with the group. I will check in with our team to see if there is anything we can do for you. Our team will be in touch in the next 48 hours to advise. We are happy to know that you managed to enjoy Brooklyn outside of this misconnect. Speak soon.
Nice Stroll Around Brooklyn
Beverly_M, June 2023
We enjoyed our stroll around Brooklyn since this was our first time there. The food was a bit heavy on bread items and very little protein - only Salmon on our bagel. This is the first tour of many that we’ve taken that no beverage was offered other than water. It was still pleasant and informative.
A great taste of Brooklyn
Brenna_M, May 2023
Our tour with Angelo was wonderful! You know you are going to have a great food tour when the business owners & workers know your guide. We tried many different types of cuisine (french, middle eastern, italian, etc) starting with breakfast and moving along to lunch and desserts. My husband and I appreciated the personal stories and histories that Angelo has collected from the people who live in the neighborhoods we toured to share with his tour groups. While it was a 3 hour tour it wasn't too many miles (maybe 6-7,000 steps) as there were plenty of stops - there were also several bathroom options and places to grab a drink.
Great combination of amazing food, history, and recognition of cultural legacy.
Carrie_G, May 2023
This was a fantastic tour. I really appreciated Angelo's storytelling and weaving together the history of the area, it's development over time, the cultural influences, and why each food spot is selected for the tour. There is a clear respect for what makes Brooklyn unique and significant - not just a run through of what is trendy. I learned a lot, ate great food, and look forward to coming back again.
