Explore the Real Brooklyn
Experience the real Brooklyn with me! Many people want to visit Brooklyn but just don't know where to start. I am here to change that: I will show you five completely different faces of Brooklyn, in five different neighborhoods. You will get an overview of New York City's most populous borough, and I will introduce you to Brooklyn's history, culture and people. Covering five different neighborhoods, this is the most comprehensive Brooklyn tour available. You'll get to see how diverse Brooklyn truly is when I show you classic Brooklyn brownstone architecture as well as the 'hipster' side of Brooklyn, street art and vintage shops, hidden bars, amazing Manhattan views, an Orthodox Jewish community and grand historic homes. To be able to show you as much of this giant borough as possible, we are using the subway three times on the tour, but this will give you time to sit down and take a break in between exploring the various neighborhoods on foot. See "Where we'll be" for the neighborhoods we're visiting on the tour. Other things to note -Bring a valid MTA subway ticket (ideally a weekly card with unlimited rides) and wear comfortable shoes. The tour includes three subway rides but most people also arrive by subway.
Fall in love with Brooklyn nightlife
We're back and better than ever! Blondie's Crawl Brooklyn: Our Brooklyn pub crawls are a combination of a party and a bar tour. After checking in at our start time, you'll grab a drink and meet the group for the evening. We then move as a group from venue to venue on a route that has been carefully crafted in advance to showcase the best of the area. Every unique spot we visit offers the crawl exclusive drink specials and/or free entry. You'll meet new people, explore a new nightlife scene, enjoy some great drinks and party hard, all with a great host leading the way. Our experience is perfect for solo travelers, couples, small groups and large groups. Mingling is half the fun! *The guest count listed here is not always accurate and is often higher than listed. Please send a message if we're sold out for the date you are looking for and we may be able to accommodate you.* Other things to note All guests must be 21 or older to participate. Please bring valid state/international identification. Dress nicely, but this is Brooklyn - casual cool is the name of the game. We love private groups! Please send us a message BEFORE booking for a private event so we can make sure your unique event is unforgettable. Large group? Please message us for group booking/discounts.
Contrasts Of Brooklyn
I will show you the contrasts of one of Brooklyn’s most popular neighborhoods: Williamsburg. What used to be a blue-collar industrial neighborhood has transformed into a lively, artsy area packed with restaurants, trendy shops and bars. There are two vastly different sides to Williamsburg: the cool, hipster part that has made the neighborhood a “must go” place for anyone visiting New York City, and the Orthodox Jewish community, which is a stark contrast to the young and fashionable part of Williamsburg. During this 2-hr tour, I will introduce you to both sides of this diverse neighborhood. I will show you some of the best spots to shop, eat and drink in Williamsburg (with a focus on small, locally owned businesses), some of the most striking murals and street art, and show you one of the best Manhattan skyline views. You will get to know the best independent boutiques in Williamsburg, vintage shops, the best places to grab a coffee, and you’ll know where to grab a slice of a classic New York pizza. After an introduction to Brooklyn and learning about Williamsburg’s history, we’ll move on to the lesser-known side of this neighborhood: the Hasidic Jewish community. You will learn about one the largest Orthodox Jewish communities in the world, gain a better understanding of this deeply religious group, and get an insight on the unique traditions and customs of Hasidic Jews.
Turkish Coffee + Fortune
Turkish coffee fortune reading is an authentic tradition dating back to the Ottoman empire of the 1600s. After drinking this sweet, espresso-like coffee, (cooked on hot sand) it is customary to read one's fortune from the remaining coffee grinds. In this wonderfully interactive & communal experience, your coffee grinds will be projected onto a giant monitor allowing for all of the symbols to be witnessed right before your eyes as Dr. Honeybrew interprets them! The Turkish Coffee Therapy is cosmic, insightful & entertaining - earning credentials in publications such as CNN, Forbes, & Travel + Leisure. Dr. Honeybrew’s signature JuJu Turkish Delights (vegan + gluten-free) will also be offered together with your coffee! Summer 20022 flavors are below. *Lemon + Thyme* *Rose + Black Pepper* *Matcha + Cocoa* (PS: Each session communal to groups of 6-8 participants. Private sessions available for an up-charge. Decaf options also available but kindly notify me in advance!). Görüşmek üzere! **GREAT FOR TEAMS & CORPORATIONS** -Dr. Honeybrew @drhoneybrew _____________ COVID-19 RULES (May 2022) -All Guests Vaccinated. -6FT Social Distanced Seating For Each Group. -Masks Are Encouraged With The Exception Of When Turkish Coffee & Turkish Delights Are Served.
New York Mafia Tour with Food Tastings- the Insider’s Story
Get the insider's perspective on the infamous Mafia crime families of New York City on this walking tour with two sit-down tastings included, through the vibrant and fascinating gangland area of New York’s East Village and Little Italy. The stories of the violent and elusive underworld of the Mafia have captivated each of us – with a whole genre of movies and novels dedicated to New York’s gangsters. On this tour, you immerse yourself in that world and become familiar with the characters, their history, the places, and the unbelievable real-life events thanks to the insider information shared with our small team of expert guides, by a retired NYPD detective that grew up in the shadow of the Mafia. You’ll hear about the spying, the escapes, criminality and all the drama of this most sinister yet riveting world of gangsters, while also indulging in delicious Italian food. If you’re into criminal history, the Mafia, or gangsters, then this larger-than-life tour will more than deliver! Please note: * Vegetarian options are available, upon request. * Please arrive at least 13 minutes before start time. * Make sure to dress appropriately (due to different weather conditions), and wear comfortable shoes to be able to walk 1.5 miles at a brisk pace. * Two sit down tastings and a Sicilian cannoli.

Manhattan (or the City) is home to some of the world’s biggest attractions — Times Square, the MOMA, the Met, Wall Street, you name it — but it is also where many New Yorkers live, work, and go out. To feel more in the know, tour Chinatown through its food and markets before heading to Upper Manhattan for jazz and African-American history in Harlem, or a fortune telling over Turkish coffee in the East Village. And when it comes to classic New York City things to do, you can't go wrong with a rooftop bar, or sunset cruises via ferry or water taxi, to see the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building from unique vantage points. These NYC icons never get old, even for locals.

However, for a real NYC experience, embrace the diverse art, food, and history of the boroughs outside of the city: Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Whether you spend your day at a park, in a museum in Midtown, or out shopping for designer threads at thrift stores in Williamsburg, don’t feel like you have to get caught up in a New York minute. Stop to enjoy your surroundings, and make time for people watching.


Where do locals eat in New York City?

It’s the communities and neighborhoods within the five boroughs that define the culture and energy of this iconic metropolis, and that story is best told through food. Preferably at brunch.

In the Bronx, find some of the best pizzas and pastas outside of Rome in what many New Yorkers consider the city’s true Little Italy. Meanwhile, in nearby Queens, you can travel the world in an afternoon by sampling Southeast Asian bites, Latin American dishes, and plenty of other cuisines in areas such as the Jackson Heights neighborhood.

With so many things to try, a food walking tour with a local guide can be a great way to be sure you don’t miss any of the best bites.


What are the best ways to escape New York City for a day?

When you need a break from the city action, a day trip out of New York City can lead you to other parts of the Empire State and beyond. One of the most popular NYC day trips is a drive to the Hudson Valley and the Catskills for plenty of outdoor activities such as hiking, but it’s also a must-do for food lovers and antique hunters. For those looking for a coastal calm, make the trip to Greenport, Long Island, where delicious oysters, great wine, and beach time are the only requirements for your visit.
