Your meeting point will be customized: we will meet you anywhere you'd like, or whichever place is most convenient for you (Manhattan, Brooklyn, your hotel, or anywhere else). We usually suggest for you to take the subway to Brooklyn - we will give a convenient meeting location, and directions. This saves you money because you do not need to pay for Manhattan pickup.
The tour will be crafted to suit the length of your choosing. We are happy to make suggestions about how long your tour should be. Most walking tours are 2 hours. Most driving tours are 3-4 hours. Occasionally there are tours longer than that.
Private tours - Our private tours are popular with couples and small groups: families, friends, colleagues, etc. It's also not unusual for someone to take a tour by themself!
Group tours - We cater to groups of all sizes. We provide walking, bus and step-on guide services.
Private and custom tours begin at $90.00 per hour (most tours are 2 hours in length). Certain options are priced on an individual basis, for which we will provide a quote based on your details The prices listed here include your whole group, they are not the price per person (except with 10 or more people). Here is the basic pricing schedule:
|Group size||Rate per hour|
|10+||$13 per person per hour ($26 per person for 2 hours)|
We often recommend touring on foot because walking is the best way to deeply experience a neighborhood in Brooklyn. We will tailor the pace and distance to suit your personal desire and walking abilities. There is also the option to travel by vehicle (providing more of an overview covering multiple neighborhoods), which we can provide. We also sometimes recommend traveling by subway - it's fast and efficient (most of the time!)

Here are some of Brooklyn's top popular neighborhoods, activities and experiences to choose from:
Each of Brooklyn's top neighborhoods has its own unique vibe, personality and flavor. On a custom tour we can get a general overview by swinging through several neighborhoods, or we can pick just one or two to delve into more thoroughly. Certain neighborhoods are closer or further from others; when planning the tour we will provide advice about the best route to follow, and how to get around.
Brooklyn's got something for every interest. Your tour can be crafted to suit one or two specific themes, or we can include a little bit of everything. Most neighborhoods are abundant with culture, shopping, food, views and photo opportunities. Your tour can be presented as an overall sightseeing experience, or we can delve into any interest or theme of your choosing. We're happy to offer suggestions!
Brooklyn's overwhelming explosion in popularity is the product of gentrification. This phenomenon is a catalyst that brings new residents, businesses, cultural institutions and venture capital to formerly neglected districts. It breathes new life into forgotten brownstones, townhouses, lofts and industrial bunkers, fusing them together in a whirlwind blend of culture and excitement. It's a transformation that sees drastic increases in economic growth and quality of life options. It becomes a rallying call for artists, creatives, idealists and entrepreneurs to converge, collaborate, and aspire for greatness.
Gentrification also brings controversy and serious issues because it often results in higher living costs and neighborhood demographic changes (dispossession of longtime lower-income communities in residential neighborhoods). The severe issue is when gentrification takes place in an area that was not deserted or forgotten - only neglected by society. On our tours we delve further into this subject and examine the good, the bad and the ugly.
