What you'll do

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.

***Please contact me for additional dates and for customized Brooklyn tours***

I am Dani, a travel writer, originally from Germany. Since 2017, I have been introducing visitors from all over the world to Brooklyn.

I fell in love with Brooklyn during my first visit to New York City over a decade ago, and after traveling the world for seven years, I settled down in NYC. As a travel writer, I am exploring constantly, which is why I know Brooklyn better than most of its residents.

Over the years, I have lived in 9 different Brooklyn neighborhoods and I will show you this diverse borough from my very own perspective while sharing facts about history, culture, architecture, socio-economic issues and a lot more.

Accolades:
In 2019, I won the Airbnb award “Host with the most five-star reviews in New York City

Where you'll be

We will explore some of Brooklyn's greatest and most fascinating neighborhoods. We will start in hipster Williamsburg, head to artsy Bushwick from there, pay a visit to a Jewish Orthodox community in South Williamsburg and end the tour with a stroll through historic Cobble Hill and Brooklyn Heights near the Brooklyn Bridge. You'll get to see five very different Brooklyn neighborhoods in one day!

We had a great tour with Dani. She met us at the designated time and place and she did a great job showing us Brooklyn. Dani knew the history and unique nature of each neighborhood. She was very engaged with us the whole time and really cared about providing a great experience. We finished the tour on the beautiful Brooklyn Promenade with a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn Bridge. Plan on walking a lot! Highly recommend.

We had a great time on our tour with Dani. Talk about rediscovering Brooklyn. After not having been back for a number of years this was a great way to rediscover all the fantastic neighborhoods. Dani is a wealth of knowledge and did a great job of guiding our group. Was fun going exploring with other like minded travelers and also learning about the positives and the negatives with the transformation of Brooklyn. We had a great time and have been talking about it amongst ourselves and to others in the days since so the positive experience clearly stayed with us.

Dani creates a beautiful, informative, extremely interesting walk/tour of an area she personally has fallen in love with. Yet she shares a community's (many individual ones that make up Brooklyn) history in its many colors, the challenges and the beauty, a real life look into how Brooklyn has traveled in time. A true treasure of a tour. She is very comprehensive and therefore her tour does not skimp on time, its length determined by what she needs to cover! She does so generously and with care. LOVED the tour! GO, you will be enriched with new information and your heart might just be left in Brooklyn! Thank you Dani!
