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.

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

I fell in love with Brooklyn during my first visit to New York in 2009, and after traveling the world for seven years, I settled down in NYC. I am excited to show you the borough that I am proud to call my home. 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”

If you want to learn about Brooklyn, don’t go anywhere else. Book this experience, and you’ll see all of it in its true colors. Dani is a fantastic storyteller and a professional, passionate, and patient guide. She walked me through every corner of Brooklyn and made me look at it from a different perspective. In the end, I was ready to move there. She is genuinely in love and tuned with the city. Her passion makes this experience even more extraordinary. Also, if you’re like me, passionate about vintage stores, history, and street art this experience will blow your mind.

Absolut empfehlenswert! Dani hat eine solche Begeisterung und Liebe für Brooklyn, die Sie gerne weitergibt - mit tollen Geschichten, interessanten Fakten, wunderschönen Plätzen und vor allem mit super hilfreichen Tipps. Alle unsere Fragen wurden beantwortet, viele hilfreiche Infos zum Leben in Brooklyn im allgemeinen bis hin zu Insider Tipps: Essen, Shoppen, Events und vieles mehr. Wir waren so begeistert, dass wir am nächsten Tag nochmals zum Startpunkt der Tour sind, da es so viel zu entdecken gibt. Lohnt sich auf jeden Fall!!
