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.

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

This tour was a lot of fun. Dani gave a really interesting perspective on the neighborhoods and contextualized the city in a way I could never have found without her guidance.

Great experience for people who want to discover Brooklyn (it's history and interesting neighborhoods). Prepare to walk and take pictures! If you have a tiny Bladder, best to plan ahead!

This experience was great!!! We got to see a few different parts of Brooklyn that were very different from each other. Parts that on my own I would have never explored. It is a lot of walking but very enjoyable.
