Brooklyn, United States

Experience hosted by Dani

Hosted in English, German

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.
Other things to note
Bring a valid MTA metro card (ideally a weekly card with unlimited rides) and wear comfortable shoes. We'll be traveling by public transportation and we will be covering a lot of ground!

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 know a real Brooklyn walk with Dani. Beyond being an extraordinary person, she is a pro in what she does. This is not a regular tour. She will show you historic places, will tell stories and will take you to the hidden gems of the place. It doesn’t matter if you’re visiting for the first time or you e been here before. There is always something new to explore with Dani. I took her tours few times, and I’m definitely will do it again when I’m back in New York.

Don’t hesitate. Take this tour! And take it early in your visit so you can go spend more time in your favorite spots. Dani is an excellent guide. She is knowledgeable, friendly, and her affection for Brooklyn and it’s many faces is genuine. We had people from 3 foreign countries, college student to older adults, singles, friends, parents and grown children, and we were all interested and engaged in the tour. Dani had us all talking, asking questions and enjoying the city.

Dani is a great host, she's very knowledgeable about Brooklyn and gave us a fun experience of the city. I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone who's interested to see more of Brooklyn. I lived in Brooklyn over a year and still learned many new things from Dani.
