Private tour of Brooklyn; from the bridge to Coney Island

Once an independent city, Brooklyn still has a feel of being different from Manhattan. Each of the borough's neighborhoods has its own allure. There is an attitude, it's a Brooklyn thing and you better believe the hype. However, in order to get the hype, you've got to visit Kings County.

Adam Sandler, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Murphy, Marisa Tomei, Barbra Streisand, Woody Allen, Jay-Z, Mel Brooks, Harvey Keitel, Jerry Seinfeld, Spike Lee, Darren Aronofsky, Jimmy Fallon, Biggie Smalls, and even Michael Jordan were born here.

Brooklyn is an incubator of stars and a magnet for stars. Today Brooklyn is home to Sir Patrick Stewart, Lena Dunham, Sarah Jessica Parker, Paul Giammatti and many others, who are attracted by the beautiful homes and the less pretentious yet proud attitude displayed by Brooklynites.

Enough with the "tawking" and let me show you the place I call home.


- Williamsburg
- Brooklyn Heights
- Park Slope
- Downtown Brooklyn
- Cobble Hill
- Fort Greene

A Recent Review of this tour

We did borough of Brooklyn tour with Jose and It was a great experience. "Thank you very much Jose". The tour was very well organized and we were very satified that we did this tour. Definitely, one of the must do tours of New York. 6 hours tour was just enough, no less-no more time was necessary.
