Food blogger Beauty & The Beets loved our Williamsburg Bites Brooklyn food tour!

"For the past decade, I visit the city several times a year and have been making up for lost time. But one thing I have never done in New York is a food tour. Again, I don’t know why. I tend to take a food tour in every other city I visit, but never New York. But now I am a NYC food tour virgin no more. I recently signed up for a food tour in Brooklyn. A tour called Williamsburg Bites: A Brooklyn Foodie Adventure. The cost of the tour was only $50, which is cheaper than most any other tour I have taken in any other city (and they New York City is the most expensive!) And honestly, for that lower price, I was expecting a mediocre tour with limited samples and not a lot of personality. And I was wrong."

Dog Adopted on our Sunday Funday Brooklyn Tour!

One of my all time favorite places in Brooklyn is Artists & Fleas. Aside from all the amazing vendors they have, they have hosted some fun events and are very much part of the Williamsburg community.

In celebration of National Dog Day on August 27, Artists & Fleas hosted Found My Animal for a day of puppy love, raising awareness for fostering and adoption, and to find forever homes for some four-legged pals.

Mable’s Smokehouse has been a neighborhood gem in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, since it opened in 2012. A BBQ joint is a bit unorthodox for the neighborhood and perhaps that precisely why it’s so beloved. Praised by the New York Times, Food & Wine Magazine, Eater, Travel Channel, New York Magazine, The Village Voice and many many more. We were fortunate to chat with Meghan Love, of the husband and wife team behind it all.

Blogger Brooklyn Travel Addict loves our Sunday Funday!

April 11, 2015 We were so pleased to have the Brooklyn Travel Addict join our Sunday Funday Brooklyn Tour. Here is what she had to say: Like a Local Tours has chosen to highlight this “real life” side of NYC with specialized tours in various neighborhoods in the city. Curious to see what they considered “a local,” I joined founder Lauren Beebe, and her team for their Boozy Brooklyn Food Tour in Williamsburg. I knew the tour was authentic when the first 2 stops were places I actually frequent, but was pleased to discover many new places that I had never been! If you’re visiting New York for the first time and are willing to break away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, check out their Sunday Funday tour!
