Make the most of NYC! This Private Total Immigrant Tour combines two of our most popular adventures (Tenements, Tales, and Tastes and Brewed in Brooklyn) into one epic all-day private adventure.
Get in touch with the tasty culture of NYC on a culinary journey around the city that starts off at a location where many new citizens are made official, City Hall. Here at the northern edge of the colonial city we’ll start our journey with a delicious Dutch breakfast treat, just one of many foods that has made its way over thanks to the immigrant population in NYC.
Next up on your private tour, we’ll make our way in a loop around the NYC LES, visiting 100-year old bakeries, churches, markets, and historic sites. We’ll stroll the streets of Little Italy just as Lucky Luciano might have a century ago. Marvel at former and still operating synagogues and Jewish clothing stores. We’ll dive into latin culture at the Essex St. Market and take in cultural sites like the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, and the African Burial Ground. Finally we’ll end up in the crowded and teaming streets of Chinatown, where you’ll feel like you're in Shanghai!
As we walk, we'll stop to sink our teeth into amazing stories and amazing food. Knishes, tacos, dumplings, and more. We’ll taste why New York City is the center of the world and the culinary legacy left here by those that have passed by Lady Liberty on their way to the American Dream.
Once you have had enough to eat, it's time to toast our way through the past and present of beer brewing in Brooklyn! Once home to 48 breweries, this ancient trade disappeared from the borough in the 1970s, only to be reborn in recent years with craft breweries leading the way. If you want a taste (quite literally...) of the history behind beer brewing in New York, look no further!
We'll take a behind-the-scenes local look at how beer is made at one of Brooklyn's present-day breweries. Explore the pre-prohibition era as we check out 19th-century brewery buildings, visit a landmarked building, and share stories of the German immigrants who lived and worked in the neighbourhood.
Plus, don’t forget all the craft beer and food along the way! We’ll enjoy a number of great Brooklyn brews from all kinds of spots, and stop off at a local pizza joint for lunch.
Join us as we raise a glass to the history and masters of beer!
