Williamsburg Food and History Tour (Guide: Rachel) - Rachel is very passionate about Brooklyn and its history, and this absolutely comes through in her explanations of the Williamsburg neighbourhood. She is a regular customer at her three hand-selected food stops and has a great knowledge of the histories of each business. I can't recommend this experience enough!

Highly recommend this sweet and knowledgeable tour guide! - Rachel is very knowledgeable about her hometown and willing to go beyond to make the tour relevant and interesting. We visited family- owned businesses, with social purposes, which was gratifying. I would highly recommend this for a "taste" of Brooklyn. Her little furry companion was as sweet as she was!
