Join a like-minded local to explore NY’s hippest local neighbourhood, and discover that there’s more to this urban paradise than you might have heard!
Discover the area’s heritage, and see how its history of immigration has helped shape it into such a diverse area where you’ll find global influences everywhere from the cuisine to the street art.
Browse independent boutiques, vintage shops, second hand record stores and a flea market where you’ll find more artisan produced crafts than flea market junk.
Grab a craft beer or stop by an independent coffee shop, pick up some delicious street food or head to a classic NY deli before you head to the local park and to relax like the locals!

Williamsburg: Brooklyn’s creative neighbourhood | New YorkReview by: Mark H
Brooklyn walking tour
My wife and I love to travel & when we do we love to see the 'real', less touristy parts of a new city or country. These experiences are perfect, with locals like Kamilla offering a genuine look around. Kamilla was great at tailoring the experience to our needs & very flexible in changing up the plans (at our request). She is very knowledgable about New York & very pleasant to spend time with. We enjoyed our time in Brooklyn...it was definitely a great experience!
