Vad du kommer att göra

I will show you the contrasts of one of Brooklyn’s most popular neighborhoods: Williamsburg. What used to be a blue-collar industrial neighborhood has transformed into a lively, artsy area packed with restaurants, trendy shops and bars. There are two vastly different sides to Williamsburg: the cool, hipster part that has made the neighborhood a “must go” place for anyone visiting New York City, and the Orthodox Jewish community, which is a stark contrast to the young and fashionable part of Williamsburg.

During this 2-hr tour, I will introduce you to both sides of this diverse neighborhood. I will show you some of the best spots to shop, eat and drink in Williamsburg (with a focus on small, locally owned businesses), some of the most striking murals and street art, and show you one of the best Manhattan skyline views. You will get to know the best independent boutiques in Williamsburg, vintage shops, the best places to grab a coffee, and you’ll know where to grab a slice of a classic New York pizza.

After an introduction to Brooklyn and learning about Williamsburg’s history, we’ll move on to the lesser-known side of this neighborhood: the Hasidic Jewish community. You will learn about one the largest Orthodox Jewish communities in the world, gain a better understanding of this deeply religious group, and get an insight on the unique traditions and customs of Hasidic Jews.

I am Dani, a travel writer, originally from Germany. Since 2017, I have been introducing visitors from all over the world to Brooklyn.

After traveling the world for seven years and living in five different countries as an expat, I put down roots in my favorite city in the world. I am excited to show you my favorite neighborhood in Brooklyn!

As a travel writer, I am exploring constantly, which is why I know Brooklyn better than most of its residents. Over the years, I have lived in 9 different Brooklyn neighborhoods. I will show you the diversity of the borough from my very own perspective while sharing facts about history, culture, architecture, socio-economic issues and a lot more.

Accolades:
In 2019, I won the Airbnb award “Host with the most five-star reviews in New York City”, and I have received over 1,200 reviews for my tours.

Var ni kommer att vara

Williamsburg is one of Brooklyn's most popular neighborhoods, offering a unique mix of art, hipster vibes, excellent shopping, and some of the best food in New York City.

The neighborhood is just across the East River from Manhattan (one stop on the subway), which means it offers fantastic skyline views, which I will show you.

Williamsburg is also known for its outstanding food and flea markets, which I will introduce you to.

Dani was an amazing tour guide! She was extremely knowledgeable of the area and it’s history. She was very passionate about the future and well-being of her community. Extremely personable!

Where do we begin? For starters, Dani is awesome. She is not only the nicest tour guide, but she really knows Brooklyn and she isn't hiding any of the dark history. We really appreciated how she had visuals and landmarks to guide us through this rich borough. By the end of the tour I not only felt like I could live in Brooklyn, I felt like I could be best of friends with Dani. Our crew highly recommends this tour, especially if you're ready to do something different on your next NYC visit. Ben, Sandi, and Luis. Thank you!!!
