The following specialized tours are offered to groups:

For Charter Groups:
We have over ten years years experience with group charter tours. We consider any self-contained group a charter. This can be a private limosine tour, or a multi-coach tour for several hundered passengers. We offer "step on" guides when you provide your own vehicle. We can also provide a vehicle for you; we work with several luxury motorcoach and limosine companies. Prices vary depending on your needs and the tour you choose. Substantial group discounts off the public price are often available. Charter tours require a minimum two week advance payment by check.

Brooklyn Highlights: The classic overview of Brooklyn, with a discussion of local history, anecdotes, and arachitecture. We periodically modify the itinerary to stay relevant, as neighborhoods evolve and current events make headlines. This "bus-and-walking" tour includes several short walks. Tour lasts 3 to 4 hours. Departure from Manhattan or Brooklyn. Price for individuals: $35 per adult; $30 for seniors and students; $20 under 12 yrs. Price for step on guide: $220 and up.

Brooklyn Experience: We offer charter groups the opportunity to create a special interest tour: invent an itinerary, focus on a theme, meet artists in their studios, visit places off the beaten path, etc .... Organizing a family reunion? Take our unique Family Heritage tour. We work out a custom designed visit touching your family's personal Brooklyn history. My esteemed colleague and former Brooklynite, Juliette, aptly puts it this way: "Brooklynites spend half our lives trying to get out of Brooklyn, looking for greener pastures; then, we spend the rest of our lives waxing nostalgic about the good old times in Brooklyn." So true, so true....Prices vary. Experience tours require minimum six weeks preparation. Inquire for details.

Manhattan Highlights: It's difficult to imagine anyone wanting to leave Brooklyn, but if your interests lie elsewhere, our expert guides can show you Manhattan like nobody's business. These are not "point and gawk" tours. We'll help you see New York as New Yorkers do: beyond cliches..... to the heart of the City. Tours last 4 hours. Price for step-on guide: $200 and up. Inquire for details.

For Individuals or Groups:

Brooklyn Select Tour: We hop on public transportation to to visit three distinct neighborhoods on foot. Public transportation (usually the subway) gets us to our neighborhood destinations. As we stroll through each neighborhood we define landmark architecture, descibe local history, and discuss changes affecting the community. We select from these contrasting neighborhoods: historic Park Slope; historic Brooklyn Heights; landmark sections of Fort Green and/or Clinton Hill; or ethnic and artistic enclaves in Williamsburg. This is a real streetside experience for those who enjoy walking. Price: $15 per person.
