Qué harás

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.

Donde estarás

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 is fantastic! I thoroughly enjoyed my tour and Dani was able to answer any questions I had about the neighborhood and New York City in general. I expressed some interest in vintage and clothing which Dani was able to give me amazing recommendations right away. I highly suggest you book this or their 5 hour tour at the start of your trip to experience the city like a local.

Very good walking tour. Dani clearly knows her stuff and is very passionate about Brooklyn. The tour showed us many interesting spots and we had chances to take pictures as the tour was well-paced. Dani also did a good job of managing a larger tour group. Dani also gave us personalized recommendations and made sure each of us had directions etc after the tour. My only note of caution is to make sure you want to do a 4.5-hour walking tour -- I did, so this was great, but Dani also has a shorter tour and a pizza tour if that is more up your alley :-)

Dani was simply wonderful. As a fellow Airbnb Experience guide, I know how hard it is to create a truly memorable experience. Hers was that and much more. She took us through a variety of changing neighborhoods and had a great depth of knowledge about each. Have comfortable shoes though, because you will walk a lot! Highly recommended!

Dani's love for Brooklyn, and for the Williamsburg neighborhoods, was evident and energizing throughout the tour. She shared history and background that gave life and color to the neighborhoods, the shops and sights that we saw. This was a very fun and interesting way to get to know Brooklyn. And Dani is an amazing tour guide!
