New York Pizza Tour to Brooklyn and Coney Island
- Pickup from a centrally located meeting point
- Led by a local guide
- Lunch included
Your Brooklyn-bred tour guide will educate you on the history of pizza, from Italy to Brooklyn and, armed with this knowledge you will taste two very famous, yet different pizzas. Your first stop is Grimaldi's, located under the Brooklyn Bridge and a favorite of Frank Sinatra and, more recently, First Lady Michelle Obama. Due to its popularity Grimaldi’s always attracts a queue of people, but on arrival you will skip the lengthy lines and head to your pre-booked table to enjoy two slices of classic, thin crust Neapolitan-style pizza.
Your second stop will be at L&B Spumoni Gardens, a Brooklyn institution that has baked authentic Italian pizza for over 70 years. Here you will receive two thick, square slices of Sicilian-style pizza. Once you have tried both styles of New York pizza, you be the judge in the battle of the pizzas and decide on your favorite – Neapolitan or Sicilian.
Your tour also includes clips from movies filmed in Brooklyn, such as Saturday Night Fever, Goodfellas, The French Connection, Annie Hall and many more. You will also drive through unique neighborhoods such as Sunset Park, Bay Ridge, Coney Island and Brighton Beach. At Coney Island you have the chance to take in some sea air and stroll on the famous boardwalk, before heading back to Manhattan after a flavorsome and enriching half-day tour.

We had a great time on this tour. Our guide Paula was very funny and her knowledge of the area and its history were excellent. I loved admiring the fancy houses in Bayridge and listening to the stories of the about the people who once bed in the . We got some great pictures of the Manhattan skyline, Coney Island as well as the bridges and it was nice to get out of the city for a little while. The value for money where the pizza slices were concerned was outstanding, our only mistake was to fill up in the first restaurant which meant we couldn't eat as much in the second which was a shame as that was our favourite pizza of the two! Save time for some ice cream in the second restaurant too, it was fantastic!
