Brooklyn, New York may be famous for its trendy craft beer scene right now but you should have seen it in the 19th century! Brooklyn was once home to 48 breweries, this ancient trade ... moredisappeared from the famous borough in the 1970s. On this BK walking tour, you will get a chance to learn more about how beer is made, explore the pre-prohibition era breweries that still stand and taste plenty of NY craft beers along with some classic NYC pizza. 

Our tours focus on the small, local (and usually hole-in-the-wall) spots that you never would've noticed on your own. Our local guides will introduce you to local shop owners, brewers, and more as we show you the places where we like to hang out. New York City is a walking city, the best way to experience it is wandering around its many diverse neighborhoods, and with small groups, you'll feel more like you're hanging out with friends rather than a big tour being herded around. We believe that local travel should truly benefit the local community. Too often when people travel they stick to things that are comfortable, like chain restaurants or shops that they recognize. That's why we promote all small businesses that support other local businesses and suppliers.

Whether you're a foodie, a craft beer fan, history buff, or just really love hanging out in NYC, this is the tour for you.

Beer and Chocolate: A match made in Belgium! It’s hard to meet a more authentic Belgian than Werner. His two biggest passions are chocolate and beer. He has found a way to fuse Belgium’s ... moremost famous products into interesting chocolate and beer pairing tastings. Werner has truly found a hole in the market. His years of experience as a as a chocolatier for the world famous Callebaut Belgian Fine Chocolate and his knowledge of beer as a beer sommelier make him an expert in both fields.

Werner's philosophies: Craftmanship is an art. Passion is everything.

Beer and chocolate have a lot more in common than you would think! If you think of beers like porter and stout, they both have that chocolate aroma, just from the combination of malt, yeast and hops. The similarity of beer and chocolate lies within their complexity, in their flavours but also in production and the ingredients.

Werner has found out that you can perfectly pair artisan beers and fine chocolate pralines, providing a delicate flavour harmony. Or even more interesting: find contrasting flavours in beer and chocolate to strengthen both their subtleties. 

After a lot of research, Werner now organises interesting beer and chocolate tastings all over Belgium. His knowledge and expertise in beer and chocolate is impressive!

Waiheke is famous for its wines, with delectable Syrah and Bordeaux blends topping the list when it comes to wine varieties that this region is famous for. However, there is so much ... moremore to this island than amazing vineyards and skilled winemakers. So, we though that we would combine a traditional winemaking tour with the opportunity to experience some of Waiheke's other attractions. Thus, our unique Waiheke wine tours were born!

Our full and half day tours let you take breaks from the business of tasting wine to swim in the sun splashed sea, rove through breathtaking nature trails and olive groves, and explore some of the island's most buzzing bars. As well as wine tasting tours, we also offer opportunities for craft beer and olive tasting experience.

Choose our gold tour for sunbathing, both beer and wine tasting, a degustation experience, a beach swimming and sunbathing slot, a tour of a vineyard and some delicious lunch options. Alternatively, opt for the silver tour, which is much the same except lunch is at a cafe by the sea.
