Urban Oyster Tours
Urban Oyster Tours gathers together guides who have passions for local, artisanal food and drink as well as for the more off-the-beaten-track urban destinations. These aficionados share their enthusiasms with visitors, as in one tour that goes to a location in Brooklyn where craft beers are brewed, giving participants a chance to learn about beer making and to sample the borough's offerings; another trip explores the cuisines and cultures of BoCoCa (Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill and Carroll Gardens). In each of the wanderings, you'll be treated to stories about the City's colorful history. Urban Oyster's guides also offer a culinary class on "cheese, chocolate and booze" as well as customized group tours built around your gastronomic or liquor preferences.
