This is a bus/vehicle tour for private groups. It is available any time. It is fully customizable. We can accommodate 1 or more buses. We can 'step-on' (onto your bus) or provide you with a bus/vehicle. It is 2-4 hours in length.

 

Mazal tov! Jewish people have had a major presence in Brooklyn for over a century, and they currently make up 20% of the population. You can choose 1 of the following options, or you can combine them.

Option 1: Travel to Jewish areas around Brooklyn to learn more about their pious lifestyle. This includes clothing customs of modesty, 'Kosher' dietary guidelines, or Sabbath restriction rules. Learn about the ways these religious customs are practiced and the reasons why they are followed so strictly. (You can also view our guide to Hasidic Jewish rules & practices.)

May include: Williamsburg, Crown Heights, Midwood, Gravesend

Option 2: Jewish history crawl. Track the 130+ year legacy as Jews came from Manhattan and moved through Brooklyn’s neighborhoods with upward-mobility. It is a story of scholars, gangsters, pushcarts and more. Learn the tale of legendary personalities like the saintly Lubavitcher Rebbe or vicious 'Murder Incorporated' gang. Discover hidden remains in old former Jewish neighborhoods, and see their vibrant communities today.

May include: Wiliamsburg, Crown Heights, Brownsville, Flatbush
