Walking tours are an ideal way to explore neighborhoods, get a little bit of exercise, and reverse seasickness after one too many boat tours. See sights on foot with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get a Red Hook, DUMBO, or Williamsburg walking tour from Made in Brooklyn Tours (a $35 value).
Made in Brooklyn’s walking tours are guided by born-and-bred Brooklynites, who highlight the culture, creativity, and artistic diversity of three of the borough’s neighborhoods. Freewheel on foot through the Red Hook, DUMBO, or Williamsburg areas, stopping along the way at various local businesses and studios that showcase artisans, craftspeople, chefs, and manholes covered up with pizza pies. Amblers will travel to different destinations on each excursion, such as Williamsburg’s own Brooklyn Winery, where they can check out the urban vintner’s digs. Tours last approximately two hours, and meeting places vary depending on neighborhood and sandstorm warnings, so check the schedule prior to departure.
