Tours by Frieda reviews
She took us through Williamsburgh Brooklyn into the hasidic area and we sampled food. She told us about the history as well as an insiders view of what it was like for her growing up in the community. more »
This is my second time doing the Boro Park food tour with Frieda. I loved it so much the first time I booked it again when my mom was in town- I learned so many new things and had an absolutely... more »
Frieda was TERRIFIC! She is extremely organized making every step of the tour clear and understandable. It started with the photo Frieda sent of the location where the tour starts. What a help for those of us not familiar with Williamsburg! I have taken 50+ tours in the last few years in the US and Europe and it can be extremely anxiety producing if you don't know exactly where the tour starts. We easily found Frieda and she was prepared with quality earphones for everyone so that we could always hear her commentary as we walked. Frieda respectfully explained the Hasidic traditions in great detail and in a very engaging way. She asked questions of what we might know and also answered all of our questions. Since Frieda had been a part of the Hasidim, she is very knowledgeable about how the people think and what their values are. Frieda also included some stops along the way where we saw typical toys and tasted typical foods. These helped us further understand the community. Frieda had begun with introductions asking everyone what they hoped to get from the tour. Then, at the end, we sat in a deli with some typical kosher samples and Frieda gave us the opportunity to comment or ask questions. Frieda was very open and yet always respectful of this community to which she no longer belongs. This tour was one the very best I have ever taken. Thank you, Frieda!!!!!
Frieda was OUTSTANDING! So nuanced and tailored, please do yourself a favour, and don't miss her tour. You'd get a personal experience from a courageous lady helping you look beneath the hood / busy myths & better understand the culture, & practises observed by many.
