A Slice of Brooklyn Pizza Tour Celebrates Second Year Doing Bus Tours of Brooklyn

A Slice of Brooklyn Pizza Tour is celebrating its 2nd year showing tourists from around the world what locals, pizza aficionados, food critics, the Food Network, the Travel Channel and the Zagat Survey already know about the best pizzerias in Brooklyn while exploring some of the borough’s most unique neighborhoods.

Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) August 28, 2007 — Manhattan? Fugheddaboudit! For two years in a row, A Slice of Brooklyn Pizza Tour continues to be the only guided bus tour that allows tourists to hop aboard a bus in Manhattan and be transported to one of the most famous…and infamous…places in the world while stopping at two of its award-winning pizzerias: Grimaldi’s in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn for their thin crust, Neapolitan style pizza and L&B Spumoni Gardens in the Bensonhurst section of Brooklyn for their thicker, Sicilian style pizza.

This 4 ½ hour tour also includes an audio-visual historical tour of many of Brooklyn’s diverse neighborhoods, landmarks, points of interest and famous movie locations that have made Brooklyn legendary and inspired Lonely Planet, the world’s largest independent travel publisher, to name it as one of the top 10 hottest travel destinations for 2007.

Since it started in August of 2005, A Slice of Brooklyn Pizza Tour has received local, national and international press from such outlets as CNN, the New York Times, the London Times, the Lonely Planet guide, USA Today, SAVEUR, Food Arts and the Associated Press as well as an appearance on the YES Network’s “Ultimate Road Trip” show.

Here’s what James Doran of the London Times had to say about the tour:
“Over the years in New York, I have taken countless friends and relations on different guided tours of Manhattan, but A Slice of Brooklyn Pizza beats them all.”

A Slice of Brooklyn Pizza Tour has received a consistent 5 star rating from the countless number of people from the United States and around the world who have taken the tour.

Tony Muia, A Slice of Brooklyn Pizza Tour’s founder and tour guide, is a proud Brooklyn native who, for over 35 years, has been eating the phenomenal pizza that his tour hightlights while proudly showing off his hometown’s wonderful neighborhoods.

Muia says, “I know Brooklyn and I know pizza. I thought why not put together something I love while enlightening people?”

Muia also conducts corporate and private tours and says he has plans for other tours of the borough in the near future. “We hope to be launching other Brooklyn tours very soon such as the new neighborhood tour as well as the Christmas lights tour which we’ll be doing this coming December.”

Muia says both tours will continue to pick passengers up in Manhattan and showcase more of the neighborhoods, culture, food and diversity of his hometown.
