    5 star ratingIncredibly interesting and beautiful tour. The victorian flatbush tour was amazing. I’ve lived in the neighborhood for 12 years and learned more on 2 hours then the rest of my years here combined. Jeremy, the guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the whole neighborhood and it’s history, not just memorized talking points.

    5 star ratingFlatbush Victorian Mansion TOur Spectacular Experience I did the Flatbush Victorian mansions tour with a side of Flatbush Dutch history and boy, was it fascinating! I live in the area and pass most of these structures but had no idea of their grand history over time. The mansions themselves are truly spectacular and any architectural lover or nerd would love them as well as history buffs. Definitely worth it.
