A Slice of Brooklyn Bus Tours (http://www.asliceofbrooklyn.com), the leader in guided bus tours of Brooklyn’s favorite foods, neighborhoods, landmarks and famous movie locations is celebrating its 12th anniversary.
Founder, CEO and lifelong Brooklynite, Tony Muia, started the company on August 1, 2005 with a slogan (“Manhattan? FUHGETTABOUDIT!”) and a mission: to introduce people from around the country and around the world to all the amazing things Brooklyn has to offer visitors to NYC.
Over the years the company has introduced over 500,000 people to the borough through such popular guided bus tours as the Pizza Tour, the Chocolate Tour, the Neighborhood Tour and the Christmas Lights Tour of Dyker Heights.
The tours have been featured on the Today Show, the Travel Channel and the Food Network and have earned the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for six straight years in a row. Best of all, the tours conveniently depart from Manhattan which was Muia’s goal from the very beginning – way before the borough was considered the cool borough it is today.
“I wanted to create an easy way for visitors to hop on a bus in Manhattan and experience Brooklyn from a native’s perspective” says Muia. “When I started doing tours twelve years ago, tourists didn’t consider Brooklyn a travel destination. Nor were tour guides bothering to go to Manhattan to pick people up by bus and bring them to Brooklyn. So I took it upon myself to introduce people to my hometown, to create a new way to see the borough and, in the process, become Brooklyn’s official ambassador.”
“My guides and I have always strived to exceed our guests’ expectations of what a bus tour should be like through the use of our multimedia audio-visual presentations on the screens of the bus,” said Muia. “They include slides, music, montages of famous Brooklynites and the respective movie clips when we visit famous movie locations like Saturday Night Fever, Goodfellas, The Godfather, Moonstruck and so much more.”
Added Muia, “What also sets us apart from other tour companies is that our guides were all born and raised in Brooklyn….
