We took the subway to Brooklyn from Manhattan, and easily found our way to meet Dom near the base of the Brooklyn Bridge. Some might wonder what conditions were like, meeting someone at the base of a bridge...it was fine! It seemed safe and easy to navigate, and we passed a lot of cute shops and eateries that looked like... More

I joined a small group of 'Made in Williamsburg' tour and Dom is amazing. He is nice and is very knowledgable with the history in Brooklyn. The shops he introduced us are all very interesting and food is amazing.

On our trips to NYC, always concentrated on Manhattan.. We had a great tour with Dom to explore Brooklyn.. He is personable, easy going, and extremely knowledgable. I would definitely do another tour. Especially in warmer weather!

Thank you so much for the positive review - it means a lot! It was also great to learn about Montreal from you. When it's warmer, please come on another jaunt around my native Brooklyn! :) Yours truly, Dom Gervasi More

I took the Made in Williamsburg tour with Dom and it was an awesome experience. The group was small and Dom made us feel really welcomed into his neighbourhood. It was a well thought out tour in terms of historic and modern information and there were plenty of stops along the way to rest, sample some unique food or get... More

While my BFF and I had been to NYC many times, we'd never been to Brooklyn so I wanted a tour. I researched online and found this tour company and we hit the jackpot! Dom was born and raised in Brooklyn. Not only does he know his way around the DUMBO area and the intricacies of its history, he knows... More

I went last Saturday to a tour in Dumbo. Was Absolutely amazing. The tour guide DOM, gave us explanations about facts that I didn't know before.. and took us to places that I wouldn't have enjoyed them or see them by myself. We met a lot of local owners and shops.

Our group of friends has been visiting NYC for years and we wanted something a little different to do on this visit. Fortunately, our group's NYC leader found this walking tour and we could not have asked for a better experience! Not only did Dom take us to very exciting, smaller businesses in Brooklyn, but he also gave a brief,... More
