To celebrate my mom's 85th birthday. I hired Michael to organize a tour of Ellis Island for my family. I had initially watched Mike's virtual tour of Ellis Island and was so impressed, I reached out to him about a live tour. He was a pleasure to work with and well organized which made everything easy. He made all the arrangements so all we had to do was to show up. Mike knows Ellis Island like the back of his hand and clearly the history of this historic place has meaning for him. We all learned a great deal about Ellis Island and immigration and enjoyed Mike's warmth and easy manner. If you want to tour Ellis Island, you can't do better than having Mike as your guide.

Michael led me and a group of friends on a tour of Williamsburg, Brooklyn based on A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, one of my favorite books. The two-hour tour stopped at many places that were in the novel. It was amazing to feel the book come to life as Michael read key passages in front of places like the library and the school that figured so prominently in the book. Michael also was very knowledgeable about Smith, the era, Williamsburg and Brooklyn in general -- we peppered him with questions. Michael was such a friendly, warm host. He helped us with all the little details that us out-of-towners needed help with. He even walked us to the restaurant where we dined after the tour. Thanks again, Michael, and we hope you develop more book tours!

I booked the "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn" book tour with Ray's Food and Walking Tour. Our tour guide was Michael and it was a fantastic experience. There were 6 of us and we all read the book leading up to our tour and Michael took us to so many locations referenced in the book. Not only was he knowledgeable about the book but there was so much history to everything that he shared with us. We all loved the tour and talked all the way home about how it couldn't have been any better. Michael was personable and interesting and perfect for our group of ladies excited to be out touring Brooklyn for the day!

We spent a delightful 3 hours with Mike from Ray's FAWT. He was extremely knowledgeable and we learnt so much, not just about Brooklyn, but also about the many immigrant communities that make up this amazing neighbourhood and all of their incredible and delicious foods. We started with a tasty drink, then visited a Glatt kosher Jewish deli, a pizza place, coffee shop and ended with dessert. Thoroughly recommended and a great way to spend a few hours. After the food tour, we took the ferry to Dumbo where we spent a few hours, and had more great food. A fantastic way to get a 'taste' of Brooklyn.

I booked the Brooklyn food tour with a friend who was in from out of town. We had Billy as our guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area and took us to some delicious places. I would highly recommend booking this tour if you like to eat and want to get an understanding of the neighborhood.
