I think the walking tours are the best way of getting know the new areas or just find out a lot about places we consider well-known. It is like re-discovery the past and meet present. Dom is one of those passionate persons who can pull people together and held them interested in a subject. I loved everything about this tour (it was Bensonhurst) : our guide, our group. people we've met on our different stops. Mixture of the history, heritage, present and food - awesome combination. Eat, pray, love :)))
We will definitely attend other tours by Dom and I am pretty sure we will have great time again.

I booked a tour of Red Hook for ten friends and family members for my husband's birthday, and everyone had a wonderful time. We had a mix of folks from Brooklyn, Manhattan and out of town, and it was informative and engaging for everyone. History buffs will love the detail Dom provides, shoppers will love visiting the artisans (and buying the crafts), and foodies will devour the handmade treats. Dom was even kind enough to make us a dinner reservation for after the tour ended.

All in all, this was a great event--so good that we're planning to get a group together to do the DUMBO tour as well!

I took my mom for a tour of one of her old stomping grounds, Bensonhurst. Dom was a ton of fun as were all of the folks we met on the tour. We learned a lot about the neighborhood, the people, and the businesses there - and gained insights into how it has changed over the years. Really, a wonderful way to wander Brooklyn. My mom and I will be joining Dom again soon to get to know Williamsburg.

It was a beautiful day and that morning we decided to do a walking tour. Dom, the host, was very accommodating to accept the last minute booking.
The tour commences from the ferry journey, so don't miss the option to commence the tour from Manhattan. Dom's passion for the area is unquestionable. He relays the history and story behind the various landmarks. He knows many of the local business owners who also add their unique view.
The walk is easy, the pace is set to suit, but do make sure you wear appropriate outdoor clothes and suitable footwear, as the pavements can be uneven and there are cobbled streets too.
Overall it's a unique local view that you would not normally see and well worth seeing.

Dom is a terrific tour guide! He is a Brooklyn native and extremely enthusiastic and knowledgable about his beloved borough. We learned a lot about the history of the Brooklyn waterfront and were fascinated with the new and unique businesses featured on the DUMBO tour. The entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well in this great borough, and you won't find a better tour guide than Dom to show it off! Thanks, Dom!
