I went on the tour with two friends -- one, a visitor from Germany, had found out about the tour, and I simply went along. It was fascinating from start to finish. Dom is a fount of enthusiastic knowledge. I found myself learning about the history not only of Brooklyn and Williamsburg, but of New York altogether. Layers and layers... More

4 ladies from Ottawa, Canada. Did the Williamsburg tour Apr. 21st and Dom was amazing. He lives and breathes his tours, very very fun and interesting. Cannot wait to try Dumbo and Brooklyn. This is the tour to take !

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

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
