Had the most wonderful experience on a tour of Gowanus with Dom. His knowledge of the area and the local history was spot on. He covered local art and artists, and gave me some great background information about the Gowanus Canal, and how it came to its current state from years of manufacturers polluting the waters. The good news is... More

Thank you Dom! You were a highlight of my boyfriend's Brooklyn birthday #52 adventure. We loved the Made in Bklyn stops, their stories and their delicious and fascinating wares. Cragles and pookies and crazy sorbet combos and nut cheese and the sketchbook art library- my what mind-expanding fun! Gorgeous architecture and graffiti for me to enjoy and plenty of terrific...

I'm from one of the biggest tourist towns on the East coast (Newport, RI) where I see all types offers for people to spend their hard earned money and I was completely satisfied and intrigued by the experience with Dom. Very professional and prepared.

I can’t say enough good things about our Made in Brooklyn experience. In fact, our Bensonhurst tour was SO GOOD that we immediately scheduled a Williamsburg tour two days later. If you love incredible food then you must do the Bensonhurst tour. We have traveled extensively throughout the world (including Italy), and can say without question that everything we tasted...

Dom has made the perfect 21st century tour. He combines the old with the new to discuss Brooklyn's history, architecture, the companies that grew from Brooklyn and the business planting their seeds in the current "maker movement". Whether you know nothing about Brooklyn or if you've lived here for 50 years (we had both types on ours) this is the... More

Dom led a fantastic tour for an alumni group ranging all ages. He made NYC new and fascinating for a bunch of New Yorkers. Such a unique tour, for locals and visitors alike. Having been on theses sorts of tours around the world, Dom ranks among the best.

Dom, a Brooklyn-native, took my brother, my father and me on a topnotch, one-of-a-kind look at the neighborhood of Red Hook and its local artisans and merchants. We popped into a winery, a distillery, a metal-working shop, a printing press, a pie store, and more. At each location Dom has fostered personal relationships with the artists and owners, all of...

As one who has been on tours in virtually every continent, I have to say that Don's Made in Brooklyn tour ranks as one of the best. Even though it was a cold December day, Don's home baked knowledge of Brooklyn and his enthusiasm for what he does, made it a great day for myself and my family. The inclusion... More

This is our second tour with Dom, and we intend to go on more. We visit Brooklyn every year because our daughter and her husband live here. Last year we went on the Red Hook tour and this year the Williamsburg tour. Both were very different because of the weather (VERY cold and super windy in Red Hook and beautiful... More

We joined Dom on the Dumbo tour on a VERY cold sunny afternoon. However, with his local knowledge of the area we forgot about the cold early on. Whether we were either the only ones that booked on that day, or the only ones that turned up (due to it being -3 degrees Celsius) we had a very personable and... More
