We were so glad we took the DUMBO tour with Dom. He walked us through the history of Brooklyn, with so many memorable stories. We were able to visit local businesses to hear their stories too. There was so much that I didn't know about Brooklyn. We stopped at a fantastic coffee shop and also had time to make purchases... More

Dom is a one-man band and a terrific resource as well as a great companion. He took us around DUMBO and provided a constant stream of fascinating insights, as well as free samples of spectacular local food items (ice cream, coffee, chocolate). He does five different tours in different parts of Brooklyn and we now aspire to do them all!... More

We had not been to Brooklyn before, apart from a return walk across the Bridge. The Dumbo Tour was an excellent way to learn about the Brooklyn river front and its history. Dom had a passion and knowledge for Brooklyn that made its history come alive. The group was small and this allowed for lots of discussion and questions. Nothing... More

Thank you Dom, for an informative and fun tour of DUMBO. Your tour was both fun and informative, and we really enjoyed meeting and visiting with some of the local shop owners and artisans. Your love of Brooklyn shines through with each explanation of the various historic buildings and sites in Brooklyn. This was our first trip to Brooklyn but... More

Thank you, Dom, for a beautiful afternoon. I had no idea what a jewel Red Hook was! Your knowledge of the area is outstanding and your "New York" energy, warmth and enthusiasm is wonderful. A great afternoon!

Thank you Dom. The tour was informative but unusual in that it gave an artisan view to Brooklyn. Thoroughly enjoyed it and the walk over Brooklyn bridge was special.

12 of us from the Culinary Guild of New England toured Bensonhurst with Dom on Sunday. Dom was filled with local knowledge & history and patient & considerate of the differing ages and walking abilities of those in the group. Dom gave us a wonderful tour of his neighborhood that was truly 'from the heart'!

I went on the DUMBO tour with out guide Dom. I didn't know what to expect on this tour but it really surprised me. Dom has so much knowledge about the area and takes you on a history lesson about the icons all around. There are stops to local business to see their wares which is such a brilliant way... More

We absolutely loved it! The tour was funny, entertaining and interesting. We learned a lot but yet thanks to Dom it was never just facts and figures. We met interesting manufacturers who told their story and showed their work. Spending the whole day with Dom was a perfect start for our stay in NYC.
