Dom Gervasi is enthusiastic, personable, and well prepared for the walking tours he conducts in interesting Brooklyn neighborhoods. My friend and I toured the Brooklyn waterfront neighborhood of DUMBO (down under the Manhattan Bridge overpass) with Dom today. We never realized how historic the area is. Not only did Dom tell us about the history of the neighborhood, he also... More

I've taken several Made In Brooklyn tours with Dom. As a Brooklyn native he is incredibly knowledgeable of the neighborhoods he brings you into, from their founding right up to today. He's extremely laid-back, friendly, and accommodating. As a photographer and a maker I've found his tours to be extremely useful in my own work. I look forward to taking... More

We (6 of us) had a private tour with Dom yesterday that included highlights from his DUMBO & Williamsburg tours. It was excellent & we got to visit many local places. We had been to brooklyn before & realised we hadn't seen a thing & knew nothing about its origins. Dom was friendly, super organised & left us with so... More

Not even rain & freezing wind could dampen our enjoyment of this tour. Dom's obvious love for his city was reflected in his knowledge of its history and his pride in the local entrepreneurs. The history of this area is fascinating and we were able to see how the area developed from early days until the present. It certainly was... More

This was a really nice afternoon! It was the debut Gowanus tour, but everything seemed to go smoothly. Gowanus is a funky and artistic neighborhood, and we got ton learn a good amount of its history with us. Dom picked several arty and yummy pioneering entrepreneurs for us to visit, and we felt welcome at every stop. He clearly enjoyed... More

What a great way to learn about Brooklyn whether you are a visitor, native, or new transplant! Dom did an excellent job at covering all aspects of the maker movement- the history, the changes the city underwent, the rebirth of craftsmanship. I only wish I could have made it to all his Made in Brooklyn tours of other neighborhoods during... More

An interesting and historical journey through the Brooklyn waterfront. Walking through DUMBO, Dom recreated the history of early Brooklyn and showed us how history was being reinvented by young (and not so young) craftsmen and entrepreneurs. We met and talked with many of the "maker movement" people and got their stories firsthand. As a former college business and management professor,... More

You'll be hard pushed to find a more informative, friendly or accommodating guide than Dom who shares his in-depth knowledge and enthusiasm of the Brooklyn neighbourhoods and the 'maker movement' on this enlightening tour. You'll cover a lot of ground, tour a number of businesses and meet the local owners combined with a detailed history of the area and what's... More

Me and my mom (we're both German) found this tour only accidentally, and it turned out to be one of the best days we had in NYC. The places that Dom picked were unique, fun and we would have never found them on our own! The tour was super informative yet entertaining and we didn't even have to get lunch... More
