We joined Dom for the Made in Red Hook tour on a very chilly, windy, overcast Saturday afternoon. Dom made the day shine! He showed us a Red Hook we never would have seen on our own-- warehouse locations that appear quiet but are really humming with entrepreneurial productivity. I don't want to spoil the tour by giving away the... More

Bensonhurst is my second tour with Dom (Williamsburg was first) and I enjoyed this tour just as much! Dom grew up in Bensonhurst and lives there now, so he is well known in the neighborhood and is often greeted with "Hey, Dom!" at each stop. This tour includes the history and culture of Bensonhurst over the last two centuries or... More

We toured Bensonhurst and had a great time! Learned a lot and ate EXCELLENT food. We were welcomed every where we went with historical knowledge, interesting facts, and absolutely delicious panini, heroes, ravioli and more. If you go, bring a backpack or wagon for all the delicious things you will want to bring home! Dom was a great guide and... More

Dom is a perfect guide, and the tour of Bensonhurst was a really good mix of interesting history, authentic atmosphere, and tastings of really nice Italian food. Recommended!

We booked the 'Dumbo' tour with Dom Gervasi following a friend's recommendation, and i'm so glad we did. It was incredible! Dom is sooooo knowledgable and friendly. I went with 3 other friends from Australia, and the history is mind boggling. Dom made it extremely informative, but also fun. It's such an exciting part of New York we wouldn't have... More

My wife and I took the "Made in Williamsburg" tour yesterday with Dom and it was fascinating and informative and fun. His comprehensive knowledge of the history of Brooklyn and his enthusiasm (as a proud son of Brooklyn) are infectious and make for a wonderful afternoon.

Dom gave us a great tour and really new his stuff. Clearly a lot of work went into this and he has a passion for this place which is contagious. He went out of his way to help all of us out where he could. Will recommend this to all my friends who come to New York!

We booked the "Dumbo" tour with Dom Gervasi based on previous reviews from Trip Advisors. We were absolutely pleased with the wealth of information Dom had to share with us. He is one of the most pleasant, knowledgeable, and gracious tour guides we have ever had. We definitely recommend his tours to anyone visiting the Big Apple and we plan... More

My group of five friends was fortunate to have Dom as our guide in the Dumbo area of Brooklyn. We were so impressed, we returned the next day for a tour of Williamsburg. His knowledge of Brooklyn history is very impressive, as he details how the areas developed and the changes that have taken place.... and are still taking place... More
