My friend and I decided to take a day off from work. While we're local to the NYC area, we wanted to explore Red Hook, an area of Brooklyn that wasn't well known to us. A quick search pointed to Dom's "Made in Brooklyn Tours." Dom is enthusiastic, native to Brooklyn, and a virtual fountain of knowledge! He is well-known... More

Dom. Tons of amazing and interesting info is shared by Dom. We saw and learned about DUMBO in away that that no other tour we've taken on vacations has done. The pride Dom has in his home town is intoxicating. Well done.

This area of Brooklyn has a wonderful history and a very bright future. Gowanus was an industrial area of Brooklyn with access to the canal. Now that the canal has been brought into focus and granted the super fund of cleaning up this will be an area to watch. Still has the feel of old New York with many changes... More

I booked this tour on the last day of our trip to NYC, we'd been staying in Manhattan and I thought it would be a good way to see some of Brooklyn. It was fantastic, and I was so disappointed I hadn't booked it earlier so we could have done another one! Dom is friendly and a great story-teller. The... More

First I took the DUMBO tour and then Bensonhurst. I really enjoyed both tours. While the tours are different, on both tours Dom provided lots of information about the neighborhood including its history and transition over the years. Clearly Dom brings a lot of passion to Made in Brooklyn tours--he's from Brooklyn and enjoys sharing his knowledge with visitors. The... More

This tour is a little bit unique more than we expected. It is included to visit several shops/persons that are working/(actively) involved in Dumbo area, which we felt very interesting. The tour guide Dom was very kind and abundant knowledge about Brookln. Thank you Dom.

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...
