“Loved the tour of DUMBO”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Dom Gervasi was a great guide, very knowledgeable and passionate about his 'neck of the woods'.
The DUMBO tour was a great way of seeing an area that we would not have normally seen while visiting NYC.
We would definitely recommend Dom and his Made in Brooklyn tours. We are sorry we didn't have enough time to do the other tours that he runs.

“NYC Off the Beaten Path”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014

My favorite thing to do when I travel is to get off the well-trodden tourist path. Made in Brooklyn Tours allows you to do just that in New York City. And what better way than with a native who knows many hidden secrets.

Dom is born and bred in Brooklyn, and through his tours you will get a glimpse of a part of the city that most tourists never see. I have lived in New York City for more than 20 years and I can tell you I've learned many a new thing.

Truly fun, informative and highly enjoyable!

“Made in Brooklyn-DUMBO tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

They say Brooklyn is the coolest place on the planet. Dom Gervasi is the perfect guide to rep five of the neighborhoods of Brooklyn ( including DUMBO) as he is a native and passionate about sharing his knowledge of the borough.

With visual aids, Dom takes you on a historical tour of the neighborhood, the events that shaped the hood, and the national brands that had their origins in Brooklyn. He then brings you up to date on the rebirth of the area.He is very familiar with the artisans and entrepreneurs in the 30 block neighborhood. And he guides you to places that offer two of my favorite foods- coffee and dark chocolate.


I definitely will be signing up to go on other tours with Dom as he is a wonderful and fun guide.

“highly recommend any of the tours offered by "Made in Brooklyn Tours"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

DUMBO - this was my third tour with Dom Gervasi and again, it was a unique, enjoyable and very interesting experience. Meeting all the amazing people and discovering the small and large companies they strive to start and/or keep running, is impressivbe. It is a joy to see how dedicated people are to contribute to keep and make Brooklyn the wonderful place it was and is. Dom's enthusiasm for and knowledge of his home turf is inspiring. He is friendly, enormously generous and has a wonderful rapport with the people of the places one gets to visit on his tours. Dom's humorous way to convey the history of Brooklyn make the tour not just informative but truly enjoyable. I do hope that many more visitors will be inspirred to make their way to Brooklyn and take one or the other "Made in Brooklyn Tour" Thank you Dom for all your efforts and insights. Best of luck for the future!

“Something different and interesting in New York.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

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 introduced us to merchants and businesses along the way. We really got a good feel for the neighborhood and it's people. At the end, Dom escorted us to the entrance to the Brooklyn Bridge where we walked across to Manhattan taking in the magnificent views of the Manhattan skyline. Don't miss taking a tour in Brooklyn with Dom!
