On our trips to NYC, always concentrated on Manhattan.. We had a great tour with Dom to explore Brooklyn.. He is personable, easy going, and extremely knowledgable. I would definitely do another tour. Especially in warmer weather!

Thank you so much for the positive review - it means a lot! It was also great to learn about Montreal from you. When it's warmer, please come on another jaunt around my native Brooklyn! :) Yours truly, Dom Gervasi More

I took the Made in Williamsburg tour with Dom and it was an awesome experience. The group was small and Dom made us feel really welcomed into his neighbourhood. It was a well thought out tour in terms of historic and modern information and there were plenty of stops along the way to rest, sample some unique food or get... More

While my BFF and I had been to NYC many times, we'd never been to Brooklyn so I wanted a tour. I researched online and found this tour company and we hit the jackpot! Dom was born and raised in Brooklyn. Not only does he know his way around the DUMBO area and the intricacies of its history, he knows... More

I went last Saturday to a tour in Dumbo. Was Absolutely amazing. The tour guide DOM, gave us explanations about facts that I didn't know before.. and took us to places that I wouldn't have enjoyed them or see them by myself. We met a lot of local owners and shops.

Our group of friends has been visiting NYC for years and we wanted something a little different to do on this visit. Fortunately, our group's NYC leader found this walking tour and we could not have asked for a better experience! Not only did Dom take us to very exciting, smaller businesses in Brooklyn, but he also gave a brief,... More

Dom was amazing! His 3 hour tour of DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) showed us this Brooklyn gem up close and personal. His relationships with a number of artists and merchants gave us insights into this rejuvenated area that we could not have gotten any other way. Can't wait for a return trip to take his other tours. And... More

Dom really does take his job seriously. He is remarkably well informed & very solicitous when it came to the frailties of those of us on his DUMBO tour. The tour was not physically challenging it was us who were challenged! Regardless, I highly recommend him for his enthusiasm & professionalism. You will not be disappointed. He is a wealth... More

This is the second time we've been on a tour with Dom. He's a native of Brooklyn and he loves the place. The tours take you around a neighborhood and explain the history and architecture that make that neighborhood unique. The primary focus is on the artisans and their products. Most of the work products are high end and custom,... More
