I grew up in this town, but I wanted my girlfriend to see this town and this lifestyle, Jacob was very thorough and explained the history of this town, also a lot of very interesting facts on the origin of some of the older mansions, and the kugel wasn't half bad either, Thank you Jacob

For anyone interested in learning about the insulated, isolated culture of the Satmars and other ultra Orthodox Jewish sects, this is THE tour! Jacob is extremely knowledgeable and insightful about these insular, isolated groups. He lived the life before eventually leaving to live as a mainstream American. A fascinating, off-the-beaten-track tour of another side of Brooklyn/NYC. Personally, I found the whole thing fascinating; I felt as if I had stepped back in time and was walking around an early-mid 20th century European shtetl. Jacob is a fantastic guide- smart, funny, and willing to answer our many probing questions! He is a true scholar of life both inside and outside these communities.

Jacob is incredibly knowledgable, articulate and interesting. The tour lasted 3 hours, circled through Williamsburg and visited restaurants, bookstores and food shops. Jacob discussed the history, culture and current status of Hasidic culture. As a former member of the Hasidic world, he knows the world and speaks openly and authoritatively about the area and culture. Highly recommended!!!! Like entering another country with a guide who speaks the language.
