We had a great time on our Red Hook tour. Learned so much about the history of the area and it was such a treat to connect with the local businesses and manufacturers in the area. Highly recommend!

We took the Williamsburg tour with Dom, and it was a wonderful experience. He's very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and has made many connections with local artisans and shop owners that resulted in special treatment wherever we went. The tour was a great mix of history, architecture, culture, and food. Dom welcomes questions and when he didn't know the answer to one of ours, he emailed us later that night with the information - talk about dedication! As a New Jersey native living in the suburbs, I've become a big Manhattan fan over the years and am just now beginning to learn more about Brooklyn - what a great way to get an inside view! I plan on joining Dom on more of his tours and may just work my way through all four!

Dom is a native Brooklynite so has a bond with the borough scarcely seen in tour guides! He is extremely knowledgeable and versed in the history of Brooklyn and can tackle almost any question you throw his way! He is constantly changing and improving his tours to accommodate the array of customers that take his tour! Truly a Brooklyn Aficionado Dom not only met but exceeded my expectations. I took the Williamsburg tour. I will not give give away what we do on the tour because I'm pretty sure Dom likes the element of surprise...he will not let you down. I came on the tour expecting a long, boring walk through the streets of WIlliamsburg but Dom proved to have many tricks up his sleeve! I give him a 5 star rating and encourage anyone who is interested in the area to take the tour!

I live in Brooklyn, but the borough is so big, and has so much history, that there is always more to learn. I did the Red Hook tour, and the port history we saw and talked about gave me a new perspective on the city. We also got access to many places that are normally closed to the public, as well as candid talks with local entrepreneurs.

Dom is a fun guy, and great tour leader.
