Great background on New York and the history of Brooklyn! Enjoyed our time walking around Brooklyn Heights and how it became what it is today.
Great experience!

Thomas led my father and I on a very interesting, personal tour of Brooklyn Heights. He followed up after the tour on a random question we had (not specific to BH)! A good mix of relevant info about the area as it stands today and its historical context (not told in chronological order, which I appreciated). Highly recommend for people new to Brooklyn and interested in this neighborhood.
Great Experience

I booked a tour with Thomas the first week I moved to Brooklyn Heights to better get to know the area. He not only gave a great tour but was able to answer my questions about the area well. Highly recommend
