Jeff is friendly and very knowledgeable. I definitely learned a lot more about Brooklyn after this tour and I will come back again more often to visit.

Evelyn and I enjoyed our walking tour with Jeffrey Stirewalt immensely. Jeffrey was articulate, extremely knowledgeable, and charming. In turn amusing and serious, he brought the history and culture of Williamsburg to life: from the early Dutch settlers, the first attempts at English settlements, the influx of new residents via the "new" Williamsburg bridge, the growth and decline of beer brewIng, Tammany, Mae West, and full circle to the current renaissance of micro breweries and art and culture, including today's "hipsters". Plus great, unique shopping! A great tour by a gifted raconteur! We highly recommend Jeffrey's tour!
