My parents were in town, and Rick showed them the area better than I ever could. I learned new things too! His knowledge of the area is impressive, even when you ask him a question about something that is not part of the tour. Highly recommended.

Just ready to leave hotel and get a call, "Sorry tour is off"..."How about tomorrow?". We were tourist on a schedule so the following day would not work. I know things happen but I would have expected an organisation to be more reliable and have back up plans for unforeseen situations and not leave customers out to dry..... I will... More

Also on my website I have over 300 reviews that are all positive.I am a one man operation and this situation was unexpected and... More

This tour was recommended to us by a friend. I visited Brooklyn on a girls outing this week and took the tour with Rick from A Tour Grows in Brooklyn. Not sure he knows how talented he is with his "Gift-of-Gab" but made the walking tour of Park Slope memorable. He is very knowledgable about the area and brings a... More

I want to echo what others have said. This is a superb introduction to Brooklyn. Rick is smart, funny, and shares his great stories. I also want to add that he is supremely accommodating. We had booked this several months ago, and had to cancel. Even though the website where we had purchased tickets specified no refunds, I sent Rick... More

I wanted to explore Brooklyn for a long time, but each trip to NYC kept me in Manhattan. Wow, am I glad I finally did, and with a guided tour. Rick (our tour guide) was awesome. He absolutely loves, and is loved, in his neighborhood. He was extremely knowledgeable about everything from architecture to occupants. It was absolutely worth the... More

A friend and I decided to explore Brooklyn and found this tour online. It was very entertaining and informative, and a great introduction to Brooklyn. Rick was incredibly knowledgable and took the time to answer our many questions. As much as he knew about the history of the area, the stories of his personal experiences were even better!

We really enjoyed our tour with Rick. He is friendly and knowledgeable, and great fun to walk around Brooklyn with. We liked the way he mixed popular culture, personal experiences of growing up in Brooklyn, and historical fact. He has a great memory and a great spiel. By the end of the tour we had a real appreciation for brownstone... More

This tour is exactly what you want from a tour of Brooklyn. Rick is the perfect guide. He is a Brooklynite through and through, and not only has a passion for his city, but also history in general. He is a wealth of information, and leaves you wanting to explore Brooklyn even more. I would do this tour again and... More

I've taken this tour twice now. Having just moved here, I thought it would give me a few good stories about the neighborhood. Instead I got a fascinating three hour tour that covers much of Brooklyn history, architecture, and general points of interest, with a slew of great anecdotes and off hand stories. Rick is a perfect tour guide. He... More
