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... More

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... More

Excellent tour, Jacob is super-super knowledgable of Hasidism given his own personal background. I have been a few times in NY but never took such a tour and I can only recommend it!

I took this tour because I want to understand this enigmatic community on a deeper, more authentic level. Jacob is a skilled and personable facilitator and is the perfect person to connect visitors with the history of the Hasidic movement while providing insight on Hasids in present day NYC and beyond. As a student of religion (amateur!), I really didn't... More

We are very glad we took this walking tour. The guide, Jacob Gluck, seems to know everything about the various subjects that he touches upon during this three hour tour through the streets of Williamsburg. He possesses no mean didactic talents and we really hung on his lips. What impressed us most is the warmth and love with which Jacob... More
