Right from the early contact with Dave this tour felt good. We had to change dates and times and localities to visit and Dave was extremely flexible and accommodating. The tour of Harlem & the Bronx started with Dave picking up us from our accomodation and giving us a delicious peanut paste and chocolate cookie. This tour is so much... More

Dave is so knowledgeable about the city and neighborhoods. I could have listened to him talk all day. He had so much great information about the how and why of the history of the neighborhoods. Fascinating! If I were to say the food was good, it would be such a horrible disservice. The food was simple and flavorful. We ate... More

We really were expecting alot from our day with Dave due to the reviews on Tripadvisor---exceeded our expectaions. It is not just a food tour outside the typical tourist spots--it is a history of the city, neighborhoods, people and politics of the city. My wife and our 2 boys(25 and17) had an amazing time. We stayed in Times Square--the tour... More

Took the tour last week while in New York. Chose this tour as it looked interesting and different from the general tourist tours. Was not disappointed in any way. Got to take a wide view of New York and mixed with the locals. Dave was fascinating to listen to and seemed to have a really broad knowledge of the city.... More

This is more than just a food tour - It's an exploration of New York. We did Harlem & The Bronx and by the end of it we'd fallen in love all over again with Nee York. Dave takes you to hidden gems and introduces you to the people all the while you're being educated about New York and how... More

We had been anticipating this tour with Dave ever since we saw him on Anthony Bourdain. We were not disappointed! We were surprised how much more we experienced on top of the fabulous food. We saw so much of Brooklyn that we would otherwise have never experienced and Dave's commentary was fabulous. If you're looking to try some amazing food... More
