Great day out - informative, hilarious, historical, delicious, slightly crazy ... Do yourself a favour. And that's "favour" with a "u" because we're from Australia. Had a great time - thanks Dave!!

My wife and I used to live in the NYC area a while back, so we're familiar with the area. Dave customized our tour so that we could experience areas of the city we've never been to. The food stops were all excellent and during the drive Dave was informative and entertaining. Our kids (age 11 and 13) loved the... More

A friend of mine had talked this trip up to me before coming to the States. There was therefore high expectations and Dave more than delivered. My girlfriend and I went on a tour with Dave on 2nd July 2014 and had an amazing experience. Our advice would be to do this tour early on in your trip. Dave is... More

I couldnt think of anything better to do on a miserable rainy day in New York. Being driven from door to door, of the cities hidden gems. Places a regular tourist wouldn't go. Eating food that was so good, so delicious that it defied logic. Would i recommend Famous Dave? in a heart beat. Super knowledgeable about more than just... More

We visited New York for my wife's 40th birthday and she decided she wanted to try a different tour getting us away from the usual tourist traps and after some investigating on the internet we decided Fat Dave's tour looked like a good one to go for, and we certainly weren't wrong. This man is absolutely amazing, he felt like... More
