Honestly, the best part of my trip. This was absolutely amazing, such a unique, exciting and must-do experience for any food lover or culture lover - Dave is such a great guy, we instantly bonded with him like an old friend and he just took us to the BEST places, all personalised for us. He knew I liked pizza and... More

Today we spent four and a half hours with Dave driving us around Brooklyn to taste some of the best food we have ever eaten. We made about 9 different stops and tried everything from hot dogs to pizza, sandwiches to cheesecake. Not only was the food mouth-watering but Dave was informative and the business owners/staff that we did get... More

Hi we had a great day with Dave last week. We only live about 1 1/2 from NYC, and I am in the city one a month for work. I know Manhattan well but I would have never ventured out to Brooklyn, other than Williamsburg with two girl friends. We are total foodies and my husband has owned an Italian... More

If you're a foodie (like me) and a lover of New York (like me), there aren't many better ways to get a bit more New York into your blood than on a Fat Dave tour. Dave's Tour was recommended to me by a close friend with similar interests in food and travel. As I was travelling alone I booked along... More

We toured with Dave and 4 other lovely guys from the UK on Monday 6th Oct. The total time spent out and about was 4.5 hours and both my partner and I agree it proved good value for money, and is a fantastic way to see the city. We visited Rockwood, Coney Island and Brooklyn, sampling some fantastic food along... More

Had a fantastic afternoon out with Dave and Sweetie ( the taxi ) with her querky ways. We went to Brooklyn and was taken to some amazing places to taste the delights and old favourites of some amazing diners and take-outs. Dave is an absolute gem of a find and would I not hesitate to go on this tour again... More

Dave is awesome, no showing off that he was a big shot when we entered each restaurant yet all the restaurant staff clearly liked and welcomed him. We ate at 6 or so really interesting places in Brooklyn and Queen's, out of the way places that we never would have found as tourists. Dave was very knowledgable about NYC and... More

Dave gave us a little tour around Brooklyn on Monday and it was amazing. We were initially a bit hesitant to go by ourselves since we were looking for another couple or threesome to book with us hence making it a bit cheaper and we could go for longer. Well apparently a few booked and then backed out, but it... More

Dave's easygoing nature made the tour seem less like a tour and more like having a friend drive us around the more far-flung regions of NYC - including Red Hook in Brooklyn and Rockaway Beach in Queens. These are places tourists wouldn't be able to cover on their own within a short duration. Not only was the food plentiful and... More

The food was excellent, and quite plentiful, but what made this tour worth it was Dave himself. His knowledge of the NY food scene, his great personality and enthusiasm were amazing. We look forward to taking another one of his tours when we return next year. Note, try to book well in advance, as Dave is a popular guy!
