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

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

If you want see greater New York and eat well in the process then you must do this! Dave is not only very knowledgeable on local delights but you also learn some great history along the way. My wife and I have since visited places he recommended and all have been on the money. Thanks so much Dave, we are... More
