Dave organised a personalised day tour for me of Manhattan. It was awesome, unscripted, authentic and got me thinking about what I eat, where I live and what I want to do. We started at the 24 hour doughnut pub and then headed to faiccos for prosciutto bread. I wish I had two stomachs so I could have eaten more... More

What a brilliant way to eat your way around New York. Started on a chilly January morning with Jacques Torres wicked chilli hot chocolate & Defonte's breakfast sandwich dipped in ham gravy, with Manhattan Special espresso soda (we must find some of that back home). Then on to Coney Island, for the original Nathanial's Famous Hot Dogs & Tom's Coney... More

My friend and I had a fantastic time with Fat Dave. We spent the best part of a day experiencing the amazing people and food of Brooklyn and Queens - would definitely recommend this tour. Thanks Dave :)

This was a present from our daughter so I can't speak to the value side of things :) but it was a wonderful experience and Dave was a great host and very knowledgeable. He took us to some very authentic little places all the while telling us about the history etc of the food/person. Truly memorable.

We took a five and half hour tour in mid December 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My wife and I shared Dave's mini van with a couple from Seattle and we had a fantastic time exploring the various foods of Brooklyn and Queens. Why was the tour so good? Simple, Dave is an amazing guide, - he's very knowledgeable... More

I tried to schedule this tour in 2013 but was unable to due to conflicting schedules. Tried again and had this tour in December 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Dave has great knowledge of New York itself and points out anything and everything during the rides from place to place. The places we visited were great and the food was... More

Our private tour in Dave's Checker Cab was brilliant! Life doesn't get much better than traveling around with Dave in his Checker Cab and tasting the most delicious foods ever. Dave does a brilliant job of customizing the tours for his clients. At the start of our tour we discussed our food likes and dislikes and also what areas of... More

We had a great time on the tour with Dave. The food was delicious and Dave went out of his way to accommodate our family. We were a total of 6 and we had a blast. He even drove us back to our hotel and made it a blast for our kids. Thanks again Dave.

My daughter (21) and myself spent a great day with Dave exploring the fabulous metropolis of New York. We found the Food Tour on trip advisor and as we had seen all the main attractions on previous visits we decided to book a trip with Dave. My oh My! he met us with a small package of smoked sausage from... More

We almost didn't book this tour as we saw other food tours at a cheaper price, but after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and checking out Dave's website we were sold! We booked a tour for our family of four and didn't look back. Dave answered emails efficiently and asked what we wanted to see/eat. We requested pizza and Coney... More
