My wife and I booked a 3 hour walking tour with Dave, and it was fantastic fun! We had Dave to ourselves, as he wasn't able to find other people to walk with us, which meant we had our NYC local expert all to ourselves. Dave was a very gracious and energetic host, and despite our being late by 15... More

I had a couple of free days in NYC and took the walking three-hour tour in lower Manhattan with Dave. Had a great time exploring the different tastes and smells of this vivid and diverse part of the city. Dave is curious, knowledgeable and passionate not only about NYC food but also about its architecture, inner politics and culture in... More

Nobody can beat fat Dave! My family and I spent a great day exploring Brooklyn with Dave in his white checker cab. Amazing food at places we would never have found on our own, made all the more enjoyable by Dave's knowledge of NYC. We will be sure to use him again next time we visit!

From the friendly animated Dave to the introduction of local delicacies this trip was one of the highlights of our stay in New York. Being all real foodies we were not disappointed with the range of food that we were introduced too and only wished we had packed extra stomachs for the trip. Great Guy, Great Day, Great Memories.

My brother and I visited NYC recently and were fortunate to be able to schedule a few hour tour with Dave and we sure are glad we did. The lobster roll from luke's and several other of Dave's choices were awesome. He's the right guy for this job. He took great care of us. He knows the city well and... More

Dave took 6 of us on a whirlwind tour of Brooklyn, stopping at the most awesome places to eat. Along the way, he regaled us on NYC arcania (like what makes a brownstone a brownstone), and, of course, political discourse - just like any self-respecting cabbie would. I am especially grateful that Dave: 1. Accommodated our schedule 2. Paced the... More

What a lovely guy Dave is. We were picked up in Dave's Checker cab, which is fantastic. We were presented immediately with some garlic salami to nibble on, which was great, then just spent the day eating amazing food and meeting amazing people. We all had a fantastic time, and all agreed, that it was the highlight of our NY... More
