Incredible combination of humour, history, ghost busters facts, good banter and of course ... awesome food! Dave is an awesome dude to hang out with, and he pretty much tailored the tour around what we felt like eating. Took us to some great places that the average tourist probably wouldn't head to, little mom and pop stores in the middle... More

Dave's food tour is incredible and took us to some fantastic eateries you just wouldn't find without him. We let Dave choose where we ate, and just asked to sample lots of different types of food, which we did! There were so many highlights I'm not sure I can pick a favourite but Steve's Authentic Key Lime pie was the... More

Myself and two friends had a fantastic 5hrs with Dave - trying the very best Brooklyn had to offer across different cuisines and neighbourhoods. No exaggeration to say that we would never have found the hidden gems Dave showed us - it's one of the highlights of my round the world trip and I'd recommend it to anyone going to... More

This tour really is something special! Dave took us to places in Brooklyn we would never have gone, and gave us information on the areas/food places that were profound and very interesting, he enabled us to get a proper "feel" Brooklyn. Conversation with him was fun and relaxed, never a moment that was not comfortable- he is truly welcoming, sometimes... More

We joined another group yesterday to tour NYC eating and getting a little history and more eating. Wow! Dave took us to a bunch of little family run places where the food was simple and absolutely delicious. The Key Lime Pie in Brooklyn may be the best thing I've eaten in my life and I would never have found it... More

I found Dave's tour on trip advisor, and after reading the reviews was excited to try it out. I was fortunate enough to be able to get a last minute booking for two. We had a fantastic experience! Dave took us to several authentic NY eateries; the food was outstanding as was Dave's historical knowledge. I highly recommend the tour!... More

We went on a 3 hour tour with Dave in January and had an amazing time. Dave not only knows food but also just about everything else about the areas he takes you to. Dave was very keen to take us to places we had not been so we spent the time in Brooklyn sampling all different types of food... More

Dave's tour was brilliant and exactly what was promised. He took us to areas of Brooklyn we never would have found on our own and the food (plus Dave's extensive knowledge of the area and the people) made for a great day. Well worth the cost for a highly memorable day.

If you are in NY city then you must do this tour! It is quite simply the funniest tour I've ever been on. Dave is so friendly and hilarious but he is also so knowledgeable and welcoming. The food on the tour is just so amazing. I can't rate this tour enough, it's a great way to see the city... More
