I like to think I'm a pretty thrifty person and the price of FFD's tour originally made me a bit worried that I would regret the expenditure since I can use google maps and yelp to find good places myself. But, I figured at least I could take friends wherever he showed us in the future and it could be... More

Dave is a really lovely fella and was informative and entertaining from the start. With his excellent knowledge of NYC and his choice of food outlets was amazing. He even took us to Cony Island as he knew I wanted to go there. Hot dogs pizza pastrami and beef sandwiches dunked in gravy with lots of other food to. A... More

We did this tour for my Dad's 80th birthday and I would have to say it was the highlight of his trip to New York. Dave picked up 5 of us in Greenwich Village and we spent the afternoon with him driving around Brooklyn & Queens eating amazing food and learning so much about the places we visited and the... More

My husband has been wanting to do this tour but I was always afraid it would be too much food and he is hard to book with (2nd time I've tried). I thankfully was in the waiting list and he had a cancellation, so we got to do a 4 hour tour. This is our 10th year to come in... More

Dave was an extremely knowledgeable and attentive guide and certainly made this tour memorable. We had a great variety of foods and more than enough to eat. We also went to places that we would never have gone ourselves and the tour was a great mix of experiencing great food and sightseeing areas away from Manhattan.This tour is highly recommended...

Our group of (5) people met Dave at a specified location in Greenwich Village at 11:00 AM. He arrived with hot chocolate for everyone since it was a chilly day and he knew we would be cold waiting outside for him. He gave us an update about our tour. There was a couple from Northern California and a young couple... More

A Must do in NYC --- Dave definitely delivered on delicious and unique food options that we never would've known about, nor discovered on our own. We did 2 back-to-back tours the Monday and Tuesday of Thanksgiving week in an attempt to hit all the boroughs and their offerings. This trip was for my son's 21st birthday, and he's a... More

Thank you again, Dave, for one of our favorite activities to do in NYC. This was our second booking with you. The first booking we went to Brooklyn and the experience was top notch. This time we did Harlem and the Bronx. It was super! We had nine tastings, each unique and typical of the area we visited. We did... More

Dave’s food tour was defiantly a highlight of my trip to America! I was recommended Dave’s tour through a friend of a friend and initially while I thought that it was too expensive for me, I decided to try it out considering the reviews on tripadvisor are amazing and I wanted to see more of New York than just Manhattan....
