My wife, daughter and I did the tour of Brooklyn and Queens with Dave earlier this month. We had a fantastic day and cannot recommend the trip highly enough. Whilst the food is incredible it is just part of the experience. Dave provides a running commentary that is a great mix of culinary detail, history, politics and sociology. We loved... More

We had had to cancel our initial booking with FFD last year so were thrilled to be able to finally climb into the cab and get underway this year. We had amazing food, met truly interesting people and best of all had a whole day of interesting political, social, historical and cultural discourse from Dave! We headed from one end... More

This was the highlight of our week in New York, Dave was knowledgeable about all things To do with New York and food. He kept us entertained in the car as we drive between fantastic eating establishments. As a family with 2 teenagers we all had a great time and we can't agree what our favourite food stop was because... More

If you want to experience NewYork City from cannoli to pastrami then Dave is the only guy to call. His knowledge of the culture and history of each of the areas we visited was amazing. We sampled 13 different foods, each one more amazing than the next. Dave was very flexible in the agenda to make certain we sampled all... More

Hands down, this was the best 5 hours of our 2 weeks in NYC. Dave was fantastic, from the minute we made contact 6 months ago, all the way through, and even contacted us after the tour to give us a few ideas of other places we might want to eat at while we were in town. Fantastic. Dave's passion... More

WOW! This was a highlight of our trip to NYC! Our family of 4, (2 children aged 11 and 16) went on a food tour with Dave. Dave kindly took the time to find out if we had anything specific in mind that we wanted to try while in NYC, to see if he could accommodate it as part of... More

Dave did it again! I went on a tour with Dave years ago with my cousins. We concentrated on Italian places that time and had a great time. My poor husband, back in California, heard all about it and felt very left out. On June 12th, he finally got his turn. It was quite hot then and Dave asked the... More

We went on a northern Brooklyn, Long Island City, City Island, South Bronx and Harlem food tour a couple of days ago and it was as wonderful as we anticipated. My husband and I live in NYC and this is our second tour with Dave (as per my husband's birthday requests). Once again, Dave introduced us to places we never... More

My wife and I joined 3 others (strangers at first, friends at the end) for a driving tour. We wanted to get off Manhattan, and boy did we ever! Started off with a little taste of genuine NYC meat (lower Manhattan), before heading off on the best tour of anywhere I've been in a long, long time. The format was... More
