I went on a food tour with 5 friends, and it was awesome. The checker cab is a throwback that really catches everyone's attention, and it's also super comfy even with 6 people total in the car. Dave took us to the spots that you wouldn't normally know to go to, and he knew the employees which made it fun.... More

Being from Boston, I'm not usually a fan of anything from New York. So when I heard I was going a food tour, I thought it would have nothing on Boston. We have the North End, Quincy Market, and of course the Red Sox. Ok, back to food. I have to say that the food tour was like nothing I've... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of taking a four hour tour with Dave two weeks ago. It was hands down one of the travel experiences I’ve ever had. Dave picked us up in his Checker and got to business right away while teaching us about the history of the city at the same time. Seriously, this guy knows... More

We had a blast! 2 weeks later, we are still talking about it. In fact, my mother wants to know when we are going to do it again. Dave's knowledge of NY was incredible, certainly more than we had ever expected. It made the trip all that much more enjoyable. Although all of the stops were wonderful, I would highly... More

Dave was great! We did a four hour tour in Brooklyn. We had Hispanic, Jewish, Italian, seafood, and a few others at about 10 places. Dave's local knowledge was incredible. His history of the places and towns was great too. Food was outstanding! We will certainly do the tour again as NYC has so much to offer with ethnic and... More

My wife arranged this as a birthday present for me. We had a great time! Dave knows everything and everybody. He took us to ten places all around Brooklyn. We ate some of the best things I've ever tasted, all different and all off the beaten track. Places I would never have gone to and food I've never tasted before.... More

We were 5 Australians inclluding 1 teenager. T'he trip exceded our expectations. Dave showed us areas of t'he Bronx you would not normally see. T'he murderburger must not be missed. Dave took time to evaluate our group and took us to appropiate places. We all felt it was a great experience

We set Dave on a mission to show us some of NYC outside of midtown -- it seems when we go to NY, we never get out of the tourist zone -- and he really came through. We had a nonstop history and neighborhood discussion as we drove through a little on the lower East Side before departing for Brooklyn... More

I read about Famous Fat Dave on trip advisor and decided that this was something we definately had to during our short trip to NY - and it was the right choice! We had such a great afternoon driving round Brooklyn eating DELICIOUS food and hearing all about the history and other interesting bits and pieces from the very knowledgable... More
