We've had the pleasure of touring with Dave twice now! The first time was with my brother's and mom for her 70th birthday. Dave accommodated all our requests, was funny AF, and so passionate about food and making sure we had a amazing time. Above and beyond! We love how much the man loves to eat and was able to track down the dopest hole in the walls. The second tour was a private tour a couple months back with my wife. Totally catered the whole tour to my specific food requests. He also gave us amazing suggestions around our neighborhood we were staying. My belly misses Dave. See you next time in NYC my food loving friend.

I first met Dave in 2007 after reading a review here on trip advisor and have come back just about every Christmas since. I think I am up to 8 tours total now! I never come to NYC without seeing Dave on my first day in the city, and I NEVER come to NYC without going on his tour. I would honestly rather not come to the city unless I do a food tour with Dave. One might ask " Dont you get sick of it?" NOPE and sometimes I ask Dave to take me back to some of the places we went to on tour #1 Jay and Lloyds for the best corned beef , Defonte's for the pure snarkiness of the staff, not to mention the sandwiches, Levian bakery for the best chocolate chip cookies ever and......well I will stop there so I dont ruin it for you! JUST GO and dont think twice about it! Dave is also a wiz at local history so you are not just getting a food tour, you are learning about the Big Apple as well! There is a reason he has such great reviews!

Let me get the elephant out of the room, the cost. The tour is a little more expensive than some, but the experience, length and food was worth it. Dave made us feel like friends. He kept the conversation flowing and was knowledgable about all nyc areas. He took us to some great spots and we had a million dollar sunset view of Manhattan. The food: he couldn't have picked better for us. Everything was delicous. We did a Brooklyn tour. We took a van instead of the cab, but weren't disappointed at all. It was cold so I think the van would have been more comfortable. I give this tour the highest rating. Would definately hire Dave again for another borough.

Fortuitously met Dave at a bar and he sold me on his tour the next day and wowwwwwwwww it was good. I was initially skeptical that 500 odd people could rate him as 'excellent' but I see why - it was an amazing day out. Super knowledgeable, smart and a good chap he was a good host. Each and every of the 7 stops we went to was amazing in its own way - not hipster or trendy spots but places that had existed for 30/40 years and produced the good stuff day in day out. Couldn't recommend it more.

This would have to be one of the best tours we have done anywhere in the world. Dave is amazing. We did the Brooklyn borough tour in the original cab which set the scene. The places and food were truly original and amazing but Dave’s banter and knowledge were beyond anything we have experienced before and I would say we are experienced travellers. We travel to NY each year and will include a tour with Dave to each borough until we exhaust our options. Thoroughly recommended
