We usually travel to New York once to twice a year for vacation. I can't believe we haven't taken Dave's tour sooner!! It was the best thing we did for the 7 days we were there. The food places were outstanding! Dave was so knowledgeable on everything Brooklyn, where we took our food tour. Could not recommend enough!! Thank you Dave!

Fantastic tour if you're after some great food you wouldn't normally find on your own. It's also an awesome tour to take if it's your first time in NYC as Dave takes you to some places nice and far away from the main tourist areas of Manhattan. Definately would recommend if you love food and want to get out and see more of New York.

Dave was an excellent tour and food guide and he knows just as much about NYC as he does his food... which is a lot!

The value of this tour goes up significantly if you are able to share/split the fare with another group or more people. 3-4 hours gets you heaps of food and stops.

We took our two boys ages 15 & 8 with Dave to Brooklyn for 4 hours, we ate, learned, ate, learned, and on & on. We saw areas of Brooklyn that we would of never knew existed and learned so much background about the food we were eating. Dave makes it so much more then just about the food. Manhattan Special @ Ferdinando's couldn't be beat!

My tour was in Brooklyn on a Friday.

Dave runs a really great tour, is a really great guy, and in addition to the great places he takes you to eat, he has a real knowledge and feel for the places he takes you. This is not just a food tour, but a tour through parts of New York as the locals see it rather than as a tourist.

The Checker Cab is really spacious and comfortable in the back.

If I'm ever in NYC again I will definitely go on the tour again.
