Our party of seven were split over two 1/2 days tours with Dave in his delightful Checker cab. It was our first full day in New York, and the best way to be introduced to the real side of the city. Dave is full of info, history, details, anecdotes and humour, he is not opinionated, or full of himself. He knows a side of New York that even the intrepid traveller won't find. We were staying in Brooklyn, so opted for a tour of Harlem and the Bronx. Be it the Broccoli Rabe and garlic knots, the coal oven pizza, the hand-piped Cannoli, the pan-fried chicken, the BBQ pork ribs, or the Murder burger, all the food was great , the people friendly and real, the experience genuine and the feeling total safe. This is one great way to see a locals side of New York. Thanks Dave, and go the Yankees!
