Dave is brilliant! We took a 3.5 hour walking tour in Lower Manhattan and discovered some hidden gems, serving amazing food and drink. On top of the food Dave provides a fascinating insight into the history of NYC - couldn't recommend him highly enough!

Famous Dave is a fantastic food tour in NYC. He took us to places we would’ve not tried without this tour. The food was great but the information about the areas we went.

Dave is the ideal food tour guide for NY! He shows you the hidden and no so hidden gems of the city. However, this tour is more than just food. It is the historical significance of the food, the culture and the story behind it....More
