It's really hard to put down in words how good Dave and his tour was. My wife and I have travelled all over the world but both agree this tour was head and shoulders above all others. We boomed a 4 hour food tour and...More

Had a wonderful day with Dave in the checkered cab touring across Brooklyn. Visiting places the average tourist would simply never see. Whilst Dave advised early on that the four letter “F” word is not acceptable by the end of the day you certainly are...More

We’ve told all of our friends who visit NYC they HAVE to do a tour with Dave. Our first tour was the outer borough tour in the checker cab. This time, we did the walking tour. Great way to get your 10,0000+ steps in. So...More

Dave took my mom, aunt and 14 year old son on a whirlwind Italian focused tour of Brooklyn in the Checker cab. Not Williamsburg, but the heart of Brooklyn — the places you never go but should. We started at Defonte’s with a sandwich that...More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
