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

We did the tour of Brooklyn in the checker cab with Dave last Friday. All amazing - Dave, the food, the cab and Dave also has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the area. You get to see loads of places tourists would not usually get to....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
