My wife and I went on Famous Fat Dave's tour when we were in New York in May 2014 for her 30th birthday. We loved everything about it and would definitely recommend it to anyone going to New York. We did the Best of Brooklyn tour and got everything from pastrami and pickles, to Chinese dumplings and Mexican torta. This... More

I couldnt think of anything better to do on a miserable rainy day in New York. Being driven from door to door, of the cities hidden gems. Places a regular tourist wouldn't go. Eating food that was so good, so delicious that it defied logic. Would i recommend Famous Dave? in a heart beat. Super knowledgeable about more than just... More

We visited New York for my wife's 40th birthday and she decided she wanted to try a different tour getting us away from the usual tourist traps and after some investigating on the internet we decided Fat Dave's tour looked like a good one to go for, and we certainly weren't wrong. This man is absolutely amazing, he felt like... More

I stumbled across Famous Fat Dave's food tour here in trip advisor a few years ago, while looking for last minute ideas for a day in the city. Dave was booked up so we couldn't do it. With a little better planning we were able to go earlier today. It was awesome. Our tour, like most it sounds, was in... More

This was our third trip to New York and in 4 hours I saw and learnt more than my previous two trips combined! Dave's knowledge of not just NYC but the USA is amazing, it would be worth the tour just for his insight, but then there is the food! From a piece of pizza in Queens to hot dogs... More

After a great eating tour with Dave 3 years ago this was the first thing on our 'to do' list on our return to NYC. This time we headed for the Bronx and spent the afternoon discovering some hidden gems that we would not have found ourselves. Dave greeted us in his classic checkered taxi cab with some tasty cured... More

You cannot miss this tour if you really want to "taste" New York, not only classical Manhattan but also Bronx, Brooklyn and Harlem. Dave is able to tell you amazing stories about NY for 4 hours and you won't be bored! I recommend this tour also to Italians, it is in English but really comprehensible. Dave can even show you...
