I have a theory. Dave is not called Famous Fat Dave so much because he is incredibly famous, but because when you go on a tour with him, YOU feel famous. Being driven around in his amazingly spacious Checker Cab is such a sight on...More

It depends on if you do the riding tour, or the walking tour. The riding tour is $US300 per person for the day. If you walk, then the price drops in half to $US150 per person. Dave pays for all the food. Worth every penny.
