Took the outer borough tour and had a blast tasting all types of food. Dave knows the history of the restaurants, the food and the city itself. Such a cool guy and a great tour guide. Lots of laughs and great fun. Money well spent!!

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.
