This was a great way to see some different parts of NY, off the island of Manhattan. Dave knows a lot of stuff, you can ask him anything. Very entertaining and lot's of fun - and of course the food was great!

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.
