The Nice Guy Story

"I make three guarantees: You will leave full, learn something, and have fun." - Dante Mercadante

About Nice Guy Walking Food Tours

Lifelong New Yorker, born and raised in Yonkers, Nice Guy Food Tours’ CEO (Chief Eating Officer), Dante Mercadante, became a licensed NYC Sightseeing Guide in 2012. Utilizing his other backgrounds like stand-up comedy and acting alongside this license, Dante found his calling in 2014 with the birth of Nice Guy Tours.

“Prior to having this job, when people would say ‘I really love my job’, I didn’t believe them or think it was possible. Now, I look forward to work every day. I get great joy out of guiding locals and out-of-towners alike through the streets of NYC.”

“I never really knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. I’ve always loved trying new food. All happy events in my life revolve around food, and now my job is no exception. As your leader and trusted servant, I will always be out there making sure your stomach dances while we walk and talk.”
