Excellent tour, excellent guide and very knowledgeable of the local market. Though I would have preferred tasting of more foods.

This was a wonderful experience -- even on a rainy day in May 2018! We were introduced to Borough Market near London Bridge, Pickfords Wharf, the Mug House, and the surrounding South Bank area. It was a small group only 4 of us, so very personal attention from our guide not now recalling her name, but who was a delight, and we had plenty of opportunity to explore and taste on our own as well as a group. A great way to experience a part of London that we all know is there, but don't quite know how to access. If you wish to explore London not in a typical touristy way, book this foody, walking tour -- you'll feel like a local!

Food tours really get you to the heart of the city. WE concentrated in and around Borough Market. There were the actual growers of the food and the wholesalers. On the other side of this huge market were all those who prepared this very fresh food and served it to the customers. Our guide took us through the markets, we engaged with the purveyors and tasted good sized portions of 7 or 8 foods and beverages. All were excellent. The guide was very personable and familiar with the food servers and preparers. She knew the history of the area. Small group made it fun. Highly recommend his tour.

This was a great tour. My husband and I really enjoy the market and all the food. It was so helpful to have a tour guide to point out the best foods to try. From what I read on other reviews, our tour guide wasn't as informative about London history, but he still did a good job. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Took the afternoon tour and it turned out we were the only ones scheduled so it became a private tour. Our guide was Chris and he was great! We started the tour by crossing the street and within 2 minutes we were seated and great food was arriving at our table. There were a number of different dishes including fish and chips, scotch eggs, sticky toffee pudding, cheese plate, beer and cider and a donut for dessert. There was so much food I'm not sure I've remembered it all. We had a chance to spend time in the Borough Market and worked in some of the history of London as we walked around and Chris pointed out a number of sites that you may not see during a typical tour. We came hungry, we left full and Chris gets 5 stars from us for a great tour!

Great tour! My daughter and I really enjoyed sampling all the foods and learning about the area. Mat was a great guide and kept everyone entertained. I definitely recommend this tour for anyone who wants to do something other than the standard site seeing in London. I only give this tour four stars and not five because our scheduled tour guide never showed up and the company had to find a backup for our scheduled time. Unfortunately, half the attendees left and the rest of us waited an hour and half for a new guide. Thankfully we ended up with Mat, had a great time and finished the tour stuffed!

Be prepared to eat. This was so fun, we went back another day during our week in London. Take your camera as there are many beautiful food displays. You won't be disappointed.

I was a solo traveler but quickly became family with the tight group that experienced the sights, sounds and of course flavors that this tour had to offer. We arrived before our tour guide but again, everyone was soooooo wonderful. The meeting place was a bit tricky to find as it was my first stay in London but otherwise it was wonderful. I embarrassingly got lost in the borough market BUT the group came looking for me and did not leave as i said - FAMILY. The guide was phenomenal, friendly and was a quick thinker. She accommodated my requests as I didn't eat beef and i never felt like i missed anything. The stops were great, my belly was filled and it was money well spent. P.S. can anyone tell me where we stopped for that sticky fudgy pudding since leaving i have never stopped thinking about it lol

This was amazing! Our guide Sharlene was very knowledgeable about the Market, it's history, and where to find the best food. We were stuffed when we left!
