Our guide helped make this a really great tour. She was very personable and informative as well as full of energy and interest. My wife and I enjoyed seeing a different section of London and going to different restaurants and shops.
This was one of the greatest tours we've ever taken. Our guide, Emily Rose, was really great. She was fun and very interesting. All of our group kept raving about our experience with her. We wished she could join us for the rest of our trip. That is how much we enjoyed her great personality. We easily felt her part of our family trip!!
The food was great and certainly plenty. It was a great variety from really good restaurants. We even went back to 2 of the restaurants to enjoy the food again. Everyone LOVED the bread and butter pudding!!
Had a super time on this tour Flic our guide was a lot of fun with her great knowledge of the area and food. We tasted LOTS of different food and even though it was a very cold day we were able to pop into the restaurants and warm up. Highly recommend this tour!! The four hours went zooming by.
My sister and I decided to try a food tour our last day in London and it was well worth it. Our guide Flic was amazing! She not only introduced us to some amazing British cuisine, she shared the rich history about the East London neighborhoods as went went to each stop. She was absolutely delightful and a lot of fun!!
