What you’ll do

If you’re one of those people who think British food is boring, or terrible, please reconsider.

After a few hours with one of our local London hosts, we’re sure you’ll change your mind.

You’ll eat your way around central London, kicking off your adventure with a caffeine dose from one of the trendy cafes along the Thames, where you can indulge in the rich aroma of specialty beans roasted with passion by British coffee experts.

Then indulge in delicate artisan chocolates or fudge and delicate Scottish smoked salmon at Borough Market (although please, not at the same time), tuck into creamy west country cheeses or relish the texture of fresh crusty loaves from Cathedral Street and bite into succulent sausages from Cumberland.

Feeling brave? Head to the east end for some jellied eels - but we know this one isn’t for everyone. Try the quintessentially British Sunday roast (not just for Sundays) or perfectly crisp fish and chips in a local pub, both of which just so happen to be improved by local craft brew.

All we’ll say is, arrive hungry!

Great food and great guide

We met our guide Bertie who was such a fun guy and he took us to try various typical British foods which were surpirsingly good! Of course we had fish and chips but we also discovered some other cheeses and foods we had never heard of! Bertie was so knowledgeable and funny and made this tour really fun! Thanks so much

The Full English

I enjoyed the visit to the Borough Markets, particularly seeing the fresh produce, cheeses and the freshly cooked items ready to eat. There was also time to see inside Southwark Cathedral and to take a leisurely walk past the Globe theatre and over the Millenium Bridge. Gianni, our, guide, showed us lots of interesting stalls and was patient when we stopped at any particular stalls that interested us. He also advised us about transport for the trip Eric and I planned to make on Saturday. The tour results in happy memories. I would recommend Gianni to other people planning to do the same tour.

Thank you for the happy memories

Gessica is a lovely young woman who has acquired a general knowledge of London through her student days. She is adaptable as to tour locations, and can ensure that you see what you particularly want to explore. I enjoyed my tour of Regent, Oxford and Carnaby streets with lunch at the Old George Inn. You will also gain much needed confidence in getting around by Underground during your stay in London.
