    We enjoyed this tour, and Becky was one of the main reasons. Great conversations and recommendations on the market. Once we were stuffed at the market, we had a nice stroll on the river as she pointed out several interesting and historical items.

    This was the best thing I could have done with the short time I had in London. Ana M. was FANTASTIC at showing me around the market and communicating with me beforehand. She tailored every moment according to things I liked. She had a love of food and a terrific knowledge of the local community. I would suggest this to anyone who would like to try the food London has to offer.

    What an amazing food tour with Ana Ortiz. We met in the hotel lobby and then traveled together into the maze of the Borough Market. We exchanged several emails about likes, dislikes, interests, previous travel and past food experiences prior to the tour. Ana used that information to perfection to make some amazing choices that combined British tradition like teas and Scotch eggs with surprising international dishes and beverages from places like India, Spain, Colombia and Iraq. I would never have imagined leaving London as a new fan of Iraqi cooking!! We ended the day with some mulled wine as a reminder of ancient Roman influences that persist in modern London. Ana was fun to be around and was genuinely interested in making the tour perfect. At no time were we rushed. She made it clear that the tour wasn’t set in stone, so if we noticed something interesting as we passed by a shop it was fair game. As an American unaccustomed to buying food in a traditional market, it was also fun watching her go back and forth with the vendors to make sure everything was just right. We also bought several items to take home for gifts and self indulgent treats along the route. At the end, Ana helped us find the next stop on our itinerary, which was close to the market, but not as easy to find as one might expect. Don’t eat breakfast beforehand, and don’t clean your plate at every stop. You will still get plenty to eat by the end and I predict that you will go away with a very different idea about British food than you arrived with!! Very highly recommended!
