We were a party of four visiting London for a few days before starting our road trip through England. I booked this based on the reviews I read and could not have been happier. I travel all over the world and make a point of doing a walking food tour in each city I go to. This ranks as one of the best I've experienced. Our guide was David and we spent the next few hours with him visiting the food stands of the Borough Market and finishing up at a local restaurant. David has been a chef in the past and was very knowledgeable both with the history of London and this specific area, but also of the foods we were eating. We had a variety of foods as he explained why each food was important. We ate empanadas, fish and chips, cheeses, sausages rolls and various desserts. I'm sure I'm leaving a few things out because by the end of our tour we were completely satisfied and more. David also gave us time to shop in each area and we picked up food items for our picnics on the road. Each food we ate was delicious and everyone had their favorite. Dave also left us with a big bag of brownies which paired well with the bottle of wine later that night. I definitely recommend doing this tour when you're in London and hope you're fortunate enough to have David as your guide!

We did the London Bridge tour with David (Sir David). It was our family of 4 (two 9 year olds) and another couple, so nice small group. I know David does these all the time but that didn't stop him from making us feel special and attended to. The food...I'm back in the US and craving the food! The kids loved every bite as well. We were stuffed at the end.
David did a great job of sharing the history of the market and the current day cooperative nature of the vendors. My kids were able to articulate why we bought cheeses that were aged with alcohol (history lesson about WW2). That's impressive!
We had a delightful time. My husband said before the tour 'How can this last 3 hours?' and wasn't ready to be done after almost 4 hours.
Thank you Sir David!

Our guide, Charlie, met us at London Bridge and the tour concentrated upon the food outlets in and around Borough Market. Charlie tailored the content of the tour to our particular tastes as neither of us eat fish.

There were five formal food tastings: 1) bacon and egg breakfast roll, 2) Swiss tartiflette, 3) sausage roll, 4) cheese, washed down with cider, and 5) carrot cake. Each was delicious and, although it’s impossible to pick a favourite, the bacon and egg roll and the sausage roll were the stars of the show for me.

Between the five food tastings, there was also time to explore parts of the market on our own and taste even more of the delicious items of food and drink on offer.

Charlie was an excellent host who knew about the history of the local area and about the various foods we wear sampling. He was witty, polite and entertaining. Thank you, Charlie, for an excellent three hours.

I highly recommend this tour

Instead of wandering aimlessly around this huge market with little background knowledge and not knowing where to begin, David set the tone right from the start. The tour was informative, fun, relaxed and delicious! It is very apparent that this tour is a labor of love. The food and drink selections were thoughtfully chosen, utterly delicious and really captured the flare of Borough Market! Everything was explained in detail every step of the way. Even my 13 year old walked away saying that it was the best food tour EVER! Thank you, David!!! We will most certainly be back!

Our guide Melissa definitely made our tour that extra bit special- She was so attentive, enthusiastic, energetic and most importantly so knowledgeable- we could not fault her and if we were to recommend the tour to anyone we would say request to have Melissa as your tour guide.
The food was amazing and Melissa talked us through each place with great confidence, giving us that extra bit of history. Standouts for us were the Vanilla doughnut, Sticky toffee pudding, and of course Fish and Chips.
We had such a great day out, would recommend to anyone looking for a fun foodie day out!

Awesome way to be introduced to London food, culture, and history! After we landed at Heathrow at 6:30 AM, we dropped our bags off at the hotel, took a quick ride on the Tube, and met Ivo for our 10:30 AM tour. Could not have begun with a better breakfast, starting with the bacon & egg BAP, Ivo made us feel at ease with our asking any question and always make sure we had the best experience in and thorough knowledge about each eating location. Sausage rolls, cheese platter, cider, fish and chips, sticky toffee pudding… Everything was made from the best quality ingredients, covering both breakfast and lunchtime. Will definitely try another tour next time in London!

My tour was David was simply delicious. Such enthusiasm, energy and panache is what makes a tour guide really special. David had that and oh so much more

A marvellous journey through cheese, mead and sausage rolls culiminating in quintessentially sweet and Sticky toffee finish.

If only all dinners were accompanied by David and perhaps a side of that fine ale he gave me. What a glorious nectar to taste on the pallete.

He took the rough in borough and made it smooth, a fine gentleman, one I’d call family. I do hope I see him in this life or the next.

For now farewell, a glowing 5*

He talked about the London landmarks, traditions and the people who live there, while making everyone feel welcomed, by remembering each one of our names.

We love doing a food tour in new cities and this one was perfect. Starting at London Bridge and going in and around Borough Market we had a great selection of food and drinks...a breakfast sandwich, fish & chips, mead, a Scottish egg, cheese plate, sticky toffee pudding, and a donut.
Each stop was a short walk from the previous and Chris mixed in lots of information with humor!! We saved his best ones for near the end, though!! We had a great time!!
