Celia met us in Covent Garden with some tasty macaroons and off we went to various eateries that we would not have known about otherwise. Our final stop was a wine bar where we had platters of cold meats... More

I joined Celia and a small group for today's Portobello tour. What a lovely experience, Good food, good company combined with Celia's gastronomic knowledge and knowledge of the area. A very balanced tour leaving one "hungry for more" but not hungry ! Thoroughly recommended.

Having recently moved to London; Borough Market can be overwhelming. By joining this tour, I was able to try things I probably would not have tried. Celia has a wealth of knowledge about Borough Market as well as all the vendors. I had a spectacular time and recommend the tour to anyone who wants to try exquisite food while learning... More

With my wife I joined 10 other people for Celia's guided tour of Portobello Road and adjoining areas. We had previously joined her on the Borough Mkt. tour and thoroughly enjoyed that one, so here we are again. She didn't disappoint. We visited various food emporiums including a Spanish Supermarket would you believe, which was very interesting, we also sampled... More

Highly recommend this experience. I bought a tour of Covent Garden for my mum and we both loved it. We know Covent Garden well but, as we hoped, were introduced to places we'd never noticed before. We tasted delicious food and drink and Celia was a wonderful guide.

We had previously visited Covent Garden with Celia and this tour of Borough Market was just as brilliant. You get to feel special as stall holders go out of their way to explain their products and provide exclusive samples. Celia herself is just brilliant company. we will be back for more.

We have visited Borough Market many times but were surprised by just how much we didn't know and hadn't seen! The tour was really interesting and we particularly enjoyed sampling the many and varied delights to be found in the market!

We had a wonderful tour of Borough market with Celia, she is very knowledgeable and gave us fascinating insights into the history of the area and the existing store holders. We had the opportunity to taste many samples of food and drink from specialist stalls and plenty of time to buy without any obligation or pressure. My husband and I... More
