We have lived in Chester for 43 years but still learned a lot about the City on our walking food tour guided by Gareth of Chester Food Tours. We thoroughly enjoyed eating at various independent eateries on this well paced tour. We can really recommend it to those looking for a different type of food/sightseeing experience.

Me and my partner spent a most enjoyable morning discovering the food and history of Chester on the walking food tour. Gareth was a brilliant and knowledgeable host - providing all sorts of interesting insights and tastes. This would be ideal for tourists wanting to experience a unique insight into Chester but also works equally well for locals like us who often overlook what we have on our doorstep. I couldn't recommend this highly enough!

Gareth was the perfect guide, punctual, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We visited some real gems, all with genuinely proud and hospitable proprietors, the children (aged 8 and 11) liked the fudge and pancakes the most, while I loved it all, Cheese, polish dumplings, pizza, gin, beer, scotch eggs, all brilliant. Our parents (who were also with us on the tour) are recommending Gareth to their various groups of friends. Thank you!!

My wife booked this a surprise for my birthday. 9 of us, including an 8 and an 11 year old. A fascinating tour of some small and independent eateries and foodie shops, mixed in with some interesting history of Chester. Gareth was a fine host and guide and led us around Chester via 7 locations. We enjoyed pizza, local gin and beers, polish delicacies, cheese, fudge, cupcakes and finished with amazing pancakes! Thoroughly recommended, although the children struggled a little bit - but loved watching fudge get made...and tasting it!
