We really enjoyed the food and Izaak. He was quite funny. Our group was so fun as well. The East end is interesting historically and Izaak interspersed some facts so we learned a lot.

Authentic Experience in London’s East End
Bob_H, Sept 2023
Isaac gave us a wonderful food and history tour of London’s East End. We explored a variety of tasty and generous portions in some of the area’s traditional establishments, learned interesting historical facts, and thoroughly enjoyed his great sense of humour!
Excellant food tour!
Michael_H, Sept 2023
Very well done. Guide was very knowledgeable and fun to be with. Would have like some more food types to try.
Romantic, scenic, entertaining

Highly Recommend!
Jeanie_A, Sept 2023
Had a great time exploring East London and eating some incredible food. Isaac was an excellent guide—animated and easy to listen to. I’ve been to London before, but never ventured to the East. I’m so glad I did this tour because I’ve been missing out. East London has so much character—I enjoyed hearing the history and again, the food was great. The one thing I would note is that it says beer/wine is included in the “what’s included” description, but it’s not. The beverage provided is a breakfast tea at the end, which was actually really tasty. Not a big deal, tour doesn’t need alcohol, but I just figured I’d mention it in case people are looking out for it.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
Hi there, thanks for your review. I will get Viator to update their wording. It should say: If you purchase the drink package then 3 alcoholic drinks are included on top of the food. We are glad you still highly recommend us and had an incredible time exploring East End.
Great cultural experience
Fiona_J, Sept 2023
Tour guide, Niall, was well informed & knowledgeable. He had a lovely way of expressing himself. The tour was well paced. It also included history of the local area & the food was totally amazing. My tip: don’t eat too much before the tour! Highly recommended
Come hungry and enjoy!
Sue_M, Sept 2023
Fantastic tour!! Issac was wonderful…gave interesting stories about the areas we walked through (to me food tours are about more than the food). My husband has some mobility issues and walks very slowly so we always lag behind. Issac made sure to wait so we didn’t get too far behind. Five of the six selected restaurants were excellent. The one outlier was the National dish of fish & chips. Our tiny portion of the fish and chips was dry and lukewarm but the full portions they served to other customers looked amazing. The portions were perfect size except for the fish & chips where I think we got shortchanged a bit (it was literally two small bites). We even got to take our leftover beigel sandwich home and had it for dinner!
Dave rocks, your was awesome.
Ron_D, Sept 2023
Dave was a fantastic guide - funny, informative, friendly. Accommodated my daughter’s vegetarian needs, worked with the destinations to prepare special versions. We’ve done good tours before and we’ve found the guide makes it breaks the tour - Dave makes it. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dave to anyone else.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
We definitely agree- a guide can make or break a tour- thats why EATING EUROPE only have the best of the best!

Alejandro_R, July 2023
Dave was the perfect guide - personable, articulate, knowledgeable and entertaining. very knowledgeable about the local history, he made the tour experience most enjoyable and memorable, despite the rainy London weather. the food was quite enjoyable, notably the sweets “Apple Crumble” and “Sticky Toffee Pudding” and outstanding curry at Aladin.
Response from Host, July 2023
We have something for everyone- including the sweet teeth! glad you had an outstanding time and we hope to see you again sometime!
Scrumptious walk
Stephen_B, July 2023
Wonderful local history and food bites. Easy going good pace and friendly group of tourists. Very enjoyable
Not just a food tour
Denise_A, June 2023
This tour was recommended by a friend and it did not disappoint. Dave, our tour guide, was amazing. He added lots of little facts about streets, buildings, art etc. It wasn’t just a tour to try local foods it was a history of the East End. If you take this tour be sure to ask for Dave.
Lovely tour!
Christine_O, June 2023

Highlight of London Experience
amandanoblin, June 2023
Food tours are one of my favorite things to do while traveling, and the London East End tour exceeded my expectations in all categories: food, fun, and historic culture! Our tour guide, Josh, was OUTSTANDING, and I have already recommended this tour to friends.
Response from Host, June 2023
Wow, we exceeded your expectations!!! Thats something to celebrate- thank you for spreading the word!!!
A top experience
Martin_K, June 2023
Two top class guides who gave the group a first class tour. Not just the food, (which was of top quality and varied), but also interesting facts about the area and architecture. Recommended!
Response from Host, June 2023
First class all the way with Eating Europe!!! Thanks so much for your review!!
Food & So Much More
William_C, May 2023
One of the better food tours we have experienced. Not only was the food delicious, the history lesson of the East End of London we received from our guide Nial was exceptional. He truly made this a highlight of our trip. We never would’ve known this area of London existed if we had not joined this delightful tour. We also lucked out with the nice people in the group. Cheers!
Response from Host, May 2023
Wow thanks William for your review. We are so glad you got to experience the East End with us- a hidden treasure for lots of tourists.
Great food and walking tour of East End London!
Julie_W, May 2023
We had some delicious bites in the East End and our guide Madilyn was great. She is from the East End and loves it so it shows. Her stories of the history of the area were great. This area was very busy so sometimes it was a little hard to hear. Highly recommend for adults.
Response from Host, May 2023
Yes, thanks for the feedback. Super busy area especially on the weekend. Sundays in particular - we have the Brick Lane market so there's lots of hustle and bustle! Very lively indeed!
Amazing Food Tour!
Sheryl_H, May 2023
We highly recommend this tour and our tour guide Josh was amazing! Every stop was a unique type of food and Josh was knowledgeable about the food as well as history of the area. He made it fun and interesting. We had a blast! A definite highlight of our visit to London.
Response from Host, May 2023
We hope to be he highlight of many travellers holidays when they come to London. This tour is an experience that we promise you will remember for a very long time to come. Thank you!!!!
Great and tasty time
Roei_R, Apr 2023
Great food, wonderful and charismatic guide. Some of the dishes we would have never tried on our own, and we loved them (like the apple crumble at Spitafields market)
