Best part of our London Stay
Gerald_P, July 2023
We had Sam as our guide, and this was amazing! He was easy to find and a little early at our meeting place. The food was well thought out, giving us a broad selection of British food. In addition, Sam gave us such a neat history lesson and showed us a great part of town. We will definitely recommend this to anyone we know going to London!
Response from Host, July 2023

Yaaaay for Gastronomic Tourism and Sam in London
David_H, June 2023
Sam taught us a lot of history and food facts we didn't know and fed us a bunch of really good stuff. A wild and yummy midday in and around a really busy market. It was great how his voice stood out in the crowd, and how he had napkins at the ready, and how he answered our questions, and how he stepped back when we wanted to talk among ourselves... 🙂
Response from Host, June 2023
Excitingggg!! Thank you so much David for booking with LondonFoodTour & the 5 Star Rating! Sam is super happy to have guided your tour & your most kind appreciation. Here at LondonFoodTour, we understand the market stays busy & we make a special effort to ensure that guides do speak at a sound pitch that is audible to our small group easily while ensuring the other passers-by are also not disturbed. We hope to meet you guys again soon on the same tour or at our other tour offering 'The Royal London Food Tour'
Great Tour - So Fun!
Michael_A, Mar 2023
We did this food tour with family and friends. Our guide Sam was awesome. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. He also provided alternatives at each food place for a nut allergy and gluten free. We loved the markets he took us to. Food portions were good size so come hungry. We would highly recommend this tour.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for the lovely review. Sam said you were an absolute star and he too thoroughly enjoyed his time while being your tour guide. Here at 'London Food Tour' we try wherever possible that all dietary requirements are taken care of & hence continually study the market for alternate options :) Thank you again for taking the time to write this kind review :)
Do it! You won't regret it.
Glenn_M, Nov 2022
Sam was an excellent guide. He was a wealth of information and the food was very good. Do not eat before taking this tour.
Highly recommend this Personalized and accommodating food tour
Laura_S, Oct 2022
Sam was an amazing tour guide. We had one person allergic to nuts and one person who is gluten intolerant and he was able to accommodate everyone at each location, and did so seamlessly, without anyone feeling like a burden or feeling left out. Sam also made sure everyone was comfortable at every stage, including proactively offering restroom breaks and napkins, etc. Sam also knew a lot of history and fun facts. My husband and I always do food tours when we travel, and Sam blew us away as the best host we have ever had. Great tour, great food, highly recommend.
My favorite tour in England!
Lisa_D, June 2022
This tour by Kai was my favorite by far on our trip to England. We only had 5 plus the guide in our group so it was the best! There were at least 10 places to eat and drink. We enjoyed everything from the food (baps, fish and chips, oysters with champagne, cheeses, tea with scones, etc.) to the atmosphere of Borough Market. It was so much fun to try things that we had never had before as well as revisit old favorites. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
Response from Host, Sept 2022
Wow! Thank you so much for the 5 Star Rating! Kai is certainly a gem to have on the team. We are glad you enjoyed the tour & will surely pass on your kind words :) Here at 'London Food Tour' we always want to ensure that our guests feel well taken care of & thank you again for choosing to book with us. Hope to meet you again soon at one of our tour offerings :)
Great experience
Susan_L, Oct 2021
This was a real exploratory tour. Each location/sample came with its historical background as to how it became a part of English dining. Each sample was more than adequate (especially the jellied eel).
Excellent Food Tour
Chris_B, July 2021
Very enjoyable tour in a historic part of London. All food experiences were excellent so was our guide Kay. Need to arrive with an empty stomach.
Great tour
Inbar_B, June 2021
Kiy was really great, he took us to try special traditional food alongside the informative and interesting history explanations. We highly recommend this tour!
Loved this tour!
Kristen R, Nov 2019
We unfortunately don’t remember the name our our tour guide! But he was wonderful! So sweet and knowledgeable! The food on this tour was amazing, portions were so big! We couldn’t eat it all!! My favorite parts were the fish and chips, the cheese tasting (love the smoked Mayfair!) and the cream tea at Bill’s!
Response from Host, Dec 2019
Hi Kristen, Many thanks for such a great review and your appreciation for our Guides and their efforts to introduce you to some of London's finest foods. Cheers
Robert R, Aug 2019
We met our guide at the meeting spot. Who happened to be Kevin Bond (James's younger brother)he guided us thru the tour. Very knowledgeable and entertaining with quality food thrown in. The food is included in the price of the tour all you have to do is enjoy the sights and history.
Response from Host, Aug 2019
Thanks Robert, Kevin said in his own words 'you were an absolute legend'. We've given him a pat on the back :)
Fantastic Tour
Andrew R, July 2019
Kevin was a great tour guide. The small group made it nice, although funnily enough, we were all from California. Enjoyed all the places we sampled. It was truly the best fish and chips we had on our trip. We went back to the market a couple more times to try more food. A great way to learn about the area, and find some great food.
Great Food Great Tour
Megan_O, June 2018
Our tour guide, Kevin Bond, was so friendly and so knowledgeable. The food was incredible and the tour was through one of the best places in London.
We really enjoyed the tour! It was...
Susan F, Apr 2017
We really enjoyed the tour! It was so much more than food, the history of the market and London were presented so well by our delightful guide! I'd highly recommend you do this as the food was amazing, too! I'd just suggest a bit more clarity as to where to meet to start the tour, that was a bit fuzzy. Susan
