Sam guided us on this tour that started with half an egg and bacon sandwich and moved on from there with pie, oyster and champagne, jellied eel and more. I think there were 9 tastes and drinks along the way--definitely come hungry! Sam was charming and gave great tidbits about history too. Even though I don't think of British food as the most tasty, I was pleasantly surprised. Highly recommend

This was a great way to integrate local/English history into the street foods in the Borough markets area, capped off by afternoon tea. Bonus siting of Bridget Jones residence. Sam was a great guide with an extremely engaging style. Don’t bother to book dinner after your tour, you won’t have space for it.

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!!!

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).

We did the Royal Food tour in 2019 (sorry I'm so late and they made me say Oct. 2020 down below) and it was great. Our guide (I think his name was Kevin-all I remember is he said he was a flying monkey in Wicked) was wonderful. Not only did we have some great tastings but he was full of information. Such a nice guy and a nice way to spend the day. Highly recommend.

This tour did not disappoint. So happy to have had something organized to do on Christmas Eve Day. Kay greeted us with enthusiasm and maintained our interested from start to finish. Not only did he provide topnotch service and a wonderful explanation for why we were eating each food, he did an excellent job sharing the food’s history and the history of London with us throughout the day. And.... speaking of the food, it was indeed some of London’s best. The Borough Market alone was worth the trip!! Definite recommend.
