A very different side of London most won’t typically see. Enjoy the beauty of the east side with awesome guides and stops that will show you the diverse growth of London.

The East London Food tour was absolutely great! Our host Alice brought us around spots of east London we would never have known about or tried! Started with coffee then some bagels, we were then brought to Spitafields market for some Ethiopian food, off for a pint, then for Indian tapas in a lovely restaurant and finished with dessert in a Turkish sweet shop. Alice was extremely informative and so easy to talk to, felt like I knew her years! She had a great knowledge of the history, culture and street art of East London and explained everything really well, it was really great stuff she was telling us! We finished up the tour well fed and well informed!

Second tour with Yaz and both have been excellent. So knowledgeable about the area, friendly, warm, passionate...and the food stops were great. Highly recommend Alternative London AND Yaz if you want to see the East End from a different perspective, behind the veneer.

Had a great tour today with Yaz. She was very good company, with terrific knowledge of the area. Along with superb food like salt beef beigels and Bangladeshi Michelin quality fare, we learned about the waves of immigrants who characterized the East End and the brave and talented street artists who struggle to keep it relevant.

Art, food, history. The perfect combination for a tour. Yaz, our tour guide was informative and clearly impassioned about the East End. Great tour!

Arrive hungry, I was absolutely stuffed by the end. Also doubled as a bit of an art/culture tour of the area as we walked around. Definitely recommended!

Yasmin was a brilliant guide; her local knowledge and knowledge of history is amazing. This was a surprise gift for us and we didn't really know what to expect, but we thoroughly enjoyed the food on offer (traditional beigel, delicious Indian food (an egg curry, no less), steamed buns and homemade fudge, as well as a local beer) and learning a bit more about the area of London that we haven't fully explored before.

Yasmin- this lass knows her sh**t! Made us feel comfortable, welcome and gave us lots of information and history on the local area as well as showing us some great street art and amazing food! Couldn’t recommend it any higher!

Our guide, Gary was friendly and knowledgeable. We were very satisfied with all the delicious food. We also learned a bit about the background of some of the street art in the neighborhood, which was inspiring. Highly recommend this tour!

My husband and I have joined Alternative London for street art tours a couple of times in the past and loved them, so I decided to gift him the food tour during our most recent visit in London. Our three hours with Yasmin were absolutely amazing. We spend a lot of time in London and know the city fairly well, but we learned so much from her - about the history, culture, art, and food in East London and throughout the city! All of the food was wonderful, and Yasmin was accommodating of the fact that I'm a vegetarian. I loved that she made sure we visited places representing the various cultures that have been prominent in the area over the years. While the food and the tour were both fabulous, I have to say that we also just enjoyed the time with Yasmin: it was just the three of us, and we had great discussions about London theatre, art, and culture. She went above and beyond in providing tips and answering our questions, and we couldn't have asked for a better guide!
