Full description
Firstly, your local London guide takes you to the exciting Borough Market to soak up the atmosphere and eat some English fudges/chocolate. This eating paradise was not even on the tourist foodie radar a few years ago. Still around the market, you will try award winning Cumberland sausages, followed by the best fresh fish and chips in town. Note the difference between "chips" and "French fries!" There is so much to see in the market that your guide will give you 10-20 minutes to look around yourselves, giving you a chance to buy gifts or eat any samples. Your personal guide will explain the history of the market and the surrounding areas including Sir Francis Drake’s Golden Hind, the Shard and Southwark Cathedral. Your tour will continue to a historic pub where you can try the best of British cheeses, served with grapes, fig cakes and chutneys, washed down with real London beers, ales or delicious ciders (or non-alcoholic options). You will also see the world-famous London Bridge and Tower Bridge on the River Thames as well as the Battleship HMS Belfast. Finally, the tour ends with classic desserts, such as cheesecakes, chocolate brownies or sticky toffee puddings, all washed down with a pot of refreshing tea. Oh, and of course there’s a delicious secret dish too!

    Our guide was Dan, and he was really awesome! He made the tour so enjoyable, and included everyone in the activities. The food he had arranged was sooo good, and we loved it all. He let us have time to go off by ourselves for a bit so we could further explore the Borough Market. I would absolutely take this tour if I was coming to London - and ask for Dan to be your guide!

    A very fun and informative excursion. It was an easy jaunt and there were no stairs, hills, or stress. Perfect for a senior traveller and safe for a woman alone. The food was incredible and our guide, David, was helpful, informative, charming and knowledgeable. We tasted foods from the Borough Market and it was teaming with goodies and British history.
