What an excellent tour. Polly (our tour guide) was knowledgeable and entertaining. Borough market is super busy but she knew all the places where we could sit to eat the food on our tour, she queued and got us the smaller portions that the general public can’t get so we could sample so much more on our tour. I would highly recommend this tour and Polly. We will definitely book with her again.

Polly is lovely! It’s wonderful to skip the lines and know you will be getting the best options. The small bites are key so you can try several vendors. You can’t do this on your own!

Sarah was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable of both the history of the market and of the actual food stalls we visited which was vast. We started with a scrumptious egg sandwich, followed by yummy oysters, a delightful berry crumble and much more. You MUST come hungry. I couldn’t finish our sausage roll as I had to save space for the ending drink. Sarah is passionate about food and London and it came across throughout her tour. I would highly recommend this tour and ask for Sarah!
