Really informative, well-paced, fun and YUMMY! I have always been overwhelmed by Borough Market, and this was a wonderful curated experience.

Our tourguide (Sue) was wonderful! The experience was certainly worth it. The market is large and overwhelming- it was great to have someone guide you to some of the best stops! Plus they handle ordering, waiting in line, paying, etc. I will certainly recommend this tour to family and friends!
