Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    This was a very enjoyable tour. Gary is knowledgeable and the perfect tour guide. The food was delicious! I went by myself - this tour is very easy to do on your own because Gary makes everyone feel included. I highly recommend!

    Beautiful evening for a short trip down the river for our 30th Wedding Anniversary followed by a fantastic meal at the Folly. Had a little table right by the river and the three course meal was amazing. Thoroughly recommend.

    The guide was fantastic and the food was amazing. While the restaurants were great the history Josh, our guide, gave us during our walk through Soho was even better. See Paul McCartney's recording studio, where Mozart lived, where musical legends recorded and performed their greatest works, and why a pineapple is featured on the Soho Mural. So so good.

    What a great way to experience the cultures that make up the diverse Shoreditch area of London! Our guide, Jenny, provided great history and stories while introducing us to many different foods along the way. Our tour was on Sunday. The Spitalfields Market was alive with things to buy and foods to sample.

    This was an amazing food tour. Lauren was outstanding and we had a great time. The food was balanced and portions appropriate. We learned about the market and surrounding area as well as the food. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

    My expectation was that an interesting selection of vegan meals will be selected, preordered and served in the way that the group can share so that everyone can taste more meals and this way have a value added than going to vegan places by yourself.

    Except for the first restaurant, no table reservations were made, no food preordered. We had to wait for a sitting at the second and third location. At the last one we were just lucky that it wasn‘t busy.

    The tour guide would then pick less then one starter per person. Some of the starters were suitable to share, some were not. The selection of the food was poor and not only for a vegan person nothing new.

    The restaurants were quite far from each other and I have the feeling that this was rather a mix of a food and shoreditch walking tour.

    The guide was lovely but new, unexperienced and not well introduced to this tour, trying to make the best out if it. We appreciated the effort.

    The concept of the tour is not well prepared and organised. There is no value added. I recommend rather to go to a couple of vegan places in Shoreditch and have one starter at each.

    The tour was not worth time and money!

    We have taken other food tours, and this was by far the most expensive and least satisfing tour! This was the first time our tour guide sat with us during our tasting experience, and She (Victoria) ate the food from our plates! On the second stop, which was an Indian food dish, she had OUR leftovers (which was a little rice and sauce) boxed to go for her! She took us to places not on the tour, and asked for samples, which made for an uncomfortable situation for both us and the vendors.
    The tour was a long 6 hours with information about Greenwich that was totally irrelevant and unnecessary to the tour.
    She attempted to give us a "gift" of bottled beer, which she purchased at a local liquor store (part of the tour) and said we could drink it at our last stop. We didn't think this was possible, and when she asked the proprietor, he said definitely not! She then said we could open them outside, and keep it inside a brown bag!
    This experience was EXPENSIVE, UNCOMFORTABLE, and TOO LONG!
    Do not waste your money!

    So disappointing. Logistics is a mess. Booked 1 month ago and our food tour was cancelled 2 days prior when we were already in London. We were able to rebook for the following day BUT it was a disaster. We arrived at the tour and a family was there talking to the “tour guide” because their tour had been cancelled and they had not received any notice. After that mess we started our tour that would end abruptly.

    The tour guide said “where do you guys want to start? Do you want to eat now or at the end?” We were puzzled. We want to do whatever is supposed to happen in the food tour, which is you ally tastings along the way. She mentioned that there was a budget of $25 per person so she would take us to the borough market and we could choose an entree, sit down and eat and maybe there would be budget for dessert. WHAT?? This tour clearly states “fish & chips, mushy peas, Scottish egg, ale, and world famous dessert. We read it to her aloud and she was so puzzled. She kept talking about her “budget” and that we might be able to fit in certain city highlights. Again, we read her the description of the locations that were clearly meant to be included in the tour. She simply didn’t know what the tour was supposed to entail but this was an expensive private tour.

    It is not this woman’s fault. It was clear that this company sent her out with no food tour experience and/or knowledge of what the tour consisted of and left her to fail. Me and my friend paid a total of $274 dollars for a tour that was completely a mess, no knowledge of even the description of the tour and a ridiculous “budget of $25”. What on earth were you thinking LONDON TOP SIGHTS TOUR!?!” You can’t treat tourists like this. They said they will reimburse us but money isn’t the point. People travel and make plans well in advance and you ruin a whole day of activities. You also ruined the day for that other family that didn’t know their tour had been cancelled.

    DON’T BOOK WITH THIS COMPANY. THEY ARE A MESS AND WILL EITHER CANCEL RIGHT BEFORE YOUR TRIP OR MAKE A MESS OF IT ALTOGETHER. You can’t plan in advance with this company. Don’t trust them.

    My wife and I booked a Sunday brunch river cruise in London. The website, at the time of booking, says "bottomless food" for the duration of 2.5 hours of sailing but an hour into the sail, all food had vanished from the display. When we asked a member of the staff, we were told there was no food left not even in the kitchen. I feel cheated for the £86 I paid for the brunch cruise.

    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.
