You walk from one cheese store to the next, all within 10 minutes of one another, and don’t step inside any of them. Sanitary conditions are a definite issue—unwashed hands on th cheese.

Definitely not what we expected. From the description we thought we'd be going inside different outlets to taste what they sell/make with a glass of prossecco, the reality was the opposite. We realised we'd be walking, what we didn't realise was that it would be at speed. The tour guide failed to ask if anyone had any problems with mobility and with the rest of the group sped off. My daughter and I are slow walkers asthmatic and other health issues and simply couldn't keep up with the group. The tour kind didn't even realise how far behind we were until she stopped at the first outlet. Were we remaind outside while the guide went inside to bring out a selection of cheeses. We stood on the kerbside to taste. We then moved on to the next outlet and again stood outside while the guide again went to get what we'd be trying. The speed of the walk didn't change even though I was now finding it very difficult to stay with the group. On the way to the next shop the guide informed us we'd have to wait while she went to sainsbury to purchase some bottles of prossecco, what a con. At this point my daughter and I decided to drop out of the tour. At £30 per person I'd expect something better than what we received...I do feel like I was conned and that the tour simply provides the tour guide with a continuous supply of various cheeses at the customers expense. Personally I could have done my own tour at a fraction of the cost...At a pace that wasn't verging on a jog and found it more enjoyable. I can't recommend this tour

Our guide Crystal was great. Cheese was amazing, neighborhood was lovely. Would not have found these cheese shops without a local guide.

Guide was good but be careful of the weather

The guide was very good, but the trip does not take into consideration the weather conditions. We were outside for 2 hours in rain and sleet and snow, in temperatures of 2 degrees. Surely a couple of stops inside a cheesemonger or coffee shop would have been appropriate?

Lovely guide, too expensive
Harriet_A

Lovely tour guide and delicious cheeses. Let down by the price. £60 for two people, when all seven cheeses (for all 16 people) would come to about that, was a bit disappointing. There weren't any cheese puns or quizzes either!

Not Worth the money
Rebecca_R

I went of the tour 31/07/21. I was expecting a chance to go into the shops and support them bur making purchases and trying samples. We I got was eating cheese outside on the street across from the shop. I understand that the cheese itself will have cost money but I'm my opinion it simply isn't worth £30 per person.

Sunny cheese tour

Lisa was very knowledgeable about the cheese and made the tour fun and lighthearted. Was very impressed with the cheese sample sizes and would say the tour is good value for money, getting to try quite a few different types of cheese. Overall lovely few hours and we lucked out with great weather!
