Dinah was an outstanding hostess for our food tour. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the very eclectic East End and she was able to reminisce about her own personal family history in the area. She made us feel like we were part of her family. This tour is highly recommended with Dinah as the guide!

I had read wonderful reviews of this tour and especially about Lauren, the guide. I was so happy to find out that Lauren was going to be our guide as well, and she did not disappoint. The tour is so much more than food, with a lot of history and culture thrown in. There is a great variety of cuisine to sample; to be sure you do not leave hungry. The east end of London is a slice of London most tourists don't experience, but it really is something that should not be missed.

This was one of the greatest tours we've ever taken. Our guide, Emily Rose, was really great. She was fun and very interesting. All of our group kept raving about our experience with her. We wished she could join us for the rest of our trip. That is how much we enjoyed her great personality. We easily felt her part of our family trip!! The food was great and certainly plenty. It was a great variety from really good restaurants. We even went back to 2 of the restaurants to enjoy the food again. Everyone LOVED the bread and butter pudding!!
