Brunch at the Borough Market
"Glad we had a guide to help us navigate the market. Brunch was fun and delicious. Amazing how many different tastes and spices available. Good tour! Can recommend!"

Alot of fun
"We all had a fun time on this tour. We were with my parents and there were two others in our groups so just the 6 of us. Thomas, our guide, is a native of London but has lived and studied all over Europe so he's a really interesting guy. The Market itself had alot of activity going on so it was really fun to stroll through the stalls and store fronts. We stopped for several things to eat (which were delicious, by the way) and basically just had a really great morning. If you book this tour, you won't be sorry!"
