We had a wonderful time with Lane. Loved hearing all the historic facts from her about the market and the area, great way to get to know London when visiting! The food stands that were picked were some of the best selections and vendors were informed ahead of time so we didn’t have to wait in line. It’s such a time saver because the market is incredibly busy on weekends. Couldn’t recommend this tour more.

Having a guide at the Bourough market made the experience so much better. We had a great time and would do it again. Everything we ate was delicious and the group was so fun and entertaining. Was great to end at a pub and chat with our fellow travelers at the end.
