The ‘East End Food Tour’ is one of the best food tours I have ever attended anywhere! Even though my office used to be close to the area I learned so much more. Lauren was a very knowledgeable and passionate guide that had clearly done her homework on the food, the locals and the surrounding area. The tour was the perfect amount of time with the perfect amount of food!
Food included: Bacon sandwich, Apple crumble, Indian cuisine, multi-award-winning fish and chips and bagels, and you finish off with the best lemon meringue I have ever tried. Also, they have 5* rated tours all over Europe…

Day trip bus tours are perfect for authentic experiences around England. There are day tours available from London that visit, Stonehenge, Oxford, Stratford-Upon-Avon, The Cotswold’s, London Warner Brother’s Studio and many more. I really enjoyed my experiences, learnt a lot from their expert local guides and I think it’s amazing value for money – as you get to see so much in just a day, so no need to spend extra on travel and accommodation to the places of interest you were thinking of visiting.

The Beer Tour costs £59 per person, starts at 12 noon and finishes around 4.30pm in a very cool microbrewery, with some amazing beer choices! For me, it was like being back in North America and I had no idea we had large microbreweries in Central London and I’m seriously glad I did this tour and found out what’s available now. You get to try 1 or 2 drinks at each stop and even see the brewing process and get to meet the head brewers. Also, the tour guide was a real beer expert and answered all questions the group and myself had. I would highly recommend this if you want a super authentic English experience and want to learn about and try some amazing craft beers!!! P.S I would book well in advance – as the tour sells out most weeks – but they do have other options around London too.

The tour costs £31 per person and lasts around 4 hours. It starts at 11 am and you get a decent lunch break around 1 pm at Trafalgar Square – so plenty of places to eat and Museums to see as well. On the tour, you also get to see The Houses Of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, The Royal Parks and Kensington Palace. I think it’s a great way to see the city and I was amazed about how easy the bikes were to ride and how safe the route was! Also, how quickly it was to get everywhere and our guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about London’s history and culture. The tour starts and finishes at Queensway Station – so you get to see a lot of London, get great photo opportunities and to learn a lot of interesting facts too.

The tour costs £129 per person and it is a full-day trip, starting at 9.10 am and returning to London around 8 pm. The tour goes to Stratford-Upon-Avon first for a walking tour, where you get to see where Shakespeare lived and lots of other amazing historical places of interest. Then you drive through the beautiful Cotswolds and learn about English Heritage and the National Trust, with some stops for you to go walk around and get a better understanding of the countryside in the UK first hand. The day finishes with a walking tour of Oxford as well and you get to see the world-famous University and other historic sites of the town. You also get an hour of free time before the bus leaves. I would highly recommend this day tour because it’s a very personal experience – as the group is small, the bus is very comfortable, spacious, the guide is very knowledgeable and entertaining throughout the entire day as well!

The tour starts at 9 am, costs £59 per person and you get to see all these places in a day, North York Moors National Park, the market town of Helmsley, the seaside town of Whitby, the village of Goathland (Harry Potter filming location) and travel back to York through the Howardian Hills passing by Castle Howard and MUCH MORE! I strongly recommend getting out of the major cities to see real England and I went to all these places on school trips from the age of 4 – so you know I can highly recommend them all haha! Eating famous fish and chips in Whitby, seeing the Abbey and the train from Harry Potter were the real highlights for me. You get back into York City centre for around 5 pm – so still plenty of time for dinner and drinks when you get back.

I was blown away with this food tour after growing up in York, living in London, travelling to a lot of places and doing loads of food tours around the world! It costs £60 per person, lasts around 2.5hrs and it has an amazing international theme along with the history of the Romans and Vikings. Which works extremely well and it was the perfect amount of food too. (I have been on tours where there’s not enough, or you leave very bloated and tired). I won’t fully go into detail about everything – as I strongly believe you should do this tour and be as surprised as I was with what my hometown has to offer now – Ippuku Tea House – Think you know Japanese food, think again, Los Moros – A modern North African kitchen, The Chopping Block – For the scrumptious sweet dessert, Pairings – A wine bar with a difference and finish up at York Cocoa House – Chocolate of the best quality made on the premises with love. *More Yorkshire destinations opening soon…

The tour starts at 9 am at Clifford’s Tower, first with a walking tour around the historic sites of the city that lasts around 3hrs before you get a lunch break, then the bus trip and you get back to York around 8 pm. The tour costs £60 per person and is a full day trip, where you get to learn lots about York in the walking tour and then see the beautiful Moors, Whitby and the village of Goathland (Where Harry Potter was filmed). The guide was very knowledgeable and even being from York I learned a lot and had a great time. It was great to see the views of the city from the city walls and there are plenty of breaks to get food, do your own exploring and take lots of pictures as well. This tour feels like 2 tours for the price of one – as you do the walking tour first and then the bus tour with a different guide after!

The tour starts at 11 am and there are even discounts available during the Fringe Festival. The standard price is £9, the tour lasts 2 hrs and you cover around 3 km. The tour starts in Stockbridge market, with an introduction to the history of villages around medieval Edinburgh. Then you stroll along the Water of Leith and here the guide will speak about the origins of Alexander Nasmith’s ideas and the Claudian landscape. After you have heard about the influences of the 1750s, you then see the magnificent Dean bridge, Thomas Telford’s structure to connect Dean Estate to the New Town. The group will then arrive right to the heart of Dean Village, the Baxter’s guild’s settlement that still contains the old bridge, tollbooth, a mill, and a weir. The tour finishes at The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, you also get to see so much more and learn a lot with your expert guide. (Mine was Marie and she was studying architecture).

The tour costs around £55 per person and you get to see so much in just a day! The tour departs at 9 am and the company have their own cafe, for the meeting spot. You arrive back in Edinburgh around 6.30 pm and you have the option of upgrading at the whisky distillery (which I did because you get to sample a dram from the barrel). Here are the stops included in the tour; Dunkeld, The Hermitage, Pitlochry, Queen’s View, Loch Tay and Kenmore and The Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery. It goes without saying BRING your waterproofs and wear comfortable weather-resistant footwear – as Scotland can rain quite a lot. The guides are great, extremely knowledgeable and we even got to stop at The Forth Bridge to take a photo before heading back into Edinburgh. This tour is a great intro to The Highlands, scotch whisky and is ideal for solo travellers!
