What people are saying about St James's Palace

We enjoyed the Food Tour very much. The guide was very good and friendly. He had a lot of knowledge about the city and knew an answer to all our questions. It was the best activity we did in London. We also enjoyed the British food. This activity is highly recommended!

Loved the tour but the food part disappointed.

The tour was outstanding but the food tour was basically the guide finding us a place to sit near Bourough Market and he went around and collected the foods and presented them all at once like a waiter. I’ve been on a few food tours and it’s never done that way.

Brilliant tour, our guide Chris was very knowledgeable about the areas we visited and the history too. Make sure you have a good breakfast as the food stop is right at the end of the tour at Borough market.

Tim, our guide, was superb. Very knowledgeable, patient, easy to understand and really cared that everyone had what they needed. Great sense of British humor. Really knew his stuff.

Chris was an excellent tour guide. He was very well versed and made the day very enjoyable. We would highly recommend this tour.
