Great food and awesome guide!!
Jun 2021
We were coming in from Chiswick and took an uber to arrive on time, only to get caught in tons of traffic. I contacted the tour and told them that we were running late, and asked if we could meet them at one of the food stops. They responded very quickly and said that the food tour would leave at the appointed time, but they had another guide who would meet us at the meeting place. We assumed that he would help us meet up with the group--instead we were so lucky to get Kevin Bond as our guide as he just happened to be off work that day, and we had a tour with only us.
Kevin was an awesome guide, who gave us lots of history of the various foods that we tried, as well as some good stories about different spots in London and some history, as well. He also took us to a spot where we got to watch the changing of the guard.
The food was great! We loved the scotch egg, the cheese in the cheese shop was delicious, the chocolate was awesome and we ended with a "proper English afternoon tea".
If you are looking for a great food tour that includes great tastings, good history and interesting facts about London, we would definitely recommend this tour. Thanks, Kevin, for a fantastic day!

A thorough 'Royal" tour
Oct 2019
Gotta say I wasn't disappointed! This was my second choice for food tours in London, my first being sold out, but this was so much fun and so intimate. Thank you Kevin Bond. I learned so much and the food tastings were interesting. The Scotch Eggs, the chocolate and THE CHEESES - wow - all so good. Loved the extra stories along the way and all the business with Royal Warrants. If you want to learn some off-beat facts and see the "royal" area of London, I would hightly recommend.

It was a rainy tour day, but the walk was steady and level, so just about anybody can do it. Nice lunch time tea to wrap things up!

Dear Liz, It was our great pleasure to show you the Royal side of London & great to know you enjoyed our effort. The cheese stop is surely an awesome attraction as the place has been open since 1797 & currently holds 2 Royal warrants! :-) We hope to get an opportunity to serve you guys soon again on another tour! Thanks

Best food tour ever!
I just finished my Royal food tour with Kevin Bond. We have done food tours all over the US and Europe and I believe this was the best! Kevin is a dancer in the West End and he moves fast, but is full of knowledge about Royal history and each of the offerings were wonderful and very interesting. We got to see the changing of the guard, eat from Royal food vendors, taste cheese and receive a lesson on cheese from a cheese specialist (2/3 were ranking best in the world) and much much more. I was alone because my hubby is on business in London and I tagged along, but I cannot say enough good things about this tour and especially about Kevin Bond!

Jun 2019 • Family
We loved this small group food tour. Kevin Bond was our guide and he was fabulous. We tasted all sorts of delicious foods - some that were created at the request of previous royals and some that are currently enjoyed by royals. The tour has a lot of very interesting history about the royals and we greatly enjoyed it.

Definitely recommend this tour and Kevin Bond!

One of the best mornings of our trip!
Apr 2019 • Family
As a mother traveling with two teen girls (13 and 14), I wanted to book something that would keep their attention, combining sight-seeing, changing of the guards and a bit of royal culture. This walking tour was a perfect fit. Kevin Bond was an excellent tour guide - personable and knowledgeable. The kids even felt comfortable asking questions - they were often walking up ahead with him he was so inviting and engaging.

We were on the "royal food tour" which highlighted shops and food stores the royals visit. This tour was extremely informative and the best surprise was when Kevin took us to the "real" changing of the guards (excellent vantage point) the exact location I won't mention in this review, you'll have to go see for yourself!

Thank you so much, Kevin! We all agreed you were a highlight of the trip!

Thoroughly enjoyable sightseeing and food experience
Apr 2019 • Friends
We both enjoyed our food tour with Kevin, he was very informative and entertaining. The walking tour took to us many sights and sites that we wouldn’t have found ourselves. We enjoyed the stories of these places as well as all the food samples which were all delicious and perfectly proportioned. We highly recommend this tour!

Sep 2018 • Couples
We met our guide at Green Park on our first morning in London and walked through the area and saw wonderful shops and learned interesting tidbits about the life style of the royals. We visited several of the shopping malls which we would not have seen on our own, because they were on small side streets. We visited Fortnum and Mason and enjoyed the scotch eggs so much we went back later. The cheese shop was excellent and our guide pointed out Duke, which has legendary martinis. It was a delightful introduction to London.

Best food tour so far
My husband and I love food tours and have experienced at least four prior to today. The Royal Food Tour today was the best ever: lots of seriously good food and, just as important, our guide, Kevin, was also the best. He tells lots of stories (true, too) about royals in history, pointed out some of their homes (beyond Buckingham Palace), and connected our food with specific kings and queens. We never were rushed and could take in all the sights of Royal London.
Thanks, Kevin.
