What our guests are saying:
"The tour was bought for me as a birthday gift and 4 of us embarked on the secret market walk tour on a very hot Saturday morning. We booked a private tour and this meant we could really stop and look at what we wanted to as well as Emma showing us her favourite things too. Emma was brilliant. She really made us feel welcome and was very informative. Her knowledge of the local area as well as the history was great. We took a very leisurely walk from Bermondsey tube via St James church towards the arches where we saw many different types of food and drink. Emma bought us lots of amazing foods to try and I especially enjoyed the honey. For those of you that have visited London lots of times previously and think you know the area well; I would really recommend this tour. Emma told us lots of things that we didn’t know before and showed us a great area of London that we wouldn’t have discovered fully on our own. Thankyou Emma!"
