This is the second time we've taken a tour with The Bristol Food Tour. We're local to the area but still learn new things and taste new dishes. Our lovely guide Harriet was enormous fun too. Highly recommended

Hurrah, you're on the way to completing the set! ;) It was lovely to have you along with us again and be able to introduce you to more places. Hopefully we'll see you again this year - we've got lots of exciting routes lined up!

Spent an afternoon on the East-West tour, had a super time - great selection of food (alternating sweet/savoury). Super knowledgeable tour guide, pointers to new gems to visit a few more times now with friends! Highly recommended!

An excellent way to taste foods that you may not naturally choose, from a wide selection of independent traders. A really great experience that opened our eyes to the wide range of eateries on offer in Bristol. Fantastic food, company and great host!
