Description
Start the tour as we mean to go on, tasting chocolates fit for a queen, in one of London's most luxurious stores. Pick your own flavours from an amazing selection including sea salted caramels and passionfruit ganaches, right through to champagne truffles or even beetroot with red wine vinegar in dark chocolate!

Once we've tasted chocolates that literally come with a royal seal of approval, we'll pass  through a stately mansion from the 1600's to discover an original, classic and light french patisserie treat.  Choose from Lemon, pistachio, raspberry chocolate, rose cream and more.

Time to wonder through Piccadilly's finest Victoria thoroughfare and on our way towards one of London's best contemporary baking success stories, to indulge in sweet cakes and fondants in a myriad of colours and flavours.

Finally after exploring London's Carnaby Street and its stylish shopping and dining areas, we'll enter our final, secret location.

There to indulge in a tradition as rich as the monarchy.  British scones baked upon your arrival and served with clotted cream and high end preserves, all while enjoying exquisite rare blend teas or barista made coffee.

We were escorted by Glen who was very friendly and knowledgeable. He walked us all over London to places we would never have found on our own. Chocolates, cupcakes, macarons, tea with scones--what a fabulous day! Highly recommend!

This tour was easily one of the highlights from our trip to Europe!
We were lucky to have Linton as our tour guide, he took us to shops we would have never ventured to on our own. He was knowledgeable not only in desserts but taught us quite of few things about London as well.
Book this tour, it's delicious and fun! You won't regret it!

My wife and I loved this small group tour. Our tour guide Glen Hodge, was very nice and knowledgeable and took us to places we would never had seen or known about. There were supposed to be another couple but they did not show up so we had him all to ourselves. We tasted some very good chocolate and deserts some in which the Queen often buys. After a great tour of places, many in which the royals use, we had a nice tea in a quaint cafe that very few tourists would know about. Since the other couple did not show up I wish I had tipped him more then I did. Sorry Glen. Trust me couples or dessert and chocolate lovers you will love this tour. https://www.viator.com/tours/London/Luxe-London-Dessert-Tour/d737-37724P3

I took this tour last Dezember 2016. It was a small walking tour indeed since it were Linton and me. Quite nice having your own tour guide. Linton is well educated about the area and the general history. So I learned a lot and enjoyed the tour very much. I can only recommend booking this tour. I had a splendid time. Thanks.

Linton was an excellent guide telling us all sorts of interesting info. which even I as someone who used to live in London didn't know we went to some great places to sample desserts/ sweet things including a 'secret' place for afternoon tea!
