Description
Meet your gastronomic guide and small group at Golden Square, Soho, at 2:15pm for a journey into one of London's most cosmopolitan and vibrant districts, a rich blend of history and modernity. Packed with pubs, bars, cafés, snack shops, and restaurants, Soho is home to a startling variety of international cuisine: from Chinese (especially in Chinatown) to Japanese, Mexican, Italian, and modern British.

You'll learn how Soho became London's Bohemia, from the first influx of immigrants in the late seventeenth century that gave it its name “the French Quarter” to the glory days of 20th-century nightlife and sleaze. Discover a culinary melting pot once home to the capital's leading intellectuals and artists.

As you explore, enjoy up to six food stops at places popular with the locals. Get insider tips from your guide on avoiding the tourist traps, and develop a great, first-hand feel for the real, everyday Soho — the one that’s not always immediately obvious.

Stop at various food outlets, including a historic, tucked-away foodie courtyard, and taste different world foods. Samples and stops on each tour vary according to availability, but expect to taste dishes such as dim sum in Chinatown, scrumptious Mexican tacos, and Japanese seaweed-rolled sushi.

Chat to the vendors about their creations as you eat, and in between stops, soak up the vibrant, villagey atmosphere. Hear stories about Soho’s fascinating history and the  famous figures, including writers, artists and poets, who have shaped its culture and folklore.

Your tour finishes in Soho around 5:45pm, when your guide bids you goodbye. They'll be happy to offer directions to wherever you plan to go next, or suggestions for places for you to start your evening.
