Profiteering off Global Crisis
Apr 2020
No refund even though, no tour. My flights were cancelled due to shutdown, and travel ban. Secret Food Tours refused to refund my 106.20 pounds (for two persons and drink package.) I contacted them several times since the March 2020 cancellation, and I've only received generic non-substantive responses, and to date, NO REFUND. I cannot support a company that seeks to make a profit of the global crisis. Everyone else (airline, hotels, theatre) have provided full refunds.

Hi, Although we understand your upsetting, in the Terms and Conditions you have agreed with when booking the tour we inform our clients that we do not operate refund, however, because we do not want you to be at a loss, we have always to the satisfaction of all, organized a date or destination change or even passing the vouchers to another party and this without time limit, so if you could get in touch with us we can arrange this for you. Also in this time of global crisis shutting down all our operations and letting 95% of our staff to keep a skeleton team can hardly be called making profit. Trust us when we say that we are working hard to be able to welcome you back when operations will resume.

Excellent family activity
Feb 2020
We have participated in numerous Secret Food tours during our travels and this one just might have been the best one yet. Our guide Chantelle was fabulous--full of energy and information. We got to try food from three different regions and the quantity and quality of it all was superb. My only complaint is that I ate too much!

Amazing food on the tour
Jan 2020
On the first Saturday in January we spent a very enjoyable evening with 10 other people in the company of Ravi our tour guide. We met just outside the Whitechapel Gallery at 5:30pm and were led down Brick Lane. After a short walk Ravi explained what we would be getting on the tour and explained about the history of the area. We stopped in several different restaurants where we tasted lovely food. Ravi continually made sure we were all happy with what was provided and kept the conversation flowing between the various guests. On route between restaurants we visited an old super market opened in the mid 1930’s which sold a vast array of different spices, curry ingredients etc in various sizes and all at very reasonable prices. We finished our tour at the Lahore Kebab house where we had the best lamb chops I had ever had. The tour ended at about 9:45pm. A great evening one I would definitely recommend.

Indian Food Tour of Brick Lane
Dec 2019
My husband and I spent a very enjoyable evening in the company of our tour guide Shanelle. We met outside the Whitechapel Gallery and were escorted down Brick Lane. We stopped in several different restaurants tasting delicious food along the way. We visited a store selling a vast array of different spices, teas, rice and curry ingredients all at very reasonable prices. We learnt about the history of Brick Lane and also about the various spices used in making curry and their medicinal properties. Shanelle was a wonderful guide and we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
