Great tour. Take good wet weather gear as tour runs in rain, hail or shine. Jacqui was very informative. It was a little hard to hear at times so maybe a microphone would be helpful. Interesting to hear about the borough and the food.More

Your Tour Guide Jackie will ask if there are any diet restrictions at the beginning of the tour. She can accommodate everyone’s preference. Just clarify your preference at the beginning of your tour!
