Cambridge Food Tour is run by Gerla de Boer, who considers herself to be a foodie traveller and she promises to show you what is new, high quality, fresh and local, including international food, and the fashionable places to eat right now.

This is a walking tour lasting 4 hours (“Lunch”) or 5 hours (“Classic”) f0r £37.50 or £55 per person respectively.  They promise to introduce your taste palate to new flavours, and that you will be in for a real treat.   Read Delicious Magazine UK ‘s review of the tour by clicking on Delicious Magazine UK.

So, this is ‘a Tasting Tour of Cambridge’ or as Master Chefs like to say: ‘ a surprise tasting tour’. The food on the tour is just as seasonal as the weather, as Cambridge tastes different every season, and with so many food and beer festivals around, it would be a pity not to dip into them too.

The tours start at 10am (“Classic” 5-hour tour, Thursday to Sunday) and 11am (“Lunch” 4 hour tour, Monday to Saturday), and you need to have booked 12 hours in advance, although there is a late booking hotline 01223 269991 to snap up any last minute spare places.  They also cater for private parties.

To book, e-mail your booking to: , and write “Booking” in the subject line (header).



Children are allowed on the tours, and can take part in the tasting tour for £27.50 and £35 respectively.
