    Really good food tour of York. Ben was full of knowledge about food and local history. Highlights of the tour were the tacos from the Shambles Market, cheese tasting and the mushy peas from the chippy. Catering for special dietary needs was not a problem. Was also good how in every place that we visited you felt like a VIP as you were whisked to a table and staff were very attentive in telling you about what you were eating.

    We had a lovely morning. Not only was the food delicious and quite varied in terms of cuisine, but we also saw a lot of York in the process. Ben was extremely passionate and knowledgeable about York and it's culture, and gave us more excellent recommendations which we tried later on our trip. Definitely worth the money, thanks Ben for the tour!

    Had the pleasure of meeting Ben today, for the York on a Fork tour. He was great company and very passionate about York and its food and drink culture. All the food was amazing but we particularly enjoyed the tacos from the street food stall in the Shambles and then the beef filled yorkshire pudding with a glass of real ale, at the Chopping Block! Thoroughly recommend!

    A fun and interesting way to learn more about the food on offer in York and see the city at the same time. Lots of tasty food samples on offer, you won't feel short changed!

    The tour was great - a brilliant way to see beautiful York as well as trying some of the delicious food on offer there. The portions at each place were just right, so by the end I didn't feel like I'd over indulged! Ben was a friendly and knowledgeable guide too :)
