What a great tour this was and an amazing guy Obi is. I've been living in London for 9 years and never saw Brixton this way. He is born and bread Brixton. Has great passion for the area and the culture it represents. Knows every one. And certainly knows the best spots for great food. It's not just a food tour. It is history, culture, story of change and creating small communities in itself with Obi followers. 😆 I can't believe this is the only Afro-carabean food tour in London. Thanks Obi for the great tome, sharing your story and making us falling in love with Brixton.

Let me just start with saying this was an excellent tour from start to finish, taking in a couple of great hours across Brixton Market with an excellent and engaging host (Obi), packed with amazing stories, great company, and absolutely delicious African and Caribbean cuisine courtesy of some of Brixton's finest spots. Obi highlighted and gave voice to Brixton's storied history and culture along the way, in the way that only a life-long resident of the community and the neighbourhood born and bred can, with passion, warmth, genuineness. Highlighting landmarks and key-spots that would be easily invisible without a local guide, Obi's personal connection and love for his neighbourhood shone through across the tour. He was the perfect guide throughout, making sure everyone was having the best time. The food itself... what can I say, as we stopped off at eateries and stalls, this was wonderful - Puff-Puff (what a discovery!), Jollof Rice, Jamaican Patties, in particular stood out for me. As previous reviews have mentioned, if taking the afternoon tour, to get the best out of it, it's probably wise to approach it with an empty stomach, as the food is delicious, and exceptionally filling and plentiful. I would recommend this tour highly, and would do it again in a heartbeat - Thanks Obi!

Food tour was great. Our local expert Obi was authentic and genuine. The atmosphere made me feel like i was home. Brixton is a food haven. It was great to go to another country and get authentic Caribbean food. Finally got to try jallof rice and it did not disappoint. Now i know where to go for jamaican food when i come back to London. Thank you Obi.

A very nice way to begin this weekend trip in London. Obi is a wonderfull person with passion for what he is doing. His foodtour was excellent, his presence is just as important as the food itself. His fam plays a big part in the growth of Brixton. I never really knew a lot about London but now I know more things about Brixton than my own hometown thanks to this tour. 😄 Nice food and a nice group. The love and connection with each other is felt on this tour. Definitely a splendid experience! No regrets on my end and I will definitely do this again when coming back.
