Gourmaze adventure around London and enjoy tasty treats

If you are coming down to London and are looking at taking a tour, forget hopping on & off a tour bus, or booking a guided tour as Gourmaze will take you on an adventure like no other.

Booking The Sweet Escape adventure with Gourmaze I began to think of adventures taken by Hansel & Gretel, Alice of Wonderland and Sarah of Labyrinth. Why you might wonder? Well heading on up from the underground of Tottenham Road following General Tasty instructions via my phone, I took on a trip of wonder full of surprises as I trotted around London with my friends. With time ticking we tracked along a maze of roads, solved riddles and enjoyed sweet sugary treats.

This adventure with Gourmaze was fab and in my opinion the best way to explore London and discover some great hidden gems be it with friends & family or just by yourself.

I was gifted this experience on a PR basis courtesy of Gourmaze which I enjoyed along with some of my friends and members of my LPUL Community Club.
