This was a great tour. We were hosting American friends around London and thought the tour would be a perfect way to combine history with fun. Adam was an excellent tour guide. Despite horrible weather he kept things moving really well and got lots of information over in an entertaining way. As the pubs visited were really busy, it was really good to have tables reserved. Would thoroughly recommend this tour

Booked this tour as part of a birthday celebration for my partner and it’s the highlight of the weekend. Mike was a fantastic guide, friendly, funny and very knowledgeable. Besides drinking, there’s a lot of fascinating history covered in this tour as well. We actually live in London and have been to a lot of museums and other tours but we learnt quite a few new things on this one. The pubs all have different vibes and the variety of drinks is just overwhelming. If you like history and drinking, this is definitely the tour for you.

Great pub tour! We had a lovely time with our guide Rachel, who was enthusiastic and knowledgeable in regards to the history, cultural context and locations of the great pubs we visited! She was happy to answer any questions we may have had in regards to the pubs, history of London, or even London in general! Thank you Rachel!

I highly recommend this tour! My friend and I were very late due to travel and I messaged the company and they gave us the timeline which allowed us to meet the group at the second stop. Mike welcomed us warmly and was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about London and its history. A wonderful fun tour !
