We TRULY enjoyed our afternoon with Jane. She is warm, gracious, funny, knowledgeable, and well able to manage far reaching conversations about beer, Brexit, history, and politics. The pubs were intimate, gorgeous, and the beer outstanding. (JAIPUR IPA - YUM) We learned about beer, had a refreshing glimpse into London’s pub culture, and Jane also make recommendations for the rest of our trip which were spot on. At the end of the day I felt I had made a friend. Highly recommend. FAVORITE Pub “Ye Old Mitre”

With all the entertainment options and historical sites in this amazing city, why not combine them into this not-to-be-missed activity? With SAM as your guide, your entire life’s quota of laughter will be met in just one afternoon. What a hoot ! My passport has so many London stamps in it and yet, I just discovered the real crown jewel of London - this pub crawl. SAM was a total blast. Don’t delay another minute and secure your reservation ASAP- you won’t be sorry! Be warned ...Your abs may take days to recover from the laughter! Cheers !!!

My husband loves craft beer, so for his birthday I booked a private pub tour. Jane was great about tailoring our tour to meet our needs. ( wanted to go to places with unique beers). She also booked us s place to watch the England/Sweden World Cup match after the tour. She is very personable and knowledgeable. Highly recommend!

Jane did a fabulous job on our tour. From our initial meeting (with the help of her emailed photo) to her extensive knowledge of London's pub history and beer in general. I highly recommend Jane for an informative and highly energetic taste of London. SM.

About 3 years ago, I did this pub tour with my boyfriend. Fast forward to June 18, 2019 and I was back in London with my sister and parents and did this tour again. I loved it again and they loved it as first timers...and yes I'd absolutely do this a third time! Everyone in our group likes different beer profiles: super hoppy for my sis, zero hop for my parents and somewhere in the middle for me. Jane knew exactly which brews would work for each of us and didn't disappoint. As I stated in my review 3 years ago, this tour is for small groups only. You will get very descriptive historical insight to the buildings and statues you're seeing as Jane guides you from pub to pub. Once in the pub, Jane will go to the bar and order beers for your group given individual preferences. Then the history of the establishment of the pub begins as you're sipping on your brew. I also mentioned in my original review of this tour to eat a meal prior to your meeting time with Jane. This time we did order some snacks in one of our pubs because we had a little extra time. But expecting to sit down and eat a full meal during this tour is not realistic...unless you're willing to shorten your tour, skip one of the pubs and miss out on the beers therein (no way!).

Wow - Brigette our tour guide on Saturday 25th August for the 2pm walk was full of knowledge, a story to be told @ each pub, great personality and she made it lively.

Our family of 4 had a fantastic afternoon with Jane! From our initial meeting, it was clear that she has a passion for historic pubs, and we learned so much from her during our tour. We loved experiencing the different neighborhood pubs, learning their history, and tasting different beers (all were delicious!). She even helped us plan the rest of our trip - making recommendations of where to stay, restaurants and other sights to see. I would highly recommend including this tour in your visit to London, we can't wait to visit again!

Jane did a great job -- took us to such unique pubs and gave us the history of each. Also knowledgeable about London's history. She was fun to be with!

My wife booked this as a surprise gift for my 40th. We had a great time with Jane who is extremely knowledgeable about the London historic pub scene and the new craft beer offering (which I am really into!). She was a wonderful host, wiling to answer all of our questions and take the time to explain things. We visited 4 pubs in total over a 3 hour period and had a half in each with a bit of walking in between each pub looking at some of the history of London (including where Braveheart was executed. I’ve walked past a hundred times, but never took the time to actually stop and take in the history of the place!). I’d highly recommend the tour, both as a private one to a couple or even as part of a larger group. I can’t wait to do the next one and explore a few more pubs in London.

I have now done this tour with Jane three times, with a fourth already booked. I assure you that you will not be disappointed--Jane is a hoot and you will have a marvelous time on your tour. I have booked this tour for a variety of groups: for a friend visiting from the States, my university aged cousin, my son's 18th birthday, and the upcoming tour I have booked is for a mixed age ladies group, and another one is in the works for a group of lawyers. Everyone I have taken on this tour had a fantastic time and said that this was a highlight of their visit to London. Not only will Jane make sure that you taste some amazing brews, but she is an extensive vat of London history knowledge. Jane will take you to pubs that will become part of your regular pub regime if you are local, and most likely they will be pubs that you've never visited before (even if you are a long time Londoner). Jane also possesses a smart wit, which adds to the fun. I highly recommend that you think about purchasing one of her books during the tour--they make wonderful keepsakes for visitors, or great stocking stuffers.
