I booked the tour spontaneously on Monday and it was the best decision. We did the tour yesterday with Dave. He is a witty Irish storyteller! We had the best time with him and our group was lovely too! It was more about funny facts and figures around the history of the places we went, more than I had expected. Loved it! I would do it all over again, so thank you Dave for the lovely experience. 🤗 And thanks for the dinner recommendations! Luisa

Took this tour for the second time on Tuesday, September 13, and it did not disappoint. Our guide Lyndon was very funny and informative as we weaved in around the streets of London, stopping at some truly wonderful pubs that you would not normally go to. All of the pubs we amazing places steeped in history . Such a great tour!

Could not fault the whole experience. From start to finish Dave was an awesome guide, friendly, engaging and entertaining. The 4 pubs we visited were steeped in so much history it was almost overwhelming. Highly recommend this tour. Went to The George for dinner afterwards on Dave's recommendation and it was perfect!

Took this tour on Thursday 22nd September and we absolutely loved it. My brother in law and I, who are both Londoners, went on this tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Rob was our guide and we found him to be both knowledgeable and friendly. Not only did he know about London but also the beers. The good and the bad. We know a lot about London Pubs be he told us things we didn't know. Looking to book for a party of work friends in the near future. I don't mind, I would do this tour once a week.

The pub tour was fantastic! I liked that they kept the groups small and that we got to try a variety of pubs. We met people from all over the world which added to the experience..

We had the good fortune of touring with Will, who had great historic knowledge of the four pubs we visited - and knew a hung or two about beer. Also, we enjoyed our fellow tour-mates. Lots of laughs and conversation. The pubs were terrific and the beer was too. I highly recommend this tour.

A group of us traveled to the U.K. for a wedding and we decided to try this pub tour and we were not disappointed! We had a wonderful time from start to finish. Our tour guide was fun, knowledgeable and friendly. We got a lot of fun history as we walked to amazing pubs that we would not have stumbled into otherwise. Don’t hesitate to book! It was one of our favorite London experiences.
