The tour guide (Dave) was very friendly and funny, and took us to some very cool and impressive pubs! All in all a very interesting tour :)

Our group of 5 had a wonderful afternoon on our tour with Wil. He was informative, engaging and fun. We explored places we might not otherwise have seen on our visit to London and had a terrific afternoon. Wil was even kind enough to follow up the next day with recommendations for other places for us to see/things to do on our visit. Would highly recommend Liquid History Tours!

Great time! Our guide, Daniel shared so many fun facts and stories about the pubs we visited, but also about the area, the history of the City and the lives of the people at the time. He did of this in a very humous and funny way that kept the entire group laughing and smile the whole time. I was not sure what to expect, but ended the night so glad I booked this tour. It was so much fun!!!

We booked with Liquid History Tours for a private tour because all of the group tours were sold out, and for good reason. It was fantastic. Two things I recommend, if it says likely to sell out - book immediately. The other is, if you can manage it, a private tour is such a luxury. I never would have gone on one (if I hadn’t put booking off for so long), but if your group is at least 6 people the cost difference isn’t that much. Dave was full of fun stories and just the right amount of cheesy jokes. He was attentive to all of us and we had one of the best days of our trip so far. 10/10

Loved this tour. . . we were a group of three and Kevin was fantastic! We learned so much about this history of each of the pubs we visited, including about the local brews and gins. Kevin was engaging, friendly and had a great energy level! He was able to pivot and answered all of our questions. Highly recommend this tour, it was a highlight of our trip to London.

Fantastic tour. Mark was funny and had so much information. This is something you could not do on your own. The saved spots for us and the care of the pubs when we arrived was great.

This tour of London was enjoyed by every member of our group! Literally one of the best things we did in the 3 weeks travelling through Europe. Linden was so informative and we enjoyed spending time with him, hearing all of his fascinating stories. The chosen pubs were absolutely excellent! Well chosen- small and intimate, friendly and welcoming. Our group enjoyed trying the specialty drinks at each bar! This will be something I will do every time I come back to London because it was such a great experience. Well Done Liquid Tours!
