Mark was great. Informative and entertaining. Great way to spend the afternoon in London. Visited four great pubs with outstanding beer and gin - along with fascinating history, Mark was a great guide, sharing the history, the stories, and recommendations on libations.

Adam was fantastic, besides the fact we went to a lot of nice places, he showed us the alleys in London which you wouldn’t come across while strolling around in London. A synaptic man with a lot of knowledge! Really recommendable

My family did a walking tour with Mark Wimmers in October and it was everything we hoped it would be. Mark is a great guide with a huge amount of facts in his head. He was patient, informative, personable, and kind. What a great way to see London and learn about its (liquid) history. The four pubs we went to were wonderful. Two of them also featured gin (in addition to English beer) which was fun to learn about and drink!

Our large family gathering had a fantastic time exploring London with Adam! His knowledge and passion for the city’s history kept everyone from young adults to elderly engaged. Adam expertly managed our large group, ensuring everyone felt included and comfortable throughout the tour. His storytelling brought the city’s past to life, mixing famous landmarks with hidden gems. His kindness and patience made our day not just educational, but incredibly fun too. Highly recommend Adam for any large group seeking a memorable and enjoyable London experience!

Mark was an amazing guide with a great sense of humor and great knowledge of London’s pubs, London history and its traditions. He took us to four pubs and gave provided the history of each along with a chance to sample a selection of beers and gin. Not being a beer or gin drinker I had my doubts but Mark convinced me to try a gin drink and what an experience. I am totally a convert!! Have some fun and book this unique tour. I am so glad that I did!

Great time with our guide named Wil. Got to see a lot of the cute back alleys and old pubs. He gave us lots of tips for our trips and was very kind!

Whoops, looks like something went wrong.
