Jane was an insightful and delightful host/guide. I learned a great deal about pubs, beer and old London and had a lot of fun doing it.

Our private tour of the London pubs made us feel like real insiders. Jane our guide had very interesting stories to tell in each location – about architecture, history, scandals and of course the beer. We visited places we never would have found on our own and discovered a new favorite ale in London. We feel like true Londoners.

We had a lovely time with Jane. It is not a tour about the beer, but a tour about the pubs. The pubs all had interesting histories and Jane is very knowledgeable. It was like spending the afternoon drinking with an old friend. Also, it's a great walk through neighborhoods you might not otherwise experience.

Very pleasant and knowledgeable guide. We went to 5 pubs ( 4 for drinks) and all were unique and would have been hard to find in the 3-4 hours of this tour.

One of our best tours, especially with our guide Jane Preyton. She brought us to all historic bars we wwould never find by ourselves. We enjoyed hearing the story of bars, tasting different beers in every bar, and taking photos everywhere. Thank you Viator for this tour, and thank you Jane for your frienship in this 3h30 tour.
