This tour was incredible! Our guide offered a wealth of knowledge, ranging from spooky stories to bizarre historical anecdotes, and took us to some of the best London pubs I've ever been to. We had the opportunity to sample gin, ale, and classic English snacks such as Scotch eggs, and every place we went to had a fantastic ambiance and was not overcrowded. John, our guide, was charismatic, friendly, and made this experience incredibly fun. Highly recommended!
This tour was so much more than I expected. Chris, our guide was amazing. He was a history major at university and has also worked in the beer business as a brewer and a consultant. I think I learned more about London History on this tour than any other I have taken. I have rave reviews and highly recommend this tour!

I had such an awesome time on this tour. Our guide John was hilarious, and the pubs we visited were among London’s finest. We went to a pub that Shakespeare used to live above, popped into Samuel Johnson’s old local, and had a pint in the former Law Courts branch of the Bank of England. We also saw loads of quirky historical sites and some unusual street art along the way. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone visiting London or to locals who love uncovering new sides to the city.
We had such a great time with our tour guide Chris. He was very personable and gave us interesting tidbits about the area and pubs we went to. Nice group of people!
Perfect experience! John was a great tour guide and the pubs were excellent choices!
If you like to hear a bit about the local sites and history this is a great way to experience that. We walked through areas that we would have never know were there. We managed to get 5 pubs in our tour and had a wonderful time. Get a bite to eat before you go as there is not really enough time to try and eat at the pubs.
John was extremely animated and an awesome guide! I could not believe all the stories told and the pubs we visited. You will not be disappointed!
John was amazing and we absolutely loved this tour. Easy, relaxed and an absolute hoot! The pubs were places off the beaten track that tourists wouldn't find easily and the locals go to. Would highly recommend!

We had an absolutely great time during this tour. Our guide, John, was a wonderful guide and provided so many historical details and stories. He took us to places we would never have found for ourselves. This is a great tour and marvelous way to spend an afternoon. Don't miss it.
It was a great afternoon - our guide was fun and shared lots of interesting history facts with us.
We started out on time and soon realized this was going to be an amazing journey. George was so excited to be showing us his city. We were suppose to be 2 hours but 3 1/2 hours later we were still going which was a shame because we had to leave to meet other arrangements. I would recommend this to any one but give yourselves more time.
Everyone interested in some humourous banter, meeting new people, learning some history and of enjoying a beer in an afternoon should do this tour. We all know there are a lot of pubs in London but these were off the beaten track, quirky, historical and very diverse. Excellent!
This was the best tour I've had on this vacation. Our tourguide, John, was incredibly fun, friendly and knowledgeable. Absolutely 5 stars!
We loved our guide Roo and her knowledge about the pubs. The people in our group were delightful. The choice of pubs was excellent. It was a wonderful way to spend our first full day in London. I highly recommend the experience. LG
We really enjoyed the Pub Walking Tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and knew a lot of fun facts that made the trip both very interesting and entertaining. He showed us some hidden corners of London that we would have never found on our own. Great tour and I highly recommend it. It was a wonderful ending to our Europe trip.
George, our guide, was knowledgable and entertaining. We visited areas and pubs tucked away and some I wouldn't have entered otherwise. The pubs were so surprisingly beautiful inside. Thanks George

We loved doing this tour. Our guide was so knowlegdable and talked about many things along the way that we passed. We wojld never have found these amazing old pubs by ourselves.
Loved getting the history of the area and pubs. You may not see the ancient streets we walked on if not for the great tour guide.
Rue was AWESOME!! She was our guide and was very entertaining, educational and funny! We went to at least 7 different pubs and my daughter and I made a point to try a different ale or 2 at each. This is a great way to see central London and have fun at the same time. The pubs Rue brought us to were beautiful, I highly recommend this tour!
The guide was very knowledgeable, funny and friendly. The sites were great, fabulous pubs, and lots of significant historical monuments along the way. Overall fantastic experience.
Great to see the history of the pubs. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and a great group of people we met
A fantastic day out. Walked through parts of London would never expect to see. Loved the Cockfighter Pub and the different pubs we visited. Would highly recommend this trip to every London visitor
This was by far our best day during our 7 night trip between Paris and London. Our guide, John, was hilarious and so knowledgeable. He felt like a close friend within the first couple of minutes! We started off near St. Paul's, where he gave us a little history on the Great Fire. We were able to make it to six pubs in total our group was small, all very different with great history. From the smaller, local pubs to the large, beautiful, historic ones, we enjoyed every minute! Our favourites were the Cock Pit, the Black Friar gorgeous building and the Old Bank of England. We even went back to one, the Ship's Tavern, for dinner that night. We ordered a half-pint at each bar, which was the perfect amount to hang out for about 15-20 minutes, and kept the tour very affordable only spending about 4 pounds per person at each pub. Between each pub, we learned about the area and its history - we loved walking through Shakespeare's footsteps, wandering through the legal sector, and seeing iconic spots featured in movies. This tour was incredibly fun and well worth the price!!
By far, our favorite tour EVER. Our tour guide made the entire experience so much fun with his knowledge and enthusiasm for every site. He did a superb job including every member of the group and made sure everyone was safe and enjoying their experience. We learned so much history about each pub and the London area, which was exactly what we were hoping for. Kudos for finding the perfect guide! We want HIS job!
