Wonderful tour. Jane was so knowledgeable and friendly. She took her time with us and was able to answer all of our questions. She knew the history of each pub and shared the history of the parts of London we walked through to each pub.Book this tour. You will not be disappointed.
Our guide Jane was wonderful, informative and gave us the local feel in the tour. We went to popular spots and the less known. Jane had a great knowledge of the area, the history and most important the beer and the pubs! Loved 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.
We had a marvelous time touring the old pubs, learning something of the history and enjoying the ale. We would recommend this tour if you want to encounter some of the character of London's past as well as its present.
