    Surprise gift from children. Really interesting visit to three Cambridge pubs. Lindsey was very knowledgeable and made the experience fun. Just right for a birthday treat. Certainly recommended.

    Brilliant! Lots of fun pub history and wonderful company. Josh is extremely knowledgeable, easy-going, and lots of fun. We had the best evening!!

    A fun and informative afternoon with Josh and Lindsay learning about the origins of pubs in Britain and the history of some in Cambridge. While one of the pubs on the tour was too busy the tour was flexible enough to find its way to another location without affecting the enjoyment. Josh and Lindsay have such interesting stories to tell about pubs, Cambridge, university life and themselves that this quickly became like having a drink with old friends you haven’t seen for a while. We would highly recommend the tour and would even be tempted to book it again the next time we’re in Cambridge just to see how Josh is getting on with his PHD!
