We enjoyed this historical tour of London's West End pubs! It was nice to be able to have a glass of wine instead of beer nice I'm not a beer drinker. Everyone else in our group were beer drinkers and they said they enjoyed the experience of the different brews and the history of the making of beer! Loved all the historical pubs and the tidbits of info that we would not have otherwise learned without our amazing tour guide! Thanks for a fun experience!

Our guide was attentive, friendly and full of lots of historical knowledge about the pubs in London, as well as the process of beer making. The only downside is that one of the pubs required that a person be age 21 to enter despite the drinking age being 18. The pub did finally allow my son to enter with the group but it was a bit embarrassing.

The gentleman leading the tour was extremely knowledgeable, personable, and allowed us to really enjoy the tour. The places he took us were not "popular" or "touristy" places, but places that showcased some of the oldest pubs of the area as well as allowed us to sample beers that we otherwise wouldn't have had. Very impressed with the tour!
