We really loved this tour. 4 pubs, 3 of which we'd never been to, with lots of history and fun facts along the way. We bought the book and can't wait to explore more pubs. Thanks very much Ricky and Diggity for looking after us and showing us some wonderful new pubs.

David was great. He has the perfect personality for this type of tour. He was funny and knowledgeable. Despite it being a rainy London day, he made it a lot of fun!

Adam was a fantastic guide. Knowledgeable, and fun! We toured bars and places we would not even have known we wanted to see. Great time, great tour!

This was a very enjoyable afternoon. Our guide Ricky with his dog Diggity was entertaining and informative with a comprehensive knowledge of the history of the buildings their residents along with an impressive expertise on local beer and gin. Very useful on this tour as we stopped at some fabulous old pubs in the city of London which made for a brilliant tour.

Fantastic afternoon with the amazing Ricky and Diggity taking us round some great pubs, and filling our heads with fantastic history of the City. It was our second time doing this tour, (last done 5+ years ago), but with a different guide it is a completely different experience. Would recommend to anyone.
