It was a great tour full of history, commentary, and personalized information. Would recommend for anyone interested in learning more about London history and in visiting pubs.
Personal service and local information was spectacular. My husband and I felt like we were really locals. The pubs we visited all had slightly different flavors and our guide did an excellent job of explaining The history and brews at each location. We would love to do it again!
