We spent a wonderful evening with Morris during our Covent Garden historic pub tour. Not only did we learn a lot about the history of the area and some of it's notorious pubs, but we also enjoyed the time we were able to spend chatting with Morris about life in London. It was a great way to start our 3 day first time visit to London. We highly recommend this tour!
