Lyndon was our guide and the tour was exceptional - I didn't expect to learn so much history along the way and he kept it very entertaining and informative between the pub stops. I would definitely recommend it.
Fantastic Ales and Anecdotes!
Chad_H, Apr 2023
Absolute highest recommendation. Adam brought London alive as he weaved historical anecdotes into our journey in and out of 4 lovely traditional pubs. We were fresh off the plane and in need of something to keep our interest and energy up….and this was perfect. The tour quickly felt like a day out with an old friend as Adam was keen to know our interests and backgrounds. My wife and I left agreeing that this was fantastic time and money spent. Will recommend to friends and family. Thank you Adam!

The best! Our guide Dave was brilliant! Super knowledgeable, funny, and friendly. Learned a ton of interesting history about each pub and the surrounding neighborhoods. Our 18 year old son thought the whole experience was “cool”. Thank you Dave!
Ask for Kevin!
Ellen_S, July 2022
Kevin was terrific! A lot of fun facts and four incredibly interesting pubs we never would have found (or known the history) on our own! Loved it! Highly recommend.
Kim_S, July 2022
Our guide Dave was amazing!! So much information/ history on the way to each Pub. Every pub was special, unique. Walking through all the different neighborhoods was cool- we saw so many great sites. The cask beers were great too!!
Great evening out
Jeff_R, July 2022
Our guide Andrew was wonderful. It was the a great walking tour of the area with a great balance of history and beer.
Do it! It was fun and interesting!
Robert_B, July 2022
A great experience! We had so much fun. Freddy, our guide, was outstanding. A great friendly personality. He took us to some amazing bars and gave us a great history lesson on many facets of London. Thank you Freddy.
Andrew was great!
Stacey_W, July 2022
Was really fun... I believe our guide was Andrew, and he did a great job keeping us interested, informed, and "hydrated." We do these a fair amount when we travel and this one was as good as our Munich and Sydney pub tours.
Response from Host, July 2022
What the Dickens! Surely we squeak past Munich (No cask ale or gin) and Sydney...well...what can we say about popping for a pint that dates back to the mid-1500's? Cheers for joining the stroll and staying well hydrated!
