Mark our guide was fun and knowledgeable! It was a great group of people. I highly recommend this tour. We would not have seen the pubs we were able to visit and we surely would not have known the history without Mark's knowledge. Great afternoon.

Had an absolute blast. Learned a bunch of fun history, met some great folks, and hit up some historic pubs. Traveling solo, it was wonderful to spend the afternoon with a group of folks and have wonderful conversations and laughs.

Dave was superior…funny, personable and knowledgeable. Made the afternoon thoroughly enjoyable. We could not have asked for a better afternoon enjoying the secret pubs—and history—of London. Highly recommend for anyone with a sense of humor and adventure (and a thirst for great beer)!
