Dave was So great that he knows the best pubs. Beside the pubs, he gave so much info while we were walking around in london.

Great tour of some historic pubs in London. Our guide, Eileen, was charming, engaging, and genuine. It was great doing a small group tour, we were able to meet people from different parts of the world and enjoy a few pints along the way. The tour also included some sites along the way in between stops that added some interesting history. Would definitely do again next time I am in London.

Myself and 5 friends did this tour which was excellent. Kevin was our guide who made it very interesting not only talking about the pubs but history in the area as well. I would recommend it to anyone even if you don't drink beer.

We took our tour on a Friday afternoon after arriving in London that morning. Dave was super friendly, easy-going, and really helped kick off our trip on the best foot. We had such an enjoyable time and it was one of the best activities that we did on our whole trip! We would recommend this trip to anyone visiting London for looking for a fun afternoon and a different way to explore the city!

David gave us an informed comedy driven tour of London'sbest pub. I would have never found them on my own. His hilarious descriptions made the tour so much fun. Thank you for bringing London to life, Fawn Alpharetta, GA

My wife and I took this tour on the recommendation of a friend. We did look forward to it, but did not let expectations get to high. Our group had 10 members and the guide. We started out at 2pm. The guide gave us historical observations about each pub we visited and places we crossed walking to each pub. We had a good group and there was a lot of socializing. The guide was friendly, personable and a good guide. The pubs were fun and the beer good. several members of our group stayed together for other pubs after the tour ended.

Very informative walk through London City. Our guide Frankie was the best! She kept us informed during the walk and at the pub stops. It was the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Note that a couple of the usual pubs are closed on Sunday, but was great all the same.
