We were pleasantly surprised that this was a private tour and my husband and I were the only ones on the tour, which made our time with our tour guide Kevin much more personal and geared toward our own historical interests. We spent nearly 5 hours walking through the City of London learning about historical alleyways, pubs, gin, churches, the government, and monuments. Kevin kept a good pace and was happy to engage us with trivia and tales of history while stopping to break at wonderful pubs that he recommended. His extensive knowledge of the local beers was also very helpful and appreciated, he really enjoys his job and it shows! This tour was on my birthday, and it was better than we could have imagined. Not only did we learn about so much interesting history, it was also a very fun pub crawl! We highly suggest taking this tour, and do yourself a favor and request Kevin!

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip! We were a group of four and our guide, Kevin was super knowledgeable, fun, and all around amazing. Like one of our friends said, it's as if we had just paid a friend to show us around London for a few hours. We went to four different pubs and Kevin was accommodating as we had to get to a play later that day. He even went above and beyond by taking us to the nearest tube station and directed us where to go once the tour was over!

Do not hesitate to book this experience, it was amazing!!

I was disappointed after the Historical pub tour. I had expected an entertaining and fun event, but I found it rather boring. I felt to me like the guide was low of energy. I had difficulties in understanding him. We walked through cosy streets and visited interesting pubs, but the event didn't meet my expectations.
