We visited places we never would have found on our own and discovered a new favorite ale in London. We feel like true Londoners.

We had a lovely time with Jane. It is not a tour about the beer, but a tour about the pubs. The pubs all had interesting histories and Jane is very knowledgeable. It was like spending the afternoon drinking with an old friend. Also, it's a great walk through neighborhoods you might not otherwise experience.

One of our best tours, especially with our guide Jane Preyton. She brought us to all historic bars we wwould never find by ourselves. We enjoyed hearing the story of bars, tasting different beers in every bar, and taking photos everywhere. Thank you Viator for this tour, and thank you Jane for your frienship in this 3h30 tour.
