Overview
With more than 3,000 pubs to choose from, it's often difficult to decide exactly which one to visit in London. Tick off some of the city’s most interesting public houses on a private tour, during which you’ll receive the undivided attention of your personal guide, a British pub expert. Stop at pubs that date back to medieval and Victorian times, and enjoy a small glass of beer in each.

Jane did a fabulous job on our tour. From our initial meeting (with the help of her emailed photo) to her extensive knowledge of London's pub history and beer in general. I highly recommend Jane for an informative and highly energetic taste of London. SM.
