We went in the afternoon and found that we were in a group of 10 which was a perfect size. The tour guide knew everything and was able to answer all the questions of the group. She was very personable and friendly. When I booked the tour they informed us ahead of time where to park and of that they... More

Had fun on the tour. Pretty interesting place with a long history. Obviously my favourite part was the sampling.

Who knew that Labatt has an impressive 99% waste diversion rate, makes its own hydro and brews dozens of brands? Now I know, after taking the Labatt Brewery tour where we stood under massive vessels holding 8-million bottles worth of beer and saw every aspect of the process. Our tour guide was terrific and we enjoyed the tasting session at... More

We were traveling through on our way home from Toronto. I had heard that the town of London was lovely (and it is!!) and had heard about this tour. I've been on other brewery tours before and this was outstanding!! We were given headsets with transmitters to hear and safety glasses for protection. We were taken into the majority of... More

We went out of our way to go to the tour(100 miles) because my husband likes their beer. When we got there we got a lot of apologies, since some corporate people were in the conference room. We didn't want to tour the conference room, but they would not take us on the tour and told us to come back... More

We toured the brewery on Sept 1/15. We really enjoyed it. Margie, our guide, was very good. Kept us entertained throughout. Great to learn about how Eco-friendly they are. Very interesting from bottles arriving at brewery to going out. The old delivery trucks were beautiful. Only takes a couple hours. Tasting was fun.

The Labatt Brewery tour is excellent! It gives you excellent info on how beer is made, local history, how it changed labour laws and the holidays we have off. Fantastic tour guide takes you through the plant, while providing thorough info. At the end of the tour, it's beer tasting time! Being able to sample different brews, in a room... More

Happened upon this while traveling through Canada and thought why not? We have been to Millers and Coors which are very polished tours in the U.S. This tour was much more down to earth. The guide was very knowledgeable even though it was her first tour. Loved seeing the bottling process. Interesting to note that they reuse all beer bottles... More

Being a beer drinker, I wanted to tour the brewery while in London. It is a "working tour". You are walking along raised platforms and occasionally have to move over for workers passing through. Our tour guide was friendly enough, let us sample the new Raspberry Shock Top. As for those who complain about sampling Budweiser and Bud light- the... More
