Booked an evening tour for 11 members of a Senior Management Team. The feedback was amazing, they all thoroughly enjoyed it and only had great praise for the tour guide, Morris.

Great tour lead by a very humble Mr Jones! Visited 4 of most rated pubs in London including one rebuilt after the Great fire of London. What an amazing way to see London and have a drink at the same time. Thanks!

Probably the Fleet Street tour, as it includes the oldest pub in London plus the pub with the oldest interior in London, plus loads of local London history, plus excellent variety of real ales.
