Hidden London Walking Tour

Great walking history tour of London pubs with friends. I was visiting friends that recently moved to London and we decided this would be the perfect Sunday afternoon activity. We learned some history, enjoyed some pints, and socialized with the tour guide and other fellow tourists. It was a lovely afternoon!

Our guide, Chris, was very knowledgeable and a lot of fun. We hit bars that most tourists might not find and had some good beer.

Great tour guide as he was very knowledgeable and approachable. The pubs were great as well! Loved the monk Yoda!

Amazing tour and very worthy, you guy must try it for the first time in London
