We were looking for something different for our London tour and Ales and Pubs fit the bill perfectly. A different part of London (south of the Thames and off the beaten tourist path) and a different focus - beer and ale and their impact on London yesterday and today. And of course the tasting! Our docent Will Hawkes was engaging and knowledgeable. All in all, a great experience.
Good all around.
Even though it was an appropriately dreary day in London with a soaking rain, the tour was excellent. We were introduce to a very cool neighborhood and learned a ton about the history of brewing in London. We're still talking about it all these months later. Scouted great locations, really felt like an insider's tour.
