Will Hawkes was not only knowledgeable but just downright charming. Our tour was the best experience so far in London and our best context tour so far. We had a wonderful time.
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.
