What to Expect
Meet your guide and small group in Central London. Admire such attractions as St. Paul's Cathedral and a one-time Shakespearian playhouse while walking toward your first stop. Order a pint (own expense) in Blackfriars, one of London's oldest pubs, frequented by many members of London's banking industry who work nearby. Listen as your guide recounts tales of the local neighborhood. Then, head to Fleet Street, famously the center of Britain's journalism industry, for a drink at a local boozer. Afterward, slip down a side street into a 17th-century pub. Choose from a wide selection of ales and ciders on tap (own expense) and hear tales of the literary greats who frequented that very space—Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Dickens, and Alfred Tennyson, to name just a few. End your tour at the edged of Covent Garden with plenty of time (and inside tips) to continue the fun at another local pub.

We had an excellent afternoon. Our very knowledgeable and friendly guide gave us lots of local historical info while taking us into some amazing pubs that we would possibly have walked straight past otherwise. Lovely hidden gems. I would definitely recommend this tour.
