We highly recommend if you're looking to experience pub culture in London! We found ourselves laughing and having a blast, while also learning and getting a history lesson at the same time!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That's the idea, some real history but lots of fun too :) Thanks for the review Liem. Your family were a blast. I could have stayed chatting all night. Thanks again, Simon

Michael BehrensUnited States
Simon was wonderful! He custom made a tour for us that included the sights and pubs we wanted to see. His knowledge of London both past and present is superb! He even remembered it was our anniversary and had a card for us! We would definitely recommend Simon for a tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael. You were both great fun! It's always such a joy to share our great pubs with people who really appreciate them. I hope your anniversary meal went well. Here's to many more happy years together for you both.

Really interesting tour! We took this tour on our first day of a week in London. Simon is very knowledgeable and personable. It was like spending time with a friend! Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Julie. It's mutual, I only wish I could have come on more of your pub visits that week!

Simon was welcoming, friendly, flexible, professional, and full of information that he shared in a fun manner. He was willing and able to accommodate for the make up of our group. He will modify the tour to meet the preferences of your group. We would recommend Simon for a relaxed, informative, and fun tour experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Jennifer. I had a lot of fun with you too! It was great to meet your sons and to spend some time with you all here. I hope to see you again in London.
Anderson TingleyUnited States
Simon is a great guide. He is engaging and very easy to spend time with. He took my college age sons and me on an interesting pub tour. We learned lots of interesting London facts that had nothing really to do with kings and queens, which my boys loved. He showed us some fun and funky spots in neighborhoods we hadn't known about which was an added bonus to our week in London. I would recommend Simon for any kind of tour he offers especially if you have young adults tagging along with you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Anderson. You guys were fun to hang out with too! Lovely to meet you and enjoy the rest of your stay in London. Thanks again for the review.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks David. An absolute pleasure spending the evening with you!
Great tour! A lively and entertaining slice of life in London, with some great insights into the history and architecture of the city and its pubs. Any time you can learn, laugh, and have a few (half) pints along the way is a great time for me. Thanks Simon. (Full disclosure: I am a ToursByLocals employee. I kept this secret from Simon until the end of the tour, though).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks! Great to meet you. Glad I came up to scratch :)
Jan CoxGilbert, AZ, United States
The absolutely best Tour I have ever taken. Love Simon. Posted his picture and praise on Facebook to my friends. Lovely! Brilliant!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jan! Thanks for your lovely words. It was just a shame we didn't have time for more of your stories from the Civil Rights era in the 60s. I love this job - I get to meet so many interesting (and lovely!) people. Hope to see you over this way again.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Glad to hear you had a wonderful time with Simon in London! Pop by and visit our Facebook page sometime - we'd love to see the photos too! :) www.facebook.com/toursbylocals

What great fun by a great guide. Enjoyable interesting and a way to see some pubs you wouldn't know to go to. A little history, some variety and a good time had by all!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Frank! It was great to meet you guys and hear your stories too. I loved your son's enthusiasm for the wonderful world of beer and I was impressed by his wide knowledge. Cheers!
