Great pub crawl! On a very cold night we were warmed by great company and a guide who made everyone feel welcome and warm. Visited 4 historic pubs and got an interesting history lesson in each pub. Our guide/host works for the Nat'l Park Service and was very knowledgable.

Conor was awesome! My wife and I enjoyed trying the different beers and learning "the rest of the story" of what we learned in high school history. It was a lighter version of the show Drunken History. Well worth the money!
