Meet your guide and small group in central London at the pre-arranged time. While walking toward your first stop, take the opportunity to admire such attractions as St. Paul's Cathedral and a one-time Shakespearian playhouse. 

Upon arrival in Blackfriars, one of London's oldest pubs, frequented by many members of London's banking industry who work nearby, order a pint (own expense) and listen as your guide recounts tales of the local neighborhood.

Drink up and head onward to Fleet Street, famously the center of Britain's journalism industry for a drink at a local boozer. Then, 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.

Your tour ends at Covent Garden with plenty of time (and inside tips) to continue the fun at another local pub.

I’m not sure what you mean. Are asking if there are a minimum amount of people that have to book with you?
