Great walk through history at the Churchill War Rooms
The meeting point was well documented and our guide was excellent. There was a moderate amount of walking, but we took it slow with several stops. I found the tour very informative and our guide very knowledgable. Would highly recommend and the Churchill war rooms are a DEFINITE must see for anyone with an interest in history or Churchill. Very well done with many artifacts from the day and informative / interactive displays

Enjoyed this tour very much. I felt like the guide was well informed , kind and attentive. It would have been less meaningful seeing the area on our own. I would definitely recommend it.

Westminster Walking Tour & Westminster Abbey Entry
Tim, our guide was so knowledgeable! He explained the history of places we visited in London and shared lots of interesting trivia too. The pace of the walking tour was perfect and it was fun meeting fellow travelers as we soaked in all the information together. Although my husband and I didn't get to go into the Abbey, we were able to join in on the rest of the walking tour and saw more places than we would have gone to on our own. We 100% recommend this walking tour to everyone!

It was a most enjoyable tour. Our guide was passionate, knowledgeable and entertaining. Our 82 year old did the walk with us but she has no problems with her legs or walking.
