What a great historical tour with the most knowledgeable guide
every moment was memorable. Could have spent hours with Michael, our tour guide. This private tour is the way to go. Michael is so very knowledgeable and did not mind questions. Made the tour very interesting. Let us ask as many questions as we wanted (and my husband had lots). Loved it, loved it, loved it. And to finish off with Churchill War rooms was great.

One of the Best Tours in London

Historical London Walking Tour in Westminster & Churchill War Rooms Entry
One of the best tours I have ever done. Our guide, Robert, was knowledgeable and passionate about Churchill and history, and the tour was better for it - we were entertained while we learned a lot! The tour ties in Westminster's buildings and their history with Churchill, and then you finish the tour in the museum, where Churchill and his staff actually planned WWII. Absolutely awesome tour - enjoyed it and highly recommend.

London for Kids with Changing of the Guard, Westminster Abbey, Tower of London
Wow! We had the best day with Lucy our tour guide. It was a full day and a lot of walking and sightseeing, but we were so entertained, we barely noticed. We are a family of 5 and our youngest is 9. We toured Westminster Abbey, we watched part of the changing of guards ceremony and toured the Tower of London. Lucy not only gave us a tour of these amazing places she made it fun and she answered all our crazy questions. I would absolutely recommend this tour!

Witty, knowledgable guide who took us off the beaten path.

Westminster Walking Tour & Westminster Abbey Entry
Well done, Christopher. After spending a good few days exploring Westminster through various means, we were expecting "a lot of the same" for this tour. We were wrong...we ventured off the beaten path, got some great stories dating back hundreds of years, and learned plenty of new great Westminster facts. The sites/sights are outstanding, everything I'd imagined over the last 30+ years. Great experience!

Historical London Walking Tour in Westminster & Churchill War Rooms Entry
Interesting to go back in time and see Churchill war headquarters. My grand son enjoyed to see the guards on the horses. But a lot of walk and I expected to see Westminster which we didn’t.

Tour of Westminster and Tower Bridge

Explore Tower Bridge & Westminster Walking Tour
Our tour guide was very informative in sharing his history knowledge with plenty of humour. Was a great experience. My nearly 10 year old also thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated all he'd learnt on our tour of Westminster. The Tower Bridge experience was a delightful surprise, as we weren't aware of what would be made available and the amount there was for us to see!! We thoroughly enjoyed.

Westminster 3 Hour Walking Tour & Visit Churchill War Rooms
Our tour guide was excellent and we were afforded a view at the end of the changing of the guards at Buckingham palace that few people ever see. He was knowledgeable and did a great job showing us the sights. Final drop off at the Churchill war rooms was great, we had scheduled entry time and were able to go through the exhibits at our own pace. Highly recommend this tour.

Westminster Walking Tour & London Eye Ticket
Our guide for the tour, Jason, made history come alive with thorough explanations and insights. His passion for the sights we saw was evident and his stories helped us to understand what we were seeing. He knew the perfect spots to stand to see the changing of the guards and was happy to take pictures of all on the tour for us.
