An absolute must - Wonderful tour! Very informational lead up to visiting the Churchill War Rooms museum. Our guide, Jeremy, was fantastic and provided great context for Churchill and WWII, along with interesting facts for buildings we passed. He was very knowledgeable and we could have listened to him talk all day!! Highly recommend this tour if you’re considering visiting the Churchill War Rooms.

An awesome tour with a wonderful guide - This was just a lovely tour. I highly recommend it if you are interested in learning about the history of London in WW2. Our guide Nathan was amazing. He is very passionate about the subject. Nathan didn’t just tell the fact, but also added his opinion about how history is made in general, which was very educational. His view was very important for me, because it adds a lot of perspective to understanding history. Really appreciated the time in this tour.

Fun and Enlightening Afternoon! - Our tour guide Nathan was very engaging and provided much insight into WW2 in London and the life of Winston Churchill. If you are a Churchill fan, we would highly recommend this tour. The walking tour lasted about 90 minutes and then you have time to visit the Churchill War Rooms and Museum on your own with an audio guide.
