Our guide, Pepe, made the tour informative and fun. In spite of being a busy day in the City, NYE, he kept the group safely to the Churchill bunkers. The self guided tour was quite interesting.

Westminster Walking Tour & Visit The Tower of London
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.

Westminster 3 Hour Walking Tour & Visit Churchill War Rooms
I went on a tour with Chris (and a group) around Westminster on August 15, 2021. Let me just say that Chris is THE MAN. Such an amazing tour guide and everything you could want--between the immense knowledge, funny banter, and great route, not to mention that he seemed to immediately know everybody by name and would have conversations on a personal level between stops. I do tours pretty regularly, and this one not only sits at the top, but it might be the first time I've ever gone out of my way to write a review for one. Book it and I promise you won't regret it.

Westminster Walking Tour & Westminster Abbey Entry
This was a great way to see all of the highlights of Westminster in a few hours and spend as much time as we wanted at Westminster Abbey. We’ve been to London before but our guide, Chris, made the tour so much more interesting and fun. Great pace and we learned a bunch, Chris was the best—would definitely recommend!

Westminster 3 Hour Walking Tour & Visit Churchill War Rooms
Chris was the guide and his knowledge of the area and the places that he took us to visit was excellent. We were a group of about 15, from memory there was 3 people from the USA, A couple from Poland and the rest from the UK. The knowledge of the people within the group was very good also so this added to the experience. The highlight was the Churchill war rooms which we included as part of our tour whilst the rest of the party continued their tour. All in all an excellent 5.5 hours spent thanks to Chris and the wonderful group that we shared our day with. We highly recommend this tour.

Historical London Walking Tour in Westminster & Churchill War Rooms Entry
Wonderful tour. Guide was well informed and interjected humor where appropriate. The churchill Wonderful tour. The guide was well informed. The group was just the right size so that everyone had ample opportunity to ask questions. The Churchill War Rooms were awe inspiring. Could really picture the activities going on in those desperate times. Recommending to friends as a must experience activity.
