Our tour guide Julia City Wonders UK met us just outside Westminster tube station across from Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. It was a rainy day and we weren't sure if the tour was going to continue but through rain or shine, it did go on. Julia was very knowledgeable about World War II information considering that her native country is Austria! We would have liked to go inside Westminster Abbey as part of this tour instead of just stopping on the outside. However, the stops to House of Parliament, Big Ben, St. Margaret's Church, Cenotaph, Women in War Memorial, 10 Downing Street,Banqueting House, Horse Guard Parade, and the highlight of the tour, Churchill War Rooms made this tour a very informative history lesson on Churchill's role in WWII. Highly recommended for history buffs!
One of the most amazing tours and museum I have ever been to.
This tour was wonderful. It was easy to meet up with the group, and the size of the group was just right. Our guide was knowledgeable, funny and kept the tour moving on time. He filled on the back story of London's WW II experience with important details about London's history. You don't have to have extensive knowledge of events beforehand to enjoy the tour. The only issue we had was a bit of a kink with the guide's microphone, which he fixed immediately.
even though it was raining off and on, good walking tour. Could have spent more time in the museum but it was closing
Very knowledgeable guide great sense of humor a lot of information in a short period of time.
This was a great tour and very interesting. The guide was excellent and I lernt a lot about Churchill. The war rooms were fascinating
Very extensive 2 hour walking tour arriving at the War Rooms at 4pm. We then had until it closed at 6pm to view the rooms. They were most interesting but unfortunately we had to rush through the end due to losing track of time. Really enjoyable.
Great tour and great guide. A bit rushed because of heavy rain. But very interesting, thank you.
The meeting-place instructions weren't as clear as they needed to be. The guide seemed knowledgeable but was American-peppy and not an authentic Brit. She was difficult to keep up with and did not provide photo pauses or a toilet break, turning a long walk into a physical ordeal.
Not good. No body showed up.
Guide was excellent - very informative. War rooms were better than expected.
Augusta was fantastic! She was an excellent guide, giving clear historical perspective to the events surrounding WWII and Winston Churchill. We took an easy stroll around the outside of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Whitehall and ended up in the war bunker used by Churchill and his staff. Augusta's personality and approach were highly entertaining and very informative. We would very much recommend this tour to those wanting to discover a more in-depth examination of London's role during WWII.
Josh was great as a guide informative, friendly and funny. Loved the miked headsets...they worked perfectly.
The Churchill Bunker tour was extremely fascinating and the Museum itself is very impressive. It was definitely worth seeing. There was so much to see and learn. But, the most impressive part of our tour was our wonderful tour guide, Kieran from City Wonders. Kieran was just the best tour guide ever. He was so knowledgeable, so excited about the subject matter and it was very obvious that he really knew his stuff and had a strong personal interest because he did not sound like a boring guide book. The next time we go back to London, we are only taking tours that Kieran is leading. I hope Kieran is still at City Wonders next summer. Thank you again, Kieran for a wonderful London experience.
Robert was an excellent tour guide and provided excellent information. He ably got us through the crowds on sidewalks and crossing streets! But, because of ALL the crowds, we had to wait to enter the Churchill War Rooms and it was difficult to see the exhibits. This definitely was not the fault of the tour company. London in the summer is a bit crazy!
Good tour. Interesting places.
The tour guide was knowledgeable and although tired from just arriving in London - was worth it!
A great way to walk around Whitehall with listening to some history that is little known. The war rooms were very interesting and the interactive personal devices allowed you to do this at your own pace. Well worth the 3 hours
This was a great tour around Big Ben, Westminster, Churchill War Museum and more. Augusta, our guide, was wonderful! She was knowledgeable and her enthusiasm made the tour enjoyable. She gave us lots of well and also little known facts throughout the tour and was open at all times to any questions.
Really enjoyed the tour. Augusta was most helpful and very well informed. She's a mine of information.
This tour was amazing!
Great tour and really good tour guide. Unfortunately we had to wait to get in for almost 30 minutes due to a fire alarm.
It was like the buildings came alive through the stories behind the sites and I couldn't have asked for more. It is one thing to see the sites, it is another to have a great tour guide, James, who walked you through the significance of each site. We had a great time.
This tour was amazing!
It was not clear where to meet, we finally saw a man holding a very small orange flag standing by a black statue. We missed part of the tour, so did another couple. The meeting location needs to be much clearer with a flag that signifies the tour
