Our tour guide, forgot his name, was pretty amazing for this. Overall, it was a comprehensive tour that covered many cool things with just the right amount of helpful background and with enough time for you to explore the Churchill War Rooms at your own pace.
Really enjoyed this tour--wished the walking portion could have lasted longer-the guide was wonderful. The war rooms were great too. Would definitely recommend
This was an excellent excursion. The guide was both personable and knowledgeable. He related many heretofore unknown facts about the area around Westminster. The Churchill War Rooms and Museum were very interesting and skipping the entry line was a bonus. Highly recommended, although the weather was not ideal!
This was a remarkable tour. We especially liked the war rooms. The guide was knowledgeable and answered questions.
Jason our tour guide was very informative, courteous and friendly. It was our introduction to London and we are impressed. The Churchill war rooms were extremely interesting and would recommend to anyone who enjoys history.
Need to allow a lot of time to explore the war rooms.
Best part of this tour was the Churchill War Rooms. Incredible history !!!

Excellent tour with much to see and learn! Our guide Amber, was a well read student of Churchill so she had extra interesting tidbits to add during our walking tour prior to going to the Churchill War Rooms. Such as pointing out German bomb shrapnel marks on Parliaments foundation. She was great!
I enjoyed this Tour! I was by myself since my Husband was working and met 12 others that were excited to learn more about Winston Churchill. Our guide was amazing!! He was able to talk to us for almost 2 hours non-stop about historical facts about WWII and Winston Churchill. He orated our way thru Parliament Square and shared many facts I had never heard before nor had paid any attention to until he pointed these things out. The weather was raining on/off and he took that into account and tried to keep us dry. If you go, make sure you pack an umbrella and rain coat!! The War Rooms was so cool!! You could spend all day in there reading and interacting with all the hands-on museum displays.
Joshua was our guide. Amazing young man. He was very knowledgeable. Josh gave us real insight into this historic area. The headsets were very helpful and allowed us to hear every word. Kudos ! The Churchill War Rooms were incredible. It was like stepping through a door into World War II. Highly recommend.
Josh was an amazing an entertaining guide. He was very knowledgeable and made the tour fantastic! The Churchill War Rooms are a must see!
This was a fantastic WW2 walking tour of London. We were fortunate to have just our party of four with James the tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and provided colorful background to all the featured sights. The Churchill War Rooms are simply amazing - the audio guide is a very satisfactory method for the tour. Would recommend highly
Very well done. After the walking tour leave plenty of time to cover everything in the War Rooms.
Augusta was an awesome guide. She was knowledgable and eager to share her knowledge. And she made our entry to the Churchill War Rooms easy as can be. Highly recommend this tour.
Our guide was Phil and the group was very small that day 4 of us so that was a plus. The guide did a great job of explaining the difference between the City of London and the City of Westminster and then gave background info prior to walking us to the war rooms where you bypass the ticket line, of course. There we did an audio tour on our own which was quite good. Would recommend this tour to anyone!
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!
Guide was excellent - very informative. War rooms were better than expected.
This was a very informative tour with an engaging tour guide. Our whole family enjoyed the tour and learning about Churchill. The War Rooms Museum was the perfect ending and kept our interest for another hour or more.
Our guide was very good, very knowledgeable, and the very best thing about this tour versus others we took in Edinburgh and Dublin, were the hearing devices they give you so that you can hear the guide clearly thruout no matter where you are standing in the group. These were terrific! Its a great way to learn a lot about the Westminster area in a short time. The War Rooms are great too and we loved the audio guides for this. Well worth the time and the money. We area family of five, including three college aged kids, and were there over Christmas holidays.
I'm a big Churchill fan and thought the War Rooms were great! Even better than the actual War Rooms was the Churchill Museum which is attached to the War Rooms. Our guide, Augusta, was fabulous! She was extremely knowledgeable and I felt like she loved guiding the tour as much as we enjoyed following and listening. Thank you Augusta!
Excellent tour with very knowledgeable guide. The Churchill War Rooms are filled with memorabilia and interesting information about Churchill and WW II. The museum really captures the gravity faced by the leaders of Britain and the people of London during the war. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting London.
The WWII Historical Walking Tour in London: Churchill War Rooms and Westminster was fascinating. Being able to go below to where Churchill and his staff worked during the war was educational at the least. Appreciated everything that was presented to us while on this tour. Will remember it and the details for a long time.
The tour guide was extremely brilliant and thorough about the time period and events. He made one comfortable to ask any questions along the way. He shared his obvious enthusiasm throughout the time we had to tour the area and war rooms. This was a must tour for me, and the first selected prior to arrival in London. Would strongly recommend tour and guide for anyone with interest in London during the Blitz.
Great pass! MAde things much easier. Be sure to check out the booklet they give you. We found some true gems in there that you wouldnt think of otherwise. e.g. Churchill's war rooms and the church where William Penn was baptized..( cool for us being from Pennsylvania)
This was a great way to access the many and varied attractions London has to offer. We purchased a 3 day pass but had to use this pass for 3 consecutive days. It would be of more benefit, less tiring and more flexible if the 3 days could be spread over 5 days as other overseas passes offer. Maybe also 5 days over 7 days etc. This would make the pass more useful in inclement weather. Despite this, the huge number of attractions offered are still more than one could possibly visit and do. In most instances, apart from the London Zoo, the quality of the attractions were outstanding, eg Tower of London, Churchill War Rooms, Kew Gardens, St Pauls Cathedral. The ease of use of the pass - easily recognized and accepted without question. We will certainly buy this pass again on our return visit.
We would like to commend the organizers of this Pass as the selection of attractions were first class.
