If you are interested in WW2 history especially from the British perspective then take this tour. The guide is fantastic and after an entertaining hour walking around Big Ben, Westminster, Whitehall etc getting a handle on the history, politics and landmarks, he graciously drops you off outside the entrance to the Bunker where Churchill conducted the war effort during WW2. You should spend at least an hour or two under there given it has a fantastic little museum dedicated to WW2 and Winston Churchill's life.

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!
