We took this tour at 2 pm on September 7th 2018. This detail is included because I do not recall the guides name but he was excellent. Very informative as we walked the Westminster area. The quality of the head sets we were given to listen to his tour was high. We had fast track access to the War Rooms allowing us to by pass the very long entrance lines.

Although we are Churchill fans, we didn't realize the ENTIRE focus of this Westminster portion of this tour was ALL on Mr. Churchill and some statues in park. No access to even peek in any of the many historic structures.... really didn't need to pre-book with a tour group for the fabulous War Rooms.... that's an easy do-it-yourself.

Georgi did a great job walking us throughout the neighborhood and narrating important aspects of politics, culture, sights, etc... If you are looking for a great 2 1/2 hour learning experience this is your opportunity and she is your guide!

Our guide, Josh, was not only knowledgeable but delightfully entertaining. We would request him again.

For some reason I thought this tour also included a tour inside Westminster Abbey, not just touring the outside areas of Westminster. It was very hot that day and some of the tour was on hard surfaces where the sun was blistering. The tour can't help the weather, it just made it very uncomfortable. Tour guide was good though:)

The very rainy cold 4/8/18 day did not diminish our 1pm tour from being outstanding. Our guide was undaunted as he took us around the area, pointing out all buildings, statues and especially all things Churchill. He clearly knows his city's political history and shared it well. He was open to questions, sharing information on the architecture and the activities in these important buildings. He gave us all the heads up we were needed for our entry into and tour of the Churchill War Rooms. This was a private entrance with no crowds. They tell quite a story and at the end of it all, we felt we had quite an impressive education about the period. This tour is packed with information and our guide was very good at providing both concise but important facts and details. A thoroughly enjoyable experience thanks to him!

Great tour! Robert gave us great insight into Winston Churchill, his life and his impact on the world. I did think because of the title of the tour that we would get more history of London, Westminster Abbey etc but it was primarily about Winston Churchill. The museum and war rooms were awesome!!!! Had a hard time hearing with my headphones but didn't ruin the tour.

Tour guide was great. Churchill war rooms were good but we had to wait in line for about 35 minutes to get in which shouldn’t have happened.
