What people are saying about Churchill War Rooms

This tour was so filling and immersive and a must do for anyone coming to visit London and only has a short few days! Our guide, Ollie, was such a lovely vibe and her passion for London really shows through in her tour. This was a long 6-hour experience so we got to see all the main sights in that time, Ollie also gave us some great recommendations for where we should spend the rest of our evening which we truly appreciated. I fully recommend this for anyone that wants to explore a lot of London in a short period!!

I had a lovely day on my tour of London. Ollie is very friendly and an excellent tour guide with great knowledge of the sights and history of London. Some of my highlights were the changing of the guard ceremony at Buckingham Palace, seeing the pelicans at St James' park, Fish & Chips by the London eye and the Tower of London. Definitely recommend this tour.

Richard was fantastic and such a pleasure! I feel like I walked away with tons of new knowledge all while having fun. I have already recommended to many others!

Richard was an excellent guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and never lacked for an answer to any question we had.
