Our guide, Pepe, made the tour informative and fun. In spite of being a busy day in the City, NYE, he kept the group safely to the Churchill bunkers. The self guided tour was quite interesting.

Gavin was so entertaining, passionate and knowledgeable. He had so many facts (and pictures also) for the Churchill War Rooms and our walking tour. We had a group of about 20 people and he held everyone's attention with his enthusiasm and energy. We took 5 tours through Viator in England and this was our favorite thanks to Gavin!

Our guide Gavin did a wonderful job engaging our attention to the area of Westminster. Meeting a genuine east Londoner, his insight from family memory of WW II added tremendously to the experience of Churchill’s underground bunker. The underground bunker itself is perfectly intact and preserved, transporting you to that part of history .

My husband and I really enjoy WWII history. This was a fantastic tour in and around Westminster and Parliament square. The tour was easy to locate and the guide, Richard, was extremely knowledgeable and engaging (we actually had him for two tours!). The War Rooms are an experience all on there own and the benefit of doing the walking tour and admission is you’ll escape what is likely a lengthy queue no matter the time of day. Highly recommended for anyone interested in WWII history, Winston Churchill and even the basis of a lot of history surrounding parliament’s beginnings.
