Charlotte was an amazing tour guide! Extremely knowledgeable about the sites and London history, plus the pace of the tour was perfect.

This tour was fantastic and Stephen was great. We did this tour the day we arrived and it was a great way to see some of the city, learn about London - and specifically Churchill, and set up for the rest of our trip. Definitely would recommend and take other tours with Walks.

Guided walks has been one of our favorite ways to see and learn about London. This particular walk was disappointing. Our tour guide repeatedly made sarcastic remarks about Americans and America and while one or two might be funny, it got rather tiresome and didnt have anything to do with Churchill or WW2. Mainly, we felt that the war rooms visit wasnt any different than if wed gone on our own. There was no added value to having a guide. We still waited in line and we still used the audio tour. We love guided walks in London generally but wouldnt recommend this one or this guide.

I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in WWII history. Salvatore was so enthusiastic about the subject and answered all our questions. Also, even though we had a very small group, they did not cancel. You can count on the tour going on as planned.
