Westminster Walking Tour & Westminster Abbey Entry
This was a great way to see all of the highlights of Westminster in a few hours and spend as much time as we wanted at Westminster Abbey. We’ve been to London before but our guide, Chris, made the tour so much more interesting and fun. Great pace and we learned a bunch, Chris was the best—would definitely recommend!

Westminster 3 Hour Walking Tour & Visit Churchill War Rooms
Our guide Chris took us on this 3 hour Westminster walking tour. All I can say is that this tour was worth every cent . Chris showed us a lot of historic monuments and buildings while taking us on a trip thru London's complex yet interesting history. Don't worry, His wit kept things fun and there are no tests. . At times you didn't even realize it was raining because you were immersed in the stories.

From the beautiful parks, to watching the Changing of the Guard, to 10 Downing Street, Trafalgar Square and so much more - Will made everything interesting and entertaining.
