A must if you are a history buff. Pepe was extremely knowledgeable and explained points of interest around town that as a history enthusiast you know are there, but don't necessarily show up on tourist maps. The Churchill War Rooms and museum are a wealth if information.

The meeting point was well documented and our guide was excellent. There was a moderate amount of walking, but we took it slow with several stops. I found the tour very informative and our guide very knowledgable. Would highly recommend and the Churchill war rooms are a DEFINITE must see for anyone with an interest in history or Churchill. Very well done with many artifacts from the day and informative / interactive displays

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.
