Stephen was amazing! He was extremely knowledgeable and expertly navigated my mother and I through London despite the large crowds. We especially enjoyed the interesting facts that he would point out to us about the buildings and our passing surroundings, and was very gracious letting us stop to take many pictures throughout the day. Highly recommend this tour/tour company if coming to London!

Stephen provided a most edifying and enjoyable tour - his considerable knowledge of the city and its history enhanced the experience. He anticipated our interests and clearly made an effort to get to know us to do so. A lot of walking but worth every steP. I highly recommend this tour with the personable and professional Stephen.

This tour with Kevin was PERFECT. It was everything we were looking for. Kevin was so knowledgeable and fun, and the tour was well adapted to us. My partner and I have both been to London many times, and we still learned so much and saw new things. It really was like walking around London with a local friend. We would definitely do it (or another theme) again.

A very immersive experience. We felt like we were taken back in time. A thoroughly enjoyable experience. Highly recommend it for those who are interested in World War 2 history and Winston Churchill’s life, especially his time spent as Prime Minister during WWII.
