If you are a history buff with an itch for old-school spy movies and adventure, this full-day small-group tour awaits you. Learn to think as a spy did during the war era in London.

Step Into Wartime London

Turn back time to wartime London, where the signs of German bombings in the past can still be found. Follow the English-speaking guide through historical relics and hear about the impact of the Cold War against Russia. Listen to the guide narrate stories of betrayal and victory over the British enemies and how the country’s intelligence agencies supported the battle.

Visit Intelligence Agency Headquarters

See the headquarters of the famous MI5 and MI6 agencies—the inspiration for the beloved James Bond movies. Note the public “dead drop” sites, known to be the location where spies exchanged pivotal information that changed the course of the war. Marvel at stories of double agents and traitors as you tour the secretive areas the officials used to recruit agents.

End the tour with enhanced knowledge of the Cold War and eventual victory against the Soviets.
