I went on The Intelligence Trail this last Sunday,,Oct 30th,,and found it excellent..Our guide, Mr X, is very knowledgable and is willing to answer any questions as we wound our way through the heart of Whitehall,,,tour takes a little over 2.5 hours, and again,,is well worth it!

Did this brilliant tour today. I emerged thoroughly intrigued despite having no previous knowledge or particular interest in the spy world. My brother, an avid reader of spy fiction, thought it was excellent too. The guide was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining, and very generous with his time, expertly answering all our questions throughout and after the tour. Highly recommended.

We just went to London and did this tour at the end of our trip. Our guide was so interesting and gave a great tour. We are big Spooks fans and this was fun.

The Intelligence Trail was a really enjoyable tour. The guide knew his stuff, judged the interests of the group well and took us on a very interesting and informative walk. Having lived in London all my life I now know lots of extra useful and intriguing titbits about this fascinating city.
Thank you very much for a thoroughly enjoyable day!

It was icy cold, like a bad day at the Kremlin, but by the end of our two and a half hour walk, we were warmed through with enough tales of espionage and double double crossing to make us feel as if we'd just spent the afternoon sipping rum and coke with Ian Fleming at Goldeneye. Mr "X", our intelligence officer for the afternoon, came armed with a never-ending array of tales of secrecy, skulduggery and derring-do that opened our eyes to many of the secrets that lurk behind the doors, windows and even balconies of central London. A definite must for anyone who's tired of monuments, galleries and shopping.
