The World War II tour takes you to see the famous London WWII land marks, like HMS Belfast and the Cabinet War Rooms, and the less well known, like the church on which the blitz damage was deliberately left untouched as a reminder. The tour guide was in full WWII costume and had music, radio recordings and photos of bombed out London (which were a great aid and quite moving, too) as well as real gas masks and rations. The duck boat doesn't go in the water, but you join one of the 'little boats' that went to Dunkirk, which was really special. There was still plenty of general info, eg about the bridges and stations, Westminster Hall and Queen Victoria, but the WWII angle was really interesting and brought London history to life. The tours seem pretty underbooked (we had one to ourselves) which is a huge shame - really good fun and a great way for my kids to cover their WWII school history topic. Highly recommended.
