An unforgettable journey at the heart of Mayfair and St. James’s with the famous and unsung men and women who joined the Free French Forces and continued fighting against the Nazis. From the Headquarters of General de Gaulle to the French secret services, from the first bunker of Churchill to the place where the Appeal of 18 June was written, a unique tour through London and History.

Very knowledgeable guide who will guide you through some of the most iconic districts of the city of London. At the same time we discovered where De Gaulle lived and worked, such an important part of our history. I recommend this tour for everyone.
