Tour dates featured image, for THE INTELLIGENCE TRAIL, premium spy tours in London and Edinburgh.


The premier London spy tour provider, THE INTELLIGENCE TRAIL, will once more be performing its mission to inform, educate, and entertain in 2019. Be among the select few to properly journey into the past and present day affairs of Britain’s main intelligence services, MI5, MI6, and GCHQ on the capital’s streets. And for 2019, there’s not only a new spy tour, but a new spy city!

Limited availability tour slots: decide then act, fast!

Tour dates from January to May 2019 are currently listed. June to December tour slots will be added once finalised.

As so many of the Trail’s clients come from ‘Five Eyes’ countries (UK, USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand) we know that overseas clients in particular appreciate dates announced well in advance so they can plan accordingly and book their tour months ahead of the tour date. And of course get the best deal: the best value prices are available when booking six or more weeks before the intended tour date.

Midweek afternoon and evening tours: perfect for larger groups

A limited number of afternoon and evening tours are scheduled with larger client groups in mind. Whether you’re a college or university class, a military/intelligence/diplomatic group, or just a bigger bunch of friends or work colleagues, these tour slots are here for you. But remember: the tour slots are not exclusively for large groups. They are open for everyone, and the first come first pay rule still applies as normal.

So….without further ado….the last scheduled dates for THE INTELLIGENCE TRAIL are here….absorb quickly!

And if you REALLY can’t make these dates but still want your own private tour?
Ask very nicely and let’s see what can be done.

A final word

And while there’s no strong-arm persuasive tactics going on (there’s no need: ‘Trail clients are so enthusiastic!) do think back to the last time you put off booking a flight or concert for a later date. Then you either missed out or the prices had jumped considerably! That’s never a good feeling, so don’t procrastinate, act! If you genuinely want to get the real perspective on current and past British intelligence issues, from an acclaimed intelligence guide and broadcaster, then make it happen in 2019!
