Really like visiting all the places in conjucture with Sherlock holmes. Our guide was really good. Nice thing to do as a family

I absolutely loved this walking tour! Not only did I visit the show's filming locations (which was such a thrill!) , but I also learned so much about London's history. There's nothing like a walking tour to familiarize yourself with a destination. This is my 3rd time to London but through this tour, I definitely discovered more things compared to my past visits when I toured on my own. My guide Kevin was very knowledgeable, and was also the nicest and most patient guide I've ever met! I absolutely recommend this private tour to any Sherlock Holmes fan, and to anyone wanting to learn more about London! Another plus: the owner is very quick to respond if you ever have any questions or concerns.

A very interesting walking tour, specially for Sherlock's fans and for all who loves walking through London. Special thanks to Kevin, a very friendly guide.

We toured many interesting sites that were used in the BBC productions with guide Dewi Evans. Dewi has a very deep knowledge of interesting details regarding the local historical sites and many aspects of the various Sherlock Holmes productions and books. I would highly recommend this tour and our guide to anyone interested in Sherlock Holmes.

Ryan was our tour guide. We love Sherlock and especially the BBC version with Benedict Cumberbatch. He is also a tour guide at the Sherlock Holmes museum. He knew a ton. Then when we went to 221 B Baker, he knew everyone so we were given lovely and special treatment. We did the store, but not the museum on the tour. In addition to all of the sites from the show and also historic Sherlock sites, Ryan knew a ton about London. He is patient and polite. Highly recommended if you are a Sherlock fan.
