Excellent tour with Richard!! This is for both the clásico Holmes fan as well as the newer BBC - show fan! We were so happy with all the inside knowledge from our guide. We had a younger Sherlock fan in our group and Richard spent a lot of time telling our youngest kid about age appropriate things from the Sherlock TV and movies, as well as the classic stories. His little known facts about Sherlock are really a huge bonus and we loved every minute. He had great knowledge of the museum before we got there, and even suggested other BBC filming locations we might want to visit later in our trip. Thanks so much for an amazing experience!!

My friends and I really enjoyed this tour. Richard was clearly a fan of the subject and enjoyed showing us around. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to show us some other historical landmarks around London. We plan on taking other tours with Richard when we next get back to the UK.

Our tour guide, Richard, was extremely kind and knowledgeable. We had a great time walking around parts of London experiencing destinations that were vital to both the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle novels and short stories as well as BBC’s Sherlock. In addition, gave us some insight on other locations that were part of Harry Potter and Charles Dickens. Highly recommend for fans!
