My husband and I traveled to London for the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. One of the absolute highlights of the trip was the Doctor Who Tour. Richard Liddle, who may very well be the best tour guide in the city, met us at the front door of our hotel, precisely on time, with his comfortable and spacious black taxi. Off we were then, first to a location that stands in for 10 Downing Street on many films and TV shows, including Doctor Who. A film crew was there this day, although they wouldn't disclose the name of the movie (maybe the next Bond film). Next stop was Trafalgar Square, then on to the Victoria Embankment, where Rose and the Doctor found the Nestene transmitter, aka the London Eye. We walked around Parliament Square and then drove to the last remaining police box in London at Earl's Court. I thought there would be a crowd here, since it was the actual 50th anniversary, but there were only a pair of fellow nerds from Eastern Europe. We took pictures of each other. Next stop was Kensington Gardens and the Albert Memorial, then on to the BBC. After going through security, we had an opportunity to have a photo op with the official Tardis. Since Mr. Liddle knew I was also a Sherlock Holmes fan, he took us to Wimpole Street, where Conan Doyle lived and wrote in 1891.

This was a fantastic experience, thanks to the incredible London knowledge, and good humor, of our very experienced tour guide.

Celia, our tour guide, really knew her stuff. The tour was a lot of fun and I learned a lot about Sherlock and his creator. I can really recommend it!

This Tour was taken on my last day in London. We mert in front of Sherlock Holmes Museum which is a great find because it is directly next to the London Beatle Store and across the street from Its only rock and Roll- The convienence of having three must sees and then a tour so close together was an awesome quality of this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and witty. She was a university student working on her PHD in political science. We walked for all of the 2 hours and while we did, she was filling us with information about the city and the places we were passing. There were only two others on this tour and that made it quiet intimate and enjoyable! We saw places regarding Princess Diana, Beatles(more than a few), Jimi Hendrix, Madonna, headline news events, places we could only read about before and now actually see and not at 30 mph as you pass them. We walked through Soho, quite different than NY SoHo and around parks and embassies, the US embassy had a quiet protest in the park across the street, very different- Highly recommend if you want to see London up close and personal, remember it is only 2.5 hours, wear comfortable shoes and bring your camera!

I always get a London Pass and Travel Pass on my trips to London. They offer the best and cheapest way to see the city. There were fewer locations that could be entered this time, though, with the London Pass. The Sherlock Holmes Museum is no longer included. Neither is Vinopolis. If you get the London Pass, be willing to push yourself to get your money's worth. Many venues don't open until 10 am and lock entrances an hour before closing. You may have only six or seven hours to get into the venues. You need to plan your card use carefully, minimize travel time between locations. and go to the most expensive locations first to maximize your investment.

Note from Viator: We are so glad that you see the real benefit of the London Pass. The Pass is always being updated and at the last count included 58 different attractions. Certain attractions are removed from time to time but we strive to make the pass as exciting as possible and keep it the great value for money it has always been. Watch this space for new attractions that have been added.

Pros -The tour guide did a good job and was quite knowledgable, and he also came around during our break to answer questions. We learned some quirky things about London that regular tours may not have told us about Cons - It was not 3-3.5 hours. After 2 hours we were dropped off at Sherlock Holmes pub but I don't think many people stayed, plus we had a half hour break during the tour where we were taken to a restaurant. I don't remember seeing a haunted house in Berkely Square. Most of the murder sites were very approximate and we were told where they were but didnt go there because it would have been to far away.

I don't know what I expected but it was a lark anyway. There were no ghosts, lots of speculation and some nice London scenery on the way to the walking part of the tour. Add the Sherlock Holmes Museum and it would have been perfect.
