Our guide Michael did a wonderful job. He has a great voice and was easy to hear in spite of the normal London background noise. But even he could not out duel a trash truck :-), Fortunately it left he he resumed. He was very knowledgeable and had lots of interesting stories related to the series. He walked at a good pace and everyone was able to keep up. In addition to the Doctor Who locations it was nice to see some of the historic sights of London and hear how they have fitted into the show along with some anecdotes about the historic locations themselves. I have never seen the show (Michael doesn't know this) but went with my grandson who is a fan of the show and still the tour was enjoyable.
A warning for this tour--it is a WALKING tour, and walk you do and lots of it. If you don't like walking, don't take this tour. That being said, Michael was a great source of information. He had knowledge of all of the Doctor Who Series, their actors, their locations, their histories. Although I was pooped, I enjoyed the tour.
A suggestion about the meeting location, please be more specific about where to meet. We were not aware that Caffe Nero was a chain, and we wandered quite a bit near and in the London Bridge Station trying to find the correct Caffe Nero.
