Absolutely fantastic!! Our driver was amazing. He not only showed us locations where Doctor Who was filmed, but he took us all around London and gave us history about those locations--Hyde Park, The BBC, Whitehall Palace, St. James Palace. Harrods, Wamley's,--and even gave us info as to where to eat and the history behind certain coffee shops. I wish I could remember our driver's name--he is a gem and we absolutely loved this tour. We also had our picture taken with a Tardis and a Dalek!
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.
We went on the tour, and my Daughter is a huge fan. Our driver Jerry was fantastic, and not only showed us the Dr Who sites but also some historical sites in London. Jerry was fun and has lots of knowledge of Dr. Who as well as London. If you go on this tour I certainly would request Jerry as your guide. Thanks so much!
Excellent. The driver was extremely knowledgable about dr who and London. There were two dr who fans and two less so on the tour and all four of us enjoyed learning about London from such a friendly interesting guide. Highly recommend it.
We all (parents, 2 teenagers) enjoyed the tour. It was fun to see the different Dr. Who sites. The Taxi minibus was quite comfortable, even though the rear facing seats tended to cause motion sickness. We had the driver take us to the Dr. Who shop and museum at the end and that was a great final stop. The reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is the cost.
