Fantastic tour, very enjoyable. Lots of interesting content and facts. Our guide Steph was amazing! I would highly recommend booking and we will definitely look to book other tours through the same sight. As a sherlock fan, my partner thoroughly enjoyed it, and as someone who has never seen or read any sherlock stories, I still found it a great tour.

Great, fun and interesting

Great tour. We went to see new places of London and the sites having a links to the Holmes story and movies. Also a nice walk through town. We passed the SH pub as part of the tour and after the guided tour we went back for lunch. Beware that the tour does not take one to the SH museum, which we though visited later same day. Alex was a super guide. Highly recommended if you're keen on SH.

Alex - our guide was simply wonderful. Really knowledgeable about Sherlock and Sir ACD. He made his talks fun and entertaining - giving us both facts and anecdotes about the characters and various production’s processes. Highly recommend it! P.S. It would have been great to know upfront not only where the starting point is, but also where we will end the walk - so as to be able to plan next steps (like lunch location).
