My husband and I did the Sherlock Holmes walking tour with Kevin three weeks ago. Well, it was supposed to be the Sherlock Holmes walking tour but it was WAY MORE than that! The things we learnt about London were amazing and so many gems hiding in plain sight! Our guide was SO knowledgeable and interesting, we could have walked all day listening to his stories! If you only have one time to do one tour in London, this has to be it!!

It’s hard to say which part of this tour was the most exciting. Kevin, our tour guide made every part of the trip so interesting and our grandchild flipped over following Sherlock’s story. Wished we could have spent more time with kevin .

Stephen kindly adapted his tour to our requests - my husband for Sherlock Holmes, for myself for some of the older buildings and communities that merged over the years to form London. Stephen's depth of knowledge was apparent, but he adapted his tour to our level! He also shared lots of fun facts to keep us smiling. I would thoroughly recommend one of these tours, especially to people like us who used to commute into London for work, but who never took the time to really look at and think about all the history around us.

I absolutely loved this walking tour! Not only did I visit the show's filming locations (which was such a thrill!) , but I also learned so much about London's history. There's nothing like a walking tour to familiarize yourself with a destination. This is my 3rd time to London but through this tour, I definitely discovered more things compared to my past visits when I toured on my own. My guide Kevin was very knowledgeable, and was also the nicest and most patient guide I've ever met! I absolutely recommend this private tour to any Sherlock Holmes fan, and to anyone wanting to learn more about London! Another plus: the owner is very quick to respond if you ever have any questions or concerns.

We toured many interesting sites that were used in the BBC productions with guide Dewi Evans. Dewi has a very deep knowledge of interesting details regarding the local historical sites and many aspects of the various Sherlock Holmes productions and books. I would highly recommend this tour and our guide to anyone interested in Sherlock Holmes.

Ryan was our tour guide. We love Sherlock and especially the BBC version with Benedict Cumberbatch. He is also a tour guide at the Sherlock Holmes museum. He knew a ton. Then when we went to 221 B Baker, he knew everyone so we were given lovely and special treatment. We did the store, but not the museum on the tour. In addition to all of the sites from the show and also historic Sherlock sites, Ryan knew a ton about London. He is patient and polite. Highly recommended if you are a Sherlock fan.

Our tour guide, Dewi, was very informative and fun. The Sherlock fans in our group loved all the locations and details of each given. For the not so much Sherlock fans, he was great about pointing out other sites, giving information and answering all of our questions. The tour took us all over London via walking (LOTS of it!), the bus and tube.We loved it!

This was an absolutely wonderful tour. Our tour guide, Stephen, was passionate and kind throughout - always keeping us interested along the way and happy to provide additional facts where they popped up. He knew the material extremely well and seem to have lots of knowledge and it was fun to ask him plenty of questions. He was flexible and able to help us arrange things so that they worked specifically to our needs and timetable. Recommended!
