I would definitely recommend this tour! My younger siblings who are Sherlock Holmes fans both the book and the BBC series will definitely enjoy this tour! Be prepared to walk for 4 hours but it is all worth it.

This turned out to be our favorite tour in London. Because it is private, you control the pace and direction of the tour. Several times we pointed at something and asked, What's that? and our guide, Nigel, either took us to it or explained what it was. The recent BBC Sherlock has the most locations that are featured in the tour. In particular, I wanted to visit Speedy's Restaurant and this was on the tour. This is a walking tour which uses The Tube subway for several hops. We had already purchased an Oyster Card for The Tube and that helped jumpstart our day hint. Overall we give this tour an A.

Our guide was a self-described Sherlock Holmes nerd, and both his knowledge and enthusiasm were infectious. Our 16-yr old granddaughter was with us she's kind of a BBC SH nerd herself, and she was blown away by the level of detail shown.
