A Fun Tour for Everyone
Susan_S, July 2022
Owen was a really fun guide. Great stories to share about the history of London. The tour was not just about Dr Who I recommend this tour. I enjoyed it even though I have seen very few Dr. Who episodes
Brilliant Tour guide.
Paul_W, June 2022
Fantastic Tour guide. Jolly, effervescent, and knew the subject inside out. Many little snippets of information.
passionated Doctor Who-Guide
Laura_H, Apr 2022
It was so great how passionated the guide was!❤️ I could feel how much he was into the Doctor WHO- World him self.
Great Tour : interesting, funny, inspiring, simply FANTASTIC!
Katharina_B, July 2018
Fiona was a great guide as she is just as big as a fan as we were. The Tour was very interesting and held lots of inside- and behind the scenes facts, but also Facts about the actors and writers of the show. The length of the tour was fine, as time just flew by and I could have gone on all day! Because it was a very hot day, Fiona made sure to alsways find a space in the shade for us to stand in while she was doing her presentations. Definitely worth the price.
Really enjoyed the tour, our tour...
Mike C, Apr 2018
Really enjoyed the tour, our tour guide was quite funny, and very informative. I even learned some things about Doctor Who I didn't know, so that was a bonus. I'm glad I did this tour with a friend, and I would recommend it to any DW fan.

Ronald H, Feb 2018
The tour guide was a total Dr. Who NERD!! Highest possible compliment there was a movie being filmed but he was able to move us around and give us a few insights into how things are filmed. Definitely a spring or summer day tour but the guide was fantastic!! Since Dr. Who isn't really filmed in London there are only a few spots to really visit but once again the guide still made it interesting.

Our tour guide Jass is great! He is ture Doctor Who Fan. The tour not only visit DW's filming location but also London famous attractions. It is great to join this tour as I have more understanding about the history of the attraction and how it's related to DW. Love it!

zoektn, Oct 2017
It was cool to visit some of the places where they shot the scenes, it was a large group so you have to stand closer to be able to hear. Not too much walking. Overall I will recommend to Whovians.

Kelly D, Aug 2017
Craig our Tour Guide was AMAZING! He had so much information not only about Dr. Who but about the London area. I am glad we took this tour early in out trip to London because we had people travel in to meet us later and I kept saying to them, I learned that on our Dr. Who tour. It became a running joke but I will definitely consider this company for future tours on our return trips! THANK YOU!!

Charles_G, Feb 2017
If youre a Dr Who fan you will love this tour. Dewi, our tour guide, was clearly a devoted fan and it showed in his attitude. He was entertaining and passionate in taking us through the different places in London where the series was filmed. Even if youre not a Dr Who fan I still would recommend this tour as you get to see a lot of places around London and Dewi also had a good knowledge of the general history of the areas covered.

Michele D, Nov 2016
The tour company Zook good care of me when I went to the wrong meeting point. I'm glad I caught up to the group because I saw some interesting parts of London that are part of Doctor Who lore. The stories were great and the photos from the episodes really helped highlight the connection to the show

Kyrsten C, Sept 2016
It was a good length, but I really don't care for old Doctor Who and I believe half was about that so that was a let down. The tour guide was really great.

Catherine P, Sept 2016
Great tour! Dewi was VERY knowledgeable! A great behind-the-scenes look at London and Dr. Who! Highly recommend.
I thought I knew everything there...
Robert B, Sept 2016
I thought I knew everything there was to know about Doctor Who, but I was so wrong - David was a fountain of knowledge. I learned so much on this trip, and it was a blast sharing my love for Doctor Who with fellow fans from around the world in the city that made it all happen more than 50 years ago! Definitely worth every penny. Thank you David!
Excellent tour. Very knowledgeable...

Brian K, July 2016
David was great -- funny, knowledgeable, and engaging. It was a beautiful walk through several neighborhoods and along the river, and we really got to geek out about Doctor Who and its connections to other shows (Sherlock, etc). We definitely recommend it!

Theodore A, July 2016
Very well done tour. Informative and the guide did well keeping everyone together. Ask for a water or restroom stop if you need it, otherwise it's about a 3 hour tour including stopping and talking. Recommend sunscreen and a hat.

clare s, June 2016
Took our grandson who is a big HP fan. He loved the tour and what made it so exciting was our guide, Nicola. She was so enthusiastic and told us some little known facts which made the tour so much more. Interesting. In fact because of her enthusiasm, our walking tour of Dr. Who didn't have the excitement that she gave the HP tour. And because it was a bus tour, we got to see lots of different sight and areas of the city.
