Full description
Enjoy a fun-packed 3 hour tour by iconic London black cab and follow in the footsteps of Shakespeare, The Beatles, James Bond, and Sherlock Holmes.

Alas, poor Yorick will not be joining you, but you will get to see where the Bard – aka William Shakespeare – lived, wandered, and possibly drank!

All of this may be elementary when you stop at 221b Baker Street – aka the home of Sherlock Holmes. See where Holmes’s creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle really did live and practice medicine. Follow clues across London, taken from the books and films.

You’ll be shaken and stirred as you enter the world of James Bond – aka 007. Visit Bond creator Ian Fleming’s house, the home of MI5 and MI6, and locations from famous Bond movies.

With all those spies, you would think you were back in the USSR. But you are not; you are on the Beatles section of your tour. Travel back to ‘60s swinging London in the footsteps of the Fab Four, and discover where they lived, worked, played - and probably drank!

Not quite what we expected

The tour was more general London than expected. Little on Bond or Shakespeare - a bit on the Beatles. Nothing on Sherlock Holmes at all. The general London info was interesting but we did the tour toward the end of our stay so a lot of it had already been seen or heard. Other guide was very nice and clearly knew his material. But the tour itself was not really as advertised.
