A very interesting tour even for the less whovian fans.
Although it’s a walking tour it was taken at a reasonable pace so not too strenuous.
Our guide Fiona was super enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about Dr Who and London in general and she definitely is a credit to the tour company.

Very good tour, with a guide (Fiona) who was very enthusiastic and definitely knew her Who. An excellent commentary on not only the Who-related sights, but the other London sights seen as we passed. Even as a Londoner I found out some things that I hadn't known before. Fiona was friendly and easy to talk to. At the end of the tour she gave some ideas about places to eat, and other sights that were in the area.

We were given this tour as a Christmas present and my (less so my partner's) from the outset viewing of Dr Who (worryingly I'm now older than William Hartnell was then, but without the re-generation). It's really a walking tour of an interesting bit of London mostly rooted in Dr Who but with lots of stuff about what else is around you. The start point was easy to find and we were rounded up by Chris, our engaging and knowledgeable guide. Each stop had a story and some supporting photos and there was usually an "oh, yeah..." moment as recollection kicked in. My partner was equally engaged by the general stuff, so you don't need to an absolute fan to enjoy it. If I had a small complaint its that the tour is mostly based on the re-boot from 2005 but that didn't diminish the overall experience which would thoroughly recommend.

We have taken hundreds of walking tours -- and Michael was the worst tour guide we've ever had.

On the pro side -- he was a knowledgeable Dr. Who fan

On the con side -- he clearly wanted the tour to be over as fast as possible. We moved through the city at a steady jog, despite one elderly lady's request that we slow down. She was often a football field or more behind us.

He never asked anyone's name, he didn't ask us about our Dr. Who experience, who our favorite doctor was, or anything. It was like a long, painful monologue.

The actual places we briefly visited and looking at the photos of the show and comparing the scenery etc. was interesting. But it was not worth the time or money spent.

We are sorry to hear that you didnt enjoy the Doctor Who Tour. As you can see from our other reviews of both this tour and of Michael as guide most clients really enjoy it. We try our very best to please everyone but on this occasion it seems we didnt succeed with yourself. We hope you will give us another try in future.

Paid for 3 tickets through Viator for a 10:30am Dr Who Walking Tour in London on Aug 4, 2017. Showed up at 10:34 (few minutes late due to a train station closure--no one there. No one in the area--we looked all around, hoping to catch up--found two other walking tours but not this one. Called the "customer service" number listed on the vouchers only to get a recording that says "this number does not receive incoming calls." I emailed the Viator later that day. The reply said it was our problem for being late, they do not know the tour route anyway nor how to contact the tour provider (BritMovieTours), but if I'd like to PAY AGAIN they'd be happy to book us for a tour the next day. Yeah, right, like I'd give more money to a company with this kind of customer service. Over the course of the day they sent more emails, offering first a 25% then a 50% discount on re-booking. If they had room in the tour, why not just let us take the tour? We had already paid for it! I took the kids to the Dr. Who Museum instead (out of the way but fun) and booked with a DIFFERENT walking tour company (whotourlondon) for the next day where we received a private tour for about the same price as the Viator one. So, Viator/BritMovie Tour companies got to keep their money for providing nothing, but they have forever lost a customer. I'll never understand why companies spend so much money advertising to attract new customers and then treat their actual customers so poorly.

I booked this for part of a surprise trip for my daughter's 13th birthday and it really made our holiday. Scott was the perfect guide, informative, friendly and very, very knowledgeable about Dr Who, London and Harry Potter. I would recommend anyone who is a Dr Who fan to go, but even if you aren't a fan of still recommend it as Scott was very entertaining and gave us lots of interesting info about London and the sights too.

I recieved this tour as a gift for my Birthday, as a massive fan of Doctor Who it was the ultimate present! Owen, our tour guide was incredibly friendly, funny and informative. A great oppurtunity to see some of the most prominent locations used in the filming of Doctor Who, from 'Rose' to 'Dark Water' and 'Death in Heaven' as well as learn a lot about the creation of some of your favourite episodes. This great Doctor Who Walking Tour also acts as a fun short tour of some of the most iconic landmarks in the London too.

Overall, an incredibly fun experience that I would recommend to any Whovian that either lives local or visiting. However, do bear in mind that this Tour only covers 'New Who' from 2005 onward with some mentions of the original series. I can't recommend this enough!

If you or any of your family is a Doctor Who fan, don't miss this tour. It was the highlight of my trip. It was fun and informative. Jerimah did a great job. There were a couple of young whovians on the tour and they seemed to love it also. The only thing I would add to the tour is to stop at Earl Court tube station to see the Blue Box.

The family enjoys Dr Who a good bit, and we didn't want to do just a standard tour - so this seemed like a great fit for us: And it was!

Do leave plenty of time to find the gathering spot for the tour. It took us a good 30 minutes to locate where we were supposed to be. (When we did get there, my wife was a little concerned that we were on the walking tour equivalent of a cruise ship as there were a bunch of older ladies hanging around. It turned out, however, they were on a different tour (Downton Abbey, maybe?).)

The Dr Who tour is touted as the 2005 to present period, but there's a significant bit of older stuff included as well. My tween son was not that interested in the older stuff.

But the tour successfully got us to see a bunch of places we might not have gone otherwise: The Shard, Globe Theater, Millennium Bridge, St Paul's. Along with places we would be seeing (Trafalgar Square, London Eye, etc.).

Nice background info on the show, photos of the show shooting and/or still from the show at the various sites.

Absolutely enjoyed the tour and had fun with our VERY knowledgeable tour guide (Michael, I believe - though he made it clear his name was Davros if we did not like the tour.)

Recommended for fans of The Doctor. (Shame the tour doesn't include the TARDIS at Earl's Court, but it is a bit out of the way.)

The guide is very well informed about the show, the locations and all related Doctor Who. The information was brilliant and interesting. What I didn't like was that the guide kept walking pretty fast without waiting for us and without giving us a minute to take pics, you had to run after the guide (I was later on that day in another similar tour but with another company and the group was thrice the size and that guide waited for all of us, always). At the end of the tour the guide said if you needed recommendations for where to eat and the like, you could ask. Which I did, and he told me to "go back that way we came, there's gotta be something there". Hey... if you don't want to give recommendations, then don't tell the tourists to ask you and then give a horrible generic answer. Man. I wouldn't repeat.
