Extremely knowledgeable and entertaining guide, very passionate regarding history and British literature overall. Makes you feel very connected to the city and its history. A not-miss tour, especially for avid readers (and physicians too!). Hail and rain just made the tour more enjoyable and immersive.

Step back in time with Mr Toby as he helps you understand the life and times of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and find out more about who he modeled his most famous character on.
