Itinerary
Stop At:  
Tardis Police Box
Doctor Who - A tour by a London Taxi, NOT a London Tardis! We start this tour by visiting the only remaining TARDIS (London police box) then it's off and spinning around London as we see the film location sites from the Dr Who films and series. As the series has grown in popularity so has this tour.
Duration: 15 minutes
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
London Eye
See where famous scenes with the Time Lord were shot during the filming of “The Chase,” “Dalek Invasion of Earth” and more. Stand on the bridge where the Daleks started their invasion of London, get your picture taken on the spot where Rose and the Doctor stood by the London Eye, and stand outside the building that became 10 Downing Street.
Duration: 2 hours 
Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Downing Street
There will be trivia questions (do you know why in the original series, two of the main characters were science and history teachers ? We will tell you). There will also be great anecdotal stories of the Doctors, their assistants, writers, locations and the future for the Doctor. During our tour you will see where Downing Street was recreated, see where Rose lived. Have your picture taken standing by a real Tardis. (We will also visit the site of where a new Tardis is being built). We will see where Daleks roamed the streets of London, along with numerous other enemies of the Doctor. We would tell you more but that would spoil the tour for you.
Duration: 2 hours

What a great tour. We got driven around in style with Andrew in the black cab. It was great that he had a DVD player and showed clips of the monuments. Knowledgeable and entertaining. Thank you.

I loved the tour. was very cool to connect scenes from so many episodes with where they were shot around London. what i didn't expect was how much i learned about London just because of all the famous places that have been in the show so it really was a Dr Who tour and a London tour. My guide was great!

My wife and I booked this tour as part of our first visit to London. We found it to be very enjoyable and our guide, Andrew was full of information, anecdotes, and was very entertaining. The sites were a nice blend of all of the different Doctor's over the years. Getting to see, and have our picture taken with the last, blue Police Box was very nice. Andrew was great during the whole tour, and also provided information and anecdotes of other sites along the way as well.

Great time with an extremely knowledgeable driver. A great way to see the city with kids who are fans of the series. Every stop is tied to multiple episodes to make it relevant to them. Lots of fun.

We really enjoyed this tour. Besides visiting the Doctor Who sites, the driver also included up close visits to some areas that we would never have seen as closely without this tour. We visited the Globe theater and saw some gorgeous views of landmarks in London. We also visited the last working police box in London and the BBC headquarters. The driver was very personable and polite.

The tour included pointing out some of the main Doctor Who filming locations, photographs with the last remaining police box outside in London, the Tardis at the BBC, and a dalek at the BBC. Some of the best parts of the tour had nothing to do with Doctor Who including a walk through a modern and actively being worked on spray painted subway, a walk on the shore of the Thames, photos on the Millenium bridge, a trip to an armour/weapons exhibit and a recommendation to go to the war museum.

Stephen W
, Jul 2016
This was a very good Doctor Who Tour with a lot of general London info thrown in as well. I had thought there was going to be more of a Classic Who bend, but rather it ended up being completely Modern Who which started out a bit disappointing, but the Tour Guide Gary I believe ended up making it a very enjoyable 3 hours. My biggest complaint would be that the video clips that were shown had excessively long intros that felt like they were there to eat up time in the tour. Still photographs would have been much quicker and just as effective. That's a minor complaint for what was otherwise a very enjoyable experience!

This was absolutely awesome and our guide was fabulous. Tour went for over 3 hours and it was great to be able to travel around via a London blackcab with the ability to stop and get out whenever we wanted to, instead of being locked into a group tour. I would highly recommend this to any Doctor Who fan and it is definitely value for money. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.
