The tour was interesting and entertaining. Ashley also had some funny anecdotes to share that lightened things up. We did the tour at the beginning of January, which is why the 4 hours were a bit too long. Especially because 3 hours is definitely long enough for teenagers.

Ashley is phenomenal- no question you can think to ask will be unanswered! A very thorough and amazing way to see the city and head it’s history. You will be walking for many hours but there are opportunities for bathroom and coffee along the way. 😊

Very nice activity. The puzzles were very good and there is a lot to learn about Sir Arthur C. Doyle. Allows you to discover other streets of London in a fun way and arrive at 221b Baker Street, the apartment of the famous Sherlock Holmes.
