    An absolute must for any Sherlockian or want-to-become-one!
    A hilarious, wonderful Sherlock Holmes Walk with Fiona! She was so enthused and knowledgeable that even if you hadn’t known anything about Doyle‘s stories or the various films and series, you’d have turned into a flaming fan. Thank you!

    Immense! A must-do experience for Gavin and Stacey fans. Absolutely amazing!
    Where to start! Absolutely fantastic tour - 'Sally from the Valley' and "Dave" were brilliant. From the moment Dave's Coaches pulled up, they were fully immersing everyone in the Gavin and Stacey experience. So well thought out and to find out so much more about where scenes were actually filmed was brilliant. Loved being able to visit Glenda's house and chat with her about her house being used as Gwen and Stacey's home. It just made the tour complete. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves Gavin and Stacey.

    Fiona is fab
    A great 2.5 hours of walking round London and seeing some Holmes related sights. Fiona was brilliant and sufficiently geeky, 10/10 would do again

    Not bad
    It was very interesting walking past the places The Krays frequented and lived. However I think a proper tour guide with more knowledge would be better. The baths opposite where they lived for instance were never mentioned and they used them all the time. Some of the things mentioned never happened and I’ve read a few books on The Krays. I would say Vas Blackwood was very engaging and passionate about his work though. Not for the faint hearted with the colourful language- overall good but wouldn’t do it again.

    Disappointing tour
    This tour was disappointing. It started on a bad note when we were piled into a mini bus that had been outfitted with too many extra seats so we were totally crammed in with NO leg room. The mini coach tour description was a bit deceptive, assuring in writing "a maximum of 15 persons" yet 18 were on our tour. The extra people would not have been such a big deal had we not been so crammed in. This was especially unacceptable given that 5 hours of the day were in transit! We wasted a half hour at an unnecessary rest stop one hour later - we were encouraged to buy lunch there yet it turned out there were plenty of food options at Highclere, making the stop unnecessary. As a result, we ended up being rushed in Bampton, having only 20 minutes to explore on our own after being told some interesting things to see (which there was no time for). Our tour guide was nice but definitely could have provided more substance about Downton Abbey. I'm not sure he knew the series that well as he made a few errors in story line and characters. The high point of the tour was of course getting to spend time at Highclere, on our own. All told, this tour was OK but it certainly could use some improvements -- we felt the hand of big business substituting quantity for quality. We would not do a tour with this entity again.

    Enjoyable and Entertaining Day Out
    My Mum and I are lifelong Midsomer Murders fans, so it really was a treat to see all the different filming locations and tie them back to the episodes they featured in! The tour guide (Rob) was fantastic - very knowledgeable and entertaining, along with our bus driver (David) who did an amazing job of getting us in and out of some really tight spots! Overall a really enjoyable day, would definitely recommend for anyone who is a fan of the series.

    Gangster Tour
    Had an amazing tour with Vas Blackwood on Saturday, 18th May. The guide, Vas, made it soo enjoyable, he was knowledgeable, funny, exciting, heart warming. You could see he is 100% committed to this tour. It is a walking tour so be prepared to walk, but the locations and information that Vas provides is simply amazing. I've loved Vas s work since his Lenny Henry days and he is simply a great all round actor and if his acting career ever fades (it won't) he will go far as a tour guide. Book this tour. It is simply amazing. Wear comfortable shoes. Once again, Thank you Vas. 👍

    Excellent Call the Midwife tour
    A very good guide (Dawn) during our visit to the Call the Midwife tour at Chatham dockyards. The tour lasts about 1 1/2 hours and does take a lot of walking. Dawn was really enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the sets and how the series is set up and filmed. Having watched nearly all the programs in the series, it was nice to see where the outside shoots were done. There is also a museum of some of the sets and props used in the filming. A really worthwhile visit with a very good and sometimes numerous guide.

    Midsomer Madness
    We took the Midsomer Murders Private Tour. The pick-up at our hotel was very convenient. Our guide Rob was excellent. How he remembered each episode name and number was beyond my comprehension! We saw many sites that we recognized and ones that were on the episodes waiting for me when I got home. The only drawback to the tour was the vehicle. There were 4 adults plus Rob, and the vehicle was rather snug, to say the least. Overall, though, it was a great day out for this fan!!!

    Fabulous experience!
    We had a fabulous time walking around London and learning about some of the different filming sites used throughout the city. Our guide, Fiona, was amazing and very knowledgeable! She not only talked about Harry Potter, but also provided interesting facts about the city and other films and television shows.

    Great tour. Not so great minibus.
    Tour and guide were great. Would recommend and do again. The minibus was a sardine can experience. I am on the short side and my knees were pressed up against the seat in front. My wife had to swivel her knees out into the aisle for comfort.

Chris the tour guide was very knowledgeable about Paddington and included lots of information about the new Paddington films including filming locations such as Paddington station and Portobello market.

Nice information included about Micheal Bond and the original Paddington books too. Very good for families, couples and Paddington fans but maybe not suitable for very young children due to the duration being 2-3 hours mostly on foot.

I took my doting children on this tour, the are extremely enamored by this silly little bear and I felt it best if they both enjoyed their favorite bear while exploring the vast city they live in.
My youngest, 3, struggled to walk the whole journey so I did bring a pram with me to seat her in once she got tired. Luckily I bought the double pram as my second youngest, 5, also got tired quickly.
I would have to also add that my 11 year-old got a bit bored as she thinks that she is too old to enjoy this sort of attraction.
The kids, and me, did get a bit upset at a few of the sites as it was ones that their late father had taken them to. So it was a bit embarrassing to walk around London with tears streaming down mine and my kiddos faces.

The tour itself was great and our tour guide Amber was lovely and extremely knowledgeable however the one thing that let it down was towards the end of the tour we had to wait for a bus the number 23.
This bus did not turn up for half an hour!
It then impacted on our next stops and the time the tour finished.
We knew the tour finished at 12.30 and we booked theatre tickets for 2.30 and thought we’d have 2hrs before the show to have lunch wander round portobello road for a bit before heading over to the strand.
As the tour finished around 1pm it was around 10 mins walk to the tube Notting hill to get to our next point Holborn to walk down to the theatre to grab lunch on the way - it just made that time a bit rushed due to the bus delay.

I think if you’re going to do tours with bus journeys then either you skip the bus and extend the walking tour , my preference, or you advise people the tour may be delayed if the buses don’t run or turn up as expected! There was no mention of getting a bus on the tour information it was called a walking tour!

We missed our tour by 8 mins. Unfortunately the National Express coach took 3 hours to get to London. The driver kindly dropped us at Earls court and we got the underground and arrived at 10:38. There was no -one from the tour in/ next to the shop and we ran to the Paddington statue on Platform 1. There was no way we could contact the tour guide as we had no information from them although they did have MY number on the booking. We could have caught them up especially if we had details of the route. We are so disappointed. My daughter had bought the tour for me as a present. Then I received an email asking me if I enjoyed the tour!
Britmovies said they cannot refund the voucher due to cost! (If you miss a flight they book you on the next one.)

We booked the Paddington Bear Walking Tour of London for my 7 year old niece who is a massive fan of Paddington Bear. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The picture book he had was very beneficial when showing us locations and linking these with the films. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Our tour guide even helped us regarding transport to Buckingham Palace from Portobello Road which is where the tour finished. Thank you for a great experience!

A really great tour, Amber our tour guide was full of energy and lots of fun.
The well through little Venice was lovely and we had never been before, Amber told us lots of information about the area and where the canals go too.
The group size was good and not too big, and everyone joined in the scuttle and bear growling.
There was a short bus ride, which I don’t think was necessarily needed. Would possibly be better to just walk especially if the weather is nice.
The only thing that I would say was a negative is that you don’t finish back at the Paddington shop where you start. I didn’t get chance to look in the shop before, and would be nice to end the tour there so people could buy souvenirs and not have to carry them on the walk.
I would definitely recommend this tour to friends and family, and will be booking with Brit movie tours again.
Thank you Amber for a wonderful time, you were so fun and so knowledgeable

We landed in London early and needed something to do while we waited for our hotel room. My 17 year old daughter and I have been fans since she was young and when I searched for Paddington Bear it was one of the first things that popped up. I did book before our flight took off with ease. Owen was our guide and he was fantastic. He was very informative about Paddington, the movies and the author. He also made excellent recommendations on other things to do in London. And was even able to recommend some places to eat while we are in Rome and Paris. Thanks Owen! Amy and Angela

*We had a hard time finding the meet ip spot, just read the instructions on ticket closely.
