Your fully qualified and highly experienced black cab driver is the perfect guide to take you through the streets of London. London's taxi drivers have to sit the toughest taxi exam in the world, and their inside knowledge of London is unsurpassed. They know every alley, street and short cut in London, as well as all the historic sights, palaces, museums, galleries, shops and markets.

Taking a Black Taxi Tour of London offers unrivaled personalized and flexible service. Your taxi collects you from your hotel and drops you off wherever you choose in central London when the two-hour tour is finished.

Ask your driver to take you along a route specially chosen by you. Or let your driver guide you around instead, stopping off at the major sights and stopping on request to take photographs. Your driver also provides a full commentary, packed with anecdotes you won't find in any guidebook!

Design your own itinerary with your driver on the day, or see the following sights on a general tour:

  • Tower of London
  • Tower Bridge
  • Trafalgar Square
  • Buckingham Palace

Our 2hour tour with Stuart on 4/5/18 was so delightful we wished we had
Chosen a 4 hour tour. We were whisked around Central London while listening to stories of places, people and Stuart's own take on special places. We saw the Westminster Cathedral which we knew nothing about and saw various gardens and historic sites as well as flats of famous people. Stuart graciously drove us up to Camden Locks which he recommended highly and.........he was so right. We might have missed this vintage, bohemian, pop-scene open air Market!! And the fish and chips were outstanding. We would hire Stuart to take us anywhere around London. He knows his city, how to drive it and to make every place interesting. A five star tour for sure.

A great tour! Stewart was our guide. He took us to lovely hidden places that really allowed us to experience London. We appreciated him not wasting time in traffic. If there was a jam he turned around and went another way. We felt this tour was well worth the price and he took pics of us too.

The tour was amazing and our driver was awesome. We learned a lot about the history of some areas in London. Next time I am in London will take the black taxi tour again. It was outstanding and so was our driver.

Our driver was on time and very accommodating in getting us to the most important places we wanted to visit and take pictures. He took us to places that we did not know about and appreciate very much that he took us to those places.

We started out with a small list then let Stewart take the lead. He showed us parts of London we would never have seen on our own. Stewart has driven London for over 40 years. He knows it well. He told us historical facts as well as anecdotal stories. It was an awesome tour. He showed us all the different neighborhoods of London. I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants to see the real London away from the tourist sites. Thank you very much Stewart.

This is the best way to see all that London has to offer in a short time. Great, friendly driver!!

I dont really know what to say about this tour. It certainly isnt worth the money. Get on the hop on hop off bus, and you see the same thing for a quarter of the price. Our guide, Stuart, kept telling us how good he was, unfortunately, some of the things he showed us was nothing we wanted to see. I would not do this again nor would I recommend it.

Well.....we were all booked everything confirned, i called, they agreed on the up location, then called back once at the location driver said he can't come! So we were left stranded in the middle of nowhere, thanks to a good Samaritan, who had a friend that have us a ride to the airoirt. So we had to pay 400£ for the ride. Thanks I won't be back again no time soon! HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!!
