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.

Driver (Stuart) was very knowledgeable and showed us a lot of “secret London” things. Was very good with our kids and overall we had an amazing experience.

We were picked up right on time and whisked away on a wonderful tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable and knew just where to take us... Buckingham Palace, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, London Bridge, Old London, etc.

Our driver, Mark, was prompt, kind, fun and just fabulous. I’ve been to London numerous times - but my teen not so much. He ferreted out some fun Harry Potter sites (for me, not her!) and really interesting little neighborhoods I’ve never had the chance to visit. This black cab tour really tied London together for me - I feel like I finally really know the lay of the land. And it was attention grabbing for my young travel partner, too!

Our family of 5 had a two hour tour with a great guide, Andy. He picked us up at our hotel and took us around the city to see the main sights. We were able to exit the car at times to walk and take pictures. Would highly recommend!

Stuart took my wife and I through a tour of the sites that normally tourist does not go to. Behind the scene places that has great history to it. He took us to an American Bar that was hidden in a square that we would have never found or see. His personality is amazing.

David was our guide and he was great. We told him what we had seen and what we were planning to see so he took us around to places we would have missed

professional and safe way in London to be driven to your designated wishes, interests and sights. we visited the homes and locations of the film NottingHill, interesting architural gems, locations concerning james bond and espionage, taxi was clean and our driver/guide had great humour!

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.

David was our guide and he was great. When you only have a day or two and want to see the outside of key historic sights and get brief history, then this is perfect. London traffic makes it difficult to see too much in two hours, but for us it was just the right amount of time and information. Recommend.

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!!!!!!
