Our driver Ahmet was most excellent. knowledgable, thoughtful, resourceful and gracious. A first class experience in every aspect. Would not hesitate to employ him again. The car itself was roomy, comfortable and air conditioned Which was essential. All in all, a five star experience.

Well done! We had six guys who had never been to London and the driver did a great job showing them the highlights in 3 hours.

Juan was helpful and informative with a great sense of humor. He was generous with his time and we enjoyed our tour with him immensely. Highly recommend him.

Our first night in London-8:00 PM! There were 8 gal cousins traveling to London this May. Ahmed met us as our McGlashan apartments. Showed us all he could of London. Let us take pictures crossing the street at Abby road. He knew stories of London and place that were beautiful at night. At 11:00 he dropped us off at our speakeasy, Evans and Peel, just as we had asked the tour company to do. He knew the answers to all our questions and was just a delight to know. The tour was perfect for a first time visitor to London or for someone who visits here a lot. All we did was just enjoy the evning and get a sense of how attractions were layed out. He suggested a stop at a pub but we had made reservations at our speakeasy so we did not use his pub idea. Next time we will ask for Ahmed!!

My tour was amazing from Buckingham palace to tower bridge to even some historic houses. Ahmed knew his stuff and encouraged me to get out of the car to look around. Ahmed was amazing he took me everywhere on my list and even more, even with a special photo of tower bridge at a secret location. (Maybe not that secret really) Would've love to have done more but with traffic from 6-9pm on a Friday night really bad we gave up on one of the things I wanted to do and I did it the next morning with his directions
I suggest if you do the tour write down what you want to see before you go and if possible do the latest tour possible to avoid the traffic to get more in

Had a great time with driver Ahmed (W184) who accommodated our 'list of things to see' and then some by showing us 'off the sightseeing map' hidden sights, adding informative history and sharing local insight, We did as much as we could on our 3 hour tour and would have been great to have a video of it.

This tour although very good, could have been done independently via the tube or walking. Photo opportunities were only possible where the drive had a place to stop and park. The paces visited were entirely up to us - the driver made some suggestions but said he would take us where ever we wanted - not helpful if you don't know London. Thankfully we did. Driver was on time and confirming the tour was very easy.

We booked the private car night tour for two and it was a complete joke. The driver didn't speak English well and knew NOTHING about the sights we drive by. He admitted he knew nothing and thought he was just a hired car for three hours. Really.....for 200 pounds?

Note from Viator: Thank you for your feedback! We wanted to see if we could clarify this tour for you, and future travelers, to ensure that our travelers always select a tour that will best suit their needs. This tour is labelled as an "Independent Sightseeing Tour with Private Driver". The Driver will not be a Tour Guide, though as a native Londoner, they might be able to answer some questions you have, and they will certainly know how to get you from location to location.

We do offer some Independent Tours on our site for those travelers who don't wish to have a Tour Guide constantly giving them facts. Some travelers merely wish to see specific sights on their own (or perhaps bring a guide book with them) and enjoy the sights without commentary. Independent Tours are more geared toward that end.

We hope this information helps, and we hope you had an excellent time in London.

Our driver was prompt, courteous and thoughtful. However, the tour was very dark (moreso because of tinted windows) and there was very little commentary along the way. I would hope, even though London is very energy conscious, that there would be areas to talk about and to view that would give this tour some depth. We were lucky to have been able to see London during the day to give some perspective during this tour.
