Tour guide was FANTASTIC!! He was very informative and stopped to let us take pictures. Pointed out all of the well known icons as well as others. We were scheduled for the 3:30 pm tour and were not sure if we would make it to the hotel on time. Guide was understanding and offered to make the time later if needed. Would HIGHLY recommend this tour to everyone.

Thank you,

We had a great time! Our chauffeur was so nice, knowledgeable and eager to answer all our questions. Attentive to all our needs and requirements. Congratulations for this service which we will highly recommend to our friends back in France.

Outstanding tour. The taxi cab tour guide was excellent. Highly recommended for a quick introduction into London.

Our Black Cab tour was amazing! Since we had done a day with the Hop on Hop off our driver took us to
places not accessible by the buses. We saw wonderful out of the way streets that we wouldn't know existed had it not been for him. He also showed us a few of the major 'attractions' and added very interesting information about each. The cab was very comfortable and the driver had no qualms about stopping for photo opportunities.

My two daughters and I only had the afternoon in London and took the two hour tour. It was full of information and a lot was taken in. It did not seem rushed either. Our driver Keith was great. It was a very pleasant two hours. I enjoyed talking to Jeffrey on the telephone when I needed to contact them. They are all very nice people. If we ever return to London with more time we will still take this tour. Excellent.

This tour was exceptional! Our wonderful driver/tour guide, who was a London local who picked us up from our AirBNB flat in Soho, was very knowledgeable and we got a great overview of the major highlights of London in a couple of hours. I would highly recommend anyone to take this tour when you first arrive in London to get an idea of the layout of the city and especially if you not up for a great deal of walking. We did it just after arriving in the city. Alternatively, anyone only stopping in London for a few hours would find this useful for a good quick tour to see all of the best of London.
