This trip covered a lot of territory and the driver really knew his stuff - he was congenial and well informed. It provided a good overview so that I was able to go back the next day to the places I was particularly interested in. I would suggest though that particularly with lady passengers that the driver take note when they say they love to shop, and take a more leisurely drive through the famed shopping areas - we tended to zoom through, and I would have liked to see a bit more of these. My driver Jerry did take a few good pics of me which made me very happy!
this was nice experience as well. we had a lovely long taxi tour. we got out of the taxi any time we wanted to take pictures! the taxi driver was amazing! he knew all about it! we even catch up the changing of the Queens guards! lovely!
The tour suited our situation as one member of our group was disabled. The taxi can also take you to places that the tour buses can't. Overall a very good experience.
An excellent idea, very personal and the driver was very knowledgeable! The taxi tour gave access to areas that can't be reached by the usual tour bus. Would highly recommend it!
Took a "customized" private tour of North London's Hampstead Heath and Highgate areas. The idea was to see exclusive residential areas that were "off the beaten path". It truly was a most interesting tour. Our guide, an older gentlemen, was very experienced and right on time. He knew exactly what we were looking for. As the tour progressed, it was as if we were all old pals. Although expensive, if you're looking for something really unique to do, this is a great idea, and we would definitely do it again.
This was fabulous. Our driver was really knowledgeable and it meant we could go directly to the most important places. We even got down side streets we never would have seen on a tour bus. Bit cramped for 5 but perfect for 4 or less.
Car was comfortable. Tour guide was on time and very knowledgeable. By the end of the tour though we felt a bit overwhelmed by all of the facts we had been told throughout the tour. Would have preferred if he asked what we wanted to see and know about, but a very nice experience regardless!
While very expensive because we needed it for a Saturday, our guide was very knowledgeable about the city and willing to take us anywhere we pleased. If you will part with the money, it was way better than any crowded tour bus. We were able to pull right up front of major landmarks and hop out for pictures.
This tour provided a good opportunity to get a "snapshot" look at the major sights of central London. Our driver took us to many locations with the two-hour time period. It was very beneficial in helping us decide which locations we wanted to devote more time to a later date.
Taxi driver very good and friendly. Seemed to know a lot about London and the attractions, but took us to places we didn't ask to see, which meant we didn't have time to see what we wanted to see.
It was like a history school excursion. We wanted to see as many sights in the 2 hours that we could but instead our driver gave us a history lesson wasting time at one sight well over 30 minutes talking about something that he obviously was interested in. The tour was described as sights of London not history lesson. Waste of money not at all what I wanted.
