See London’s iconic sights from a variety of vantage points on a black cab tour that goes above and below ground. With a knowledgeable driver, descend to the city’s subterranean tunnels and climb to vertiginous viewing platforms offering sweeping vistas of the English capital. Climb the spiral stairs of the Monument to the Great Fire of London; gaze at the glittering River Thames as you travel over it on a cable car; and marvel at the elegant dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral, an architectural masterpiece by Sir Christopher Wren. Receive the undivided attention of your guide on this private tour.
  • Private black taxi tour of London, seeing incredible city sights from above and below
  • Explore London’s underground tunnels with your expert guide and see a church crypt
  • Climb the 311-step staircase inside the Monument to the Great Fire of London
  • Enjoy unforgettable views of the dome of St. Paul’s Cathedral from a little-known vantage point
  • Ride on the Thames Cable Car across the River Thames to Greenwich
  • Hotel pickup and drop off from your centrally located London hotel
Greet your courteous driver at your centrally located London hotel and climb aboard a shiny black cab destined for the city’s secretive and subterranean tunnels. Sink into the car’s comfortable seats and receive an intriguing introduction to London’s history from your driver. 
Stop intermittently to explore parts of an underground network of tunnels and visit an eerie subterranean church crypt. Discover the important function of the tunnels during the Victorian era and hear tales of soldiers roaming the underground city during the World Wars. 
Return to sea level to ascend to the vertiginous summit of the Monument to the Great Fire of London, the world’s tallest free-standing column, and climb the 311 steps to the top. On arrival, gasp at incredible views of London and its scenic environs and then head to St. Paul’s colossal cathedral to gaze up at its dramatic white dome.
Opt to purchase a ticket to the top of a tower in Westminster Cathedral and enjoy unrivaled views of iconic monuments like Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament. Choose to cross the River Thames on a modern cable car for an additional charge, and then return to your hotel after four hours of sightseeing in the city.

What a wonderful morning. Andrew was our driver. He couldn't have been more accommodating or knowledgeable. We did the over and under tour and would not have known about some of the things we saw. One of our party booked a second.

Very impressive tour and guide. Hotel pick-up and drop-off are definitely a plus. Lots of great photo opportunities with stops not on the usual tours. I would definitely do this again. The company worked with our schedule as there were many road closures the day we had booked due to an early morning race through the city. I was very impressed with the service and the tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide Gordon was exceptional and gave us a very personalized tour which we really appreciated. Gordon was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Thee was not question that he could not answer. We would recommend this tour to our friends and request Gordon again.

This tour was fabulous. We only had about 6 hours in London, so this was a great way to get to see the most. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, helpful, and willing to accommodate special requests. We took the 4-hour tour, then added on 2 more hours because we were having such a great time!

Easily the best tour we have ever had; but not because of the sights. We have been to amazing locations and seen breathtaking things. But this private tour is something we will splurge on in the future! Our wonderful guide, Steve, took us all over London to places we never knew existed and some 'staples.' However, even with the 'staples' he knew where to get the unusual perspectives and absolute best photographs! He wasn't a clock watcher either! He was at our hotel in advance of our official start time and kept the tour going well after the posted end time. He was simply amazing!! Well worth the high price tag (for 2); if you have a few people its a must! It might still be a little higher than a group tour, but OMG - is it worth it!!
