We had a great time in London on our own, and thought we had seen a lot....but the highlight of the vacation was the tour that we did in the traditional London cab. Our driver was Andrew, and he was amazing! He knew the answer to every question we asked, he was genuinely proud of London, and he showed us EVERYTHING!...when we go back, I am definitely going to request him as our driver again!

Best way to get an overview of the key sites, of which we returned to many. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and had some wonderful stories to share!

We are a family of 4 and didn't really know what to expect with this tour, but it was fantastic. Our guide Jerry was fantastic. He had a great fund of knowledge and a fantastic personality. Even my teenager was laughing...and making that happen is not easy. He spent more than the allotted time and kept our attention every minute. A highlight of our week!

Best tour ever!!! This was absolutely our favorite tour of our entire trip. Our guide was phenomenal, and we were able to get our iconic abbey road photo! We also got a chance to stop for coffee, when we needed. This was amazing and absolutely worth it!

Our driver David was a pleasure. He was accommodating, knowledgable, thoughtful, resourceful and an excellent guide. David exceeded our expectations in every regard. Would not hesitate to employ him again. The black cab though roomcommas not air conditioned which would have alleviated the sweltering heat. I would not hire an unfair conditioned cab during the hot summer again. The driver/guide was terrific and though the comfort of the car was an issue in the unseasonal heat I would still rate this a five star experience.

Tour was a lot of fun! We were able to see so much more than if we had taken a bus tour. David was a great guide and we learned so much. He gave us some great recommendations for dining, other sights, etc. Highlight was being able to recreate the Beatles' Abbey Road crossing.
