What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Traditional Black Cab Tour of London’s Christmas Lights

Tour London's Christmas lights in style

Greet your private driver at your central London hotel, and then hop inside the back of a classic black cab. Relax into the taxi’s cushioned seats and gaze out of the window as you travel down streets lined with twinkling Christmas decorations.
Cruise through areas like Mayfair, Chelsea, Belgravia and Kensington, whose upmarket boutiques boast some of the capital’s most iconic annual Christmas window displays, and pass top London attractions including the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye and the Tower of London.
Continue to Regent Street and Oxford Street, and hop out of the cab to soak up the festive atmosphere and get an up-close at the shop windows and lights. Your tour will then conclude either back at your hotel or at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, where you can ice skate, try out the rides and sip mulled wine (all at own expense) — it’s up to you.

This was one of my favorite tours. The lights were very pretty, of course, but our guide whose name I think was Colin was so good. He took us to some out of the way places and was an excellent guide. He knew a lot about the history of some of the various stops. Highly recommend this tour.

Our driver arrived on time, was a delight to work with and we were pleasantly surprised by the history of England, London, and various neighborhoods! So it was more than just looking at lights! He was most knowledgeable and gave us a great tour! The time went fast, and he added to the tour to personalize it some for my husband, once he found out he was retired military! I would highly recommend this tour, and Andrew as your driver!

Great way to see the Christmas lights. Very entertaining. Steve was a great guide!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2017

Steve delivered! He enthusiastically and energetically took us to the highlights of the city's holiday lights- and made sure he photographed us at all the stops! He was a super guide, knew all the streets and skillfully parked near the lights so we never had more than a few steps to cross the street. The streets were absolutely packed with holiday traffic- pedestrian and vehicle- and Steve maneuvered adeptly and safely. He was prompt, cheerful and made us feel like we were very special guests! A great evening- lights and sights we'd never seen before! We had an early 4pm departure, but dark already. We were picked up at our zone 1 restaurant and dropped at our hotel, after a final photo of me in the driver's seat of the black cab!
