What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Traditional Black Cab Tour of London's Hidden Treasures

Private Tour: Traditional Taxi Tour of London's Hidden Treasures

Depart from your central London hotel or prearranged meeting point in a classic black cab. Then sit back in the comfortable, padded seats and take in the sights as your private driver-guide whisks you around the city.

Pass by Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral, Trafalgar Square and other world-famous sights and attractions. You’ll stop outside each landmark to take photos and learn about it from your private guide.

Then, set off in search of the city’s little curiosities that most visitors don’t get to see. See London’s smallest houses and square, discover Henry VIII’s cow shed and tennis court, and visit shops that are more than 300 years old and still trading. You’ll also pass a medieval banquet hall, Sir Winston Churchill’s cigar chair, Roman baths and a house with fake windows.

Upgrade to include an additional hour of sightseeing, should you wish.

Your tour concludes in central London after three or four hours, depending on the tour option selected.

Everyone need to try a Black Cab ride. Our driver asked if we wanted a conventional tour or to see what he considered the best bits people don't get to see and we chose that option. We did not regret it as he led us around London's landmarks and special places. We were also lucky enough to come across The Horse Guards having a rehearsal for an upcoming special presentation to the Queen and our driver made it possible for us to stop and watch the rehearsal which gave us an extra special memory.

Gordon was our guide and he was amazing and knowledgeable about all things London. The cab was comfortable for the four of us and having a private guide was great. Highly recommend for the price!!!!

SUCH a great experience plus we had a super fun guide...Jason. He was full of fun facts and once we found out that he shared an interest in music we took us to see some great Beatles spots. Jason was also great with our kids 9 and 11yo. Thanks for a wonderful experience and memories we will have for a lifetime!

Our driver let us customize just what we wanted to see. He got us up right close and got great pictures. Only problem was his humor was somewhat annoying .


5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2017

This was a great tour - our guide Steve was really a joy to be around. We had the half-day tour of London and easily were able to see many of the main sights as well as a number of other hidden treasures. We like to take a lot of photos and Steve was great at helping us to get the most out of the opportunities. One of our favorites was a remake photo crossing Abbey Road in a similar way as the Beatles of album cover. One word of warning if you have this guide, he really knows his trivia, so you better brush up before the tour!!! One of the best parts of the tour is that it is your tour, you can customize so see what you like - don't be afraid to ask.

Absolutely recommend this tour and our driver, Steve. He was THE BEST. I scheduled this tour for me, my sister and her 16-year-old daughters. Steve was able to include all of the Harry Potter highlights, which delighted the teens, took us to Abby Road and every other possible highlight of the city. We did this on our first full day in London -- and recommend it to anyone with limited time in this city. Best tour I've taken in 40 years of travel!!!!!!
