Travel around the English capital in an iconic black cab and pass by the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and other top attractions.

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 cowshed 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.

Our tour guide was super knowledgeable and made it a ton of fun for our teens. His knowledge of the city was vast, he incorporated the Beatles, and other music icons and just seemed to know the perfect amount of time for each stop. Favorite tour of our trip! Thank you!

Tour was OK to get some of the 'hidden secrets' of London, but we didn't really see many of the major attractions.

A great way to see the sights you want to see in London without getting on and off a bus. My husban cannot walk far so this was an excellent opportunity to visit the places we wanted to see, then rest in the cab while driven to our next chosen location.

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!
