Your fully qualified and highly experienced black cab driver is the perfect guide to take you through the streets of London. London's taxi drivers have to sit the toughest taxi exam in the world, and their inside knowledge of London is unsurpassed. They know every alley, street and short cut in London, as well as all the historic sights, palaces, museums, galleries, shops and markets.

Taking a Black Taxi Tour of London offers unrivaled personalized and flexible service. Your taxi collects you from your hotel and drops you off wherever you choose in central London when the two-hour tour is finished.

Ask your driver to take you along a route specially chosen by you. Or let your driver guide you around instead, stopping off at the major sights and stopping on request to take photographs. Your driver also provides a full commentary, packed with anecdotes you won't find in any guidebook!

Driver (Stuart) was very knowledgeable and showed us a lot of “secret London” things. Was very good with our kids and overall we had an amazing experience.

We were picked up right on time and whisked away on a wonderful tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable and knew just where to take us... Buckingham Palace, Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, London Bridge, Old London, etc.

Our driver, Mark, was prompt, kind, fun and just fabulous. I’ve been to London numerous times - but my teen not so much. He ferreted out some fun Harry Potter sites (for me, not her!) and really interesting little neighborhoods I’ve never had the chance to visit. This black cab tour really tied London together for me - I feel like I finally really know the lay of the land. And it was attention grabbing for my young travel partner, too!

Our family of 5 had a two hour tour with a great guide, Andy. He picked us up at our hotel and took us around the city to see the main sights. We were able to exit the car at times to walk and take pictures. Would highly recommend!

Stuart took my wife and I through a tour of the sites that normally tourist does not go to. Behind the scene places that has great history to it. He took us to an American Bar that was hidden in a square that we would have never found or see. His personality is amazing.

David was our guide and he was great. We told him what we had seen and what we were planning to see so he took us around to places we would have missed

professional and safe way in London to be driven to your designated wishes, interests and sights. we visited the homes and locations of the film NottingHill, interesting architural gems, locations concerning james bond and espionage, taxi was clean and our driver/guide had great humour!

Our 2hour tour with Stuart on 4/5/18 was so delightful we wished we had Chosen a 4 hour tour. We were whisked around Central London while listening to stories of places, people and Stuart's own take on special places. We saw the Westminster Cathedral which we knew nothing about and saw various gardens and historic sites as well as flats of famous people. Stuart graciously drove us up to Camden Locks which he recommended highly and.........he was so right. We might have missed this vintage, bohemian, pop-scene open air Market!! And the fish and chips were outstanding. We would hire Stuart to take us anywhere around London. He knows his city, how to drive it and to make every place interesting. A five star tour for sure.

A great tour! Stewart was our guide. He took us to lovely hidden places that really allowed us to experience London. We appreciated him not wasting time in traffic. If there was a jam he turned around and went another way. We felt this tour was well worth the price and he took pics of us too.

HIghly recommended! Our guide took us everywhere and even parked to let us get out and explore.

The tour was amazing and our driver was awesome. We learned a lot about the history of some areas in London. Next time I am in London will take the black taxi tour again. It was outstanding and so was our driver.
• Submitted 17 Nov 2017
Our driver was on time and very accommodating in getting us to the most important places we wanted to visit and take pictures. He took us to places that we did not know about and appreciate very much that he took us to those places.

We started out with a small list then let Stewart take the lead. He showed us parts of London we would never have seen on our own. Stewart has driven London for over 40 years. He knows it well. He told us historical facts as well as anecdotal stories. It was an awesome tour. He showed us all the different neighborhoods of London. I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants to see the real London away from the tourist sites. Thank you very much Stewart.

This is the best way to see all that London has to offer in a short time. Great, friendly driver!!

Our driver was Dave and he configured the tour for us. We like to get out of the taxi every once in awhile and he arranged this. In particular, one little courtyard that is right off the street, but you have to know it is there. We parked, walked through a narrow passage, and there it was. It has a rich and interesting history, which Dave described for us. This was our first day in London and we just wanted to get a feel for how things are laid out. Mission accomplished. As a bonus, Dave dropped us off at our afternoon tour location.

Our driver Stuart was knowledgeable and entertaining. He know London very well and provided a nice overview of the city.
• Submitted 17 Jul 2017
Excellent tour and driver was so good to us. He Suggested we reschedule to the next day because of a music festival that caused traffic that would cut short or time on the tour. We did and he was so knowledgable about sites and history. Highly recommended to get London overview and then decide what you want to do more in depth on the rest of your trip. He was great stopping for pictures we wanted to take

we have taken two Black Taxi tours of London and on both occasions the tours and our drivers were excellent. The next time we are in London we will definitely due another tour with the Black Taxi's its the only way to see London, there is so much more to see!!!!
• Submitted 11 May 2017
Really enjoyed an "insiders" tour of London. Stuart our driver was very friendly and knowledgeable. He took us to parts of London we otherwise would have missed. This tour is great if you are new to London, are short on time or want a more personalized introduction to the city.
• Submitted 26 Apr 2017
This tour was just what we needed having a very short time available in London. We hit all the major points of interest and our driver/guide Mark was very informative

David was amazing, energetic and full of fun facts. We had a great time and he brought to life so many historical events. Worth your time.
• Submitted 03 Dec 2016
Excellent tour, driver/guide David was very knowledgeable. On time pickup. Stonehenge (10 of 10) was my favorite, but Bath (9)and Windsor Castle (9.5) were nearly as good. It did take from dwan to dusk for our October 17 tour.
