Overview

The best way to see London is from an iconic London Black Cab. Add to this a qualified driver/guide and you have the full package. London Cabbies face one of the strictest and toughest examination processes known colloquially as The Knowledge. It can take up to 3 years for them to learn every road, street, lane, alley, bar, restaurant, statue, apartment block, Police Station, hotel, church, government building, train station, literally anywhere a paying customer would wish to be taken. They also need to know the quickest route.

On top of all that your driver is also a qualified guide having completed a written and oral exam through the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers. You will travel from west to east and get to feast on all the history, heritage and culture this vibrant city has to offer.

What a wonderful day with a very friendly and personable tour guide. Paul had a perfectly organized tour at our own pace to see all the best sights in London and a few secret ones I doubt would be included on other tours. The whole tour was in an imaculately kept roomy historical black London cab. Paul also kept us entertained and amused with all his historical and sometimes funny facts about word and phrase origins we use in the English language but never knew where they came from. And we fact-checked the wildest or funniest ones and he was always spot on! This tour was definitely worth every penny and quite enjoyable.

My family and I chose this tour in August last year. I was recommended this company by a friend who had previously used them. It was a fantastic experience which the family still reminisce about regularly. I’ve used your services all over the world but none as personal as this. It certainly wasn’t your generic sightseeing tour, Paul really brings the history to life. He was able to hone in on our interests and show us things he believed we would like to see. It was completely tailored to us. A very special day. I can’t recommend this tour and the services provided by this company enough.

My teenage son and I had a wonderful day with Paul. He knows his way around London and was very fun and informative. Paul made an effort to show us sites we were interested in, London highlights and hidden gems. I left my charger in his cab and he brought it back to the hotel and left it at the front desk (thanks). I would highly recommend this tour!

Paul is an excellent tour guide! He is extremely knowledgeable on everything London and knows the city like the back of his hand. His tour is the perfect way to knock out a lot of London in a short space of time, and it is just fun driving around in a black cabbie! Paul also knows how to expertly navigate seeing the changing of the guard. highly recommended.

Paul was absolutely fabulous, he thought of everything (including umbrellas), the timing for Changing of the Guard was impeccable! In fact, the whole day was timed beautifully, we got great value out of the personalised approach and saw a great deal more than we could have hoped for! Thank you Paul, we will be back!
