Every step of our London Christmas Lights tour with Black Cab Heritage Tours was an excellent experience. I would definitely use them again. Rob Woodford, who kindly helped us with all the information and booking was very quick to respond and very helpful and accommodating throughout the process even when we needed to change the date due to unforeseen circumstances. Barry Ivens, our tour host and guide was funny, informative, and very very enthusiastic. He really went out of his way to make sure we had the best experience and we got to see the best and most places. He took us to lots of interesting places including quite a few hidden/less known spots. He shared interesting information throughout the tour. And he was kind to take plenty of photos throughout the evening. We really had a great time! The electric black cab was very spacious, the glass roof was brilliant to view the Christmas lights. Thank you Barry and Rob for our wonderful experience!

We went on a Christmas lights tour. Our guide Stella was delightful and very clever at working through the traffic so that we could see the wonderful displays. She was also quite knowledgeable about the history and famous figures, and shared a variety of stories. We highly recommend this company. They communicated promptly, made the booking process easy, and exceeded our expectations!

Wonderful night with family sightseeing the London Christmas Lights and attractions and special thanks to driver / guide Rachel and office staff at Black Cab Heritage Tours for making sure all the arrangements were so easy. Rachel was a great host and added to the whole experience with her EV cab decorated with lights and Bluetooth speaker for our Christmas songs! We are all planning some more visits to London based on some of the “hidden gems” discovered and recommendations from Rachel.

We absolutely loved our Christmas Lights tour with Dennis, he was knowledgeable, responded to requests from the children, showed us a load of places I don't think we would have seen otherwise and took loads of family photos of us too! We also loved the panoramic roof. Seeing the lights in this way was a much more relaxing experience than other options, highly recommended!
