He was very knowledgeable about London and you could tell that he really loved his job. Our family consisted of six people, ages 24-62 and we all had... More

We booked three cars and proceeded to follow each other through the streets of London for several hours! It was a great way to see the city, and part of the fun was stopping in unique hidden places for "story time" - I would do it again in a heartbeat!

I can't believe three of us plus the driver fit in the Mini! Our driver was so hilarious, yet informative of all the hightlights in London. They are very accommodating and offer a light-hearted historical tour of the main part of London. I don't think we ever stopped laughing! And he let us stop and do the Abbey Road walk... More

If you read my reviews, you know I tend to like em or loathe em. This tour was the coolest way to see London. It was my coworkers first time in the City. She was blown away! I sat in the back seat most of the three hour tour (I am 6'3"😆). Our driver could not have been a better... More

This was a birthday surprise for my friend, I had told her she would need to wear a jump suit for the activity I had planned, so she was delighted when we were picked up in Lulu the classic Mini. We zipped around the streets with Jay our driver and guide who entertained us with a running commentary on all... More

Just got through with our four hour tour with Samantha and can't do her enough justice... What a fun afternoon zipping around all the greater London neighborhoods, learning fun factoids and buzzing by all the places we wanted to visit / stop. Only made better by Samantha our guide who is charming, funny, full of information and personality. Highly recommend... More

Both drivers were friendly, informative, fun and took us to places that we would not have seen otherwise; including somewhere to graffiti legally and they provided pens for us to do it too!! Add to the above a bar of gold in one of the... More

We were actually a day late to London and we were going to miss our tour. They were so accommodating and changed our tour date and allowed us to do the 4 hour tour instead of the 2. Samantha was amazing! So personable and so educated on London. I traveled with my two children and they just loved her. My... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
