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

Had an hour tour in 2 minis with family and wish we had more time! 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!!

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

Wow. Lulu and Howard showed us around this amazing city and we had a blast. We zoomed through small streets, honked at pedestrians to get out of the way as we zipped by them. Four hours of absolute fun. Howard was very knowledgeable and had some excellent stories about London's history. We saw some street art, the Docklands, and he... More

Amazing 90 minutes charging around London in a vintage Mini Cooper. Our driver Jay was very knowledgeable and was full of funny and interesting stories. Unlike a normal bus tour you get to go off the normal tourist trail and really get to learn the darker and more interesting aspects of London's history. If we could have continued for another...

Our family rented two cars to 'divide and conquer' touring around London. Half the family visited Abbey Road area/Beatles/music interests along with the mainstay London highlights. The rest of the family toured Harry Potter/Dr. Who and the mainstay London highlights. I cannot say enough good things of the drivers and uniqueness of this tour. We only had two full days... More

If you're looking for a great overview of London in a fun, fast paced way, book this tour. The guides are fun, informative, and will answer all your endless questions. This is a really unique city tour because the antique Mini Coopers can squeeze in places that no other tour bus can. My favorite part was seeing the old train... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
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.
