Soooo much fun had in a very short 1.5 hours. Well worth the money and VERY educational. We learnt a lot about London from our driver. Think you know London? Think again ... this tour will take you places you never knew existed and tell you things you wouldn't be able to findout from Wikipaedia ... well done SmallcarBIGCITY team.

My sister and I booked the 2-hour tour for our first afternoon in London. This was a perfect introduction to cover a lot of the city in a short amount of time - and great to help us get a feel for different areas of the city so we could easier navigate other days on our own - and definitely...

I recommend this tour to anybody even those that think they know London. Our tour guide was great, knew the city, took us where only a mini-cooper could go, learned stuff that had no clue on. Worth twice what we paid!!!!

Our group hired 5 minis for a 3 hour tour around London. It turned out that as well as sight seeing we were also a tourist attraction! It is a bit like the Italian job meets London. I admit I was nervous about this trip but need not have worried the driving was fabulous and the drivers were lovely young... More

We had a great experience with tour guide Jay. He was very informative and very funny, the 2 hour tour zipped by very quickly. We got to tour London and see many places that big tour buses would never get to go, that was really special. It was the best way to see downtown London by far! Highly recommend for... More

On behalf of the 14 ladies you took round London in a convoy of 5 minis on Saturday morning. Thank you for a fab tour. We had a laugh jumping in and out the minis at the different tourist spots. We saw Abbey Road- The Beatles. We admired the panoramic view of London from Primrose Hill and saw the Poppies... More

Always wanted a cabbies' tour of London. But when we found original miniCooper private tour we jumped at it. WHAT A GREAT DAY!!! Our guide/driver Tony was an unbelivably knowlegeable and wonderful host! A brilliant way to see London for our first trip and means to see so much and orient to the city and driving in London. Recommend with... More

I traveled all the way here from America with my wife on our honeymoon, and taking the Harry Potter tour of London was something that just had to be done! We met up with Rosey and driver Ed near our hotel and had the time of our lives. Ed was very friendly and never ran out of interesting things to... More

This was a Red Letter Day our 16 yr old daughter won in a raffle and what a win!! She thought she would share it with her old man and Mum. This experience was a perfect way to see the bits of London you would not normally see. You can visit the tourists bit anytime but see and hear the... More
