Description: See London and its hidden treasures with a guide who knows London first...
See London and its hidden treasures with a guide who knows London first hand. I am a London licensed black taxi driver and qualified City of London as well as a Black Taxi Guide. There are many sightseeing tours to choose from on the website, including half day and All Day VIP Tours of London, Harry Potter Tours of London and Oxford. Also on the website are tours to Oxford/Cambridge/Bath/ Glastonbury/Stonehenge/Windsor/Hampton Court as well as tours to our beautiful Essex, Suffolk and Kent villages.

While on a family trip to London, Adrian made us feel right at home, from the moment he picked us up at our hotel until evening when he dropped us off at the location of our choosing. While I enjoy having a tour guide when first visiting a new place, some of my family members do not prefer to sightsee... More

My husband and I spent the day with Martin and we had the absolute best day in London. Martin picked us up at our hotel and was very friendly and easy to get along with. I liked how he asked us what we had already seen and what we hadn't seen and if there was anything specific that we had... More

We did a four hour tour with Adrian and it was great. He tailored the experience to meet our families desires, with the wife keen on seeing Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace up close on foot. Got to see one of the royals leaving Kensington under motorcycle escort, and also saw a horse drawn carriage changing of the ambassador ceremony... More

Adrian was a gem even before we arrived in London, answering questions about using the Underground, places to visit, etc. He arrived at our hotel promptly & our tour began. We learned so much history of London & the UK! We went all over, from the sundial with its visual history of London, to Buckingham Palace, to the Gherkin, &... More

We booked a 3-hour tour with Adrian. he tried to squeeze in as much attraction as possible. I'm not sure if the London traffic we experienced was normal. He gives good explanation of the sites. The taxi is clean and smells good.

Adrian was wonderful to work with from my first inquiry. Easy reservation and payment too! But the real gem was when he picked us up from our hotel the day we arrived in London. We were jet lagged but he rallied us for this wonderful tour. Adrian designed our tour based upon two of us having been to London years... More

the tour is awesome. They cover most of the well known places such as Buckingham palace, London eye, Tower of London etc...The best thing is that you can get down where ever you want and take the next bus again...
