My husband and I with our 3 girls visited London in December last year. We booked Michael's black taxi tour with the recommendation of my husband's cousin and family who joined a half day tour with Michael. He responded my emails quickly and picked us up with his very clean black taxi on time. During our 4-hour-tour, Michael has showed... More

We selected this tour based on the reviews from Tripadvisor and they were absolutely correct. Michael was very knowledgeable and attentive to us. He was truly there to try and provide exactly what you wanted. I assumed it would cover the main 'tourist' attractions but much to my surprise it was much, much more. Many of the sights we never...

My husband and I contacted Michael just a few weeks before our trip to organize a half-day tour the morning of our first full day in London. We emailed back and forth a few times prior to the trip to organize details of what we were interested in seeing and where we wanted him to drop us for lunch. He... More

After reading rave reviews of Michael's Black Taxi Tour on tripadvisor, I decided to contact him (via email) and inquire about his services. He was always prompt to email back, and with great detail. From that alone, you can already tell how professional he is with his service. And on the tour itself, Michael was beyond professional - he was... More

I read reviews about Michael and his London Black Taxi Tours on Tripadvisor and contacted him to book one for my partner and daughters. Michael was incredibly helpful and efficient when I made the booking. Once in London, Michael arrived at the hotel on time with a beautiful, shiny new Black Taxi and afforded us a wonderful welcome to London.... More

This is the perfect way to see London early in your visit to this city. We did it on a Saturday and it was really quiet and low traffic...but the guide knows the city so well he will make the most of whatever day you choose. Truly awesome.

I contacted Michael for a half day tour almost last minute and fortunately he was available. Michael was extremely nice, thorough, thoughtful and knows every corner of the city and its history. I always look to see any city in the eyes of the locals, and that is what I appreciated the most of Michael's service, despite the fact that... More

We eloped from Canada and contacted Michael a couple of months before we arrived. We booked a full day tour for him to pick us up at the hotel in the morning, take us to the town hall and then drive around for the day to see the city and hop out for photos. Michael was very thorough and detailed... More
