Cannot say enough about Michael and his tour! He was prompt, courteous and by far the best guide we've had. His knowledge of London was amazing and showed what a great historian he is! We booked the 4 hour tour. Michael not only showed us the major attractions but also smaller less known ones as well (which we loved)! My... More

My Thai friends and I went London in mid Jun and 2 of them never visited UK before. I arranged a 4 hour touring around with Michael and it was of super good value. First, Michael was very considerate to let me know 2 weeks in advance the biggest demonstration going to happen from 12:00 - 15:00 around Westminster area.... More

Michael picked us up at 9:30 at our hotel on June 4th, 2015. We found him to be a great London historian. He took us to all the major attractions that London has to offer. In addition, he took us to Trafalgar Square which I had requested because I showed him a photo of my father that was taken in... More

Whole experience from beginning to end was brilliant. Michael picked us up from hotel promptly at 9am, within minutes we were on our way. He was a really nice guy who made us feel comfortable from the start, his knowledge of London and it's sites was second to none, with the added bonus of him taking us off the beaten... More

Michael picked us up at our hotel in Kensington at 10:00am the first full day of our stay in London. Couldn't have asked for a nicer guide or a nicer tour. We saw everything that we wanted to see and much more. We asked to be dropped off at a restaurant on Trafalgar Square which he did. He recommended and... More

Michael was such an outstanding tour guide. He is personable, humorous, and a London historian. We saw all the famous tourist sights and some really interesting lesser known ones in a very unhurried fashion. He is very accommodating to what you want to see and how long you want to be there. My wife and I took the half-day tour... More

Our son and daughter-in-law had their honeymoon in London two years ago and came back full of compliments for the great tour they had with Michael Churchill and London Black Taxi Tours. Although we had been to London once before with a tour group, we decided that we would sign up with Mr. Churchill again when all four of us... More

We had an excellent time with Black Taxi Tours and Dave Cannell - he knew Everything there was to know about London and had an answer to every question we had. And we had some good laughs aswell. A great way to experience London and to get the facts at the same time.

Hello Ljolsson67 I am glad you enjoyed your tour in London but unfortunately you have posted your review on the wrong page. My name is Michael and I do not have anybody else working for me. It would be nice for the other company if you could have this review posted on to their page. Thank you Michael More

Best stop was watching the guard & band preparing for the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. Michael pointed out a great spot to stand for the action. The band played "New York - New York" making us feel at home. Tour was relaxing yet so full of exciting places and information. Last stop was "The Grenadier" pub for... More
