A Must Do Tour of London

My wife and I had limited time in London and it was our first time back in nearly 20 years. We'd seen a lot of the major sites, but it never hurts to see them again. So, we went... read more

Being a first time visitor to London, I'm not sure how my wife and I would have been able to see, learn, and experience so much of London in a short time. Michael was wonderful in every aspect - professional, courteous, and kind at all times. When our kids are old enough for a trip to London, we will definitely... More

It was excellent and we have seen things we had never seen before. (it was our 6 or 7th visit). Also famous houses in Streets where a bus cannot drive. Michael knows everything of the town and is a marvellous host. It was worth every penny.

Our family of three had a wonderful tour of London with Michael. Michael provides a very professional service and we gained so much knowledge of the history and iconic sights. Michael was really flexible in establishing an itinerary and accommodating any special requests. He made us feel really comfortable and his knowledge of London is incredible. We were really glad...

My wife and three children, ages 14, 12, and 8, recently returned from London. Weenjoyed Michael's 4 hour tour of London on our first full day, allowing our family to get a good lay of the land before embarking on our own exploration. Michael was very pleasant, thorough and informative with great information on all the sights we visited with... More

Michael's black taxi tour felt like a "Welcome to London" party. Within one hour of arriving we were touring the iconic landmarks of London. He created a very personalized tour of sights we were interested in seeing with additional special touches of little souvenirs along the way. He was prompt for pick up, a wealth of knowledge as well as... More

Michael's tour is really smartly laid out. He of course takes you to all the notable sites, but also points out things that are topical and newsworthy. I won't give them away here. He not only provides the tour with the typical facts and history, but provides personal context to the city as a lifelong Londoner. For those of us... More

We truly enjoyed Michael's tour. His cab is in pristine condition and he truly has a commanding knowledge of all things London. He was very polite and professional and even kept the attention of our children - ages 13 and 7 - which isn't an easy feat! Michael's black taxi tour was a great way to kick-off our London vacation... More
