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

Coming from Paris on the Chunnel, we only had six hours to spend in London allowing us just a snippet of time to get in all the highlights of this wonderful city. We decided the only way to go in style was by black taxi and chose Michael of London Black Taxi Tours because of the good ratings on Tripadvisor.... More

Michael catered our tour to our interests. When he learned of my son's interest in cars, he pointed out all... More

I chose Michael of London Black Taxi Tours because of his high rating in Tripadvisor. Michael truly deserves his rating! I contacted Michael about eight months in advance and he promptly answered my emails even if the tour was still months away. I told him about what interest us most about London, i.e., Sherlock Holmes, Harry Potter and the Beatles,... More

The morning spent with Michael was a comfortable, interesting learning experience. Every question I asked, Michael had an answer for. His knowledge of the city kept our attention and and satisfied the curiosity. We knew Something of London by the end of the tour. Thank you, Michael
