We had gone on a tour with Michael at the beginning of August. It was our first day in London, and it was by far one of the best. Michael was so knowledgeable on the history of London, and all of the landmarks. He provided helpful packets with more information as well. He gave us little souvenirs during the tour... More

We flew in from Australia on our first European family holiday. This was the perfect way to give our jetlagged kids an overview of London. Much better than having to deal with crowds and a prestructured group tour. Michael showed us a lot and gave us a great snapshot of the city.

Our friends were getting married in London (we are all in Canada) and arranged a tour on their big day with Michael. I contacted him via email and asked him to help with a surprise for the happy couple. I asked him to buy a bottle of champagne and a card. He went to allot of trouble to order the... More

Took the four hour tour with Michael this fall. We were travelling with our 3rd grade daughter and wanted her to see the sights quickly. My wife and I had previously visited London. It was great. He is flexible and can tailor the tour to whatever you desire, including keeping it interesting for a child. He is prompt, and very... More

A must-to-do in London, Michael is someone that really knows and loves his city and he is transmitting that in his tours. Visit well programmed and organized, I would recommed more than the two hours with him because it will not be enough to enjoy the experience. I will do it again whenever I come back to this fabulous city.

Last week we had a 4 hour tour with Michael. He met us in front of our hotel, exactly when he said he would. The taxi was very clean and comfortable with enough seating for 4. Michael took us around to not only places that are well known, but also to places off the beaten track. We really enjoyed listening... More

Two weeks ago, a colleague and I experienced a tour with London Black Taxi Tours. What an incredible experience!!! Michael is a wealth of information and provides modern and historical facts throughout the entire four hour tour. During the tour, Michael learned that my father is a huge Beatles fan, so he altered the tour "mid-stream" to drive us by... More

Great tour with lots of flexibility and special touches from driver/owner Michael. I been coming to London for years but this time was traveling with a friend. How to show the city with so little time? This was the perfect way, and I learned many new spots and historical perspectives myself.

This is a great tour when you want a quick and comprehensive view of London, all in the privacy of your own Black Cab. Yes; Michael, his Knowledge and his Cab will take you around the area and show you the sites. You can also request what you want to see, where you want to stop for pictures, or just... More
