Perfect Way to See London
What a wonderful way to see London! Andy was an absolute delight and made the tour extra fun. We got to see so many of the sights and stop and take photos. Great memories we’ll have from this trip. Everything from planning to the last minute of the tour exceeded my expectations. I definitely recommend this tour.

Friendly, informative and unhurried tour
Our guide Mark was friendly and welcoming from the start. Sought to accommodate specific requests and showed us some sights that we would otherwise never see. He was interesting, informative and gave us time to explore without making us feel we had to hurry up! Cab was spotless, and even better it was an electric one! Definitely recommend.

Highlight of our London Trip
Sep 2021 • Couples
We wanted a personal/bespoke tour of London, so contacted David via email and came up with our two hour tour.
Michael was our tour guide, he collected us from our hotel right on time and was very friendly and professional. We ran through again the landmarks etc we wanted to see. Michael advised we would fit them all in and not an issue if we went over time slightly. We were not sure we could see all our wish list so really, really pleased!
Michael was knowledgeable and passionate and we learnt a lot.
Also, great to be able to have opportunities to get out and take lots of photos.
This is definitely the way to see London.
A pleasure to spend two hours with michael

Absolute game changer, 100% recommend!
This tour was an absolute game changer! Having taken it upon myself to show my four year old the sights of London, I had completely underestimated how tired/grumpy she would be. We initially attempted the hop on hop off bus with not much luck and on a whim I phoned up and booked a two hour black cab tour! I would recommend this tour a thousand times over! Our driver Michael had the patience of a saint! Nothing was too much trouble, we got to see all the major landmarks hassle free with ample time to jump out and look around. I can honestly say that next time I’m in London this is the only tour I will book! Thankyou so much for a brilliant day out!!

London at it’s best!
We were completely looked after from booking to the end. David was very accommodating to our requirements and even when we had to make changes the evening before there was no problems. Mick our driver was booked to meet us at Battersea but we were delayed and so he came to us with no quibble whatsoever. We then went to our destinations and on the way he described different parts of the scenery. Not your usual tourist spots but things we would never have realised was there. We are very much looking forward to the next trip and can recommended Mick 100%. Thank you again for looking after us.

Excellent tour
Aug 2021 • Family
Our driver Michael was excellent, he met us on time, the tour was great, he stopped off wherever we wanted, and had a great knowledge to share with us. He was also great with the kids, and helped take pics of us where he was able to get out with us to show us landmarks! Thanks so much Michael for a fab afternoon, we would definitely recommend you to all our friends and family. 😊

Did the Tour of London with my family on Sunday 6th June '21. Our Driver was Michael. What a nice and knowledgeable person. I would highly recommend Michael and the Tour. Fabulous experience, great day and we have many lovely photos to cherish.

Don't hesitate to see London this way. Just a great time, go at a pace that you wish and see everything you want to see and experience.

Definitely 5 stars. Just great. Thanks Michael. Hope you have a wonderful summer with many bookings.
