We just spent a wonderful day with Ray on a classic London highlights tour. He picked 6 of us (all 60+ years of age) up at the Greenwich Pier after we got off a Viking Cruise, and spent over 6 hours driving us around the highlights of the city. He's so very knowledgeable, and sprinkled our tour with fun facts about the sights we were seeing. Very accommodating, and made sure we were all comfortable with the activity level, needs for biobreaks, etc. At the end of the tour, he dropped us at our hotel. Also, one of his colleagues took our bags to the hotel for a modest fee, so they were there waiting for us. It was a fantastic day. I highly recommend! If you only have a day or two in the city, this is a great way to see the highlights and learn some of the history and lore. If you have more time to spend, it would be a fantastic start to your trip to get a bit of an orientation before setting out on your own.

Had an absolutely lovely time with enough space for 5 adults in the back - Really appreciate the time, effort and enthusiasm our guide, Tim, put forth throughout our entire journey making it an extremely memorable one. The information provided was one of a kind and due to our guide’s nearly 25 years of taxi and 6 years of guide experience, it made it even more insightful and rare opportunity to experience parts of london history that might otherwise be missed - all landmarks that were discussed at the beginning of the trip were reached including photo opportunities and chances to leave the taxi to walk about with additional commentary throughout. Tim went above and beyond on all aspects of service and we couldn’t recommend this tour enough. Thank you for the memories!

The knowledge of our travel guide Ray was far away from our expectation - just spectacular - accompanied with appropriate sense of humor, so we were able to truly enjoy the tour. Sightseeing was arranged in the way we experienced the main charms of London. Our time was very limited, but we were allowed to customize tour to our desire not only with time, but also we were allowed to see the places on our "want to see" list. The whole positive experience was finalized with Ray, who quickly recognized we may need some additional assistance navigating throughout London. We did not ask, but Ray without hesitation made himself available to go the extra mile to get us on rest or our trip in the UK. Great experience throughout the whole trip, starting from booking with Angela, who asked the right questions and made much needed suggestions to make this trip truly memorable. If ever needed, we would not hesitate to use this company again.

We had a very short visit to London and the weather was chilly, so we decided a private tour in a black taxi was the best way to enjoy our limited time in the city. And we were right! Our driver, Andy, was knowledgeable, pleasant and funny and we thoroughly enjoyed his stories and all the sights we were able to fit in two hours, including short walks to or at some sites. We were comfortable in the warm cab and were able to tailor the tour to our interests. I would definitely recommend!

Our tour guide was Ray, and the only reaction I can give is WOW, the wealth of knowledge this guy possesses makes you think he is the human ‘google’. I was ever so impressed how Ray got my 13 year old and 11 year old involved and engaging during the tour and realised he tapped into their inquisitive nature and also how responsive they become.

I am very grateful to Ray for the courtesy he showed my family and for wanting to understand our expectation of the tour.

The tour was a great experience that my kids wanted to stay on longer and therefore, we have booked our second tour in July with Black Taxi Tour London and specifically requested for Ray.

Thank you Black Taxi Tour London for an amazing experience!!

We were recommended to Black Taxi Tours by family who had done a layover tour and LOVED it. I almost didn’t book, planing out a day-long walking tour and looking up some basic history. Man am I glad I didn’t! Listening to Barry talk about the city and it’s history was a real treat! Walking the city afterwards was great, don’t get me wrong, but there is so much rich history we never would have known, and so much context that would have been lost without a helpful and knowledgeable guide like Barry!

The start of our tour was delayed because our guide was lost. After phoning the company a new guide arrived with in 10 minutes and we set off to discover London. Since there were no particular sights that we wished to see, our guide showed us "his" city. During the following hours we learned a lot about the history of London, its boroughs, the Royals, the merchants of London, Harry Potter, James Bond .....
Besides the well known points of interest we went to places that we alone would never have looked at or found.
The tour was entertaining, informative and interesting and we recommend it to everyone visiting London.

We had a great day with our guide Ray. He was personable, flexible and quite knowledgeable. We explored historic sights mixed in with Harry Potter sites as per our wishes. He kept our 8 and 10 year olds engaged, curious and energized (and their parents too). This was a fun and safe way to explore and learn about London!

What an amazing experience we had. I am a Londoner through and through but Rachel did not stick to the same old facts she took us around some real gems and pointed out landmarks that you would not believe still even exist. The day was themed around me being from The Elephant and Castle and you would not believe the things they managed to tie in, including a surprise visit to my birthplace (blue plaque please) on the way home. Thoroughly recommend this trip, even if you think you have good London knowledge. ♥️
