An amazing service from start to finish. From the moment Martin arrived at our door until our return we were treated to a unique experience. Even though we live in London Martin provided insights into the city of London that were new to us. He was so informative about the history, however at the same time was able to communicate in a way that engaged us all (this included two teenagers!).
I would totally recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see the sights of London but also learn about the history behind them.
The tour is based around your requests so it is bespoke to your needs.

Thank you Martin for enabling my son to have a wonderful Birthday during lockdown.

I could not recommend this tour enough. Billy is an excellent tour guide who not only knows his stuff, but his passion for it makes you enjoy the experience much more. As he leads you on your adventure around the capital he offers insightful knowledge at every turn, turns which i was allowed to choose as Billy offered us a customized tour to ensure we saw what we wanted as well. As we travelled around in a quintessential piece of london, we enjoyed many highlights of the beautiful city such as the hidden wonders as well as visiting many roman and medieval locations. I never realized how steeped in history the city was until Billy opened my eyes to it all. If you are considering a interactive, interesting and value for money tour of London, or simply have a few hours to spare, this is the place you want to be!

Our time with Billy in his Black Cab was AMAZING! This tour is a MUST to see the sights in London and get all the history/backstories associated with each landmark. Billy is a passionate and extremely knowledgeable guide. We learned so much and had so much fun! This isn't your typical "ride around in a car" tour either. Billy wants you to see things up close and personal, and your experience is enhanced by getting out of the cab and continuing on foot at many locations. We ultimately chose this experience over the hop-on-hop-off bus tour and we are so glad we did. The ability to set our own pace and experience London in a traditional Black Cab with a true local guide was worth every penny!

We took a tour with Martin in January 2020. He was so kind, personable, knowledgeable and fun. I definitely recommend this tour. My teenage kids also thought Martin was great, as did my 83-year-old mother. Very accommodating! Beautiful car, too!

My family and I had a wonderful time as Martin showed us around London right before everthing started to shut down. He was very friendy and thoughtful and took as much time as was needed to show us the many sites in wonderful London. I would highly recommend booking a tour as it was money well sepnt for the whole family.

We had our tour yesterday and it was a great day out. Door to door service which with kids makes it soooo much easier!! Our guide Billy was very knowledgable and threw in lots of fun and interesting facts. We made a whole day of it and stopped for lunch then carried on with the tour after.

Perfect tour for anyone - young and old!

Myself, my wife and grandchildren Grace and Billie had a fantastic 3 hour tour with Tom. Some short walks and lots of photo opportunities. A very knowledgeable and likeable young chap. The girls leant lots about the history and heritage of London. A trip with Tom is highly recommended if you're new to London. Far better than the tube or an open top bus.

Billy arrived promptly and our amazing day out had started. Throughout the journey Billy was a mine of very interesting information. We stopped often and learnt so much, even though we are both Londoners. A brilliant day out - if you are thinking about doing this tour go ahead and book it - you can’t help but have a wonderful day out.
