        Would totally recommend a tour with Billy
        The whole family had a wonderful day out. Billy is super knowledgable and taught us loads about London even though we have lived here for decades. Our two boys (4 & 7) were really excited about travelling in their own private taxi and seeing the sights. They were thrilled with lunch at the Rainforest cafe which we stopped at for a few hours. I would highly recommend Billy’s tour & those with an interest in history will love the opportunity to chat to Billy about emojis impressive knowledge of the city’s rich history.

        Loved every moment thank you Billy
        We have just finished a tour of London with Billy of London History Taxi Tours and it was fantastic. Billy gave us a discounted tour after we saw an advertisement for a code on Facebook and looked them up on Tripadviser. He took us to all the major landmarks and so much more! Me and my partner have lived around London all of our lives and I don’t recall a single thing he told us we didn’t know... it was brilliant. The tour wasn’t expensive and we got our money’s worth. We recommend it to everyone, especially because he was so accommodating and even dropped us at Borough Market at pub he recommended whilst he waited Was nothing boring about the experience and we are more inclined to visiting more of London and also considering his “East End” tour he mentioned. Thank you Billy, especially for the City part!

        Great Value For Money!
        Lived in the London area for around 15 years and can say this experience was fantastic. So much we didn’t know and glad we opted for a personal tour. We had Billy for the 4 hour tour package in Central London and we saw more than we hoped! From pointing out the highlights of London, providing facts that none of us knew to showing some truly amazing hidden gems. When we contacted LHTT, they told us the tour could be catered to our interests and it was worth every penny. Would strongly recommend this service to anyone visiting London or even just wanting to get to know the city intimately 5 stars

        Fabulous Tour. Excellent Customer Service-A must do tour with Martin Fook!
        I wanted to do a sightseeing tour of London on our first day. I saw the Classic Taxi Tour with Martin and decided to book it. I received immediate communication from the company. I detailed what I wanted to see (a long list!) and Martin was very accommodating. I inquired about being picked up at the airport (and return trip) and Martin was able to provide this service for us. We were thankful that Martin could transport us back to the airport a few days later as we knew he was very reliable and would get us there in time. Martin is a very knowledgeable, competent and friendly tour guide. He suggested other sites along the way during our tour, providing time for photos and even took a few of us! I cannot recommend this tour and Martin strongly enough. We saw more in our tour time than we could ever have seen on our own. Martin's knowledge of the history of London and the sites even impressed my relatives who live near London! All in all, this is a must do tour, especially if you do not have time on your own to visit all of the sites on your own. Martin's tour was the highlight of our trip to London! His customer service is also impeccable.

        Great value for money
        Had Billy giving me the intro tour around London - he was lovely and friendly and had so much knowledge. Best value for money - so many of these tours can be over expensive! Highly recommend

      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!

      Our guide, Billy, picked us up at the appointed hour and filled the next 4.5 hours with so much history and fun-filled facts. His knowledge was amazing. His taxi was immaculate and extremely comfortable. Beyond the usual facts you might expect to hear, Billy added so much detail that the history became alive. We especially appreciated that he modified the tour to fit our interests rather than giving us a pre-planned approach. His kindness in accommodating my somewhat limited walking abilities was greatly appreciated. Fun, relaxing, informative and worth every penny (or pence). Don't miss out on this very special experience when in London. Billy is an amazing tour guide!!

      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.

      We had the opportunity to spend the day with Billy for his History of London tour. We went away with our brains buzzing with new facts and figures and a new appreciation for London and British History.
      Billy knows his stuff and is a wonderfully kind and fun guy to boot. If we could have spent our entire trip with Billy we would have. If you want to know anything London, Billy's your guy.

      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.
