The tour guide, Rob, and his immaculately restored mini made my trip to the capital an exceptional one! Zipping around while telling me about the city and its history made it one trip I won't forget in a hurry. Forget open top bus tours, a tour of this kind is unique and lots more entertaining! Thanks guys (:

I have been a fan of Mini's for a long time and this trip didn't fail to disappoint. My first trip in an old style Mini Cooper designed by Paul Smith was fabulous!

I booked the Italian Job Tour for my boyfriend's birthday as a surprise. The tour was more than great and amazing! Our driver Andrew told us stories we couldn't believe, which made London more special as it was before. But we weren't sure about the ways he took, cause he told us "it's legal", but they didn't really seem so...... More

I surprised my girlfriend with this for valentines and I am so glad i did! Andrew our driver was brilliant and the whole experience was perfect. We had a tour round the city and then were dropped off at our restaurant for dinner. Very insightful and a great way to view our wonderful city. Book up it's worth it!!!

I picked this offer up on Amazon Local as I live in London and it looked like a unusual thing to try. I took this with my children aged 11 and 9 (girl and boy) as they love mini's and Harry Potter.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
