Steve provides a great tour! Interesting and scenic stops along the way and he takes time to know what events are happening (such as changing of the guard) and arranges his driving to make seeing those happen. Very cheerful and fun tour. Highly recommend!

I have been to London numerous times but my latest trip was with my 24 year old granddaughter and this was her first. Since we were only going to be in the city 3 days I wanted her to see the highlights in a condensed period of time. I found Steve and the cow cab online and immediately reached out to him via email. He promptly replied and I was able to set the tour up. He showed up on time and for the next 4 hours he showed us the city. He took us to the normal places you would see but also places that were new and interesting to even a seasoned traveler like me (like the rooftop of the home where the original Mary Poppins' chimney sweeps dancing was filmed). He is very knowledgeable, if he doesn't know an answer he researches it, is flexible and nice, and he knows London very well. This is a perfect way to see the city. I highly recommend Steve and his cow cab.

From CA visiting London for the first time, I needed someone to give us a good overview of the city right after landing. Steve was prompt at airport. He gave us great information in the places he took us to. He was polite to us and people he encounters in the street, he’s just a good guy. Very prompt with emails. Very kind to my 5 year old child, always attentive to him. Helped with luggage handling. Steve is a genuine guy who is not only here to make money. For us, to have a person passionate about his city and what he does for a living really showed how much he cared. I think he really put our trip to a great start. Great guy, great concept, I will always refer Steve to anyone I know to get his great service. Thank you Steve!!! From the Asuncion’s (Elk Grove, CA) Tip: Book him early for pick up and tour as soon as you land. And book him to return you to airport maybe even take a different route and sight see even more. Totally worth your hard earned money.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. For those of you that don’t know, when you send an enquiry to London Cabbie Tours your email comes direct to me as I am the owner & sole tour guide who will respond to you ASAP! I am pleased that I was able to keep the attention of your 5 year old son. I think this is due to the fact that I have 5 grandchildren with another 2 on the way! My grandchildren certainly keep me on my toes! I find that my tours span the generations from babes in arms to senior citizens and I am able to adapt to them all.

This tour was the best part of our trip to London. Steve is incredibly well informed about every place he took us on this tour. The tour was developed by Steve based on our interest when scheduling the tour, and it was just amazing! It is very clear that Steve loves what he does, and that he excels at it. We had high tea scheduled to start right after the tour, but my husband and I wished we could have just kept the tour going. This tour was so much more than we could have hoped for. If you are considering it, it is more than worth the cost.

Thank you for your kind review! My taxi carries 5 passengers, and as the cost of a personal bespoke tour is for up to 5 passengers and not per person, it comes out cheaper than a tour on the London Bus Company! Just drop me an email and I will devise a tour to suit your requirements.

I am at a loss for words. Steve was very informative clean cab took you places that would would never find on another tour. Give him your bucket list and he will fulfill every wish on that list. He is very passionate about its heritage and certainly well versed In his homeland. This was very easy relaxed and frankly I'm at a loss for words I have never been this comfortable on any tour. My only complaint is is that hes going to become too booked and his waiting list will be long . I wish I could give him a 100 stars instead of 5. Trip Advisor way to go!
