Our driver/tour guide William, (Bill) Berry , was so knowledgeable of locations, the history and the best way to get there. We spent 2 days with Bill, and we got to see more than we could have seen in a week on our own. We were directed around crowds and long lines, Bill knew exactly where to be and when to be there. On our second day we traveled to Windsor, and thanks to Bill we were able to pass a line of hundreds of people, he knew when and where to take us to get a front row view of the Queen we were able to get a close up, (10 feet) photo. We Highly recommend Black Cab Heritage Tours.

Both tours were excellent. Ours was geared to a person with disabilities.
Our British Museum tour was with Brian he was helpful extremely knowledgeable bout the museum and the areas we wanted to especially hear and see. He was very genuine and knew far more than he had time to share. Our trip lasted a bit longer than the booking but he was never rushed nor did he hurry to get us out.
Our second tour was the driving tour. In just over three hours we chose to focus in the Royal area and Chris’s depth of knowledge about the history and background of London was remarkable. We felt our money was ver we’ll spent.

We booked an airport pickup service from Heathrow to Manningtree and we were so pleased with our driver John Parsons. He was very accommodating, kind and friendly. He arrived before we landed and we greatly appreciated how punctual he was. We were greeted with smiles and he ensured we were always comfortable . We were keen to know more about England on our way to Manningtree and he was so insightful. Could not have asked for a better welcome to the UK!

We had an absolutely wonderful time with Paul and Black Cab Heritage Tours. Our group of 6 women ranged from 30 to 70, and Paul was very accommodating of our physical needs, varying interests and non-stop chattering. He was incredibly knowledgeable while remaining entertaining and even the members of our group who frequent London left feeling they had learned a lot. The cab itself was very clean, warm, and more than enough space for 6 people. We all ranked the 4-hour tour a highlight of the trip and would not hesitate to recommend to any friends or family traveling to London in the future!

John was amazing! So knowledgeable and accommodating. He customized our day, told entertaining and fun stories, and kept us laughing and happy all day - tall order for four women (two whom are teenagers!). We highly recommend him and touring with Black Cab Heritage Tours!

Thanks to Steve Bates, I had a great visit in London within limited time (under corona virus restrictions). He made everything easier for me , I came to London first time and although my flight was delayed , he offered me to pick up from Heathrow terminal so that we started trip on time :) he was amazing about historical knowledge and very friendly . I didn’t get bored any second of visit. Also, he made some changes on plan due to my preferences and timing was perfect. Definetely, I highly recommend everyone to visit London with BCHT and if Steve will be available that means you are so lucky!!!😊

Our Tour Guide, Russell, was on time, knowledgeable about all things London, and flexible enough to accommodate us when something popped into our heads that we wished to see. A cab driver for many years, Russell possessed encyclopedic knowledge of this city and the best ways to negotiate the complexities of its traffic. We saw much more than we would have on our own. For example, we did not know that the Abbey Road Studio and John Lennon's home would even be a possibility. Thanks to Russell, our entire trip to London has been enhanced!

Our Black Cab Tour was a birthday present for a keen photographer, so the request was for Secret London with Photography in mind. We were informed the cab would be white with a panoramic roof (bonus), so we waited outside St Pancras Renaissance scanning Euston Road for a white cab that didn't arrive. It transpired that a cab waiting on the ramp was the replacement for the white cab that had technical issues. A text or email informing of the change would have been very basic Administration. Unfortunately Black Cab compounded the matter when it became clear that the driver had not been informed of the brief. He apologised graciously and said that, had he been informed he could have researched a route more appropriate to us.

The driver, on the other hand, gets 11 out of 10 all day long. Polite, friendly, genial and unfailingly helpful. His efforts very much pulled the Black Cab irons out of the fire. Despite being put in a position of having to plot the tour "on the fly" we had a most enjoyable time. Though I cannot help thinking that, had he been properly informed, it may have been even better.
With Cabbies, an encyclopaedic knowledge of London is a given, however we were all most impressed with the in depth historic knowledge that came with it. Most impressive.
I feel that Black Cab should review their Management / Administration procedures to address situations such as ours. Changes needed are very simple and basic but could pay huge dividends.
We ended our tour at Camino's, Varnisher's Yard, Kings Cross. WELL worth a visit.

We are most grateful for your comprehensive feedback Ken, and your praise for your cabbie has been well received. Those points regarding our admin team have been taken onboard, especially as we take guest so seriously, and so these comments are also gratefully received.
