We did the private black cab/taxi tour to Downton Abby sites. It was wonderful, but I must admit that it was OVER THE TOP due to our driver, named Richard Liddle. Great host and he went the extra mile to show us everything in detail. Another highlight was stopping for lunch at a local pub...WONDEFUL!! Great Trip-Excellent Driver.

We enjoyed our day with Richard on Capital Taxi Tours - The Taxi is super comfortable and convenient, Richard was knowledgeable, witty and comfortable to be around. We were a family of 3 and had all been to London once before, so we concentrated on "All Things Sherlock" as well as an overview of the highlights of London. It was... More

This was, by far, the best tour we took on our recent 3-week stay in Europe. Our driver, David, was knowledgeable and helpful, and we all had a great time. This particular tour was of most interest to both my Mom and my 13-year-old niece, and they both loved it especially, we even got to tag the wall at Abbey... More

We booked the private "Dr Who" tour of London. The driver, Gerry was absolutely the best! My wife and I and two daughters thoroughly enjoyed it. I am not a Dr Who fan and Gerry entertained each of us catering to our respective interests- Dr Who, History, Sherlock Holmes, etc. Thoughtful, polite and incredibly knowledgeable on all aspects of English...

We are from the states and visiting London for the first time. Our tour guide, Richard, was beyond amazing. He was early and had a pristine Mercedes taxi with complimentary... More

My family and I did the tour with Richard and Capital taxi tours. It was just fantastic. I would recommend this tour and the company to anyone who is interested in Sherlock or Dr Who.

My husband and I traveled to London for the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who. One of the absolute highlights of the trip was the Doctor Who Tour. Richard Liddle, who may very well be the best tour guide in the city, met us at the front door of our hotel, precisely on time, with his comfortable and spacious black taxi.... More
