I recently took my 16 year old daughter to London. I know the city pretty well, but I wanted for my daughter to have a good overview of the historic sites. After looking at lots of options, I narrowed down our choices to a private Blue-Badge guide and a smallcarBigCity Mini tour. Though both are expensive, I thought the Mini tour would be more fun, and I was not disappointed. Robert, the owner of the company, was our charming guide for 3 hours. He made a point of showing us the sights that would appeal to a teen, as well as the major landmarks. We say Abbey Road of the Iconic album cover as well as an amazing display of graffiti (which my daughter likes to photograph) in a historic tunnel. Robert struck just the right mood of being knowledgeable and hip. Even though the Mini doesn’t provide the views that a tour bus would, it makes up for that in the fun factor.

We were very surprided to see an original Mini in such good condition. Than Jay, our guide for an hour, greeted us friendly and off we went. We had a blast as he was very enthousiastic about his city, told us lots of things about the history and present and was funny at the same time. I would recommend this to everybody who wants to see the highlights of London, and doesn't want to go on an "un-personal" bustour. IT WAS GREAT !!!

What a brilliant and unique way of seeing London. Took my 14 year old son who loves original mini's and we both thoroughly loved it. The driver was very informative, the ride was fun and seeing London from such a classic car was great. I would definately recommend this. My son - being the teenager that he is - even asked a question. Felt totally relaxed and trusted the driver completely even when he was weaving in and out the traffic round all the major roundabouts and bridges. Only trouble is my son wants a classic mini cooper now!!

Beautiful car, beautiful day and the driver wasnt bad either! With the Beatles playing we were able to drive around with roof wide open which we assumed was the emergency exit as it wasn't explained to us where it was. Nothing was any problem for Sam our driver. Knew London like the back of her hand and explained things very well. Car arrived 15 mins early, and that was when the tour started giving us an extra time. Definately a must do if you are in London
