“Great Job”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

We took the Italian job tour for my son's 18th Birthday. It was great fun with lots of interesting and different facts. The driver was very friendly and knowledgable. The mini called Betty was vey nippy and manoeuvred through the traffic with ease. As well as the normal sights we were taken to to some unusual attractions. It's nice to see a different side of London and access areas which would be off bounds to larger vehicles. I would highly recommend.

“You won’t find a better way to tour London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Seriously, you’ll feel like a ‘Mini-celebrity’ (pun intended) as occasional random tourists take snapshots of you zipping down the streets of London in your cool ride. Not only that, but there is just something really awesome about being able to do a complete U-turn in the middle of a small two lane London road.

Edward, our driver, other than his amazing motor vehicle skills and knowledge of London, was also witty, intelligent, charming, and a real pro with our Nikon. Oh, and don’t be fooled, he’s got some massive guns under that flashy retro suit that he wears. He needs them because Daphne (our Mini) isn’t equipped with power steering.

With that being said, we take our “Flat Caps” off to both Edward and to Small Car Big City for a wonderfully entertaining and novel experience!

We went with Edward and his car Betty. A fantastic experience and our driver was able to give us some great facts about our capital city. I would recommend to anyone.

“A must when visiting London, especially for Mini lovers and owners!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

On our last day in London we decided we would go on a tour with smallcarBIGCITY to finish our stay with a BANG, and that is exactly what it was! We went on a 3 hour tour with Robert in a red 1994 Mini Cooper called Lizzy. My daughter and I had an absolute ball, we own a Mini ourselves and thought there would be no better way to do a last route of London than in a Mini. We zipped around where larger vehicles had trouble and discovered hidden gems we would have never even known about. Robert is full of knowledge and lots of interesting facts about London and for those who are Mini owners you can talk about all of the cars "specs". It was great to not only have a ride in a Mini, it was great to see where they originated from and how they would have handled the cobbled streets. I would highly recommend a tour with smallcarBIGCITY and I will definitely be a repeating customer. I will spread the word.

My wife and I took a 1.5 hour tour with company founder Robert and not only did it bring a smile to our faces, it brought a smile to everyone we encountered which is a real feat in London.

Robert knows his City and the start/finish at Borough Market was perfect. We'll have another spin next time in London!
