We booked this tour based on a recommendation of a friend and consider this a recommendation from a friend of a friend. You will not be disappointed. We decided a full tour (in 4 hours) would be a good way to start our week long visit to London with our kids (10 and 13). After completing the tour, we could (and did) go back to areas we wanted to see a bit more in depth. Adrian provided a comprehensive tour with lots of extra insight. The best part was his incredible timing (he knew exactly when and where to go (i.e.: changing of the guard....timed perfectly and we had the best view!). He is experienced, intuitive, friendly, charming, professional and incredibly knowledgeable. Wish we could give his tour more stars. Adrian, THANK YOU!!!!

LONDON TAXI TOURS!!! a must do, Adrian was an amazing guide. He picked us up from our flat in Camden and showed us London in 4 hours, (we were only in London a couple days and wanted to see as much as possible) there was no way we could have seen this beautiful and historic city the way we did with out him. If you're in London for a day or a week book LONDON TAXI TOURS.
Amazing day at a great price. Thank you again and again Adrian

First time visitors to London, we were excited for our private London Taxi tour with Adrian, from pick up at our Hotel to dropping us off at the famous Harrods Store, as per our request. Adrian showed us all the sites and gave us the historical facts on every part of the tour along the way, we loved the little extra information that he gave, that really is in no guide book, like where some scenes for the Harry Potter movies and Skyfall were filmed in London, the best place to see the changing of the guard with the Band and without the crowds.

We stopped for photographs at quite a few places, the horseguards at St James Palace, Parliament House, London Bridge, St Pauls Cathedral, Tower of London, plus we were able to take photos from the Taxi, there was no rush on the tour, Adrian has this London City tour very well planned out.

We highly recommend London Taxis tours with Adrian, Truly a highlight of our visit to London, Adrian was lovely and friendly, from first email contact to the Christmas card he emailed us yesterday, truly fabulous. Thank you Adrian.

My husband and I went to London for a day trip from Paris as a part of our 5th year wedding anniversary. We wanted to explored what London has to offer as much as we could in 11 hours (9am-8pm), so we decided to booked London Tours by Taxi with Adrian after doing research on TripAdvisor.
The short story is: we could not have been happier with the experience!

Our guide and driver, Adrian Rouse, was waiting for us at the taxi entrance of Eurostar train station at 9am as planned with the our name on the taxi's windshield and his big smile. He had even put balloons and a happy anniversary banner for us in the car along with champagne glasses for our champagne.
We booked Adrian for a half day tour package for 4 hour and from 9am-1pm and from there we saw, we learned about London more than we have leaned in our entire life... and I'm pretty sure that we even saw some of the attractions twice! We walked we talked we took a lot of pictures we leaned a lot about the history and cultures.

First, we stopped at the tower of London, then Shakespeare globe, Thames River, and the London Eye. Then we drove through all of the stunning new buildings that were full of great characters and architecture with a couple stops for pictures and stories.
Around 11am we stopped and took a walk to see the changing of the guards and Buckingham palace. After spent almost a full hour there we drove to Palace of Westminster (Big Ben), where we stopped at the garden side for pictures and history and then we made another stop at he Thames River side for more pictures.
Our last stop was at Westminster Abby before Adrian dropped us off for lunch at the Fish & Chip.

We are pleased to recommend London Tour by Taxi services to anyone that will be in London for a short period, or long vacation, and looking to book a great sightseeing tour. Adrian also provides so many other services beside the tour of London that we booked. The services given by Adrien at London Tour by Taxi was excellent and worth every pound. If we have an opportunity in the future to go back to London we will definitely book London Tour by Taxi again in a heartbeat! Thank you!

P.S. Adrian, sorry for the delay on our review as we have been super busy with work and family as the holiday season approaching. We wish you and your family have a wonderful Christmas and New year.
