Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered

Depart from your central London hotel or prearranged meeting point in a classic black cab. Then sit back in the comfortable, padded seats and take in the sights as your private driver-guide whisks you around the city.

Pass by Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trafalgar Square, and other world-famous sights and attractions. You’ll stop outside each landmark to take photos and learn about it from your private guide.

Then, set off in search of the city’s little curiosities that most visitors don’t get to see. See London’s smallest houses and square, discover Henry VIII’s cowshed and tennis court, and visit shops that are more than 300 years old and still trading. You’ll also pass a medieval banquet hall, Sir Winston Churchill’s cigar chair, Roman baths, and a house with fake windows.

Upgrade to include an additional hour of sightseeing, should you wish.

Your tour concludes in central London after three or four hours, depending on the tour option selected.

Greg was extremely knowledgeable about London, and the tour was very enlightening. We have mobility problems, and Greg kindly adapted the tour to meet our needs. This tour is a definite must for anyone new to London, or even those not so new (like us) who learned a lot.

I usually don't write reviews, but this tour was fabulous! It was everything that we wanted and more. Being our first time in London, we wanted a "broad stroke" of attractions to see and then visit certain particular attractions later. Our driver, Greg, was timely, professional, knowledgeable, and funny. We couldn't have asked for a better time. Highly recommend if you're looking for a fun way to see a lot of sights. Cheers!

This was an awesome tour we only had one full day in London and we saw more than we thought we could ever see in a day in the comfort of our private black cab. Our guide Steve was so knowledgeable and friendly and really made this tour fun for me and my to adult daughters. We were able to stop whenever we wanted , he did some shopping with us too! I would highly recommend this tour if you want to go off the beaten path and see some really neat hidden Treasures!

A wonderful tour with a real British Cab Driver, We saw so many things that we did not know existed. What a pleasure to be able to be able to park in the taxi ranks, so we never had to search for parking and were always close bye the sites visited.

This was a great experience. Tailored to our needs and wants. Thank you Steve for the laughs and entertainment. We had a blast and our kids loved the Harry Potter photo shoot! We would have never known that street existed without you. I highly recommend the tour. My only regret is that we didn’t have more time. Nicole.
