Jake is the best!

Our guide was Jake and he was fantastic-knowledgeable, personable very efficient with our time. We saw so many things and he was light-hearted and filled the time with so many interesting tidbits and anecdotes. We definitely would recommend this tour and especially Jake!
Fabulous tour!

Our driver Wes was so knowledgeable and really worked to make our tour informative, entertaining and throughly enjoyable. We highly recommend the private black cab tour! Fantastic experience!
Great Tour!
Sean_S, Sept 2023
We loved this tour!!! We only had a few days in London so we felt this would be the best bet for seeing as much as we could. Our tour guide, David, was perfect! He took us to the major sites, but also included hidden gems that we absolutely loved. He was also kind, funny and knowledgeable about the history of these places. I highly recommend this to anyone who visits London.
Not Advisable
Jitendra_T, Sept 2023
It was a terrible experience, the cab driver was more interested throughout for his next trip at 7:00pm and also we were not taken pass many locations across London.
Response from Host, Sept 2023
We would like to extend our sincerest apologies for the experience you had during your recent cab tour of London that did not meet your expectations. Thank you for providing us with this feedback, we take any and all feedback very seriously and have investigated this matter. Firstly, your booking was for 4 passengers, but for the tour you had 6 people, including elderly family members who stayed in the cab and did not want to explore or walk any distances and young children, if we are aware of all passengers attending ahead of time we are able to prepare and adapt the experience for all guests. Our guide denied your request to have a Mc Donald's meal in the cab during your tour, to maintain a clean and pleasant environment. Food odors and potential mess can negatively affect the overall experience and it would have taken a long time to remove the odor from the cab, he did offer to wait for you to eat at a restaurant but this offer was rejected. Moreover, our tour guide did not have any other engagements scheduled at 7:00 pm. He dropped off your group at your accommodation at 7:15 pm. You were indeed the last tour of the day for him. Towards the end of the tour, when you reached the Tower Bridge, it appeared that the focus shifted to using the hotel facilities and purchasing food from a nearby supermarket rather than the historical and cultural aspects of the sites, and we apologize for any disappointment this may have caused. Thank you again for bringing your concerns to our attention.
Gary was Brillant

Tour of London with Family
Sophia_S, Sept 2023
Ryan provided us with an amazing tour of London! He was professional, prompt, efficient and knowledgeable. Thank you for a great day with lots of special memories.
Best tour of our vacation
Judith_S, Sept 2023
This is week 5 of a 5.5 week European vacation. We’ve been on tours everywhere, but this one was our favorite. Barry was a truly wonderful guide. There is no possible way we could have seen more or learned more London history in the 4 hours we spent with him. And he took 15 photos of us at all the best London attractions for no extra charge. He made sure to arrive on time for us to see the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace. Barry definitely made us want to come back to London to spend more time. Well worth the money
Bucket list trip to Europe
sheryl_c, Sept 2023

Best tour, book it! Worth every penny!

jennifer_P, Sept 2023
Ollie was so amazing during this tour! We saw a TON of London in just 4 hours and once he knew more about us and our interests, he was able to tailor the experience to us and what we wanted to know more about! He was so knowledgeable and kind!
Five stars for Tracy!
joyce_d, Sept 2023
Tracy was an excellent guide. She adapted the tour to suit our interests . In addition to seeing and hearing the history of the traditional sights, we loved seeing the shop where the Royals buy their hats.
Great overview of London!
Lisa_F, Sept 2023
Tracey was awesome! Very knowledgeable and accommodating! She took pictures of us on the tour and sent them to us at the end! Definitely worth the time and $$!
Perfect intro to London
hilary_c, Sept 2023
Terry was great! We learned so much - he’s a real history buff! Getting 4-5hour orientation to the city was the perfect way to start out our 4days in London. Thank you!!
