My husband and I visited London with our teenage son. It was his first trip to the capital city.
We only had one day to see the sights and as our son is a big fan of Doctor Who we choose the 3 hour taxi tour as the best way to see as many sights as we could in the short time we had available.
Our tour guide and driver, Steve, arrived at our hotel a few minutes ahead of schedule and was very friendly, putting us all at our ease.
He spent time chatting with us to find out our particular interests so that he could tailor the tour to include all the sights we would enjoy.
The tour was wonderful! My son got to visit sights where Doctor Who episodes have been filmed, including all the big tourist attractions in London such as Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, Parliament, Big Ben, Piccadilly Circus, the Shard and the Tower of London. Steve was able to chat with our son about Doctor Who characters and interesting facts about the series.
In addition Steve also took us to sights that my husband and I were delighted to see. We went to Abbey Road and got a photo on the Beatles iconic zebra crossing. We stopped at the bookshop from the film ‘Nottinghill’, visited the Globe Theatre and also stopped off at a vintage car showroom for a look at James Bond 007 type Aston Martins.
Throughout the tour Steve kept us entertained and informed with anecdotes and stories about the City..... where David Beckham and Robbie William live, and how ‘Humpty Dumpty’ was actually a little round cannon!
Steve knows the city like the back of his hand and was able to stop at all the best places to get excellent photos.
During the tour Steve looked after our comfort by providing bottles of water, directing us to available toilet facilities and pointing out places to purchase snacks.
The tour exceeded our expectations and really made our visit to London a trip to remember!
I would highly recommend this tour if you want to visit as many sights as possible, if you want to avoid crowds, if you would find walking too tiring or if you want a tour specifically tailored to your particular interest.
