What to expect
  • 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.

Amazing London
Oct 2021 • Solo
Andrew was full of fun knowledge and great historical stories. A personalized tour that takes you to places the buses cannot go. This is a tour I would do again!

Brilliant Day!
Jul 2021
We live in Wimbledon and decided to have a London Staycation. I chatted to Richard to see which tour would suit us and our teenage daughters best. Richard immediately gave me confidence that his was the company to book with and that we were going to have a wonderful time exploring London on a half day tour. Andrew, our guide on the day was tremendous - he is professional, great fun, hugely knowledgeable and very flexible. We learnt so much and really feel we know our city so much better with knowledge ranging from unique historical facts to really interesting movie, TV and music location trivia - it was just brilliant and we will definitely book again. Our girls now have the confidence to further explore our wonderful city and this has been the Covid-19 silver lining...

Great tour including popular and unique sites
Greg was a superb tour guide. We learned about places we would not likely find on our own. He even had unique stories about the popular tourist attractions. He really knows London! Our tour included stops at the Guildhall Art Gallery to see remnants of the Roman Amphitheatre and paintings of the old city, the Tower of London and Tower Hyll, and St. James's and Buckingham Palaces plus many novel spots along the way. Greg tailored the tour to our interests. We enjoyed this tour very much and highly recommend it.

Fantastic Tour Guide!
Dec 2019
Our tour guide, Steve, gave us a great and comprehensive half-day tour of London that included Buckingham Palace, St. James, the Tower of London, Borough Market, Soho, Covent Garden, Abbey Road Studios, St. John's Wood, Knightsbridge, and more. He was friendly, informative and conscientious of our specific requests & interests. I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in an overview of London upon arriving in the city.

Fantastic tour
Nov 2019 • Friends
Greg was simply fantastic. Beyond knowledgeable about the history of the city, the tour was truly an opportunity to become enmeshed in all the great city of London has to offer. Travelling by black cab was a brilliant part and enabled us to travel quite a bit. There was not a question Greg couldn't answer and he navigated tricky road closures with aplomb! If you love history and want to learn about the city and all it has to offer, you cannot go wrong with Greg!

First full day in London was made great by our amazing tour guide Andrew! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone going to london! He asked us where we wanted to go and took us there and made sure we saw everything and more! Such a smart man who knows so much about London’s history! I wish I could give him 20 stars!

Oh the secrets London cabbies know! Nooks and crannies filled with history hidden just out of sight, but yours for the asking on this amazing tour. You won't know what you're missing if you skip this opportunity, but part of you heart will regret it.

One of the highlights of our trip to London!
Mar 2019 • Family
This was one of the highlights of our trip to London! We couldn’t say enough good things about Andrew! He knew so much about any topic & could tailor the conversation towards your interest whether it is on government, history, monarchy, film, famous persons, etc. It was a cooler day & we were so grateful to be in a warm car & hop out when we wanted to see the sites up close & take pictures. It was the perfect big picture overview of London with many hidden special stops we never would have seen!

Great tour!
Took a 4 hour tour with Andrew. A wonderful ride. He accommodated all of the sites we wanted to see plus many more! We had asked to see Abby Road Snd he showed os that( even has us get out and took a photo walking across the street) plus many other Beatles sites. My daughter had wanted to see the oldest tea store and he took us there. We went inside with him and he showed us some of the historical pieces they have. My husband wanted to see his company headquarters and he drove us through the business district. Highly recommend this very personalized tour. Loved Andrew
