        An incredible day out in these marvelous minis
        A brilliant experience zipping around the seedier side streets of London in these beautiful, charismatic little pocket rockets. Everywhere we went you could see people smile as we went by. The stop-offs and stories along the way were well chosen and told; sometimes quirky, sometimes funny, sometimes sad. It felt like we were in a little bubble of history, taken along in Britain's most characterful of cars. As eighteenth birthday presents go, this was perfect. Our son is still talking about it, and we know it will be a treasured memory for life for us all.

        A very very happy very very important client of ours thanks to smallcarBIGCITY!
        We booked a smallcarBIGCITY tour for a very important client of ours who had flown in from the US with her husband and had 'never experienced London properly' in over 30 visits. It's fair to say that they were both absolutely blown away. Not just by the unbelievable sights and rich history that London has to offer, but by the professionalism, ease and sheer character that the team at smallcar have in abundance. The feedback to us was that Ian, their personal chauffeur guide for the day, was knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and took their London experience to the next level. The car itself was comfortable, presentable and added the extra hint of Brtishness that they were after. We will, without doubt, be using the smallcar team to help with any client visits and/or staff incentives. An absolute 10/10 experience.

        Self Drive Tour - first date
        I was gifted a book at Christmas detailing some of the worlds best road-trips (the exact name of the book escapes my mind). There was a write up on Small Car BIG CITY and as I was living in London I always had it in my mind as a fun activity to do, I just needed the right excuse. Fast forward 3 years. I'm looking for ideas for a first date. I remember the write up. I contacted Rob and he was great from start to finish. What a memorable date. We had Agnes for the whole day on a self drive tour around London where we traced a number of the Open Top Bus Routes. Agnes was a great wing woman and helped me secure the second date. Fast forward another 3 years. I reach out to Rob again, this time to see if he'd lend us Agnes for a proposal. Rob was great, always responding swiftly. On the day I met Thomas for the handover, he played an absolute blinder, I'd made a slight glitch arriving at the incorrect meeting spot, but he was swift to help and he was nothing but smiles and positive attitude the whole time. I'm delighted to say she said Yes. We will no doubt be in touch with Rob again to arrange a car for the Wedding Day. Thanks again to Rob, Thomas and Agnes.

        Absolutely Fantastic Experience!
        Tom was an absolute gem! My 9 year old and I had the most fun on our Harry Potter tour. Tom was top notch - he treated us like queens, made the HP experience so special, all while shared his vast knowledge of all things London with us. We will definitely be booking again on our next trip. I highly recommend this experience.

        Happy 1st Day in London
        Tom our driver, was delightful, funny and so knowledeable. He absolutely made the trip. The views were great and we did on our first day in London so we could get the lay of the city and then build our daily excursions from there. Highly recommend adding this to your agenda, you will not be disappointed.

        Personal and Special way to see London
        Tony was amazing! We have seen a few of the big “sights” so he personalized our tour and we stopped at a few different interesting sights, all while Tony gave us background, history and fun stories to add to the sight! The car is a huge hit in the streets! It’s so fun, nostalgic and British. Be sure to book this tour it’s a great way to feel out London for all

        A must to do when in London
        Chris and Matt were excellent drivers. Full of information about London and took us on a thoroughly enjoyable driving trip around London. A lot of places we never would have visited and are thankful for the experience and photo opportunities. What a great way to see London!

        This is the best of London!
        We had a wonderful morning with Chris and Rhiannon! We had 2 Mini Coopers and they took us to the gems of London, plus the hidden gems! Our favorite was the graffiti tunnel. Wow! They had so much history to share and truly made us feel like locals. We have 3 kids, and they did a beautiful job of engaging our kiddos and making sure everyone was having fun. This was one of our top trip experiences! Highly recommend.

      We had a wonderful time being driven around London in a classic Mini Cooper, the envy of everyone we passed. We really can't recommend this trip highly enough. From the knowledgeable, funny Tom with his colourful, interesting stories, the secret spots in our capital city to the massive smiles that the very sight of the car draws: old, young, rich or poor, everyone loves a proper Mini. Thank you Tom and the Darling Dorothy, she is a real head turner and you are not so bad yourself. :-D

      What a fantastic experience touring around the streets of London with our driver and tour guide par excellence, Thom! He took us in Agnes, the classic Mini to see many interesting sights about town. Thom is very knowledgeable, charming and funny. We laughed for 2 hours straight -absolutely loved it! Highly recommend booking a tour, whether you are are new to London, or think you already know it, this tour will offer surprises and great views from the windows and rooftop, and vintage coolness to boot. Great gift to self or others, really good fun, very enlightening. So happy we saw the city in this way! Thank you Thom and Small Car Big City : )

      Two days before my trip to London I decided to take a tour of London. I wanted to see what Londoners see, views from the spots only known to Londoners and those that visit often.

      Research landed me on the unexpected - Small Car BIG CITY. I booked the London by Night Tour! The tour was amazing...the rain did not dampen the experience. Learned so much and experienced the graffiti of Leake Street Tunnel.

      The rain doesn’t stop Londoners and it didn’t stop me from enjoying my tour.

      I enjoyed the ability to customize my tour and having one-to-one conversation with my guide was awesome. Jamie was a wealth of information. I learned how TopShop, the store, was named. If you don’t know, the next time you’re in London, or if you’re planning a trip to London now, schedule your Small Car BIG CITY tour with Jamie. Ask him. He has a lot more history to share.

      My next visit to London will include a Small Car BIG CITY tour!

      I booked the Panoramic Tour of London in a Rover P5 for my husband's birthday.
      Tom, our guide, was absolutely superb.. His breadth of knowledge, sense of humour and wealth of interesting anecdotes and facts just made the tour a truly one-off experience. (who knew that there are now more parakeets than pigeons in London, and that only the reigning monarch can drive through the central arch of Admiralty Arch?!)
      My husband actually got to drive the car as well!
      Would 100% recommend this experience.
      Thank you Tom 😊

      AMAZING – Don’t hesitate – Just book it – This was honestly one of the best days out EVER!

      We hired 2 minis to travel in convoy as a 21st Birthday treat, with 6 passengers all with aching faces from smiling at the end of the day! We swapped around several times between cars as Tom and Jamie were so knowledgeable and entertaining that no-one wanted to miss out. They also made a proper fuss of the Birthday Girl which made it even more special, thank you. The real stars of the day however were the cars, Robin & Daisy, beautifully maintained and so much fun to ride in. Everyone treats you like royalty in a mini!

      What a wonderful experience, one none of us will ever forget! Thank you smallcarBIGCITY.

      The Beetles Tour was so fun, we got to see Abbey road and Robert, our guide, was very nice! We played Beetles music the whole time from the car speakers. The owners are very passionate about their business and are very personal throughout the tour. Highly recommend if you what to see London through the eyes of a local.

      Tom was an amazing tour guide and it was an excellent way to start our 14th wedding anniversary! The Mini Cooper is such a classic car and it was a joy spending the morning touring one of our favorite cities! We will absolutely book again on the next trip. Thanks again, Tom!

      I booked the Landmarks of London tour as a surprise for my hubby who absolutely loves anything to do with cars. Jamie was right on time and picked us up our hotel. He was so personable and engaging throughout the tour. We had a wonderful time seeing London and learned a lot from Jamie.
      I can't recommend this enough! My whole experience with Small Car BIG CITY was fantastic from start to finish. I had emailed some questions prior to booking and they were answered kindly and quickly. Jamie even gave us some great restaurant recommendations for the rest of our stay in London.
      If we ever find ourselves in London again, we will definitely spend a couple more hours grinning wide in a mini with Small Car BIG CITY!

      This was SO much fun! Tony was our driver and was incredible. Very knowledgeable, especially since we threw him a bit of a curve ball by informing him we'd actually lived in London for a year. He managed to find some places we'd never heard of, and some history we didn't know! Fantastic time- would recommend this to anyone.

      Went out with the fabulous Tom for the afternoon. That man sure can talk - he knows so much about the City of London! Very entertaining and informative. A great present to receive. Opportunities for photos stops too. If you book a tour, I’d recommend you ask for Tom.
