        A visit to London must include Steve the Cabbie! The tour exceeded our expectations in every way. Steve is knowledgeable, entertaining and very accommodating to individual requests. We will be remembering our journey for years to come. Thanks so much! Michael & Melinda

        Fantastic tour of London. Now we need to go back and explore more, Steve was amazing, kind, knowledgeable and accommodating. We had a little mishap with our 11-year old, Steve took a great care of her and made sure she was comfortable. Hope to see you soon, Steve. Best times!

        Memories are made with Steve
        This was the second time we have had a tour with Steve….7 years apart. His first tour was so memorable with one grandson we couldn’t let the second one miss out. Steve is truly wonderful. A really helpful, knowledgeable friendly person. Great with children. Both times we have seen sides of London we could never have found ourselves. The four hours we spent with him flew by and Steve is very very generous with his time. He weaves through traffic so well I don’t know how he does it and then by some sort of magic you appear at a landmark. For us Steve offers all that is good about London. I could listen to him for hours. These tours are such value for money. For 5 of us the cost would have been much more going independently. Our first trip stored up so many family memories and we now have more. Occasionally doing the same thing twice can lose impact but we enjoyed our second as much if not more. Thank you Steve

        The best way to see the sights of London is with Steve at London Cabbie tours
        I cannot rate Steve from london cabbie tours highly enough. Steve goes above and beyond what you would expect from a tour guide. His knowledge of the history of london is exceptional and his passion for his job just shines through. We were greeted with a warm welcome from the beginning and we visited every attraction on our list and more! I definitely recommend booking Steve if you’re planning a trip to london.

        Five Star repeat performance
        This was my 2nd go around with Steve and London Cabbie Tours. Steve met us at Heathrow Arrival hall after our overnight flight from the US. From handling our every need to pinpoint information about the area, Steve was spot on! This was my wife's first visit to the UK and she was enamored with the history and diversity. We arrived at 11:00 am and we had a function that began at 4:00pm, Steve gave us a tour and dropped our luggage at Westminster then dropped us at our function at Picadilly Circus. We are returning in 2025 and we will use Steve again for a special tour to Kent. Reach out to him if you have special request. He is the best.

        Great London Cabbie Tour! Highly Recommend!
        We arrived in London as a brief stop before we headed back home. Two days is a very short time to spend there and at the end of our first day I realized we needed help to see more of London. I called Steve and luckily he was available for a 4 hour tour the next day. Steve picked us up at our hotel and drove us around to see all the major sights (Kensington Palace, Royal Albert Hall, Buckingham Palace, Parliament, Westminster Abbey, The London Eye, The London Tower, The Tower Bridge, Big Ben and even lesser known sights and areas and the list goes on and on) Steve is a very friendly, super nice guy and extremely knowledgeable about the city and it's history. He was telling us all about the different sights as we approached them. It helped us to understand more about London. He gave us the opportunity to stop and get out and take pictures if we wanted. We stopped at The Borough Market and he suggested we get out to see the market and and get a bite to snack on for the rest of our tour. I don't think we would have been able to see nearly half of what we saw without his tour and expertise. I highly recommend Steve to take you around London!

        Excellent Tour with A+ Guide
        Steve was an EXCELLENT tour guide who genuinely seemed very excited about showing us his London. We saw all the major spots and he was very knowledgeable about the history. He hopped out at all the spots and took us to the best locations to get some lovely photos. His black cab gives you all the privileges to park very close to all the sites and he had a lot of tips for how to get the most out of London. Comfortable and spacious seating for 4 in the back of his cab, with kid friendly belting options if you have little ones. We would highly recommend Steve’s tour. It was worth every penny/pence.

        Mum was overjoyed
        Steve is awesome, courteous, funny and very knowledgeable. What i liked was he stopped often, got out and open the side cab door to talk to us more personally, nice touch. All our pre tour communication was excellent, and the fact he had obviously done a little research on what we had specifically asked to see ( the Brixton Area where my mum was evacuated from during the war, and she had not been back for 85 years!) He found my mums street where she was born but sadly not her house as it had been replaced with many around it by new accommodation. I can highly recommend Steve, he is not cheap but trust me worth every penny.

        Delightful tour
        As all of us had visited London, Steve took us to parts of London we had never seen, including gardens, parks, beautiful neighborhoods, offbeat attractions such as homes that John Lennon and Freddy Mercury lived in, and canals. All that along with requested stops at Harrod's and delicious fish 'n chips. Steve is fun, interesting, very knowledgeable, and completely accommodating. He picked us up and dropped us at our hotel. Highly recommend!

        Out and about in London
        Steve hosted us on a tour of London and it was a fantastic day. First he met us at our hotel. It was a cold day so it was especially nice having a warm car to get into. Being in a taxi enabled us to park in unique places and get through traffic a bit easier. We frequently stopped for photos or a brief talk about the various sites. His encyclopedic knowledge of the streets was useful navigating from place to place. He was very flexible and open to requests but we did not have any. We made it to all of the high points we read about. Chelsea stadium, Trafalgar square, Clarence House, the changing of the guard, Kensington palace, Regent park, Abbey road, London tower, London bridge, the house of parliament, Westminster Abbey… just to name a few. This was a good starting point for further exploration on our trip. We took a break for lunch and he patiently waited while we got food. He was very personable and great with our 12 and 14 year old boys. I highly recommend Steve’s tour.

        Wonderful private guide for seeing London.
        Spend the day with Steve and had a wonderful time seeing the sites and learning the history of London. He is very knowledgeable from having spent 20 years as a cabbie and the last 10 as a private guide. He truly knows the town inside and out. We were able customize our tour and Steve was more than happy to accommodate. Lastly Steve just has a wonderful personality and made the day that much more enjoyable.

      Outstanding!!
      Steve is one of those rare gems and is an all round top bloke.
      Where do I start? Communication is excellent. Steve takes the time to find out what kind of tour you want, the duration and any other specific requirements.

      I wanted my Mum's first trip to London to celebrate her 70th birthday to be extra special and most importantly , as covid safe as possible.
      We were picked up from our hotel, taken on a brilliant tour and then dropped off at Kew Gardens.

      At the end of the tour Mum and I had both learned lots of interesting new things about London , including that peculiar hobby called mud larking !

      Steve is a very knowledgeable tour guide and clearly enjoys his job and meeting new people. I would highly recommend his tours, it has been one of the highlights of our trip.

      Thank you very much for your lovely review Kirsty. It was my pleasure to be able to take you and your mum on a London Cabbie Tour, my first tour after 17 months off the road. It was wonderful to be back doing what I love! I’m pleased that I was able to make your mum’s 70th birthday a special one. It was lovely to meet you both and I look forward to taking you on another London Cabbie Tour in the future.

      I have been to London numerous times but my latest trip was with my 24 year old granddaughter and this was her first. Since we were only going to be in the city 3 days I wanted her to see the highlights in a condensed period of time. I found Steve and the cow cab online and immediately reached out to him via email. He promptly replied and I was able to set the tour up.

      He showed up on time and for the next 4 hours he showed us the city. He took us to the normal places you would see but also places that were new and interesting to even a seasoned traveler like me (like the rooftop of the home where the original Mary Poppins' chimney sweeps dancing was filmed). He is very knowledgeable, if he doesn't know an answer he researches it, is flexible and nice, and he knows London very well. This is a perfect way to see the city.

      I highly recommend Steve and his cow cab.

      We weren't sure what to expect when visiting London during COVID but decided to book with Steve upon a friend's recommendation. Not only was the tour great (more below) but we felt safe whilst on the tour.

      As we wanted to see the most we could in one day, we asked Steve to fashion a "neighborhoods" tour where we got a sense of the different areas of London, while driving past or around famous sites. Steve gave us exactly what we asked for plus more - I had lived in London previously and yet I learned so much on the tour.

      Steve was pleasant and knowledgeable and took into account our wishes while creating the tour and spending the day with us.

      I highly recommend Steve and his service.

      Thank you for your kind words. When I started London Cabbie Tours many years ago, my aim was to offer something that no one else could offer - a bespoke tour. Clients are able to give me an idea of the places/ideas they would like included and I can design a tour to their specifications. Alternatively, clients can leave it to me and I will put a tour together for them.

      Steve is so awesome! He met us at Paddington and took us on a 4 hour tour to help us beat our jet lag and stay awake. He knows all kinds of amazing spots and historical information—making the trip so fun and informative. He also helped us find great spots for pictures. This is the second time we have done this tour with Steve and 10/10 we will do it again! Our 16 year old niece also really enjoyed it! Again, Steve is amazing!

      We had family visiting from Australia (at last!) including young grandchildren. Steve gave us all a fantastic tour with highlights including the fascinating history around Borough Market, the Globe Theatre, Westminster and the Thames bridges. We visited the Royal Mews and had a great view of the Changing of the Guard from the Mall and Buckingham Palace. Steve made sure we had plenty of photo opportunities throughout the tour. We ended our tour at the Oval cricket ground in Kennington to watch some cricket and for our family to meet old work colleagues and friends.
      Having a London Cabbie Tour gives you great access to areas that you can’t get any other way and with Steve’s knowledge it’s a really personal trip and experience.
      Brilliant day, thank you Steve!

      This is the second time we used Steve to see the sights in London. We requested Steve to provide a wide range of WW2 sites and a few other Misc sites. He planned out a tour that exceeded our expectations. It included WW1, WW2 history and some surprises based on our likes in music and comedy. He was very knowledgeable on the history surrounding the sites we visited. He was extremely flexible to add last minutes add ons. We couldn’t have asked for more. This time we again had him pick us at Heathrow and drop us off at our hotel. This is the best way to see London while you await checking time at your hotel.

      This review is long overdue. Steve took our group of five on two London tours and they were great! He also picked us up at the airport, dropped us at our hotel, transferred us the the ship for our cruise and then picked us up. We could not have asked for better service. I also left my cane in his cab and he mailed it to me in the US. If we ever return to London Steve will be on our call list!

      This is a must for your first day in London. It being our first time to London, Steve not only gave us a great tour, but also a sampling on where we should come back to later when we had more time. This was a very pleasant experience. We were delayed getting to our hotel (meeting place) and Steve patiently waited for us. He genuinely seems to enjoy showing people around. Highly recommended!
