        Exceptional Service by an Extraordinary Tour Guide
        We had a remarkable Black Taxi Heritage Tour of London with the most knowledgeable driver, Matt. Matt's expertise was unparalleled! We were first greeted with a warm smile and genuine enthusiasm, then Matt shared the city's rich history and hidden gems. We weaved through the city with ease and grace, ensuring that we saw every noteworthy landmark and heard captivating stories behind each one. Matt’s passion for his work and the city was palpable, making the entire journey not just informative but also incredibly enjoyable. I highly recommend hiring Matt as your private tour guide. He is amazing! Be prepared for a great time.

        The Perfect London Private 4-Hour Tour in A Black Cab
        This was a private 4-hour black cab tour of London. Mark was our driver & tour guide. He was excellent: friendly, knowledgeable and open to last-minute stops we wanted to make. I and my travel companions cannot recommend him highly enough. His tour was the perfect intro to London.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Victor Pianosi ( Toronto)

        Excellent tour! 100% recommend
        Our tour with Mark in the Black Cab was hands down the best tour we have ever taken. We had 3 kids and a 72 year old and all had varied interests. We saw so many highlights of London, both traditional tourist sites and some off the beaten path sites that we got a great overview. Mark is such a great guy, so knowledgeable and was absolutely fantastic. 100% recommend.

        Unforgettable day in London with our Cabby, Jamie
        We were in London for a very short period of time, so this was the perfect tour for us. our Cabby, Jamie was extremely knowledgeable and put together a customized tour after having conversation with us. We saw all the major attractions that you would see if visiting London. Jamie went above. and beyond showing my sons a couple of Harry Potter sites. We were able to catch the Beatles Abbey Road and see some ancient ruins, from the earliest days of London. Certainly things we would not have otherwise ever known to see on our own. It would definitely have taken several days to see what we saw in eight hours. Jamie made for an unforgettable trip and took time to take pictures of the family at every stop.

        Best way to see the city is both a knowledgeable and friendly Cockney cabbie!
        We booked Jamie via Viator. The high ratings did not lie! Jamie was a great driver but even better was his pleasant and open personality, flexibility, and knowledge of London. He’s not only a true Cockney, he’s a person who loves his city and it comes through. We had a thoroughly enjoyable 5 hours with Jamie. I highly highly recommend!

      We had booked a half day tour in London for my fiancé's birthday during our long weekend there. It was his first time in London and I am SO glad we did this tour. Paul was our driver and we had booked on a Sunday morning starting at 8am. This ended up being such an amazing time to do this tour because the traffic was very light on Sunday morning and it allowed us to see SO much of the city. We saw the Mayfair pub, walked around the Tower of London and even managed to see the changing of the Guards. It was perfectly planned and timed out and Paul, was the most amazing tour guide we could have asked for!

      I would recommend anyone to do this tour it is an amazing crash course into London and British history! Paul was SO knowledgeable and was the perfect guide!

      We kicked of our London half day tour with the changing of the guards at St James palace
      The commencement of the Irish pipe band was so powerful it brought me to tears. As we followed the guards and the band around the corner to Buckingham palace, we joined a crowd of ‘00s of people and felt the power of the Royal followers from all over the world. Even if you’re not a Royal follower, I guarantee you will still be effected emotionally by this spectacle. It was thanks to Chris that we had such an amazing vantage for this amazing experience. Chris then took us on a walk/drive around the city showing us all the major highlights of London. 5 stars from all of us!! It was an amazing 4hrs of knowledge and stories from Chris that we would highly recommend

      Can’t believe it’s been 1 year since our trip to London and our black cab tour. We have such wonderful memories of our tour with Moses. This was our first trip to London, and this was such a great way to see the city. We enjoyed being able to get out and walk through sections of the city with Moses sharing history and facts and guiding us to places we would not have known about on our own. Highly recommend and would definitely book another tour if we we’re in London.

      My husband and two boys were delighted to experience London in a Black Cab with our tour guide Dave! The car was clean, comfortable and full of amenities. Before we could even ask for anything, Dave anticipated everything we needed. We were able to see so much in a single day tour. It was our first time in London so we were able to get a handle on the City so we could take deeper dives later in the week. Dave was also able to curate the experience based on what interested us most. He knew we loved history, Harry Potter, music and the royals and he planned our day so we experienced every single one. We went inside venues that we would never have access to as regular tourists and were the only people in certain locations getting a private tour. It was very premium and seeing London in a Black Cab made it far more special than any other experience we could have selected. We can't wait to book another visit!

      We had a wonderful tour of London and learned so much about the history of this town. Highlights were that we hit many of the must-see spots and toured the Guild Hall which really brought Old City London to life for us. Our tour guide was Paula, and she really made the city come alive for us. The tour was booked for 45 hours but Pula provided a tour closer to 5 hours and left us off at a great pub for lunch.

      This was our first time visiting London and we are so glad we did the black cab tour our first day. Even with awful weather (freezing cold, windy, and raining) our guides Chris & Dean went above and beyond to make this a fun, informative, & unforgettable experience. From making sure we got all the pictures we wanted, to finding places they could park us near front doors, to taking us places indoors so we could see the sights but stay dry & warm while still experiencing so much London’s rich history. The vehicle was clean, the guides are very knowledgeable, and they even made sure we had umbrellas. I would highly recommend that anyone new to London start their trip with a tour like this. It’s a great way to figure out what you want to see more of or learn more about while you’re visiting. Five start to experience all the way!

      On our 1st full day in London we booked a 4 hour private tour. We were lucky enough to have Lawrence as our tour guide and saw all of the important things that we wanted to see. Lawrence was absolutely the best Tour Guide!! He great knowledge of London and its history, took pictures for us and made this experience absolutely amazing for us! I would highly recommend Heritage Black Cab tours, hopefully you will be lucky enough to have Lawerence show you around the city!

      We had the Premier Classic London Tour, which was a 4 hours city tour of London, on 31 December 2019.

      Thank you very much Paul Williams, for giving us the most enjoyable and wonderful city tour we ever had. We enjoyed the trip thoroughly, and it was a very well presented and informative tour, with plenty of stops for photos. Paul even offered to become our photographer during the tour (he offered us the minute the tour started).

      We have been to London 6 years ago, and we wanted to recreate some of our photos in 2013. Paul went to great length to make this happen. He took our pictures to the right angle so they would look similar with the pictures we took 6 years ago. Very nice and kind of him. We really appreciate that.

      We had a great day with Paul. We highly recommend this tour and hope to return to do it again !!

      Antony loves London and his passion for the city really made our tour special. The Black cab tour is the best way for a small group to see the highlights of the city. Antony is very personable and funny and we would highly recommend him to anyone interested in this tour. We saw some great parts of the city that we would never have found on our own. He knew where to go for the best view of the changing of the guard which was a sight to see. His enthusiasm for London makes us want to return very soon.

      Our tour guide, Steve DeNiero, was knowledgeable, funny, and responsive to our interests. He listened to our requests and supplemented the regular sites with specific things that we requested to see. As we went around the city, he explained the various histories and significance of the buildings with wit and enthusiasm. I highly recommend this type of tour if you only have a short amount of time and want to see many points of interest. I also highly recommend Steve! He was a wonderful guide!
