I was apprehensive at first due to having a special needs child along with two stroppy teenagers and their grumpy father, however Barry put me at ease and was accommodating to our needs.
It was such a magical and educational experience i must say, and something I’ve always wanted to do but kept putting it off.
Barry was a true professional with superior knowledge of London (both past and present) and kept us all entertained throughout. We have never laughed so much as a family and really got us in the Christmas spirit.
Thankyou so very much Barry for helping us make memories and i recommend Barry to anyone thinking of doing a tour… you will not regret it Barry is your man to help you make these memories that will last a lifetime. Yea

We flew into London for a wedding and were scheduled to meet Barry for a morning tour. We had a few mishaps and were unable to keep our appointment time. Barry was in constant contact, extremely flexible and changed our time for an afternoon tour. We were a party of 4 adults across 3 generations and different ponts of interest. Barry was able to accomodate our needs and interests by changing the itinerary to ensure we saw all the things we wanted to see. It rained on and off. He provided us with an umbrella. He made the tour fun and interesting bringing a wonderful sense of humor. Barry is so knowledgeable about all things London and speaks with such pride about his beloved city. The taxi was large and comfortable. We were able to easily see sights as we drove. Each time we stopped, Barry took pictures of our party and sent them all to us. If you only have a half day to see London, this is a great way to do it! I highly recommend Barry!.

What a brilliant 3 and a half hours we spent touring London with Barry yesterday!

I'm a Londoner born and bred and know the sights so well and my husband has also lived in London. We learned such a huge amount that we had never known before. The boys (12 and 16) thoroughly loved every minute of it and were enchanted with what they saw and heard.

One of my sons has autism and he was fully engaged for the entire time which shows just how excellent Barry was as a tour guide.

The tour flowed perfectly and even when we were stuck in the to be expected traffic of the city and West End Barry was full of really interesting information about where we were driving through.

On a practical note, I was a bit concerned about whether the boys would last for 3 and a half hours without a loo. There was no need to worry as Barry has plenty of this type of pit stop up his sleeve all across the capital so everyone was comfortable for the whole time!

An unexpected pleasure was the fact that Barry took photos of us all at all the different sights. We very rarely get a photo of all four of us and to have so many is really smashing and has given us a lovely record of our tour.

Barry is friendly, knowedgeable, funny and very engaging. He can get his taxi on a pin head which I'm sure is a vital quality needed for a London taxi driver.

The tour was excellen value for money and I recommend Barry 100%. I can't remember ever giving such a glowing reference to someone who supports "that" London team!!!!

Thanks Barry for an awesome tour.

All the best from Gill, Mike, Brandon and Joe

Barry was a fabulous tour guide!! We had just one day in London and saw more with Barry than we could have in three days on our own. He knew all the little nooks and crannies and tricks around the traffic and loads of history/back stories at every stop. And he was fun to be with!! He truly loves his job and it shows!!

He was also able to pick us up at Heathrow for an additional charge, but still saved us time and money.

Everyone who is seeing London for the first time MUST take this fabulous introduction to the full London experience. Our driver, Barry, blended ancient history with contemporary London life to present a portrait of new and old existing beautifully side by side. He was both informative and fun and seemed to read us well because he hit on the things that interested all of us. There were new bits of information and surprising experiences at every turn. Barry answered all of our many questions, took great photos of our group and left us well satisfied with our tour of London!

We were lucky enough to spend a magical tour around London on Wednesday 11th August, my son uses a wheelchair so it was important for us to choose a sightseeing tour that catered for his needs.

Ahead of the tour Barry took the time to understand what we wanted to see and asked whether there was anything in particular we wanted to see. Nothing was too much trouble, he made sure everything was accommodated.

Meeting Barry at our pick up point we were immediately made to feel at ease, showing us how easy it was for my son to get in and out of the taxi as we went around the city.

From the moment we set off, Barry was telling so much about his home city London, he is so knowledgeable about the city he loves!!

We took in all the sights, and had time for photos at each and every stop. In addition to this Barry also had some surprises for us…he took us to Leake Street so my son could try his hand at being the next Banksy, as we got out of the cab Barry pulled out a can of red spray paint and took us down to a place for him to spray his initials on the walls!!

We couldn’t have wished for a better tour and would recommend Barry Ivens for your tour around London.

Our tour with Barry was the best way to see the sights of London, fabulous new electric taxi is the way to go. I took my niece and nephews on this tour and they loved it. They said Barry was so good and loved being in his taxi. Barry picked us up at our hotel and welcomed us all kindly. Barry is very knowledgeable and knows all the best points of view to ensure us the best possible experience. Do not hesitate to book this as it is definitely the best way to see the amazing sights. Kids kept asking every day we where there could we get Barry’s taxi, he was brilliant with the kids and showed so much time and care.

We kick off our trip to London with Barry's tour, and it was everything we hoped for and more. It helped inform the rest of our trip, and we loved his stories and knowledge of London. He was also very easy and fun to spend the day with. We would highly recommend Barry to anyone looking to do a private tour!

What can I say, a fantastic tour of London in an immaculate Black Taxi. Our driver/tour guide Barry was brilliant and his knowledge of London second to none. We had three young kids with us who were very entertained by Barry. We got to see all the major sites and more and the kids even managed to do some graffiti which they loved. All in all a fantastic 4 hour trip around London which I would not hesitate to do again.

What can I say - 2020 has been a tough year but we finished on a high with a tour of London with our amazing guide Barry. We were picked up on time and an immaculately clean cab awaited us. We had a fabulous evening seeing the beautiful lights and sights and learning many interesting facts about our beautiful capital city. Barry is a brilliant and funny guide keeping us all entertained with his immense knowledge and with plenty of photo stops along the way. We can highly recommend Barry's tours and will definitely be booking again.
