Booked black cab 2 hour tour. Was very pleased the driver (Mark Taylor) turned up on time and was really a nice guy. Took us to every place I asked him to. With some extras thrown in. He was really knowledgeable and proud of his country. We saw so much in the allotted time. He was so good in fact we booked him a second time. You can just imagine how much we saw of London.

Thank Linda W

Firstly, our tour guide Moses Gonzalez was fun, friendly and a brilliant, knowledgeable tour guide. Dont be deceived by his name by the way, he's a born and bred Londoner. Unfortunately some relentless rain meant we had to miss out on group photos outside some prominent buildings. Earlier we got caught in a heavy downpour when doing a short walking tour with Moses, we all had brollies but our legs got soaked so, once back in the taxi of course the windows steamed up at a rate nobody could do anything about and we were fighting that for the rest of the tour. We also strained to hear the running commentaries at times due to the partition between us and the driver, even more so when the air conditioning was turned up on our request to try and clear the steamed up windows. I was expecting a 'crisp, clear intercom system' as described on their website which would have made a huge difference. So overall, id definitely choose Moses again, we cant blame the weather on the tour company. We accept prices to be high in London, so its not cheap to do a tour, added to this i got an unexpected £5+ extra fee on my credit card statement because for some reason, the online payment goes via an American merchant bank in dollars, then converted back to Sterling with a currency exchange fee. So, its one for the memory that had its flaws and had its good bits too. But to be fair, if we do another Black cab tour, we will choose this company again.

We are only in London for a couple of days. A friend recommended Black Cab Tours for a private and customized guided tour of London. After flying in on the red eye ... a Black Cab tour with Mick was the perfect first day excursion in London.

We told Mick that we had already seen all of the major tourist sites in London and this time we wanted to get a feel for the different neighborhoods and off-the-usual-path places to see. In just four hours he did just that! In addition, we also made a quick detour so we could tell our kids we saw where some Harry Potter movie scenes were filmed!

We now have a plan for the rest of our short stay here in London - we know exactly the neighborhoods and shops and restaurants we want to visit. We also plan to bring the kids back and show them some of the sites that Mick recommended.

Mick is a great guide with a lot of knowledge of England - historically and today. Book a Black Cab Tour to be sure you can make the most of your stay in London!

We took a 4 hour tour the day we arrived. It helped us get a feel for the city, see a some great areas we would not have seen otherwise. Rob and Moses did a great job!

Black Cab Heritage Tours is a must if you want to see London for a day in a comfortable, knowledgeable, and enjoyable way! Our driver Lawrence was the most personable and knowledgeable driver we have ever experienced. It was as if we were being shown London by a family member. Lawrence was courteous and thoughtful in ensuring we saw sites we were interested in like Abbey Road but also showed us very interesting off the beaten path sites as well as all the major places everyone would want to experience while in London! We highly recommend Black Cab Heritage Tours and ask for Lawrence when you book!!

We booked a 4 hour tour of London mainly due to my mother not being up to travelling around London by hop on hop off bus.

Dave was an excellent guide who ensured that all four of us go to see what we were interested in.

I would highly recommend Black Cab Heritage Tours.

We had a long layover at Heathrow. We even had to claim our luggage. Mike helped us load our luggage in his cab. He took us were ever we wanted. After we were totally exhausted from sleep derivation , seeing London, and eating fish and chips he got us back to the airport and helped us check out baggage and make our net flight.

We travelled to London (from Paris) for the day to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday - and what better to way to see a snapshot of the city then a Black Cab Heritage Tour! We were picked up at St Pancras by Chris Heerey, our guide and driver, he managed to show us the cream of London, including the best view of the Changing of the Guards and Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, Downing Street and Westminster Abbey. He was enthusiastic and fun - this was definitely not a boring tour ! One of our group had never been to London and this tour gave her a taste and a hankering to go back ! Very enjoyable and informative - would highly recommend a Black Cab Heritage Tour - even if you've been to London before it was way better than a bus trip, much more personal and so much fun. Thanks Chris for a great day!
