Your Taxi Tour Will Include:

Collecting and dropping you back at the airport or airport hotel.  Please be aware when planning that Stanstead, Heathrow and Gatwick are all  roughly a 1 hour drive from central London

A popular London taxi tour of your choice - check out the choices and remember we can always mix things up a bit as well. Whatever tour you choose you really are going to see all of London's best bits, some spectacular London sightseeing and of course we allow plenty of time to grab snacks, take comfort breaks, photo opportunities  so on.  

Some people prefer to make their own way into London via the Heathrow Express,   the Stanstead Express  or Gatwick Express  and when they do we pick up from Paddington Station, Liverpool St.reet Station or Victoria..   In that case the prices are the same as displayed on our website.

How does it work?

Mix It Up a Bit for the Perfect Taxi Tour

More About Your Iconic London Black Taxi Tour

The  shape and time of your  private taxi tour  depends on the time that your  airport layover happens and how long you have.  So for example, if it is after 6pm you could enjoy the London by Night taxi tour.  Or if it is during day you might enjoy the London Highlights or Secret London taxi tour.   And we can also mix it up a bit so you get to enjoy a little bit of everything while you are here.


And remember, when  planning, for your stopover you will need 5 hours for a 3 hour taxi tour and 6 hours for a 4 hour taxi tour, because we need an hour each way to drive you into London and get you back to the airport. On a good day you should be able to get through immigration in an hour but plan  extra time if you need to collect baggage.

Need to talk things through? No problem, we can help you with the planning and thinking through London tour ideas for your layover , just give us a call or email us.

What to expect

Your London Taxi Tour Guide
All of our London taxi tour guides have passed the world famous Knowledge of London exam and have on average been driving a London Black Taxi for over 25 years.  In addition, many of our London taxi tour guides have additional tour guide qualifications which means their knowledge of London history, buildings, places and people is second to none. Their knowledge and passion for London means that we are confident that whatever tour you chose it will be fun, informative and memorable. Your Taxi Tour Guide will also have numerous anecdotes and personal stories to share with you on that day!

Pick Ups
Your Taxi Tour Guide will pick you up from your London hotel or any other central London location that suits you. We will send you a SMS text to let you know your Taxi Tour Guide has arrived.

Drop offs
When your private tour is finished we can either recommend a drop off point that is in keeping with your themed tour to maximise the sights you see and fun you have that day. Otherwise we would be happy to drop you off anywhere in central London that suits you.

People and people with disabilities
Each Taxi can accommodate between 5 or 6 people. Just let us know how many people will be taking the tour when you book.

All of our taxis are wheelchair accessible. However, if a person remains in the wheelchair for the duration of the tour it may limit the number of people the taxi can accommodate comfortably.  Just let us know and we will work it all out. Collapsible wheelchairs and child pushchairs can be stored in the front of the taxi cab.

Making your tour the perfect London Taxi Tour
If you want to see a particular sight on your private tour and don’t know if we cover it, just let us know and we will make it happen.

If you see something on the taxi tour that really catches your eye and you want to stop to take a better look just tell your Taxi Tour Guide. Along with your full tour commentary there will be plenty of opportunities to stop and take photographs. Our London Taxi Tour Guide will be happy to take photos of your group, just ask.

If you would like a 4 hour private tour with two different themes and a nice lunch break in the middle, or a 4 hour tour with a lunch break  – just tell us, we want to make it all work for you. You will only be charged the

Our tour far exceeded our expectations. We thought 4 hours might be a little hard work but the time flew by. 4 hours and 500 years of London history, a great idea with a very knowledgeable guide, Alan, to bring it all together.

I have been lucky enough to have takentours in many great cities but I have to say this was one of the best. We had a very knowledgeable taxi guide, he really took time to work out what we wereinterested in, apart for the royal family, and made the tour really work for us. Would certainly recommended this company to any of my family and friends visiting London.
