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.

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.

Maggie and Friends. Happy Customer

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.
