About Your Tour

Black Cab Heritage Tours was founded in 2008, and are now the largest provider of private bespoke Tours that are undertaken in an iconic London taxi. 

BCHT offer exclusive private (perfect for small groups) tours and day excursions in a traditional London taxi (up to 6 guests) – with a knowledgeable London cabbie who is also a Tour Guide (accredited by the City University).

Services are priced up ‘per group’ and not ‘per person’ – unlike many other London tour operators.

We provide panoramic sightseeing experiences, that get up close and personal with famous landmarks and UNESCO World Heritage Sites – but our presentation stops are provided in less crowded locations, and are also perfect for those all-important photo shoots.

Classic London Tours are extremely popular, as are our themed options for Harry Potter, James Bond and Beatles fans (for example), plus also Day Excursions to the English Countryside – and your service can also be further customised and tailor-made for any bespoke requirements.

Fees are fully inclusive of – private professional guiding services, door to door transportation, parking and tolls, local taxes, courtesy onboard refreshments and public liability insurance.


We can comfortably accommodate up to 5 people in an iconic traditional London Black Cab – but we also have 6-seaters such as a Mercedes Vito London Black Cab – plus the new Electric Cab London Black Cab which has panoramic sightseeing roof.

All London Black Cabs are licensed by ‘Transport for London’, which is the Local Government authority responsible for all transportation systems in Greater London – and we can utilise the capital’s bus lanes for extra efficiency.

Our vehicles are maintained to a very high standard – and each vehicle is valeted before any service – all air vents and surfaces are wiped clean with antibacterial disinfectant agents on a daily basis.

Our vehicles can accommodate wheelchair-assisted travellers, ramps are provided for easy on and off access plus steps for those with mobility issues.

Health and safety is a priority at BCHT – and guests are additionally informed of passenger cabin controls, plus inclusive grab handles for use when alighting and entering the vehicle, and lighting is provided at floor level.

Seat belts are a legal requirement in Great Britain, although child’s seats are not in a London Black Cab – but  we would be happy to provide one or booster seats if required.

Driver Guides

We always Meet and Greet clients at central London hotels or vacation residences, and the final set-down point can either be back at the start-point or preferred London – so , if you intend to head off to a restaurant, shopping or the theatre It’s a free cab ride!

All vehicles are fully air conditioned for the warmer months – and hosts always provide courtesy drinks for guest’s additional comfort.

BCHT Driver Guides are locals who know the REAL London and are passionate about THEIR London – and can get right under its skin to provide you with a factual and interesting historical Tour, which is also fun and entertaining! Hosts provide running commentary via a crisp, clear intercom system – and your questions will not get lost on a bus full with 50 people!

Sit back – and enjoy the ride!

Your health and safety are our top priorities at Black Cab Heritage Tours. We've implemented the following special measures to keep you safe both during and after your tour:

Private Tours: London Black Cabs have a maximum seating capacity for up to 6 guests in a private setting. This capacity is ideal for couples and small family groups.

Stringent Cleaning: Each guide sanitises their black cab with disinfectant cleaning agents after each tour activity. The passenger area has separately controlled air-conditioning. Driver Guides wash and sanitise their hands on a frequent basis throughout the day. In addition, hand sanitizer is available to all guests.

Social Distancing: A transparent partition screen provides a private passenger compartment, providing a safe space for guests. This exceeds the current 2 metres minimum distance based on UK Government guidelines. Our drivers promote panoramic sightseeing in the safest and cleanest form of London transport. Presentation stops are conducted in quiet open air locations, away from crowded hot spots.
