About Your Tour

There can be no better way to get up close and personal with ALL of London’s famous landmarks than in a traditional London Black Taxi – with a knowledgeable London cabbie who is also a Tour Guide accredited by the City University.

For anyone coming to London as a tourist from home or abroad, a ‘Black Cab Heritage Tour’ is a “must do” to enhance your time spent in our historic capital city.

Likewise, if you are looking for a novel way to entertain clients, or perhaps looking to purchase a Birthday or Christmas present, this is the answer.

We can comfortably accommodate up to 5 people in an iconic traditional London Black Taxi, (or up to 6 people in our new Mercedes Vito London Black Taxis) – and all Tour rates are ‘per Tour’ and not ‘per person’, unlike other operators.

All of our Taxis can accommodate wheelchair-assisted passengers – and are licensed by ‘Transport for London’ the local Government body responsible for most aspects of the transport system in Greater London.

Your Driver Guide will meet and greet you at your central London hotel or preferred pick-up location* – and provide you with a panoramic tour of London, which will include ‘stand-up’ presentations at all of London’s iconic sights.

(* A central London location is one with a post or zip code E1, EC1, EC2, EC3, EC4, N1, SE1, SE11, SW1, SW3, SW7, SW10, W1, W2, W8, W10, W11, WC1, WC2).

Should your hotel be outside of these areas, or in the suburbs, or rail and airport termini, then we would be happy to supply you with a separate nominal quote.

Your Driver Guide will provide you with a running commentary through a crisp, clear intercom system – and your questions will not get lost on a bus full with 50 people!

Black Cab Heritage Tour Guides know the REAL London, and can get right under its skin to provide you with a factual and interesting historical Tour – which is also fun and entertaining!

We have deliberately head-hunted the best Guides in London – that will enhance your London experience.

Our Taxis are air-conditioned for those warmer summer months – and your Guide will provide courtesy drinks for your added comfort.

There will be ample opportunity for photographs, and even comfort-stops if required – and your Driver Guide will know all of the best coffee bars in town, just in case you need a top-up!

At the conclusion of your Tour you can be returned to your hotel, or any preferred central London location* – so, if you intend to head off to a restaurant, shopping or the theatre It’s a free cab ride!

Sit back – and enjoy the ride!
