Accredited London Tour Guide

BCHT Driver Guide

After a rich and fascinating career in the Metropolitan Police as a Detective, I joined London’s finest and became a London Cabbie. It was a real revelation completing the London Cab Tour Guide Course. London’s diverse and compelling history has always been of immense interest to me.

I regularly take people on tours in my London cab, including Royal London, Medieval London and of course the stunning London Premier Classic which incorporates all the major sites this incredible city has to offer.

I love the opportunity to show people the parts of this amazing city that most Londoners have never seen! Additionally, to provide an insight into everyday life in London today.

Royal Windsor incorporating the Castle, neolithic Stonehenge and of course the city of Bath with its Roman heritage and stunning Georgian architecture are among my favourites.

Tours are for up to 6 passengers in my Mercedes Vito London taxi with increased comfort for longer journeys.

Come to London! Maximise your stay by enjoying a tour with me as your expert guide.

  • Couldn’t have been better!
    This tour was amazing. We learned so much about London and it’s history while being entertained at the same time.
    Our guide Chris was absolutely top notch. His knowledge was impressive and he had a way of making history come to life. He was also very understanding and compassionate, as the friend I was touring with has some physical problems and he always kept that in mind in order to ensure that she was able to enjoy the tour as well.
    I highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to gain a better understanding of London and its history.

  • Chris was a a cool retired Bobbie and clearly proud of his heritage, and his city, and informative. He was accommodating and were we to have been more exacting, and has more time than half a day, he could have been a mate we could choose to hang with us while we got to know this magical city. Rob, central office was equally helpful, and accommodating. Easily recommend this outfit, and their vehicles are superb.

  • Booked the Windsor and Royal London tour. My mom uses a wheelchair so accessibility was an important consideration for us. The tour guide Chris reached out before the tour date to see if we had any special requests. The tour itself was fantastic. Chris was informative and engaging for a solid eight hours and was very good with answering my mom’s questions. He knew all of the wheelchair routes and tips and tricks to getting the most out of the experience. He even did well in navigating the traffic chaos in Westminster due to some protests that were occurring. I have been on many tours in the UK and other countries with my family and this was definitely one of the best.

  • Chris Heerey with Black Cab did such a wonderful job for our England visit we would insist on using him again.
    His knowledge of the history and the amount of effort he put in on research for our family’s heritage of Ludlow and the country was exceptional and we had several guides in several countries.
    He can get you through the city with ease as well with his knowledge and his equipment is top notch!
    Oh what a pleasant wonderful man.

  • I booked a London city tour and could not have been happier. Chris was very knowledgeable and pointed out many historical facts that otherwise would have gone unknown. He was very friendly and took the time to allow us to get out when we wanted and was well informed as to the required accessibility needed.
