Craig Holden – BCHT Driver Guide

Accredited London Tour Guide

Craig Holden
BCHT Driver Guide

I’ve been one of London’s iconic Black Cab Drivers for 26 years (I know I don’t look old enough….). I’ve been married for 27 years and have 2 beautiful daughters.

My interests include most sports – mainly football & golf.

I’ve been a qualified guide for 3 years. I’m also a member of The Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, a charity organisation which, amongst other things, organises an annual trip for very sick / terminally ill children to Disneyland Paris, in which I’m privileged to take part.

I enjoy doing tours and showing visitors our great city and its famous landmarks, giving them a brief history & some anecdotes along the way, whether it’s a Classic tour or Harry Potter it’s all about putting a smile on people’s faces whatever their age.

I look forward to seeing you soon!

  • Excellent!
    I took the trip with my parents who are not very mobile these days. The tour guide,Craig, was very accommodating and they were able to see the city without much walking which was perfect. The guide was knowledgeable, entertaining, and made the most out of the few short hours we had. If you can afford the cost, I highly recommend.

  • Great ride
    We had Craig as our tour guide, he was so friendly and informative covered every historic part of london and even gave us insider tips for where to go for changing of guards, best time for attractions etc. Really made our trip! Thanks

  • Great overview of London
    Our Black Cab Heritage Tour with Craig was excellent. We arrived in London in the morning and had the tour that first afternoon. It was a great way to have an overview of the city and see so many sights in a four hour period. We now know where we want to go back and spend some additional time. I definitely recommend this tour company for a knowledgeable and well planned tour of London.

  • Amazing time with Craig
    We had a phenomenal time with Craig from Black Cab Heritage tours. From the set up with Rob, all communication was easy and smooth and very easy to schedule. Once our day started, Craig was prompt, if not early, and we were on our way for a fabulous day exploring London. He took time to get to know what each of us were interested in, and then geared his tour to accommodate us. He took us all over London with lots of fun tidbits. We saw Westminster Abby, Buckingham Palace and changing of the guard, St Paul’s Cathedral, and lots of other things as well as some fun extras like the Kingsman suit shop (from the movie the Kingsman) as well as Lobb & Co where they make amazing hand crafted shoes, as well as a cigar place that had the famous chair where Churchill was pictured and where he tried his cigars. Huge huge deal to my hubs that LOVES Churchill!
    I would HIGHLY recommend this tour and Craig to get the overview and highlights of London! So much better than a tour of 50+ people!
    Thank you Craig for such a great day and taking care of us AND keeping our 9 year old excited and engaged for the entire tour!!!

  • First off, Craig is a fountain of London knowledge! I enjoyed the 3 hour afternoon tour of London with my 8 month old son and 15 year old niece on the day we arrived in London. He was a pleasure to listen to as he shared many interesting facts and anecdotes about London and its landmarks, and we had a lot of fun with him.

  • It was a great Christmas Lights tour and my friends loved it! Please tell Craig he did a wonderful job!

Black Cab Heritage Tours is Good to Go!

At Black Cab Heritage Tours we place the highest priority on the health and welfare of our customers, team and the wider community. This is particularly the case during the current COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.  It may be a little while before our guests arrive from overseas, as the UK Government recently announced the current 14-day quarantine period remains in place for inbound tourists - to be reviewed every 3 weeks.  We have, however, started to offer a limited number of private tour options as of Saturday 4 July, initially to singles, couples and small nuclear family groups - and we continue to accept future reservations. 

Our approach is in line with the most recent guidance issued by the UK government, and additional advice from the World Health Organisation. We have also put in new health and safety measures in order to promote social distancing and to limit all non-essential face-to-face contact, which has been recognized by Visit Britain as "Good to Go!"
