Lawrence O’Toole
BCHT Driver Guide

I am a qualified London tour guide. I was born in East London and am a married father of two who has been driving a London Taxi for over 18 years.

I have always been very passionate about London and all historical aspects attached to this great city. I especially enjoy sharing my wealth of knowledge of all aspects of our capital. I am a family man whose other interests include football, self-defence/martial arts and sport in general.

  • We really enjoyed our tour with Lawrence. Although our kids were tired he was able to engage all of us and show us things that were interesting for all age ranges. We especially enjoyed the Guildhall art gallery with the Roman ruins underneath it.
    I appreciate that he arrived early for us when he saw that our flight had arrived early. If you have a long layover in London I highly recommend the layover tour with this company.

  • Best London tour experience!!
    Black Cab Heritage Tours is a must if you want to see London for a day in a comfortable, knowledgeable, and enjoyable way! Our driver Lawrence was the most personable and knowledgeable driver we have ever experienced. It was as if we were being shown London by a family member. Lawrence was courteous and thoughtful in ensuring we saw sites we were interested in like Abbey Road but also showed us very interesting off the beaten path sites as well as all the major places everyone would want to experience while in London! We highly recommend Black Cab Heritage Tours and ask for Lawrence when you book!!

  • Amazing way to see the City!
    Our tour with Lawrence was amazing! We had one day in the city and wanted to maximize what we saw. We followed Lawrence’s suggestions for a wonderful tour. He even made changes on the fly based on our likes. Would definitely do another tour with Black Cab if we’re in the city again!

  • Highly recommend this tour! Timing was fantastic as Lawrence was waiting for us after baggage claim. We stopped at a London Pub for lunch en route to Stonehenge. Lawrence stayed with our luggage while we toured. Afterwards he dropped us back at our hotel. As we had little time in London this was a much better option than the tourist busses. Communication via email was absolutely fantastic.

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!"
