An delightfully eccentric experience of London’s secret locations by taxi
“Like going for a spin in the Tardis.”
Hop into an iconic London black cab to discover parts of London most people never see. Choose between a 3 or 4 hour tour in which you will explore the lost, forgotten and eccentric parts of London. Fancy stopping off for a spot of shopping, fish & chips, or a cheeky pint in a pub? Not a problem! Just let us know and we’ll tailor your tour just for you.
Our taxi tours are the perfect morning or afternoon activity in London, steeped in history and heritage. Our guide provides a full commentary and stories of London. Know you are going to be stuck at Heathrow on a layover? We can come and get you, take you on a fabulous tour of London and get you back for your flight!
Door to door
Get picked up right from the door of your hotel or any location you specify. You’ll be met by your own personal ‘cabby’ who’ll whisk you off to see the sights of London in an iconic London taxi.
Get lost in the City
You’ll spot familiar sights as you follow winding streets through the City of London to seek out lesser known hidden gems.
Step out to explore on foot
To fully appreciate some of the places we want to show you this will involve a little more walking than the average London private taxi tour.
"A fun bunch of hipster historians."
Stop to shop / eat / photograph
If you’d like to incorporate some additional activities or refreshment into your tour, just let us know and we’d be happy to accommodate your request.
Your cabby knows best
London taxi drivers are famous for having learnt some 25,000 streets within a six-mile radius of Charing Cross, which means you’ll always take the best route.

Is my guide qualified?

In addition, many of our London taxi tour guides have additional tour guide qualifications which means their knowledge of London history, buildings, places and people is second to none.
When will my taxi guide pick me up?
Your Taxi Tour Guide will pick you up from your London hotel or any other central London location that suits you. We will send you a SMS text to let you know your Taxi Tour Guide has arrived.
Can I be dropped off at a different location?
When your private tour is finished we can either recommend a drop off point that is in keeping with your themed tour to maximise the sights you see and fun you have that day. Otherwise we would be happy to drop you off anywhere in central London that suits you.
Are London taxi's wheelchair accessible?
All of our taxis are wheelchair accessible. However, if a person remains in the wheelchair for the duration of the tour it may limit the number of people the taxi can accommodate comfortably. Just let us know and we will work it all out. Collapsible wheelchairs and child pushchairs can be stored in the front of the taxi cab.
What if there is something I want to see in particular?
If you want to see a particular sight on your private tour and don’t know if we cover it, just let us know and we will make it happen.
Can we stop and get out of the taxi?
If you see something on the taxi tour that really catches your eye and you want to stop to take a better look just tell your Taxi Tour Guide. Along with your full tour commentary there will be plenty of opportunities to stop and take photographs. Our London Taxi Tour Guide will be happy to take photos of your group, just ask.
Can we stop for lunch?
If you would like a 4 hour private tour with two different themes and a nice lunch break in the middle, or a 4 hour tour with a lunch break – just tell us, we want to make it all work for you. You will only be charged the price of a 4 hour London Taxi Tour.
