London, United Kingdom

The best way to see London is from an iconic London Black Cab. Add to this a qualified driver/guide and you have the full package. London Cabbies face one of the strictest and toughest examination processes known colloquially as The Knowledge. It can take up to 3 years for them to learn every road, street, lane, alley, bar, restaurant, statue, apartment block, Police Station, hotel, church, government building, train station, literally anywhere a paying customer would wish to be taken. They also need to know the quickest route.

On top of all that your driver is also a qualified guide having completed a written and oral exam through the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers. You will travel from west to east and get to feast on all the history, heritage and culture this vibrant city has to offer.

What a fantastic day we had with Paul touring and exploring London! This is the perfect way to see London in a day. The day was spectacular due to Paul’s attention to detail and effortless ability to guide us about the city from one amazing location to the next! He tailored the day to ensure we visited all of the historic sites we hoped to see. My family and I highly recommend the tour and Paul as your guide!

This was such an incredible trip! This was our first time in London and Paul Williams was absolutely amazing. He was so kind and was very informative. Each place we went to had an amazing story and Paul was so great at explaining all of it. Would absolutely recommend to anyone going to London to book this experience with Paul.

Paul was an excellent tour guide showing us both all the traditional sites as well as some off the beaten track gems. He was extremely knowledgeable and could not have been nicer.

Absolutely flawless from start to finish! Paul was wonderful and patient with my two girls (12 & 9). My oldest has a physical disability which makes walking long distances a challenge. Paul was sensitive to her issues and got us front and center to all the premium spots. A real gem and overall fantastic experience!

Our driver Paul was a charming, knowledgable guide! He was very attentive to our needs and was always making sure that we all were on the same track as far as the tour for the day and what we wanted to see/visit. I highly recommend the full day tour as it was a wonderful experience without the crowds! We could not have had a better time! Thank you again Paul! And the restaurant that you found for us, had the best fish and chips!!!

This tour was what we hoped for and more. It does exactly what is says. You get a complete overview of London. Every sight we visited, Paul explained why it was there, what it was used for and had fantastic facts and stories. His storytelling technique is excellent. Travelling around in his iconic black cab was such a joyful experience. Paul was kind, considerate of our needs throughout the tour. We asked questions, he answered them all. This really is the best way to see London. I’ve been on private tours all over the world and this was easily the best. Thanks again for a first class experience.

Our guide, Moses, was very knowledgeable, knew a lot of history and was prepared for all our questions. The trip was very well prepared in advance, the rides were all organized with the clients' needs in mind.

Our driver, Paul, was exceptional! He fulfilled our wish list AND added many other fun stops as well. He went over and above our expectations... even going as far as to call me on the phone so I could actually talk in the iconic red phone booth by Kensington Palace. He made our day in London the best day ever! Would highly recommend!

My wife and I had 1 day in London and spent it with Paul on the Beatles Tour. Paul was a wonderful host and has put together a one of a kind tour. If you are a Beatles fan you will love this tour an my wife and I did.

We only had a short time in London and we knew we wanted to see so many sites. Trying to coordinate it all on our own would have been a nightmare, but Paul made it come true. He made us feel at ease immediately, it truly was like having a member of our family show us around. Paul arrived perfectly on time to our hotel and checked in with us on specific things we might want to see. We were not just “along for the ride”, he wanted to make sure it was what we wanted. The cab was comfortable and immaculately clean. We were able to make all the stops we wanted to including an added Beatles piece that my adult kid wanted to see. By the end of the day we were sad to say goodbye! I asked Paul for advice on transportation to the airport the next day and he actually offered his assistance. This is not a tour I would pass up, it gives you an in depth glimpse at London history and an interesting perspective on the city. We were beyond impressed with Paul and would recommend him to our family and friends.

Whoops, looks like something went wrong.
