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.

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.

Seeing the usual and some atypical sights of a London tour without the crowds was a great experience. My favorite part of the tour was going into a cigar store that was patronized by Winston Churchill. Our driver (who I call Tall Paul) took us down to a basement room where Churchill would often tryout a new cigar. I had my photo taken sitting in Winston's chair! We also enjoyed a nice lunch with Paul at the Traitors Gate Pub then crossed the street to see the execution point for many nobles and clergy who offended the king.

The trip with Moses was wonderful. He gave an in depth historical tour of London. He was very considerate of our needs and our comfort. Moses was even kind enough to take pictures of us in front of all the sites. The knowledge he has would fill an encyclopedia! This is the absolute best day spent in London. Thank you Moses!!!
