London, United Kingdom

Discover London from the comfort of a private London Black Taxi. I have been a London Taxi Driver since 1994 and I am also a qualified taxi guide.

See traditional sights and iconic buildings at their very best. My routes are planned to optimise viewing and photographic opportunities whether on the move, stationary or walking around the sights. I enjoy taking photos and can help you build a memorable album of your trip.

You will discover fascinating facts about London, from its famous architecture and landmarks, to its rich cultural diversity, to its central position in relation to global history.

All this from the comfort of a personal taxi allowing the flexibility to stop and walk at interesting points yet the ability to cover large amounts of ground in short periods of time, ensuring you get the most out of your tour!

Peter did a phenomenal job. He has tremendous knowledge of English history. More importantly, you will make a new friend. He has a great sense of humor and will craft a highly flexible and customized tour to suit your interests. You will leave with a smile to be followed by many more when you review a treasure trove of pictures and articles related to your experience. Ten stars!

Peter was absolutely amazing in showing us around London! He was a wealth of knowledge and knew that we would not be able to remember everything so he followed up with information and photos of our entire day! I have revisited our day with him numerous times! Would highly recommend!

My wife, 2 small children and I had the best time touring London with Peter, he is an amazing human with an incredible knowledge of London and world history and how it relates to London, I highly recommend taking a tour with him and amazing for kids, they will learn (adults too) more history in 1 day than in 5 years of school. Thank you Peter, we will definitely call you back when we come back to London.

No where will you find a more knowledgeable person about all the history in London. I would put Peter up against ANY professor. Knowledgeable, tailored to your personal preferences and very entertaining. If you want a tour of London, a real tour, this is the man you want leading the way. I cannot more highly recommend.

Peter started off as a guide and ended up a good friend. An absolute gentleman and pleasure to spend time with. His enthusiasm for what he does is infectious. You cannot go wrong having him whizz you around London, his knowledge of the city and its history is second to none. Plenty of fascinating facts and anecdotes that you won’t find in the history books, and what better way to get around the London that in a Black Cab!

We had a day to spend while traveling to other countries and decided to do the driving tour of London. Unfortunately there was a 100km bike ride and most of the streets were shut down. Our guide Peter Mulcahy was great. He had to adjust the tour to more of a walking tour which worked out great. Highly recommend Peter.

I can not say enough about how much my mother and I loved the Black Cab Classic London Tour with Peter Mulcahy. Peter is so knowledgeable and passionate about London’s history and people. He was so thoughtful to include a personal visit to the studio of violin maker Gareth Ballard, a special touch that meant the world to us as music lovers. Peter has a great sense of humor, he made us laugh to tears during our whirlwind four hour tour of hundreds upon hundreds of years of history. We see London with new eyes thanks to Peter, we cannot thank him enough for making a once-in-a-lifetime trip even more special. “As long as they gaze on Waterloo Sunset, they are in paradise...” -Ray Davies
