Tour description provided by Viator

This fun-packed four-hour private black taxi tour takes you around London, seeing the major sights and following in the footsteps of Shakespeare, the Beatles, James Bond and Sherlock Holmes. Your private expert guide will share fun anecdotes about the history and cultural impact of these English icons as you zip around London in your own black cab.

Driving around London in your private black taxi, passing major sights, your knowledgeable guide will take you in the footsteps of Sherlock Holmes, William Shakespeare, the Beatles and James Bond.

Pass 221B Baker St and see where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle really lived and practiced medicine. You'll follow Sherlock Holmes on clues all over London from the books to the films.

Enter the world of James Bond and order your martinis ‘shaken, not stirred’ as you explore the sights of Bond’s London. See Ian Fleming’s house, MI6 and MI5. Visit James Bond film location sites all around town and find out about real spies and how they worked and where they met.

Jump on the wave of London's swinging ’60s. You'll follow the Fab Four -- John, Paul, George and Ringo -- seeing where they lived, worked and played. Abbey Road, Paul’s London office, John and Yoko's flat, Brian Epstein's home plus a lot, lot more. You have your ‘Ticket to Ride’ to learn about how the Beatles conquered London and beyond.

Have you ever wondered where Shakespeare lived in London? Your private guide will drive you to Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and you'll see where the famous playwright lived in London, several statues dedicated to him, and the alleyways and streets he wandered. Your registered tour guide will tell you tales of William Shakespeare -- the man and his life.
