Tour description provided by Viator

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!
I will normally start at 10:00AM for a 5 hour tour.  I will pick you up at either an agreed central London location (most likely your hotel lobby) or a London airport with a surcharge, and drop off anywhere in central London. Light refreshments will be provided. I will narrate the tour and provide in depth knowledge and insight as we pass each sight. Learn the fascinating history of the monarchy back to 1066 as we admire the Tower of London and Buckingham Palace. Understand British political origins and developments whilst taking in the sights of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. Just next door, appreciate the links between politics and the monarchy as we explore Westminster Abbey and then compare its beautiful architecture to that of St. Paul's Cathedral. Tour highlights include: • Buckingham Palace • Westminster Abbey • Houses of Parliament • Big Ben • The London Eye • St. Paul's Cathedral • Guildhall • Bank of England • The Shard • & more!
