Excellent Tour, Amazing Guide - My wife and I visited London for our babymoon and decided to book a private cab tour to help us get the lay of the land. Simon was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. He tailored the tour to show us as much as possible, including the iconic landmarks. He gave a lot of history along the way and took a ton of great pictures for us. Absolutely 10/10 - thank you Simon for an amazing experience!

Fabulous morning exploring London - Stephen was absolutely excellent on our tour of London. He took my son and me all around the best sights, sharing interesting information about London and its history. He was particularly great with my 9 year old son, sharing facts that kept him interested throughout the tour. We will definitely use Stephen again upon our return to the UK, and would recommend to our friends and family.

Top London Highlight - We had a wonderful time with Simon on this tour! It was the perfect way to start our trip to the UK. He knew all the places to go and took amazing photos of us at each sight. Big bonus was seeing Queen Camilla coming from St. James’s palace in her car (thanks to Simon knowing from the activity at the gate that we should wait). WOW. I can’t recommend this tour enough. At the end, Simon dropped us near a marvelous fish & chips restaurant, which was one of our favorite London meals. Can’t wait to return and do it all over again.

THE best tour of London!!! - So much fun! Simon was amazing! He took us to so many places and the 3 hrs just flew by. We have teenagers and a 9 year old and everyone agreed this was the best tour we took! He took fabulous pictures of the whole family at each stop for us so no one was left out. Now we have beautiful family photos also. I should have booked another day with him. Now I know for next time!

Visit and learn about main sites and hidden gems in London and have your pictures taken - We had a wonderful experience! Simon, our guide, was very passionate, knowledgeable, and easygoing. We visited so many key sites across the city and Hidden gems and learned so much. Simon was also an impressive photographer and he took so many amazing photos of the family using the landmarks as a backdrop.

Awesome Quick Private London Tour ! - Neil provided an excellent overview of London highlights. I had previously visited, but my 3 companions had not. He condensed highlights into an amazing 4 hour London synopsis: Westminister Abbey, London Bridge, Tower Bridge, changing of the guards, Kensington Palace apothecary shoppes, etc. He provided historical and anecdotal info, and found excellent parking spots for easy access to stopping points. He is an excellent photographer!!!. Highly recommend.

Fantastic private tour of central London - With only a few days in London (first time for me and my son), we wanted to book a tour that allowed us to see principal landmarks and learn a bit while we were here. Simon definitely delivered! He's extremely knowledgeable, personable, and accommodating. In three hours, we toured the highlights of central London, and Simon has picked out spectacular photo spots all along the itinerary. If you're looking for an excellent, informative private tour in an immaculate black cab, you will not be disappointed!

Best tour and tour guide. This is the one thing that you need to book when in London. Simon is the best. - If you do only one thing when you are in London book a private tour with Simon. You will not regret it. He and his tour was the highlight of our trip to London and Paris. He will cater a tour to fit the needs of your group and will make it so much fun. He can navigate the city blindfolded and will get you close up and personal with all of the best spots you want to see and he will take great photos along the way . He is also filled with incredible amounts of knowledge and will give great recommendations so I recommend doing his tour in the begging of our trip.
