London Highlights and Hidden London Secrets in a Day!
Premier Classic Tour will include a Panoramic sweep of London in my traditional London Black Cab.
We stop at all of the most iconic London landmarks - spending some time looking at their rich history in an informative and also a fun and entertaining way.
Panoramic highlights will include: Tower of London, Tower Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral, Big Ben, Palace of Westminster, Buckingham Palace Westminster Abbey - as well as a little 'hidden London', 'secret London'.
During our day together we can also have a stroll around, and our London experience together can include walking part or all of any of my signature walking tours: 'Whitehall, an icon that shaped a Nation', 'Mayfair, Grandeur or Den of Iniquity', 'Seduction in St. James's', 'World War One Commemoration Walk' or 'London's Burning'.
Tours can be customised and adapted to include Traditional Afternoon Tea or even extended to include a rather special personal wine tasting evening in Greenwich so please contact me for details.
I shall commence a Panoramic route by transporting you back 2, 000 years to the old Roman waterfront, which is where it all got going for London in 43AD.
The morning will be spent in the old medieval City of London, where we shall take in highlights that include: Roman Amphitheatre, The Guildhall, Mansion House, Tower of London, The Monument, Tower Bridge and St. Paul's Cathedral.
Before midday I shall introduce you to the purveyor of the finest coffee in London in one of London's oldest markets before continuing our Tour.
We shall explore a little secret London, a little hidden London before taking lunch in a traditional English pub.
During the afternoon we shall be taking in the River Thames vista before moving up to Westminster, where highlights will include: Palace of Westminster, Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and Buckingham Palace, Downing Street.
We shall take a stroll around Mayfair or St. James's before continuing our Panoramic Tour.

An absolutely brilliant day with Rob our guide and, Brian our driver. We only had the weekend to explore London and are beyond thrilled with the amazing storytelling and navigation today! Rob is incredibly knowledgeable and knows London like the back of his hand after 30 plus years of black cab service. We were treated not only to the "must-sees" but also some fabulous insider-only tidbits. Highly, HIGHLY recommend this tour. Thank you Rob and Brian for a great day! We'll certainly see you both again.
