I have been a London Taxi Driver for 25 years so you could say I know London pretty well by now !!
I am a member of the WCHCD Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, which makes me a Liveryman of the Company, also have the Freedom of the City of London which in theory entitles me to drive my Sheep over London Bridge free of charge or if I am naughty I can be hung with a Silk Rope no less !! Such quaint traditions we have.
I can show and tell you about our 2, 000 years of history, from the arrival of the Romans in 43AD there are still some remains to be seen up close, up to present day London with our diverse history, architecture, art galleries and museums. There is a lot to be seen and photographed. We can see a locals view of London from the comfort of my purpose built London Taxi (fully wheelchair compliant with AC) or we can venture on foot at some sights if you prefer.
All of my tours are very personal and bespoke to you; it's your tour so you decide what you would like to see and do it can be driving around with my designated driver so I can concentrate on showing and telling my guests all about the sites or if you prefer we can walk and get up close and personal to the places we visit or a combination of both it is really up to you just ask. Sights, shopping, restaurants or a bit of everything rolled into one tour or if you have a special interest in anything I'll arrange a tour around that for you.
I have been doing cab tours for over five years and love meeting and telling people about MY London.
I can be booked for a few hours or a full day in or out of London if you prefer an unhurried leisurely tour stopping and taking plenty of photographs. Lunch
/afternoon tea can be arranged or a visit at an old London pub to soak up the ambiance of our great city.
I am a reliable easy going London Cabby who will make your tour truly memorable, some of my personal interests are cooking making and designing jewellery at my workshop and walking my two French Bulldogs Albert and Ralph in Epping Forest where I live.
A Recent Review of this guide
I booked 2 last minute tours with this company for 4 teenagers that were in London traveling solo. I am pleased to report that this was another 5 star tour. If 4 teens give the tour an A+ then you know you have picked the right tour guide and tour. The group described the tour as very interesting and really liked the guide who was very funny and had a great personality. "He knew his stuff on London" they said. They told me it was not boring and they learned a lot. I am so pleased.
