Paul W.

London, England, United Kingdom

London has over 2000 years of history. It has survived disease, fire and war.

It has Roman walls, Norman towers, Tudor palaces, Renaissance splendour, Georgian elegance, Victorian grandeur, beautiful green spaces and breathtaking modern structures. London cannot be tamed. All you can do is revel in its richness and enjoy the adventure.

My name is Paul and I'm lucky enough to live and work in this fabulous city. I have always appreciated the history and culture and there is nothing more I love than sharing it with people from all over the world. I am a licensed London Taxi driver having completed the famous 'Knowledge of London' in 2010. Since then I have become a qualified Taxi tour guide. Not only do my guests get to see and learn about the rich history of the main sites, we will also go off the beaten track and discover some of the lesser known parts of the city.

Travelling in an iconic London Taxi is the best and most elegant way of meandering through the ancient streets of London. It allows us to use your time wisely. We can use the bus lanes to avoid traffic jams and park up and explore the sites in more detail. My fully air conditioned Taxi also has USB charging points so don't forget your charging cables.

Whether you are interested in The Romans, The Royals or The Beatles, my passion and knowledge will provide you with a fun, informative and engaging tour.
