Paul V.

Orpington, Kent, United Kingdom

Hi and welcome to my page where I hope to give you a little more information about myself.

I'm a born and bred Londoner and have lived and worked within this great city for the majority of my life (the exception being a 4-year stint in Switzerland). Previously working within Royal Mail followed by the Global Foreign Exchange Markets.

I am now a fully qualified London 'Cabbie', qualified taxi guide and a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers (the 104th Livery company of the City of London), and offer private and personal tours of London and beyond in an ICONIC London black cab, neither of which I ever thought I would be doing, but I can wholeheartedly say two of the best decisions I have possibly made in my working life. Firstly becoming a 'London Cabbie' gave me the new challenge and freedom I needed and then from there getting involved in offering tours, I honestly fell in love with my hometown again whilst doing the knowledge, and showing the sights of this fantastic city and creating wonderful memories on my tours is hard to beat.

My aim is to give YOU the tour that YOU want when YOU want, always keeping in mind that it is YOUR vacation and YOUR memories, and to show you the history of London (and beyond), both the famous and lesser-known sites in a fun and relaxed manner.

Please take your time looking at what is available in the tour section, but always remembering that my aim is to tailor each tour to YOUR own needs and requests.

Remember it's . . . . . .

YOUR time, YOUR tour, YOUR memories!
