Raymond W.

London, England, United Kingdom

Hi, I'm Ray! My tours offer a fun and relaxed style of bespoke and unique content.

I am flexible to accommodate any of your interests and cultural insights.
The best way to describe my tours is that I will "hold your hand" for the day, have unlimited photo opportunities and show you those unique and interesting places that only a London Taxi Driver will know. We will drive, walk, laugh and learn.

My highest achievement is being a proud father of 4, following that I have been a licensed London Black Taxi Driver since completing the London knowledge in 1987. I studied the knowledge whilst working as a Printer in Fleet Street (home of London's newspaper industry) during the '80s. More recently in 2016, I qualified as a Taxi Guide with the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, studying at the City of London Museum.

I was made in London, and have remained a resident Londoner. I love to share my knowledge and passion for this beautiful city that I call home. I have so much to share with you - stories and sites from Roman remain to the current day.
I have travelled extensively across the world touring South East Asia, China, Australia, South Pacific, East to West coast across North America, and Europe. As an extensive traveller myself, I feel that I can provide what tourists would be looking for in their experience visiting London.

A Recent Review of this guide

Raymond may have been one of the best guide's our family has ever had. His knowledge of the places we visited was amazing. He mixed in the right amount of historical data with other fun facts that kept the day interesting for our entire family. He was also very flexible with our schedule, allowing us to decide how much time we wanted to spend at each site. The transportation was clean, well stocked with water and food and very comfortable for a family of 5. I would highly recommend Ray.
