London Highlights Tour

My Private Classic Half Day Highlights 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', as well some 'Movie Site Location London.
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.
This Tour is suitable also for family groups looking to get to know the sights and what London has to offer in half a day.


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 early part of our Half Day together 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.
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, St. James's Palace and Trafalgar Square.
This itinerary can be customised to your own bespoke requests and I can include a little Hidden London a little Secret London and for family groups some Movie Site location London.
Afternoon Tea or a Traditional London Pub is optional, and I know the best places for that!

A Recent Review of this tour

We took the 1/2 day Classic City of London Tour. It was an excellent tour given by a very knowledgeable guide- Rob W. We had lots of fun and learned a great deal about the city- both hidden secrets and major landmarks. Having Rob guide us and having a dedicated driver made all the difference- very efficient use of time with no distractions and of course- a beautiful car. Well done Rob and Brian! 5/5. Cheers Anthony and Diana and the BOYZ from Toronto, Canada
