Layover Tour

If you have limited time in or around London, this tour is for you. Our layover tour is completely flexible, allowing you to make the most of the time you have in the UK. We can pick you up from any location and show you the sights you want to see.

London is an enormous city – 1,572km2 to be precise – and without the help of a qualified guide, you won’t see much in a short space of time. That’s where we come in. Our taxi tour guides will ensure the time you have is time well spent, taking you on a whistle stop tour of the city that incorporates all the highlights.

If you’d prefer somewhere a little different, we can also visit areas outside of London during our layover tours. Why not explore Stonehenge? Learn about Royal history in Windsor? Or spend the day in the Cotswolds?

As taxi drivers, we can pick you up from anywhere – there are no set itineraries. Some common locations for pickups include:

  • All London airports (London City, Gatwick, Heathrow, Luton and Stansted).
  • Cruise ship ports (Southampton, Port of London, Tilbury, Felixstowe, Dover).
  • Bus and coach stations.

Personalised tours to fit your schedule. Get in touch so we can build a tour for you.

    Why choose a taxi tour?

    Most tours will run from central London starting points, meaning you’d have to get public transport there and back. During a stopover, this simply isn’t practical – it could easily take several hours to navigate the capital’s trains, tubes and buses. We take away the stress and save hours of your time by picking you up directly from your starting point. Our taxis have plenty of space for luggage, so you won’t have to pay to store it. A taxi tour is the ideal choice for anyone with limited time.

    Booking your tour

    Simply get in touch to arrange your layover tour. We can pick you up from a starting point of your choice, so we will discuss your itinerary based on this. If there are particular points of interest on your list, let us know – we shape your itinerary around you.
