“We had a fantastic short tour with Frank (as we were on a tight schedule), he was very knowledgeable, interesting and made the tour great fun. Next time we go to London, we will definitely contact him for another one and will fully recommend him to our friends.
Thanks Frank for a brilliant tour.”

“We booked this trip for 7 of us as a day trip to sightsee London for the day.  We did not know what to expect but once we met Ray at the airport, we knew it would be a great time, despite the rain!!!  Ray gave us the full history of England and drove us throughout the city!  Ray was very knowledgeable and explained the history in detail.  I would highly recommend this tour!”

“Great service and a good time”

Both my wife and I had not been to London in several years and so we wanted to take a “refresher” tour. Ray was great, making the day both enjoyable and interesting. We would highly recommend.

“Best vacation ever!!!”

We were a family of six , with 2 teenagers. We had the best time, and made the best of our trip by booking 3 private tours. Everything we booked went smoothly. Thanks to Ray for the most informative tours, and to Paul for the Rock and Roll Tour.  The only way to see London is on a private tour, and they are the best.

“Superb way to get an overview of London sites & history”

This was our first visit to London and it proved to be the perfect way to get indoctrinated into the history, stories and sites of London. Our driver Tim Brosnan was superb – story teller, engaging, knowledgeable and he even brought us some British hard candy to enjoy on the ride. If you haven’t experienced London’s unique Black Cab, it’s the only way to go. While I’m an Uber and Lyft user in the USA, there’s zero reason to use them in London as here there are legitimate Taxi professionals – unlike anything we’ve seen in other countries.

I could see the tours being enjoyed by people who have visited London on many occasions and who would like to hear the stories behind London’s famous (and also lesser known) sites. Tim and his team will customize the experience based on the number of hours you have and what you’re interested in. There were a couple times when my wife and I explored an area on our own and then got picked up to continue our journey.

Could not have been a more pleasant way to being our London experience!

“Amazing Beatle tour and more!!!!”

My husband, son and I have just completed our Beatlemania tour with Steve our guide. From the prompt pick up at our hotel to the timely drop off; we had an amazing and memorable time. Steve was amiable, knowledgeable and had great rapport with our 9 y/o son. We loved the private car ride and the guided walkabout in the city. It was the perfect tour on a stunning sunny day in London. Highly recommend Steve to any and all looking for a thorough and proper London experience!!!

“Highly recommend this tour with Tim”

We had the most wonderful time with our driver, Tim, who gave us a history tour of London. He was very knowledgeable, helpful, quite funny and clever, and one of the friendliest guys we’ve met. We saw millions of things, some quite obscure, and heard wonderful stories about them all. He was also a safe driver. Tim helped us understand London better and made us feel so comfortable and welcome. We can’t recommend this highly enough.

“London 4 Hour Tour”

Wow is all I can say about our tour. Ed Tucker was our guide and he was great. Very knowledgeable and knew the city very well. The 4 hours went by so quick and we have lots of great pics… highly recommended Black Taxi Tours London- ask for Ed Tucker to be your guide, you won’t be disappointed.

Rachel’s passion and enthusiasm for her native city was evident during a London history tour. Her knowledge of London history – social and political, was impressive.  She has a fun loving and exuberant personality.  She took us to places of interest that are off the tourist track, and a couple of great pubs also.  We would very highly recommend her tours!


We had an opportunity to utilize Rachel for a tour of London and Greenwich. We were interested in a tour, that was off the beaten path, and not your classic London tour. Her knowledge of the area is unparalleled, steeped in culture, and rich in history.   She asked us a few simple questions of our interests, and created a unique and special tour for us. Knowing my wife had an interest in sailing, interwoven into our tour, we stopped by the Mayflower, went to the Maritime Museum, and saw Greenwich meantime.  After a brief discussion about Art, Rachel purchased tickets for us to see the Thornhill painted hall ceiling tour at the old Royal navel college. She saved it for last, and it was the highlight of our day.  Her families 250 year history in London allowed Rachel to take to us communities we never would have experienced on our own. In addition, she gave us many tips and recommendations which enhanced our visit to London and the surrounding area.  We found her to be charming, witty, colorful, and a total joy to be with. Your trip to London, would be immeasurably enhanced with a tour with Rachel.

I booked this tour as a birthday present for my 77 year old mum, I had explained to Rachel our tour guide, that our family have lived in Deptford and Bermondsey for generations.

As well as the expected tour of London land marks, Rachel included Greenwich, Deptford and Bermondsey, this really made us feel that the tour was really made to measure for us, and given that Rachel is a real cockney, it made the whole tour feel authentic.

We had a few chances to get out of the taxi and were shown roman ruins and other sights that we would never have found without Rachel’s expert guidance, we all had a really fun and informative time, top marks to Rachel, a lovely day out 10 out of 10.

Visited August 2017

I got in contact with Rachel in hope that she could create a unique London tour for just me and my wife to celebrate her birthday. Rachel not only did that but also created an incredible day that we won’t soon forget.  Rachel managed to combine a home pick up, a picnic and a tour that took in Roman, Tudor, Victorian and modern London history, Architecture and Harry Potter all in the space of a few hours. Rachel even booked us in our evening meal. The care and attention to detail was second to none. I highly recommend one of Rachel’s regular tours. But I would also urge you to work with Rachel to create your own unique day. As I know Rachel will come up with something special for you.
