Full description
Drive along the streets of London on board one of the city’s iconic black cabs, and get a great narration of the history from your guide. They will not only be a registered taxi driver - who have to sit the toughest taxi exam in the world - but will also be a registered Blue Badge, City of London, or City of Westminster Guide, with exceptional knowledge of London’s attractions. Following a pick-up from any central London (zone 1) hotel, set off and stop at each landmark for photographs and a historical explanation. Take in the massive medieval fortress of the Tower of London, and the fairytale splendor of Tower Bridge. Drive through Trafalgar Square, passing St James's Palace, Westminster Abbey, and Westminster Cathedral. Stop outside the Queen’s official residence at Buckingham Palace. See St. Paul's Cathedral, Covent Garden, the Houses of Parliament, and much more. No London tour is complete without a pub lunch, and you’ll take yours on the banks of the River Thames in a 300-year-old establishment. Back on the road, continue your family-friendly adventure to some of London’s more hidden attractions, including lost graveyards, Roman Temples, and unusual statues. Walk on a Roman pavement of mosaics, see Winston Churchill’s cigar chair, an original gas lamp, and more.

Gordon was extremely knowledgeable and had many facts. I felt we were able to see all of the highlights of London we wanted to see. Gordon tailored the tour to meet our interests and took us to a couple non traditional spots we didn’t expect to see. He was willing to take many photos of us. It was a great tour!!!
