  • Instant Confirmation
  • Private Tour
  • 4 hr

Discover not only iconic London attractions, but hidden gems too, all from the back seat of a London cab - taking the routes that stereotypical tour buses can't.

Itinerary Details

Enjoy a panoramic sightseeing trip of London in the quintessentially British black cab, with running commentary from an expert guide. Discover the real London – from a well-informed cabbie who knows London like the back of his hand, with many hidden secrets for you to discover! 

Your guide will meet and greet you at your central London hotel (or preferred pickup location) and at the conclusion of your 4-hour tour, you can be returned to your hotel or any central location of your choice. 

  • Begin your tour by being whisked away from the Bankside Hotel in your iconic black cab
  • Stop at several quintessential London must-sees, including Buckingham Palace and St James' Palace
  • Hop back in for an easy drive to Westminster Abbey and Parliament
  • Drive alongside the Thames to the Tower of London, where true stories seem more like fiction than fact!
  • Stop for a coffee or tea along the way, if you need a pick-me-up
On our 'Premier Classic Tour of London' your guide will stop at a minimum of 6 popular locations to tell you about the fascinating history of these iconic attractions. This is less of a whistle-stop tour than most of the London highlights tours, and invites you to slow down, while those around you hop on and off of buses without enough time to truly appreciate the layers of history and wild stories that surround so many London icons. There will be plenty of opportunities throughout your tour to take those treasured photos – and if you want to take time out, your London guide knows all the best places to grab a coffee.
