What You Can Expect

Arriving in a typical London black taxi, your private driver will collect you from your central London hotel, and then you’ll be on your way. Relaxing in the black cab’s comfortable seats, sit back and watch the festive lights of London pass by as your friendly driver tells you all you need to know about Christmas in this great city.

Your 2.5-hour tour takes in several London neighborhoods, each with their own character and charm. Pass through the upmarket boroughs of Chelsea, Kensington, Mayfair and Belgravia, and see their glossy shops boasting tantalizing Christmas window displays. Each area has its own Christmas light display, and you’ll stop at each to walk around and see them up close while your driver tells you about the history of these much-loved traditions.

In central London, visit several key city attractions. Drive past Westminster, home to the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, and see the London Eye, Tower of London and London Bridge, all beautifully illuminated with a warm wintery glow.

Continue to the shopping haunts of Regent Street and Oxford Street, where you’ll see the most impressive Christmas light displays in London! Take a walk around these fashionable high streets, packed with Christmas shoppers and twinkling lights – perfect for a nighttime photo op!

Your tour will either finish back at your hotel or at one of London’s popular Christmas markets – the choice is yours! Perhaps end at the Hyde Park Winter Wonderland – the largest Christmas attraction in London, featuring an outdoor ice rink, Christmas market, fun-fair and more. Entry is at your own expense, but it’s a great way to end your evening – strolling around with a mulled wine or visiting Santa’s grotto.

This was one of my favorite tours. The lights were very pretty, of course, but our guide whose name I think was Colin was so good. He took us to some out of the way places and was an excellent guide. He knew a lot about the history of some of the various stops. Highly recommend this tour.

Our driver arrived on time, was a delight to work with and we were pleasantly surprised by the history of England, London, and various neighborhoods! So it was more than just looking at lights! He was most knowledgeable and gave us a great tour! The time went fast, and he added to the tour to personalize it some for my husband, once he found out he was retired military! I would highly recommend this tour, and Andrew as your driver!

Steve delivered! He enthusiastically and energetically took us to the highlights of the city's holiday lights- and made sure he photographed us at all the stops! He was a super guide, knew all the streets and skillfully parked near the lights so we never had more than a few steps to cross the street. The streets were absolutely packed with holiday traffic- pedestrian and vehicle- and Steve maneuvered adeptly and safely. He was prompt, cheerful and made us feel like we were very special guests! A great evening- lights and sights we'd never seen before! We had an early 4pm departure, but dark already. We were picked up at our zone 1 restaurant and dropped at our hotel, after a final photo of me in the driver's seat of the black cab!
