Andy was an incredible tour guide! We saw so much and he was so knowledgeable! Great way to see London! Highly recommend!!!!

The whole experience was amazing. From the minute of enquiry on the web, to the event. Great communication and everything went really smoothly. Chris was a wonderful driver and guide. He was excellent at pointing out the various little points of interest, and we got a real view of London that people rarely see. Postman's Park was a little gem. I was worried about steps and walking for my (elderly) mother, but that was not a problem at all. Chris even personalised the tour (at our request) to include Battersea where my father had a garage in the 70's. Cab was clean and fresh, and the glass roof gave a fantastic perspective. Could not have been more pleased with the day. Happy to rave about it to anyone who will listen.
