See London and its hidden treasures with a guide who knows London first...

See London and its hidden treasures with a guide who knows London first hand. I am a London licensed black taxi driver and qualified City of London as well as a Black Taxi Guide. There are many sightseeing tours to choose from on the website, including half day and All Day VIP Tours of London, tours to Oxford/Cambridge/Bath/Stonehenge/Windsor/Hampton Court as well as tours to our beautiful Essex, Suffolk and Kent villages. I also offer celebration tours and can arrange balloons/banners/champagne etc. My very latest London black taxi has full air-con, wheelchair access and can take up to 6 passengers comfortably. Please note, all prices quoted are for the tour and I can take up to 6 passengers.

We hired Adrian to give us a two hour private tour of London on our first day. We were picked up promptly at our hotel and driven to all the major sites. In several locations Adrian parked the taxi so we could get out and take a closer look and for pictures. Adrian was a wealth of information. We finished... More

It was exactly what we were looking for and what was promised. He took us anywhere we wanted to go. Always had nice bits of history and info about things. For the teens (ok and maybe me too), he knows a bunch about Harry Potter and can take you to places in the downtown area where the movies were filmedas... More

We booked a tour of London - concentrating on the City - as we had a very disabled relative with us who had wanted to see how that part of London had changed. However, the tour took in so many other places as well that we were all in awe of Adrian's knowledge and appetite for London's history;having travelled quite... More

My family and I took a tour of London in Adrian's taxi and it was really fantastic! It was a well thought through route so we were able to see a good variety and Adrian was really knowledgable about the sights and London generally. Adrian was also very personable and I really would recommend his tours of London.

We had a private tour with Adrian around London. He did a wonderful job integrating London's history and present. We loved listening to his historical tales and experiencing the traditions, such as the changing of the guard, first hand. Overall, we had a lovely time and we definitely recommend Adrian to anyone interested in touring London.

I had the most wonderful opportunity to be hosted on a tour of London by Adrian Rouse! My party consisted on my 21 year old daughter, my 57 year old wife, and my 82 year old mother-in-law -- Adrian charmed all three generations with his stories and behind-the-scenes history lessons!! Adrian was extremely knowledgeable of London history -- from pre-Roman... More

Our tour with Adrian was exactly what we were looking for. We're a family of five (kids ages 9-13) and everyone was engaged and entertained throughout the day. He really knows how to get in and out of sites very efficiently and we were able to see an incredible amount of the city in one day. Adrian has a ton... More

We are so glad we took Adrians London Tour. Having been to London 7 times, we wanted to see a different London. Adrian took us to places we didn't know existed and not the usual touristy sights. Adrians knowledge about different places is outstanding. From the cemeteries to markets, he is a fountain of information. One of the stops that... More

Staying in Trafalgar Square / Embankment

Trafalgar Square / Embankment
With its iconic Nelson’s Column, majestic oversized lions and brightly-lit fountains, Trafalgar Square is not just considered the heart of this bustling London hub, but the very core of the city itself. Beyond this esteemed gathering place are more famous icons, as well as a disproportionate numbers of the city’s most popular cultural attractions including the National Gallery and many West End theaters. Along the way to these major sites are quiet lanes and antiquated pubs to discover, as well as riverside vistas to enjoy on the embankment. With a calendar full of celebratory events, any time of year is a fine time to visit.
