Michael's London Black Taxi Tour was a great way for our family of four to get oriented on our first full day in London. From start to finish, the process couldn't be easier scheduling our half day tour. The initial emails were exchanged promptly and were extremely informative. The tour itself was very interesting, fun and can be customized according... More

My family was the first time in London. Therefore I organized this unique sightseeing tour with Michael. Already the conversation during the booking process was very kind and professional. Michael picked us up at our hotel and showed us a big number of fantastic places in London. The fabulous stories he could share with us we would never find in... More

From our first email contact with Michael to his dropping us off at a great pub, this was a first-rate, fast paced experience. We arrived in London on a Friday afternoon and Michael picked us up at our hotel as promised at 9:00 Saturday morning. Based upon our stated desires and taking into account London's ever changing and challenging road... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with London Black Taxi Tours! Mr. Churchill (the tour operator's name!) is knowledgeable, engaging, and professional. I scheduled a half-day tour for my husband, son, and me for our first full day in London and it provided a good visual overview and orientation. Traffic is extremely heavy and he is able to navigate the city... More

The email with him is quick and easy to understand. If you are in London for a few days or just 2 days like myself, PLEASE book with Michael first. He is an excellent story teller, historian, and tour guide. He gives you the historical stories, current events and pop culture on all aspects of our tour. He has done... More

Because of the great reviews we had pretty high expectations and I'm happy to say Michael exceeded them! Everything from the initial email communication months before our trip to the after trip follow up were top notch. He arrived slightly early to let us know if we were ready we could start but made sure to let us know there... More

Michael is an excellent tour guide. He was punctual when he picked us up from our hotel this morning and we had a terrific four hours riding around in his pristine black cab seeing all over London, including many non touristy things that only a true local would know about. He has an incredible knowledge and so much information just... More

Michael was a wonderful guide to London. First, he was very responsive to my emails and accommodating to the attractions I wanted to see. Punctual and provided background info not really covered in the guide books such as Twinings Tea Company, London fire, etc. Taxi tour is good alternative to the Big Bus tour as Michael takes you to exactly...

We did a four tour with Michael this morning couldn't have asked for anything better. We had to improvise with many street closing but he did a fantastic job of getting us around to famous sites and the interesting historical spots we would have never found or knew existed. A true wealth of knowledge on London.

I contacted Michael about booking a tour with him and information on what all could be included. Unfortunately he was already booked but he gave me so much valuable information, tips on who else to contact, etc. He is wonderful! If you can book with him, you should.

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
