Free Tours By Foot has teamed up with one of London's iconic black cab drivers to help deliver you an experience you won't get in any other city on earth!

Take in all that London has to offer in the comfort of a classic London black cab, led by your very own licensed driver and guide. This is a great option for people who want to explore the city, but can't necessarily do it all by foot. Your guide will meet you at a pre-arranged pickup point and take you through the streets of the city, telling you stories and sharing facts (as well as a few jokes!) you as you go. You'll see well known London landmarks, hidden gems, and everything in between. Pick up is available at most central London hotels and we can drop you off at a destination of your choice!

We've got a wide range of options to choose from, which you can see below. We can also arrange customised tours, as well as airport pick-ups and drop-offs, either with a tour included or just simply as a journey. Each taxi seats up to five passengers for the same fixed price.
