Both my daughter and I had been to London previously and had seen all the major sites at that time. When I contacted Michael about the tour I mentioned that we'd like to see little known or different sites with some Harry Potter sites included. Michael was very conscientious about ensuring that our needs were met. He informs you if... More

First off, Michael I am so sorry for the nearly a year late review. Michael is excellent at his job from beginning to end. He will do the best to cater your tour to your interests. As a lawyer, I was dying to see the Old Bailey. Michael drove me there and even helped me look into places where I... More

My husband and I did the 4 hour tour and this was the perfect way to kick off our visit! Michael gives a fabulous overview, leaving us with not a better understanding of London, but an idea of places we want to spend more time and places we can skip. I highly recommend London Black Taxi Tours. Thanks for a... More

This is an absolute do not miss! The information and tour Michael provided was an experience like no other. This knowledge of London as well as the tour itself is amazing. Michael takes you to popular locations as well as unknown London spots- it is the best way to see the city. He is prompt, informative and will even custom... More

On the spur of the moment we booked this tour with Mark. Thank god we did. He showed us absolutely everything and made it so interesting. The next day we used HOHO the tape guide could not be understood. Only good for getting from here to there.

Hello chrisct. I am glad that you enjoyed your time in London but I believe you have posted your review on the wrong page. My name is Michael and not Mark as you have said in your review. More

We were blessed a while ago to find Michael on TripAdvisor and booked a tour with Michael for our 8 year old's birthday while we were in town. Both young and old enjoyed the tour and Michael went out of his way to make it special for both of our kids. We asked our 10 and 8 year old what... More

My mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our ride with Michael. He was very helpful and tailored our time to what worked best for us, i.e. more touring and less getting in and out of the cab, as my mother has mobility issues. He was a wealth of information and displayed a wonderful demeanor, despite dealing with London traffic! I highly... More

We took a 2 hour tour with Michael on our first full day in London. It was the perfect start to our trip. We got an overview of the city and where all the major attractions see located, along with history and insiders knowledge about what we were seeing. We booked months in advance and Michael was great about keeping... More

A perfect way to get your bearings in London, or if you are there for a quick visit, a great highlights tour. Michael is very helpful and has lots of stories to tell. He pays close attention to his passengers and when he learned we are fans of BBC shows and literary London, he was quick to point those sites... More

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.
