We were signed up for an evening tour of London but we're delayed on arrival. Our driver Gavin was very accommodating and responded very quickly when I notified him of this. We got our entire 3 hour tour which was wonderful! Gavin is engaging, accommodating, knowledgeable, and a lot of fun. We enjoyed our tour immensely and give this tour and Gavin my highest recommendation.

Great way to do a Harry Potter tour. You get personal attention and some London history mixed in there. TIP: the cab comes equipped with a ceiling speaker. If you can't hear your driver well you can ask them to turn up the volume. I didn't realize that until partway through the tour.

It was amazing. Our driver/guide was kind, friendly, informed and informative. He asked about our special requests and fulfilled them. We saw and heard about the hidden treasures of London that you do not see on a usual sightseeing tour. Highly recommended!

Taxi driver very motivated very friendly very well documented and particularly ingenious in adapting to external events in this case the demonstrations due to the appointment of the new Prime Minister Perfect day which was not the same for other Visits

We thoroughly enjoyed the Harry Potter taxi tour. Our driver was very knowledgable and friendly.
