The best way to see London is from an iconic London Black Cab. Add to this a qualified driver/guide and you have the full package. London Cabbies face one of the strictest and toughest examination processes known colloquially as The Knowledge. It can take up to 3 years for them to learn every road, street, lane, alley, bar, restaurant, statue, apartment block, Police Station, hotel, church, government building, train station, literally anywhere a paying customer would wish to be taken. They also need to know the quickest route. On top of all that your driver is also a qualified guide having completed a written and oral exam through the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers. You will travel from west to east and get to feast on all the history, heritage and culture this vibrant city has to offer.
