Quirky, unique, fun, so cool !!!
Oct 2021
I've lived in London in the past and visited loads of times - basically I've seen it, done it, bought the t-shirt. So on this break to London, I decided to do something different, a 4 hour tour of London in a Mini Cooper. To get ourselves in the zone, we watched the film The Italian Job beforehand. And it worked, because on the day, my little lad was so excited to see our Mini Cooper! And wow, what a fabulous time we had! Tom, our driver and guide, was a gentleman and such fun. He took us to places that we've never been to before and his stories were so interesting. I did wonder if 4 hours would be too long, but it just flew by! You get such a buzz when heads are turning enviously to look at your little car as you whizz by. Whenever we parked up, people were milling around our Mini, admiringly - and it was ours, well for 4 hours anyway!!! It was the highlight of our week in London. Can't wait for our next visit - we're gonna do the gin and the night tour! Thanks Tom.

A whole new perspective on London
Oct 2021 • Couples
We’ve both been frequent visitors to London for years, for work and play, so we expected to at least be able to keep up with and perhaps even test our tour guides knowledge…but almost everything we were told we were hearing - and in a lot of cases, seeing - for the first time. Our guide was so knowledgable and the little-known facts and hidden spots made for so many ‘really, wow’ moments he must have thought we were capable of saying little else! We went out in red Robin - she is an absolute beauty - and watching people’s faces light up and wave at her as we went past just made the experience even better. The car was in immaculate condition and surprisingly spacious in the back. It was perfect for nipping down the back streets to find those lesser known spots and was such a big part of the experience for us. We would highly recommend it, even to those of you who think you’ve seen all London has to offer, seeing it from the Small Car Big City perspective will make you think again. A massive thank you to Rob for arranging such a memorable day for us!

An experience delivered with real heart
Sep 2021 • Friends
Had the best morning riding around London in a (surprisingly roomy) mini Cooper. Our host, Rob, was enthusiastic and had a wealth of knowledge and there was something really special about driving around London in such an iconic car. I cannot recommend this enough if you're looking for a unique authentic experience that is delivered with true passion and care.

Great way to beat the lockdown blues
Jan 2021 • Couples
What a way to beat the lockdown blues! We hired a classic mini for half a day and took it for a spin around Surrey. Best fun we’ve had in ages. Tony was extremely accommodating and ensured we had all we needed before we headed off solo. Highly recommended!

Amazing way to see London.
If you are wanting to see all the London highlights in a condensed tour which has both the fun and wow factor then this is the tour to do. We had a group of 5 so had Joshua and Stevie as our drivers and they were both amazing. Their humour, knowledge and driving skills....legendary! We had an amazing day from driving around London seeing all the sights like Buckingham palace, to Leake St arches, to a stop at the pub and arriving right out front of the Borough Markets on a Saturday arvo it certainly was an incredible four hours. Thanks guys for a truly special day out.

Must do tour when in London!!!
Dec 2019
We did it twice and have sent many friend for it. And we loved it again. The cars are amazing and the tour takes you out of the touristic spots to hidden london gems. Note: we live in london!

Everyone loves the car. You’ll be part of the attraction. And the drivers have so many quirky stories and location. You’ll see a different side of this amazing city!
