Michael is a true gentleman.He picks you up wearing formal taxi wear. His cab is clean, comfortable, and air conditioned. He plans you tour to minimize being stuck in traffic. Our tour was on a Saturday, when traffic is less congested. He is extremely informative, polite, and friendly. He can customize if there are certain things you want to see. You can have him stop so you can get out as you wish. He shows you things you will want to come back to later in your visit when you have more time. Instead of seeing the Changing of the Guard at the Palace where it is very crowded, he recommended watching the troops exit their barracks and start their parade formation, We did that, it was great, and there was no crowd.I recommend Michael's tour very highly.

If you are short on time and need a half day tour this is the best use of your time and money. Michael is a complete gentleman who picked us up at our hotel and gave a very informative tour of London. He took us places the buses don't go and gave us recommendations for the rest of our stay.

Michael is a great tour guide. He shows you so much more than you would see with any of the other tours. You get to see many more out of the way places and sites.

Michael was simply fantastic. We only had a few hours in London, and wanted to get the most out of them so we hired Michael for the four hour tour. Michael was knowledge, and entertaining as can be. We are still talking about this tour four weeks later. Coming to a new city and not knowing anyone, Michael made us feel like old friends. Cannot have asked for a better tour.

I would start this tour my first day in London. You will see all of the popular places and some unknown places. Our driver gave us great advice about the sites!!!

This was extremely helpful in determining what we wanted to do while in London. We added sites and removed sites from our original plan.

The driver is extremely knowledgeable. He gave us advice to watch the changing of the guards, which was great. My mom has been to London many times. She had no idea about his advice. She loved it.

The driver speaks really fast to get all of the information you will need. I would recommend you bring a tourist map so you can write all over it, or a notepad to take notes.

I would highly recommend this tour with a map!
