This is an opportunity not to be missed! I cannot think of a better way to see London.

Michael is an affable walking-talking encyclopedia of knowledge and anecdote - all delivered with friendly spontaneity and joviality.

You will need to go a long, long way to better such an experience and opportunity.

He has a refreshing and unassuming manner which belies his bredth of experience and enthusiam. He is flexible and able to adapt to respond to particular interests or to focus on specific localities. Michael quickly establishes a convivial rapport with Groups and arranges convenient "stop-offs" for visitors to "stretch one's legs" to make their own mini explorations and discoveries.

Although my trip was within an adult party, I am confident that he could equally captivate the interests of youngsters as well.

Should you think to hesitate - do so no more. As the Nike dictum has it "Just do it". Again, as a well known company proclaims - "Yoy can be sure of it - I've put my name to it!"

We had the opportunity to tour London with Michael Churchill in a London Black Taxi. Michael was on time, waiting for us at London Paddington. It was quite clear from the start that Michael possessed a lot of expereince conducting tours of London and spent time initially understanding our requirements.

He ensured that we visited all the key sites: Marble Arch, Buckingham Palace, Westminister Abbey, House of Parliment, Piccadilly Circus, London Bridge etc. etc. Many other attractions that nomally get passed over were also covered, which helped us connect with the City far better. The very fact that we had a convenience of a taxi and an expereinced guide in Michael helped us cover far more of the City than we could have through other means. Michael had laminated attraction guides that he handed over for our review, and also ensured that we understoood the attraction in context by playing specifc audio clips on his IPad.

The privacy and convenience of a taxi, the positive attitude and expereince of Michael, and the multitude of sights in London made for a great day for us at London - Thanks, Michael for a brilliant introduction to this great city.

My husband and I had 1 day in London before embarking on a cruise. Wanting to see as much as we could within a short window of time, we elected to search for a tour guide. Searching on the internet, we found London Black Taxi Tours. We contacted them and very promptly heard back from Michael. Once we arrived in London, made it to our hotel and checked in, we were ready to go on our tour. We contacted Michael on his cell phone and he promptly came to the hotel to meet us, our names displayed in his window so he was not hard to miss.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of London and would recommend this tour to everyone. Michael is well-informed, pleasant and proud of London. He has thought of everything and is well prepared. We were relaxed and did not feel rushed at all.
