What To Expect

Greet your private driver at your central London hotel, and then hop inside the back of a classic black cab. Relax into the taxi’s cushioned seats and gaze out of the window as you travel down streets lined with twinkling Christmas decorations.

Cruise through areas like Mayfair, Chelsea, Belgravia, and Kensington, whose upmarket boutiques boast some of the capital’s most iconic annual Christmas window displays, and pass top London attractions including the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, and the Tower of London.

Continue to Regent Street and Oxford Street, and hop out of the cab to soak up the festive atmosphere and get an up-close look at the shop windows and lights. Your tour will then conclude either back at your hotel or at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park, where you can ice skate, try out the rides and sip mulled wine (all at own expense)—it’s up to you.

Lovely tour!!
Lina_T, Jan 2023
We all loved the cab tour, our driver David was welcoming, informative and made the tour a lovely experience! We saw parts of the city we wouldn’t have seen otherwise in 2.5 hours, especially on a rainy day!
Great tour with a knowledgeable guide

We had an amazing night touring the holiday lights of London with a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. Gordon made sure to answer all of our questions and took us to all the best photo opportunities in the city. He even took multiple group pictures for us. It was a wonderful and enchanting evening with a gracious and personable host!
Best Tour in London!
Thomas_M, Dec 2022
Stella was AWESOME! She picked us up near Covent Gardens and traffic was terrible due to the holidays. She navigated out of it, down some.side streets and took us to some amazing lights where we got out and walked around. She took tons of photos of our family and was a true delight! It was our first night in London and we had a blast! We marked several locations in Google Maps and went back the next day during the day to check them out. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour!

Great Christmas Tour
Kevin_C, Dec 2022
We had a wonderful time. Greg was very knowledgeable, extremely nice, and very accommodating. He unexpectedly stopped several times for brief walking tours of various areas of London and knew so much about everything. Not only fun, but learned quite a bit. This was a good 2 1/2 hours and well worth it. Thank you, Greg.

Marilyn_W, Dec 2021
Great tour with an excellent driver who entertained us with many facts and stories. It was a bit pricey as there was only 2 of us, however, if you had 5 people it only works out £50 each. Having said That, we still thought it was worth the cost. Picks you up from your central hotel and takes you back to where you want to go. Highly recommended
David for the win!
Pablo_R, Dec 2021
Our tour guide David was fantastic. He is a living encyclopedia of London. Thanks to him our tour of the Christmas lights was a memorable one. My partner and my in-laws were delighted. Can’t recommend doing this tour with David enough!
