Black Cab Heritage Tours

I have been driving an iconic London Taxi since March 2008. Passing the Knowledge of London is one of my greatest achievements in life and I’m so PROUD to be part of London’s Finest. London Taxi Drivers have been voted the Best in the world on numerous occasions. I decided to study the Cab Guide Course in September 2008, 6 months after getting my badge. This introduced me to the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, the City of London’s 104th Livery company. It also introduced me to the Co Founders of Black Cab Heritage Tours as we were all in the same group. I became involved in the Livery company and have attended most of their dinner functions since I was awarded my Cab Guide Certificate in November 2008. I have been a Freeman of the company since May 2009 and a Liveryman since September 2010. I have also been involved (since 2011) with the Company’s “Magical Taxi Tour”. This is where around 100 London Taxi drivers take seriously and terminally ill Children from various London hospitals, such as the Royal London, Great Ormond Street and the Royal Marsden to Disneyland, Paris for the weekend of a lifetime. This gives them and their families a well deserved break from the normal routine of treatment etc. The company through its various works of charity such as the Magical Taxi Tour, associations with the Docklands School and 20th Squadron, The Royal Logistics Corps and running the Cab Guide course seeks to promote the London Taxi trade in the best way possible.

I enjoy taking customers around London on the Classic tour that BCHT offers. It’s wonderful to show visitors the historic London sites like Buckingham Palace and the Tower of London. They get to see these wonderful sites and all in the iconic London Taxi. I’m willing to go further afield such as Oxford as well. I also regularly work at Heathrow Airport so I am happy to do airport transfers to and from London and other airports. In addition I’m willing to provide tours for those with special needs such as wheelchair users.

I enjoy meeting people from all walks of life and would be more than happy to show you around our Wonderful city.
