Since passing the Knowledge of London to become a licensed London Taxi driver, I have also qualified as City of London guide and a London cab Guide. I am also a member of the City of London Guide Lecturers Association.
I am an active member of the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers. This includes participating in the drive to Euro Disney along with around 100 taxi drivers, the police, ambulance, and paramedics along with support staff. For a once in a life time trip for children with severe medical conditions and life threatening conditions. One of my roles within the Company is to be part of the education committee and this includes instructing fellow cab drivers to become guides. I am also a keen supporter of Help for Heroes and English Heritage.
My tours in London start with the highlight or classic tour, showing the main tourist sites and places of interest for our many visitors to London. But saying that I can also offer tours including Harry Potter, Jack the Ripper including the old East end, Greenwich , The London docks, Film locations and then there’s Roman, Medieval and London as the financial district.
As a Black Cab Heritage Guide I also take tours to: Canterbury, Rochester and the Medway Towns (Charles Dickens), Dover and the Cinque ports of Kent. I can also include tours of Windsor, Stonehenge, Oxford and Bath.

  • We had an absolutely amazing afternoon. Dave is fantastic! The tour exceeded my expectations by far! I’ve worked in London for 20 years and was shown so much that I didn’t even know that’s on my work doorstep!! I would happily hire Dave again and without a doubt recommend him to anyone, thank you for arranging this for us.

  • I booked a Heathrow pick-up and 3 hour tour package and Dave was our guide and driver extraordinaire. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our experience, from seeing nearly every neighbourhood to the palaces (even had the Royal Guard parade within a few feet of our car as they headed back to the barracks), seeing the ruins of the Roman Coliseum, reviewing in detail the many statues and history of the guild, and I could go on for many more sentences. Dave was wonderful in every way, and I recommend both Black Cab Heritage and Dave to two friends who will be traveling to London in the coming weeks. Well done gentlemen!

  • Please let Dave know what a great time we had on the tour with him. Compared with the way things went for us in Paris your London tour was more in-tune with what we were looking for! High fives to you and to David for such a great time, until the next time, God Save the Queen!

  • Thanks for the tour, what a fantastic start to our latest London adventure. Thank you so much!

  • Had a great 2.5 hour tour of the most significant sights. Our driver, Dave, was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable, giving us historical background on everything we saw, and able to answer all of our questions. As a wheelchair user, I found the experience very convenient; the cab was very easy to get my chair in and out of, and Dave was very helpful. I highly recommend the experience.

  • Thanks for arranging our tour with Dave and getting us to the Abbey Road crossing, it was fantastic!
