Black Cab Heritage Tours

About Black Cab Heritage Tours

Back in 2008, three friends (Rob, Dave & Josh) got together for a pint and they started discussing what they realised was missing for travellers visiting the city of London.

Tourists lined up in droves on double-decker hop-on-hop-off services or big tour coaches passing through the streets of London, hitting landmarks in a flurry, hearing only small soundbites of history in-between every stop, and sharing their tour guide’s attention with 50 other passengers.

Smaller, private car companies also delivered a check-the-box service of must-sees in London but with very limited service, and you could see those vehicles backed up on the Tower Bridge in gridlock each day.

This group of friends wondered if the travellers didn’t know that they were missing out on learning about London’s rich history and discovering its many hidden gems in an efficient and fun way.

One thing they all agreed on was that:

The best tours in London don’t just visit the landmarks and points of interest, they bring the city to life through the stories, and the characters who tell them.
That’s when they decided to create a tour business that combined the best of London, its vibrant culture and its people providing high-quality experiences.

Alas, Black Cab Heritage Tours was Born.

Fifteen years after the sharing of a pint, Black Cab Heritage Tours joined forces with Travel Curious in April of 2023. Together with Travel Curious, we can bring you even more of London’s rich history with our private black cab tours.
