Healthy Travel. Safe Touring.
Graham at London Cab Tours is very aware that tourism, guiding and visiting attractions has changed in 2020.
- The very nature of the tours that Graham provides are well suited to the new realities and requirements of touring and vacationing.
- All tours provided by London Cab Tours are private London tours and private tours outside London.
- Graham is an accredited private London tour guide and driver guide – see footer and photos below for certificates and accreditation and ‘About: Our Company‘.
- My vehicle is a Mercedes Vito London taxi. London taxis carry up to six passengers – an excellent way to enjoy private London tours for families or groups up to six.
- The Mercedes Vito taxi, like all London taxis, is partitioned. There is a clear perspex divide between the driver’s compartment and the passenger area. An intercom enables 2-way conversation and full commentary during the driver-guided section of a tour.
- All London taxis are wheelchair accessible – with a ramp, steps and secure handles. Excellent for wheelchair accessible tours and day trips for wheelchair users.
- Although hop on hop off London tours by bus are popular, this is not the kind of tour of London that London Cab Tours provides. Of primary importance, taxis have built-in social distancing.
- London taxis are also allowed to use the bus lanes, which enables efficient travel through London’s streets. There are places where buses aren’t allowed to go, or are too big to go, where London taxis can.
- Most of Graham’s tours do involve some walking and the amount of walking varies from tour to tour.
- The healthy environment of every tour is of primary importance and this extends to all of the indoor attractions that are part of some tours. Good practice in terms of social distancing and numbers are now part of the admission policy for all attractions – this applies to those with free and paid admission.
