Accessible Tours Information

Information On Every Tour - For Wheelchair/Disability Access

Tours are usually a mixture of driving and walking. My taxi is the vehicle we use for driving around, but getting out of the taxi and walking short to medium distances is often integral to the tour content.

There are places in central London where only taxis can park and these spaces are used by us to get as close to the walking area as possible. When touring beyond London there are car parks near to our tour routes.

Please read these short notes to see if my tours provide the wheelchair accessible trips you will be happy with:

London Highlights Tour x 3 hours: This is a three hour tour that focuses on Westminster and royal London. Short walks/rolls are usually part of the tour. However, this tour can also be a driving-only tour, where getting out of the taxi isn’t required. There are always stops on a driving-only tour for photos, commentary etc. Changing of the Guard, if it’s part of the tour, requires the longest walking/rolling time.

Need to know: No hills, dropped kerbs, accessible bathrooms, coffee shops.

London Highlights + More Tour x 5 hours: There will be walking/rolling on this tour. We’ll be driving from location to location in the taxi and then getting out and doing mini-walks. Although walks can be of varying length they can be adapted/shortened if walking for long is not possible. Changing of the Guard, if it’s part of the tour, requires the longest walking/rolling time.

Need to know: No hills, dropped kerbs, accessible bathrooms, coffee shops. 

London Big Day Out x 7 hours: There will be walking/rolling on this tour. We’ll be driving from location to location in the taxi and then getting out and doing mini-walks and perhaps medium walks. Although walks can be of varying length they can be adapted/shortened if walking for long is not possible. Changing of the Guard, if it’s part of the tour, requires the longest walking/rolling time.
