I am an active member of the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers and am proud to have been Master in 2017/2018 - a very prestigious position to hold in the City of London. One of my roles within the Company is to be part of the education committee and this includes instructing fellow Taxi Drivers to become guides.
Accredited London Tour Guide
Since passing the Knowledge of London to become a licensed London Taxi driver, I have also qualified as a City of London Guide and a London Cab Guide and am a current member of the City of London Guides and Lecturers Association.
Every year I participate in the drive to Euro Disney along with around 100 taxi drivers, the police, ambulance service and paramedics together with other support staff for a once-in-a-lifetime trip for children with severe and life threatening medical conditions. I am also a keen supporter of the charities Help for Heroes and English Heritage.
My tours in London start with the Highlights or Classic Tour, showing the main tourist sites and places of interest. I can also offer tours including Harry Potter, Jack the Ripper (including the old East End), Greenwich, the London Docks, Movie Locations, the Tudor Dynasty up to the Civil War "the original Game of Thrones” and then there’s Roman Medieval and London as the Financial District.
Further afield, I take tours to Canterbury, Rochester and the Medway Towns (Charles Dickens), Dover (Battle of Britain) and the Cinque ports of Kent (Kent’s Darkest Hours). I can also offer day excursions to Windsor, Stonehenge, Oxford, Bath, Leeds and Hever Castles and Chartwell House (once the home of Sir Winston Churchill).
Tours are for up to 6 passengers in my brand new Electric London Black Cab with its panoramic roof, perfect for sightseeing. On longer excursions, for increased client comfort, I will take you in a Mercedes Vito taxi.
