Small Car Big City amazing tour of London!!

http://www.smallcarbigcity.com/



Just wanted to give my review on here since I had such a great time on this tour. It is currently #3 thing to do in London on tripadvisor. It really is a must do if you are going to visit London. 99/per Mini or 33 per person if you have 3 people. Next time I visit I would do the Italian Job where they run 3 minis through the city. You get a lot of thumbs up and waves from people on the street. The photos are at the end of the tour when he dropped us off.

We booked our one hour tour over the phone with Robert. I was a little unsure that 3 passengers would be able to fit comfortably in the car and see much, but I was completely wrong! First off, our tour guide Robert was very enthusiastic, knowledgeable, funny. This is the type of guide that will get you to laugh out loud many times during the tour as well as get you very interested in the history of the city. I'm amazed at his knowledge of the city as well as how great he navigates the car through traffic. This mini can go many places where tour busses cannot. I would highly suggest you make this the first thing you do when you come to London, you can follow up on foot and take more photos of things you found most interesting on the tour.

Robert was like having a best friend who moved away to London showing you the sites. I felt very comfortable and for myself and two others you can absolutely not beat the price. The cars are amazing and some of the secrets and jokes up his sleeve make the whole tour highly entertaining. It turns out he owns the company and has been going strong due to word of mouth for about a year now. It was the highlight during my time in London.

Can you give us an idea about pricing? Annoyingly, the website doesn't list prices -- I hate it when they do that!

Try this link. Their website lists that it's 10% off if you book on a Wednesday - Friday. It is more expensive than a bus tour but the quality IMO is 10 times that. They also picked up and dropped us off right next to our hotel.

The website lists St. James Park tube as the pick-up/drop-off point. Were you picked up elsewhere, or did your hotel happen to be at St. James Park?

I was staying at the Le Meridien Piccadilly. They suggested St. James Square Garden because they cannot stop directly at our hotel due to the flow of traffic. I'm guessing if they have the ability to pick you up at your hotel they will and if not they would probably pick you up close to your hotel.

If you check out my youtube video around the 3:30 mark there is a few minutes of the tour, you'll notice the Beatles music and the bells from the Abbey in the background. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JEjE9AlYXw
