This was an incredible experience, our driver Chris was the perfect guide and driver. We loved DOT, and will be coming back next June to do another tour. Make sure that you book this tour, they are the best and really excellent value for money. The only way to see London!
Amazing activity!! We had so much great time with the team visiting places from London not very well-known. Chris was our driver and Lulu our beautiful blue tiffany color mini cooper <3 Chris made our visit an amazing experience telling us beautiful and interesting stories about London. My favorite one was the wrong spelling of Convent Garden. He was really nice and has the best playlist ever! Thank you so much...
Booked Classic Mini Tour as a gift for hubby's birthday. We both love Mini Classic cars so this was the perfect tour of London for us. Chris our driver was very informative about London's history. Chris made the tour fun & interesting. We had a good laugh with him too ! We would highly recommend you taking this tour. We would definitely like to do tour again on a return to London. Many thanks
Great fun ! Highly recommend this tour! Our driver Chris was excellent. A great way to see the city & some spots you might not find without a local.
So much fun! Our group of six adults, ages 30-80, had a wonderful time in three Minis. Chris was a fantastic leader - we saw the sites, learned some history, got some great tips for our stay, laughed, and felt like rock stars as people were photographing us driving by. Definitely a fun way to spend the day! We all highly recommend this unique, high energy tour!!
Top class experience and very flexible service. We were delayed due to flight issues, this was not a problem, the drivers welcomed us for our 2 car tour, both groups were impressed by their drivers knowledge and sense of fun. The two hours flew by and even ran on with no extra costs, very generous! So good that I will do this again. Well done all.
Thomas was informative and entertaining. It was exciting maneuvering the streets in our cool car. We were the envy of those around us.
Highly recommend! A wonderful way to see and learn about the city. Chris was amazing. I wish we booked more than 2 hours because of how great he was.
Tom was an amazing tour guide and it was an excellent way to start our 14th wedding anniversary! The Mini Cooper is such a classic car and it was a joy spending the morning touring one of our favorite cities! We will absolutely book again on the next trip. Thanks again, Tom!
