The poor old 70 plus year old drivers are a little pitiful but so nice. Comfortable cabs and always ready to roll. Very expensive though.

We always use the black cabs when in London. Easy to flag down, reasonably priced and the cab drivers always share their knowledge of our beloved capital. Fab service always.

The London black cabs have a flip out wheelchair ramp. The cab drivers were courteous and helped me load and unload. You can get anywhere you wish to go in a Black Cab. London is accessible!!!

Maybe it’s more expensive than the Tube (which is bad enough) but you get a door to door service - and I’ve always found the cabbies to be friendly, polite and helpful. It was raining, and we had left a reception at Westminster. One wave...More

As I stated in my review, after my experience in a black cab in London I won't use them again. I've read the reviews on Uber and they seem to be better. Unfortunately if the cab driver knows you're not local he will rip you... More
