An iconic car with a cult following, the classic Mini Cooper has been the darling of British motoring since its inception. Made famous by films such as The Italian Job and now reincarnated in a modern edition, the Mini is a quintessential part of the British cultural landscape.
How better then to explore the capital than in a vintage Mini? With the help of a passionate local guide and driver you can whizz down tiny back streets, blaze a trail past iconic sights and enjoy the thrill of seeing the city from a completely different perspective.
Your driver picks you up at your hotel to start the private, three-hour trip around London's sights. You have a chance to admire the beautifully restored vintage Mini Cooper before hopping in and buckling up for the ride.
The cars are driven by professional guides who are trained to handle the city streets and fill you in on the juiciest details of London life as you go. The tours are totally flexible, you can choose where you want to go, follow a particular theme or let your local guide take you to the best places the city has to offer.
Whether you want to see the city's world-famous city landmarks, historic highlights, the back streets of Covent Garden or street art, markets or the East End, the choice is yours.
Whatever you decide to do however, you'll be amazed at just how nimble and quick these classic cars are. Due to the Mini's tiny size, you’re able to nip through traffic and travel through lanes too small for normal cars, allowing you to avoid the traffic and experience a more intimate, ‘backstage’ side of the city.
The passionate guides bring the city to life in highly imaginative ways, revealing secrets about its history and development, taking you to places you might never otherwise see, and regaling you with stories about London's famous residents. The tour offers you a chance to see London through local eyes, discovering the kind of things you only get to know after years of living here.
At the end of your tour your driver can drop you back to your hotel or can deliver you to a spot of your choosing, recommend a place for lunch or suggest further places to visit in your own time.
