Black Taxi Tours

Black Taxi Tours can give you a local insight into places in Edinburgh and stories that other tours can give. They can take you places unseen by the tourist on the hop on hop off buses and city tour buses. Ask for a price? Black Taxis can take up to and including 6 passengers. Sorry the price is the same for one person as it would be for 6 people. 

The Edinburgh Taxis have been around since the 18th century, when they were horse drawn. Taking there passengers to their wanted destination for a fee. The Black cab is now available for up to 6 passengers for a metered fare in and around Edinburgh and for a fixed fare to other destinations. You can hire a cab by the Hour (prices by mutual agreement). There is nowhere to far, from John O Groats at the top of Scotland to Lands End at the foot of England. The Black Cab drivers have a vast knowledge of the country and will give you an enjoyable guided tour to where ever you wish to go. All Black Taxi Drivers have photograph I.D. issued by the Edinburgh Council and have passed a knowledge test.
