The Italian Job

Summary

A bespoke half day sightseeing experience where you will discover the very best that London has to offer and paying homage to the iconic 1960's classic film, you will travel in an original, restored classic Mini Cooper, with your own personal getaway driver!

Michael Caine’s 1969 film, The Italian Job, has become a cult classic and encapsulates London’s eccentricity perfectly.  In the film Charlie Croaker and his fellow gang of reprobates steal $4 million from the Italian Mafia using 3 classic Mini Coopers.  To carry out the job they don bright blue jump suits and tweed flat caps, stash the gold in the boot and make their getaway via the side streets of Turin.

You can re-enact this iconic scene with the optional fancy dress overalls and caps in the boot !  Your getaway driver is a passionate local guide that will show you places you wont find in the guide books!  The really good stuff in London is often hidden away down tiny back streets and alleyways that only a Mini can get to.

    What a fabulous afternoon - for someone who has loved minis for years as well as a 'word perfect' Italian Job fan, this was the perfect afternoon. Tom and Stevie with the help of the minis, Lulu and Poppy, took the family (four of us) around some of the great and lesser known sites of the city. As someone who travels into London on a fairly regular basis, you tend to think that you know the place - but how very wrong you can be. A great afternoon being picked up near Green Park and dropped at the Shard for afternoon tea. Brought back many fabulous memories of having my own minis.(all grown up and sensible now apparently).

    My wife spotted two Minis in Covent Garden. Looked like they were straight out of the Italian Job. From the moment she saw them, it was, we have to do that. Found the website, made a booking and we had a most memorable excursion around a London with Jamie on. Friday. Saw things we wouldn’t have thought of and we were seen... plenty of people amazed to see these cars on the road, buzzing about. We did a 4 hour tour... but next time it’s the Italian Job for us (with the Blue overalls)

    The mini tour was by far one of our best experiences while in London!!! We did not plan out our trip to see all sites and spots, etc. but the mini tour gave you a glimpse of just about everything! The two hour tour with our wonderful drive "The Italian Job", seemed like 10 minutes - it flew by because of how much we enjoyed it. The driver was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, friendly and so much fun. The car's name was Daisy! If we go back again we will probably do an even longer tour! HIGHLY recommend for anyone traveling to London :)
