The Best Taxis from Around the World

As far as the world of taxi cabs are concerned, the bar isn’t set particularly high. Most adventure-seeking travelers modestly request stain-free seats, a smooth ride, and a cost-effective route. The bar for superior taxi service isn’t very high. Perhaps, that’s because most of us have yet to experience the top-shelf customer experience offered by some of the world’s best taxis!

Today, we take a look at the most celebrated taxi service in the entire world. Buckle up and let’s go!

New York City, New York

If you’ve ever seen a movie set in NYC, then you’re probably all too familiar with the yellow cabs zooming through the over-crowded streets. Though their numbers are waning, yellow taxis are still an important part of the city that never sleeps. But you know this already.

Sporting a traditional, New York Taxi yellow paint job, New York’s fleet of Water Taxis offer tourists an Insta-worthy sight-seeing experience across Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Statue of Liberty. It’s going to take more than a waving hand and a serious expression to wave these things down though. If you’re hoping to hop aboard, you’ll need to book your trip in advance.
