Taxi drivers

I think the UK's got the best taxi drivers in the world (well, at least in London...)

I say this cos I've just recalled how when I arrived in Melbourne in Oz last year, shattered with jet lag. Caught a taxi just outside the airport and told the driver the address of the backpacker's hostel where I was staying at (pre-paid in the UK). Ten minutes into the journey the driver handed me the equivalent of our A to Z map book and asked me to look it up and direct him there and I'd never ever been there before!! Wow!

I was well and truly gobsmacked!

Anybody here had weird/funny experiences with taxi drivers like that before anywhere in this world?
