This tour was one of the best highlights during my time in London. Ian was simply the best! His knowledge and passion for British rock history is amazing. The full day tour included great sites and Ian picked out the perfect soundtrack along the way. Everything from skiffle roots to current day Brit Rock! I would do this tour again in a heartbeat!

Tour guide Lee has a great sense of humor and was amazingly knowledgable about so many artists. We stopped for pictures at multiple homes and venues of famous rock and roll stars. The fact that this was a small group made it that much more enjoyable. Got much more than we expected.

We did the morning and afternoon tour and the stories were so very interesting that he tied into the places, it was very unique. Our favorites were the Who studio, Queen's first debut, and Abbey road of course! He had so much experience, we had no problems getting all the pictures we wanted. I highly recommend this tour for any rock fan!

We recently finished spending a month in England. I scheduled this music tour for the first day after our arrival. When we finished, my husband said, "If I don't do anything else the rest of our trip, our trip was a success!" This was over-the-top wonderful. Lee was our guide. We were blown away by how much he knew. We can't say enough how great he was as our tour guide. Our tour was fun, fascinating, and entertaining. We consider this a MUST if you love rock music.

AWESOME! As a music lover. Tour was magnificent. Guy the guide is very knowledgeable. Patient with a bunch of 60 year old rock and rollers. He made tour very enjoyable. Will do again if I visit London again

Our party of four saved this outing for our last day in London. The guide, Colin, and our driver, Clive, were both excellent. We were able to see so many places that music started from in the 60-70's, with the highlight being the Beatles and Stones. The interesting stories of that era and highlights of their houses, and hangouts, and concert sites were something that we never would have found on our own. Our group had 16 or 18 people on our comfortable coach. Near the end, we got to see and walk across Abbey Road. I think everyone on our bus was very happy that they booked this excursion.

Rest of our family really into rock and this was entertaining for them. Our guide Jim was very good...tho his bus had limited AC so we ended up opening windows. The family really enjoyed seeing the areas where history was made/recorded/lived. Worthwhile for rockers.
