We decided to check out the Rock and Roll tour while visiting London. It was amazing. Our tour guide knew every detail you could imagine. He was funny, knowledgeable and everything you would want in a tour guide. Our driver managed the streets like a pro. We were able to take lots of pictures and have ample opportunity to see the sights. I loved this tour. Highly recommend, it did not dissapoint.

It was a fascinating trip around London seeing all the sights where the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Yes, Rolling Stones, The Byrds, Bob Marley, Brian Epstein (Beatles manager) and many more places where these musical groups got their start and/or played in London. We also drove by the houses of Freddie Mercury, Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page, and Ringo Starr. As a treat, our bus went by the last apartment that Judy Garland stayed in when she was performing in Talk of the Town. We even got to stop at former Rolling Stones member, Bill Wyman's "Sticky Fingers" -- a great little pub in the area. But the biggest treat was visiting Abbey Road and doing the infamous crosswalk from the 1969 album. Our guide was just fabulous -- definitely worth a tour

What a fun day! I was on the morning and the afternoon tours. Our host, Lee, really knew his stuff, and his humor and knowledge of British rock history made this an outstanding experience. I learned a few things, and enjoyed seeing the places where some of my favorite music was born! Well done, and I STRONGLY reccomend this tour!
