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

So happy we did the morning and afternoon tour...different highlights for each. Our guide was fantastic! Thank you and will recommend to friends.

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!

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!

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.

A great tour of the rock history of London, highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in the Rock era. A very knowledgeable tour guide made the tour a great experience

When I reserved this tour, my expectations weren't super high. I'm a huge music lover and fan, and am often disappointed with the quality of music-related things. However, this tour (and Lee, my guide) exceeded all expectations. His personal stories and sense of humor made this tour a blast, and I feel like I lucked out and got the best rock tour I possibly could have. 11 out of 10 stars, if you're on the fence just book this now.

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
