Being a Beatle fan I looked forward to this tour. My only disappointment was that the driver/tour guide was not any good at taking a photo of people crossing the famous street, so I missed out on that type of souvenir.

We chose the small group Rock Legends tour, which was 3.5 hours in duration. Obviously, one could spend days experiencing all the rock history London has to offer, but this tour offered plenty in its short duration. Steve, our tour guide, had an encyclopedic-like knowledge of all things rock. He was very passionate, and it showed. We also got to listen to British rock along the way that coincided with the landmarks on our tour. Highly recommend this tour for British Rock fans.

As two who grew up in the sixties listening to the Beatles, Stones, Hendrix etc. this tour was simply wonderful! Our guide Jim was so knowledgeable about all things London Rock-n-Roll it was amazing! From where people lived, worked and unfortunately died, he knew it all and had some very interesting stories to share. Seeing Abbey Road Studio and the spot where the famous "Chelsea Drug Store" used to be was like reliving our youth. A great addition to our London trip and highly recommended.

Really enjoyed this tour, and thought it was a good value for the money. Definitely sit on the opposite side from the driver for the best views. My only suggestions for the tour operator would be to tell passengers what to expect ahead vs. as the van goes by and it is too late to take photos, and allow time to visit the Abbey Road Studios shop. I learned a lot on this tour, and definitely recommend it!

This was the perfect end to our three days of sight seeing. It was a lot of fun, nice small bus - group of 10 ,a relaxing tour, quite informative. Jim was our guide and he made our trip even better. He was game to do anything for us. We stopped at Abbey Road and he took our pictures, stopping traffic. we stopped at a Beatles shop and a well known bar. All in all we are very happy we took it.

We absolutely LOVED this tour and Steve was a fantastic guide! The time flew by and we were sad to see the tour end. Steve had great stories to share and was so passionate about sharing his love of rock ' n roll, particularly the Beetles. The music on the van was very well chosen too. Steve, did you see YESTERDAY yet? We'd love to hear how you liked it on FB messenger!

What a fun afternoon. We boarded the van and toured many highlights of the London rock scene. It was great to see Abbey Road Studios especially after the 50th year anniversary. We highly recommend this tour!

This tour was an amazing addition to our London trip! Our tour guide was Al, who was knowledgeable and entertaining! I would recommend this to anyone who has any interest in British Rock.

Our comfortable mini bus took us all over London where we saw a number of houses etc of famous rock and music legends where they lived (and died) . We stopped for a drink at Bill Wymans Sticky Fingers bar, walked over the crossing outside the Abbey Road Studios and popped into a fab little Beatles memorabilia shop. A fun and informative way to spend an afternoon

This was a huge highlight of our London trip. We learned lots of interesting tidbits, saw some pretty incredible historical rock sites and even had an actual Eric Clapton siting!! And our tour guide was a real life Brazilian rock star named Dan Torres, who was absolutely adorable. I’m pretty sure my 75 year old mother stayed with the tour strictly because Dan was so entertaining. Highly recommend.

First visit to London...great experience beyond Parliament, Palaces; strolling along the Thames; and fish and chips! Our guide, Guy, did a great job. ( Photo ops at Abbey Road could have been managed better)

LOVED THIS TOUR! First, our guide Jimmy was friendly, helpful and KNOWLEDGEABLE! We saw lots of sites covering the Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Hendrix, Queen, Clapton, Clash, Sex Pistols - even Carly Simon! I’m a big fan, but my wife, who is not, thoroughly enjoyed all the history and visiting so many neighborhoods. Loved the stop at Bill Wyman’s Sticky Fingers restaurant and Jimmy photographed each of us on Abbey Road! Well worth it for even the casual fan!

We had a blast on the Rock Legends Small Group tour! The guide/driver was very prompt, very informative with all kinds of "tidbit" information, and maneuvered us through the London streets safely. There were 16 passengers and we all bonded by singing out loud to the broadcast music as we toured. Highly recommend!

Wow what a tour! Lee was our tour guide and he was awesome! It had always been my husband's dream to walk across Abbey Road and this tour made it happen! So much to see and we loved every minute of it! Don't miss this tour if you love Rock and Roll!

I wish you had 10 stars for this tour!!!! Visiting Abbey Road has been on my bucket list for years. I have been to London 3 times prior to this trip and never made it to Abbey Road. What an absolutely fantastic tour this was!!! Our driver/guide was Bruce the owner of Rock Legends tour company He was SO knowledgeable and entertaining with his commentary throughout the tour. This is the only way you hear behind the scenes stories about rock legends. Plus - we were in a 16 passenger bus - not a gigantic motor coach so we were able to get through neighborhoods that big motor coaches couldn't we actually didn't see one big coach the whole time! We saw the current homes of Paul McCartney my favorite, Jimmy Paige, Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and more. Of course we all know these rock stars spend a lot of time in the US but these are their homes when they are in the UK. So cool!! We also saw multiple recording studios Led Zepplin, Rolling Stones, etc. Drove by the pub still open that the Beatles hung out at back in the day. We stopped at Bill Wyman's Sticky Fingers restaurant for beverages or snacks. All kinds of authentic rock memorabilia in there. We also stopped in front of the former flat of John and Yoko great photo op! Abbey Road was my personal favorite. Our driver/guide took photos of all of us individual groups crossing the very busy Abbey Road. It's going to be my Christmas Card this year. We also sang some classic rock songs on the bus at random times and Bruce had plenty of trivia for us. Highlight of our time in London for sure!!! If you're an old rocker at heart.......you NEED to do this tour!!!

We had a totally brilliant time being driven around London hearing musical facts many of which we never knew even though we've both lived here for 50 years. The sights in the 3.5 hour tour are non-stop, from finding out where and how the Sex Pistols came to be, to where the Live Aid single was recorded. Bruce our guide was great fun, kept us entertained throughout and helped to make it a super afternoon, and his musical knowledge is amazing! Take care when having your photo done crossing Abbey Road though, not all drivers are patient!

Terrific amount of interesting facts, great guide

This is a must do in London if you have ever loved music. I humored my husband by going because he is a musician and I think I might have loved it even more than he did! Well, maybe not. Our friends said their tour guide was the best get him, but we thought ours was the best, so I concluded they are all fabulous, so it doesn't matter. The walk on Abby Road are pictures we will have in our scrap book forever as well as all the iconic music memorabiliac I made that word up sights we saw! So great!

Our guide Ian was very well informed of the rock legends. Saw all the landmarks I only pictured in photos and film. Very well worth it!

Second time we did this exact tour. That should say it all !! This time with family and friends. Informative about the Rock Legends, where they lived, where they hung out, and the highlight if you are a Beatle fan crossing Abbey Road! Highly recommend this tour

Well, where do I begin. First off, Lee was the best of the best. His knowledge of rock and roll was amazing. From the start he was energized and ready to go. We listened to music while Lee told us the history or rock and roll in London. From one stop to the next the information continued to pour from Lee. But..... then potential disaster as our van gave out on us. We were headed towards the one stop that I wanted to see the most... Apple Studio. So we are on the side of the road while Lee calls his office and between them a plan is developed. Without hesitation Lee gave us some options and we continue our tour via the tube. Again, Lee was all over it watching out for each of us and finally he got us to Apple. A few pictures and some shopping and we were done. What could have been a terrible experience suddenly became a tour I will never forget. Lee never gave up and was determined to give us the tour we had paid for. It might have cost me a few pounds more taking the tube, but it was worth it. Again, thank you so much.
