Tour was excellect . Covered a lot of English Rock history in helpful manner. Only wish Bob had written a book to buy. A written script of what he said as a handout would be helpful to tour

Steve was a Great guide! Very knowledgeable, friendly, engaging, and full of great trivia. If you want to learn anything about any rockers--especially those from 60'2-70's, Steve is perfect! Even through in stuff about today's musicians. Highly Recommend for a fun afternoon!

Everything we expected and more! Our guide Steve was so knowledgeable about the London music scene. We saw areas of London we wouldn't have traveled unless we were in the the tour. Nothing better than ending the tour crossing Abbey Road! Highly recommend.

We loved this tour and learned so much! We were all glad that we chose to do both the morning and afternoon tours as it allowed us to see so many places. Both of our tour guides were exceptional!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Wow what a great tour. Our tour guide Bruce had so much knowledge of music and the history of rock and roll. We drove through Soho, where so much rock kicked off in the clubs in the 60's and 70's. Bruce showed us the building where it all started. We drove through Kings Cross to Islington through Camden town , St Johns Wood and back into London. Bruce told us about all the history and homes in each area that we travelled. Walking across Abbey Road and having our picture taken was very memorable. Anyone interested in music couldn't find a better tour than this.

This was our time killer until we could check into our Flat. Best thing to do at the beginning of our trip. Not only did the tour deliver all the things it promised, but gave such a nice overview of things we ended up doing because we heard about them on the tour. A must for any rock music fan. Our guide Steve was great and knows his stuff. Highlight was seeing Amy Winehouse's old stomping ground and Abby Rd.

Excellent tour, guide extremely knowledgeable, great fun would definitely do again.

Steve, our tour guide, did a fantastic job. He is very knowledgable and even taught me, a huge, lifelong Beatles fan, something about north vs south England bands. I saw so many cool things in this music rich city. If you like rock and roll, you'll like this tour.
