We had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and couldn't recommend this tour highly enough. Our guide and bus driver was excellent and knew the London rock scene back to front. We were taken to all of the highlight locations around London as described in the brochure and had plenty of time to explore and take photos. It was a great experience and I would recommend this tour to anyone with even the slightest interest in the London music scene.

Our tour guide Bob was wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable about the music scene and London, as was the driver of the bus navigating us through the perilous traffic of downtown London!! If you are a music lover this tour is a MUST! I wish we had booked the all day tour!
