A combination of the morning tour, followed by the afternoon tour. It’s the ultimate way to see the best of London's rock music history.

What a great way to see parts of London you wouldn and #39;t normally see. Steve was passionate about the tour and a lot of fun, even if our group was a little boring. He definitely knew his music history and stood in the middle of the road for us to take our picture at Abbey Road.
This was a great tour. Due to mass cancellations it turned out that I was the only one booked for the morning tour that day and I was very impressed that I was taken out anyway, rather than being asked to come back at another date and time. So it turned out that I had a private tour. My guide was great! Very knowledgeable. I really enjoyed my tour and if I'd had the time I would have liked to have done the entire day tour. I highly recommend this tour to visitors to London that are at all interested in Rock history.
Fabulous value for money,our tour guide Bob,was very knowledgable and made this tour both entertaining,and very informative,he was excellent
a great tour and really fascinating. great to see some major areas of London that you may not see on other tours and learn about the history behind it all.
Our tour guide Steve was second to none - he made the tour
I loved it -- Colin was extremely knowledgeable and I had a great time seeing and hearing about all the various locations and stories related to the Beatles, Stones, Queen, Hendrix, Clash, Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, Clapton, etc etc etc. even if as others have noted, not all of the buildings actually exist anymore, or have been turned into some other business -- like the Chelsea Drugstore now being a McDonalds -- but that is to be expected as much of this rock history is now 50 years old! The one thing which may have been my own fault was that I thought the tour was 3 hours long rather than 4, so my daughter and I had to cut out at the Abbey Road stop and hop in a cab although Colin graciously offered to drop us off somewhere, but I didn't want to make him have to do that on our account. And just one final note, I would have liked to have heard more about the Kinks, but maybe that would depend upon the locations visited in the morning vs. afternoon tours, as we were on the afternoon tour. But this in no way diminished the excellent job Colin did!!
It was an excellent tour. Our guide Bruce could tell so much about many famous rock artists and where they had their first gigs and lots of background information. He did it in an amazing way, with lots of humor and flair. This was definitely one of the highlights of our weekend. We did the morning tour. Walked across Abbey Road, was real fun.
This Rock Tour was amazing. Loved every minute of it. We saw parts of London that didn't know existed. Would thoroughly recommend.
Collen was very good guide. The afternoon tour was enough. I wouldn't do the whole day tour.
Best tour I ever done. Guide was great.
Bob is no ordinary tour guide.
He is a historian and a rock 'n roll super enthusiast!
And his passion comes out in every word/story that he shared with us on an absolutely fascinating 4 hour long tour in London.
If you are into rock 'n roll and have just one day in London, see it with Bob.
