Bob, who was our tour guide, was a wealth of information and very passionate about the rock scene in London. He was very captivating and I would recommend anyone who has a chance to take a tour with Bob, definitely do so...!!

Our guide Ian was fantastic. He made the tour very personal and remembered our names throughout the day. He really knows his rock history. Since we are Beatle fans, Ian went out of his way to give us extra Beatle trivia. Our tour was on a Sunday so there was less traffic than usual which was nice.

Much ground, both historical and across London, was covered on this afternoon tour with the guide doing a fine job at balancing informative commentary and good driving skills.
We only had two chances to leave the bus: at Bill Wyman's Sticky Fingers bar and the Abbey Road recording studios where you could read up on the important milestones, dating back to the 1930s, as you made your entry into the on site gift shop.
The Beatles, individually and collectively, probably got the most mentions, but there was also fabulous nuggets of information about the likes of Dave Clark, Robert Stigwood, Chris Blackwell founder of Island Records, Harry Nilsson, Sharon Osbourne and many others.
A contender for the most fascinating story could well be the writing process followed by Freddy Mercury with regard to the lyrics for Bohemian Rhapsody.
With regard to the properties we saw from the outside, there was a house owned by Paul McCartney since 1966 and adjoining residences belonging to Jimmy Page and Robbie Williams.
A rewarding tour experience that I would recommend to both the casual listener and the most ardent musicophile.

We thoroughly enjoyed our morning on the Rock Tour. Our guide Colin was enthusiastic and informative and was keen to ensure that we got the most from the tour. The balance of stopping for him to give a talk about what we could see and getting out to look around was ideal - and one stop for a cup of tea. We were possibly fortunate that there were only 7 of us as there were a few no-shows! Also, Colin was adept at tailoring the content of his chats to bands and acts there were of deeper interest to those of us on the bus. All in all a good morning - and on a further London trip I'm sure we'll do one of the other Rock tours.
