I was really excited to learn all about the rock and roll history in London but I couldn't hear anything, our tour guide (which he never introduced himself so I don't even know his name) always had troubles talking into the microphone so everybody on this mini bus couldn't hear any of the stories, not that there was much stories most of the time he was just pointing out who lived where. It was just very unorganized and exhausting just to be there, I really could have spent my time doing something else. Good thing I only did the afternoon tour!
Rest of our family really into rock and this was entertaining for them. Our guide Jim was very good...tho his bus had limited AC so we ended up opening windows. The family really enjoyed seeing the areas where history was made/recorded/lived. Worthwhile for rockers.
Had a really great time with Jim on our trip to London on the Rock and Roll tour. He was very knowledgeable and showed us some interesting sites that we would have otherwise passed by. He was an excellent Abbey Rd Photographer too. Thanks so much, Jim! Sara, Paul, Max and Abi from Burlington, Ontario, Canada
Great tour. Knowledgeable guide Steve. Hit all the spots. Got out twice - Sticky Fingers and Abbey Road. Even without rock interest it is a god tour of several posh neighborhoods. You might miss them if you only toured the traditional London sites.
Took the tour on a rainy afternoon. Myself, husband & 3 older children. Ian was a great tour guide giving lots of interesting tidbits on the Beatles, Stones, Zeppelin, Queen, etc.... All of us enjoyed it.
We recently finished spending a month in England. I scheduled this music tour for the first day after our arrival. When we finished, my husband said, "If I don't do anything else the rest of our trip, our trip was a success!" This was over-the-top wonderful. Lee was our guide. We were blown away by how much he knew. We can't say enough how great he was as our tour guide. Our tour was fun, fascinating, and entertaining. We consider this a MUST if you love rock music.
Was really disappointed with this tour on my recent trip to England. The instructions provided contained two different pickup locations. When I called on the day of the tour, the owner confirmed that the pickup would occur at the hotel location. No tour bus was there upon arrival, so I called to confirm once again and was unable to reach anyone. Called for an hour or so, until it was clear no tour bus would be coming for us. Thankfully Viator was very helpful and refunded me for this tour, but was still a huge letdown that we weren’t able to do the planned tour.
AWESOME! As a music lover. Tour was magnificent. Guy the guide is very knowledgeable. Patient with a bunch of 60 year old rock and rollers. He made tour very enjoyable. Will do again if I visit London again
Our party of four saved this outing for our last day in London. The guide, Colin, and our driver, Clive, were both excellent. We were able to see so many places that music started from in the 60-70's, with the highlight being the Beatles and Stones. The interesting stories of that era and highlights of their houses, and hangouts, and concert sites were something that we never would have found on our own. Our group had 16 or 18 people on our comfortable coach. Near the end, we got to see and walk across Abbey Road. I think everyone on our bus was very happy that they booked this excursion.
