This tour was awesome! Our guide took us to many of the spots where the music from London was inspired or created. Some of the spots we went to of course Abby Road, the Sticky Fingers restaurant where there was many Rolling Stones memorabilia hanging on the walls. We also drove to some of the rock stars homes such as Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page and Freddie Mercury. Bob our tour guide was a great storyteller of the history and facts of the London music scene. Played some great tunes as we were driving from place to place. I would definitely take this tour again. Probably would go the whole day next time.
This was absolutely the perfect trip down memory lane combined with a hell of a ride around London. Our guide couldn't have known more or done a better job. Just the greatest guy.
What a guy! To start, I committed a mistake and lost the tour on Saturday and he was very very kind to let me go on Sunday. The knowledge that he has about London history and rock history is unusual if you think that you know anything about rock we are wrong!. Besides the rock music he will bring you to some of the most beautiful and interesting places in London. I wish it was longer and with more opportunities to stop the car and see the places, because they are beautiful.
Recently I took the London Rock Music Tour, not only was it fun about also lot's of interesting stories about the sites we visited. I took photos at Sticky Fingers restaurant and other sites. The music played while on the tour was great also. For me going to visit Abbey Road was the high lite and also where The Beatles played their last concert on the roof top.
What a fun filled few hours. As soon as we got into the van the music was on, creating the atmosphere and we were off on our tour. Our guide was witty and full of information. The highlight for me was walking across the zebra crossing at Abbey Road.
The London Rock Music Tour was one of our favorite tours! Collin was so knowledgeable . . . it was like he was talking from experience!!
Had a great time riding around London with our guide Ian hearing the stories and seeing the sites of Rock and Roll history. We did the afternoon tour and are already planning to do the morning one as well on our return trip! You can tell this wasn't just a job for Ian, music is a passion of his which made the tour that much more enjoyable. Plus he made an effort to get to know us and what we were most interested in to make sure he pointed out special things we'd like. Would highly recommend this tour!

This is a must for any music history fan. The guide was cool, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. I was in awe of the places he brought us to like Freddy Mercury's house, Steve from Def Leppard and McCartneys. He gives you plenty of time for photos, takes some for you of the Abby Road and stops at the gift shop for memorable gifts. I loved the tour, guide, people at center were organized. One of my favorite tours ever.
This is an excellent way to see the places in London you've heard about. But it's an even better way to hear the stories and see places that only someone who's lived it can share. Thanks Ian! It was a brillant way for two Canadians to spend a Sunny Sunday Afternoon.
Small group and great guide who was really plugged into the London Alternative music scene. We took a friend who had lived in the area for three years and he said that he never knew a lot of what we heard and saw. Highly recommended, tour left right on time.
Our guide Ian was fantastic. He made the tour very personal. He really knows his rock history. We took the full day tour and in the morning it was just me and my husband. Ian took us to where David Bowie took the photo of his cover for Ziggy Stardust, and we also took pictures in front of Paul McCartney Studios. Not only did we learn more about rock and roll, we also learned about some of London's famous landmarks as we were passing them. We learned of the inspiration of songs then went by some of the places where the inspiration came from. We saw where Elton John learned to play piano, and where Pink Floyd went to school to become architects then instead went onto become a great band. In the afternoon, we saw where Brian Epstein lived and died, Freddy Mercury's house, where he also died, and even stopped at Bill Wyman's Sticky Fingers bar. There were so many places we visited the list goes on and on. The highlight was walking across Abbey Road and trying not to get hit by a car! So much fun I would recommend this tour to any lovers of music.

Enjoyed all the music history and really enjoyed that's it's a small group tour, so lots of time to ask questions and interact with the guide, and the others on the tour.
Wonderful trip.for my husbands birthday as staying in London.a job to find place to meet off Trafalgar square as advised to get off at Piccadilly!!!the guide called bob was soooooo knowlegable.we were gone for nearly 4hours with a toilet stop.hard trying to get photos of us walking across abbey road crossing but got one!well worth trip if you like music.
Our tour guide truly loved music and it showed. It made the tour that much more interesting. A MUST for any rock fan.
Thank you for the amazing day Ian!! We got some great tips on were to find live music in London.
This is a Must-Do for all rock fans. We covered a lot of territory: around London as well as from an historical perspective. Colin did a splendid job of touching on key points of Rock's formation in the city and had an amazing grasp of interesting bits. We liked that Colin did such a nice job of understanding each tour member's interests and adjusted the tour accordingly. A very nice balance of breaks to walk about, too. Highly recommended!
Fantastic tour. It is a must if you go to London. We done the full day tour, which I would recomend. Our guide Bob is a great guy. Well done!
Do it! This afternoon tour takes about four hours or so, but the guide was fantastic and the details were extensive.
Our tour was fabulous. The guide was so informative and personable, he made rock history come alive!
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and our driver/guide was excellent and most helpful, we would recommend it to others.
We saw do much. Places we never new even existed.
A must do if you love your music.
We did both the morning and afternoon tours and thoroughly enjoyed both. The guides were very knowledgeable and showed us many sites that we had heard of but would have never found on our own. I would highly recommend either tour to anyone who has an interest in Rock and Roll history.
