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.
Our guide Ian was very knowledgeable about all things rock and roll in London
Highly recommend this tour - the tour guide was so knowledgeable and we learnt more than we thought we would not only about the London Rock Music history, but also some interesting things about London itself. It was great getting to drive around in the city and see it from a different perspective. Abbey Road a clear highlight!
The afternoon rock tour was amazing! It really put the London rock scene in perspective. Our guide, Bob, was knowledgeable and informative. The highlight was walking across Abbey Road. So glad our guide told us about the EarthCam recording. Now I have footage of us!
Excellent tour with guide Bob.
Enjoyable and very informative, finding out about hidden gems away from the usual touristy places. Bob's knowledge of the music scene and London itself was admirable, he has a great personality and tried to cater for everyone's individual tastes.
A great mornings experience, well worth the money and I would highly recommend this tour and tour guide Bob to anyone!
