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!
What a wonderful expericence. We received a lot of information and heard many interesting stories. We were lucky to explore Londron from new different angles during nice and easy ride in afternoon, imagininig great musicians walking the streets. Thank you.
Ian the guide was brillant told us things we never knew and more not just the music well done
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.
Truly enjoyed this trip. I learned a lot about the music and enjoyed touring London and seeing the actual places while listening to the various musicians music. The tour guide was very informative.
Fantastic trip!! Ian was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. We'd recommend this trip to anyone.
If I could give this more stars I would! We went on the all-day tour with guides Ian and Steve who provided a very insightful and witty experience we will never forget! It gives any classic rock fan the opportunity to visit the legendary spots you only ever read/hear about. Its the best time to soak up all that music history in the place where it all started. A lot is said about all the greats the list is long!. I was also thrilled to take a detour and see Freddie Mercury's a hero of mine home and get the chance to cross Abbey Road :D
Being a Zep-Head my personal highlight was seeing Jimmy Page's house! Although we didn't see him which I hear some lucky fans do! there is always the next time because I am definitely doing this again!
I took the afternoon tour with Steve North. It was great! Seeing some very important places in the history of rock music. The music I grew up with came alive seeing the houses that my rock idles lived and died in. Steve made it come alive with his knowledge of the bands, the people and the places. His passion came through with every tale. Not to mention he risked life and limb taking our pictures making The walk' very cool. I will defiantly remember this day every time I play or listen to the song of the British Invasion! I rank it right up there with my memory of watching The Beatles on Ed Sullivan. I'm looking forward to my next trip to London so I can take the morning tour.
This tour was AWESOME!! Our guide Bruce was so knowledgeable and he really seemed to enjoy sharing the tour with us. He is an old rocker and had much personal history to share with us as well as showing us all the behind the scenes. Loved seeing Abbey Road Studio and also the famous crossing!! Definitely recommend this tour!
The knowledge and history that the tour guide had and shared with us was unbelievable. It was very enjoyable and I would highly recommend it to friends and family
Absolutely fantastic! What an amazing your! The guide really new what he was doing and had an amazing passion for music. His passion is what made the tour even better.

Really fun and informative!! I did this one more to go along with my husband.... but I ended up really enjoying the tour as well. Of course, the highlight for me was Abbey Road and seeing where Amy Winehouse lived and the park that inspired her to write many of her songs. Loved it!
