    Amazing Tour
    Totally awesome. Our tour guide, Colin, was extraordinarily knowledgeable. He has probably forgotten more about the music scene in London than most will EVER know. If you’re into music, this tour is worth three times what they charge!

    I loved this tour!
    I loved this tour so much. I was afraid it would be too heavy on Beatles, but it was so much more. I would recommend this to any music fan. We did the 3 1/2 hour tour & I was very satisfied. Colin was an amazing guide & Joanne was a great driver. I saw way more than I was expecting.

    So fun!
    Colin was incredible! No notes, just like an encyclopedia of knowledge about all things rock and roll. He also was kind enough to take pictures for me on Abbey Road because I attended alone. A great tour!

    Great way to see the city
    We did this tour the first day we arrived in London! Our tour guide was informative and made sure we all had opportunities to share our rock knowledge as well. My kids 14 and 11 yo enjoyed as well- very family friendly tour!

    Great start to our vacation!
    We were a bit tired as we did this tour the day we flew in from JFK, but the tour guide’s energy and enthusiasm helped us overcome any weariness. He was knowledgeable, funny and engaging! I highly recommend this tour for Beatles fanatics and even casual fans!

    Great Rock History Trip - Amazing way to see City!
    We really enjoyed the Rock N' Roll tour! Collin was our tour guide and he was fantastic! We did the full day tour, which is highly recommended. The morning was spent learning all about the beginning of Rock N' Roll in London, while the afternoon was spent at the peak of Rock N' Roll. If you are a fan of music, this is a must-do tour. You'll learn about all your favorite musicians, and probably even a few you aren't familiar with and get to see some of the most iconic places where musicians hung out and legendary rock spots! If you get Collin as a tour guide, you're in for a treat! It was a great day trip!

    Something really special
    Amazing tour! Colin did an excellent job!! He was very knowledgeable and just in tune with it all. He took us to so many great spots - it’s hard to describe in words how special the whole experience was. Definitely the highlight of my trip to England! Thank you!!

    Rock and Roll Tour
    Our tour guide Mark was incredibly knowledgeable and it was a fun tour for people that like rockers from Beatles through Punk Rockers, and everything in between. We saw where rockers lived, ate. recorded music, and unfortunately passed away. Bands covered were Beatles. Stones.Queen. Hendrix, Clapton etc. etc. And of course you take the classic photo of walking on Abby Road.

    Cool and Interesting but pricey
    Jim was super knowledgeable and happy to go the extra mile for everyone. Bit pricey compared to other half day tours. Very interesting if you know your stuff about music 😊

The guide, Ian, is so familiar with the city and the history of music that we felt we learned a lot on the tour. Best of all, we told him our favourite musicians and he did his best to include at least a mention of them and their time in London or England. Very happy to have explored areas that are not in tourist guides, such as the little shop near Abbey Road Studios.

Lee provided a really good experience. He is a wealth of rock information and was so much fun. We travelled in a comfortable van with a great sound system, Surreal that we got to see Abbey Road and Apple Studios where the Beatles performed their last concert - dream come true. Highly recommend this tour.

Ok, this tour is awesome. Mark was such a fun and knowledgeable tour guide. I was flying solo for this tour and would highly recommend this experience. Was absolutely freezing outside so a 3-4 hr warm coach ride with awesome music, stories about my favorite musicians, and tidbits about the city was the best choice. Got to see a LOT and got my Abbey Road photo. Go for it!

Ian was a wonderful guide, funny, entertaining and all-knowing regarding London rock history. He asked us at the beginning if anyone was interested in particular musicians or groups, and he made sure to hit those as we drove around the city. Hendrix, Who, Bowie, T. Rex, Beatles/Stones (of course), Brit Pop, Elton, etc. The tour was 3.5 hours but flew by, I could have gone all day. If you have any interest in seeing where iconic moments in music history actually happened, don't miss this tour!

Ian was a Rock and Roll institution and had all the answers. Loved the sites and the history and stories of the artists and homesites. He played a history game of "mental ping pong" with one of the guests; and won! Unfortunately, we were dropped off in Piccadilly Circus at tour's end and that was different than tour's start and we were a bit lost. Challenge getting a photo crossing the street Abby Road recording studios. All in all, a great tour for the music affectionato.

My son turned 21 the day we toured and we love a lot of the same music, so I booked this tour. Lee was a fantastic host, very entertaining and knowledgeable about the music history he was sharing. And a good driver! Also he took excellent pics of us crossing Abbey Road. We’ll worth the price, and a great memory we got to share.

Went on this tour with (and for) our grandson who wanted to visit Abbey Road and walk across the crossing!!
We decided to make an afternoon of it and so booked this tour, the reviews of it were good.
Our guide was a very pleasant man called Guy. He was very knowledgable and showed us many interesting rock related places around central London. The tour was conducted from a comfortable Mercedes mini bus and driven by Guy the guide(!)
Guy was both enthusiastic and interesting in the way he presented he delivered our tour. He obviously enjoys his work! We saw and heard about many of the Rocks legends who lived in or visited London and also a surprising number of them who also died in London! The highlight (in our case) was Abbey Road our grandson had his picture taken walking across a certain Zebra crossing and it made his day. Guy took the pictures after walking us through how it should be done to her the best picture for us with the minimum of delay for the traffic! Very interesting tour highly recommended. It’s possible that other guides are just as good in their knowledge of the subject but Guy’s personality and patience certainly impressed us. Also a refreshing was the fact that we were not asked or hinted at to leave a tip to show our appreciation to the driver/guide which made a very welcome change!!!... and in our case encouraged us to leave a good tip as a thank you for a great afternoon out.
So we’ll done to London Rock Legends Small Group Tour (located just of Trafalgar Square on Cockspur Street) and a big thank you to Guy for being a great Guy (👍😂)

Wanted t follow the Beatles but also explore other Rock Legends from London and this was the perfect mix. Liam our tour guide knew everything! He provided laminated photos of album covers, performers and scenes from glimpses into their lives. So much history, trivia and information presented in a fun and witty forum. The “crowning moment” was the reenactment from the Abbey Toad album zebra crossing at Abbey Road studios. Fantastic tour - highly recommend!

Jim was our guide and was fantastic! A musician in his own right, Jim was very knowledgeable, witty and date oriented. Never a dull moment on a 3+ hour tour. He also made sure everyone got the crossing Abbey Road picture. My daughter is not as big of a music fan as I am, but she loved it for the great tour of London neighborhood. Don’t miss it!

Our tour was fantastic!! Our tour guide Ian was excellent! Ian took us to several different locations in London to see homes and streets where singers lived or had lived. Ian talks about many different bands ex.The Rolling Stones, Jimmy Hendrix, The Beatles etc. Our tour was 31/2 hours of pure joy and excitement. I highly rate this tour and Ian!
