Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Michael Purvis did an outstanding job presenting Beatles and London history. He went above and beyond my expectations. He is a lifelong musician, and you could sense his passion for the British contribution to music and other arts. Michael is a professional that blends narration and visual presentation (pictures on his ipad) to give tourists insight into 60’s and 70’s London.
The tour was very laid back with a couple of stops for a pint. I counted over 15k steps on my pedometer, but the walk was not physically challenging for me, an overweight 62 year old.
I would recommend this tour to anyone, especially those curious to learn more about British Rock & Roll. Thanks Michael, James Tucker

Michael is a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. It was so cool to walk through London and get to know the spots where many iconic rockstars did their daily things. Abbey Road was my highlight, Michael literally stopped traffic to take our picture which turned out great!!

This tour it's AWESOME i really recommend it. We did a lot of iconic places from the time the Beatles where in London (like where the rooftop concert was played, I won't spoil more places...). If you really like the Beatles, this tour is PERFECT for you, and it's obvious that Michael loves this awesome band,knows a lot and will answer you whatever question you ask.

Michael Purvis gave us (a group of 8) an absolutely fantastic tour of London that I was not aware was associated with the Beatles. His obvious love of the group came through and was appreciated by all in our group. I would highly recommend Michael's tour as a must if one wanted to see the rock scene in London through the early 60's into the 70's.... Beatles, Bowie, Queen, Hendrix etc, etc. Well Done Michael. I will bring others to do it again soon.

Michael made a great guide showing us numerous Beatle related sights which we would never have found ourselves. Highlights included Abbey Road and The Apple building but numerous other sights were visited. Michael was knowledgeable and easy to chat to and I would highly recommend his Here There and Everywhere Tour.

Outstanding tour with Michael Purvis. Fun, fascinating and easily manageable walking pace for the two of us old enough to be serious Beatles fans. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Michael was a very pleasant guide and an excellent communicator. He imparted his extensive knowledge of the Beatles and the area of London through which he took us. He allowed us to go at our own pace which as seniors we really appreciated. We would definitely recommend this tour to first time visitors to London or as in our case visitors who had been to London before.

It was amazing, Michael is simply THE guide, don't think anyone else can do it better.

His kwowledge and diversified background flashed me right from the beginning till the end of the four houres tour, no need to tell that he of course took a photo with my smart phone when I walked over the zebra crossing in Abbey Road, a burning desire for many years.

In general I'm really not the guy taking to many pictures at all, with any kind of technical devices, the pictures I take are in my mind / my head, so we just walked around, talking to each other, he showing me the basics of Beatlemania and other stuff and I just enjoying the day, and I will always remember.

At any point we stopped for a short break Michael opened his tablet and showed me the historical pictures for the actual surrounding and explained more about the background, so now I know the story about the dirty old man in Paul's song paperback writer, and that's not the only magical mystery I learned on the tour.

Even if my hair is now beginning to get grey I for example never heared about the blue plaques before, but he showed me the most important ones, not only the Beatles related ones, but also the ones from other famous musicians and London related guys.

The 2 of us met as guide and tourist and left as friends, I indeed shared a bar of chocolate with him, something that didn't happen for quite a long time.

Whenever I'll be back to London, I'm gonna do it again
