    This was deffinately the highlight of our short break. Two adults and children aged 11 and 15. Colin was a fantastic guide. Even driving through tbe areas of London was interesting. We will be back for tbe day tour next time in London.

    Leigh is the best. Super friendly and knowledgeable about everything. It should be a required tour for everyone!

    First, the negatives. The listing for this was incorrect in many places. It states an all day, 8 hour tour (still does) on the web site, but it is 4.5 hours during winter hours. I contacted customer service twice; the first time I was told it was 8 hours as listed on the site, the second time that it was shorter. The description also states a maximum of 16 people in the headed, then it says 25 people in the further descriptions. Yet we had a full tour bus with an excess of 40 people on our tour, so it was not like I had expected it to be. The sound system on the bus was extremely difficult to hear, and the music they played through a large speaker then in to the bus sound microphone was worthless. The guide was good, but was so crunched for time to speak that we were often past landmarks before he could point them out. The Sticky Fingers cafe is a tourist trap, not much of any good Stones memorabilia.

    On the positive side, the tour guide was good and knew his rock history, and did the best he could with the aforementioned limitations. We were able to see neighborhoods in London that we might not have otherwise have seen on our trip which was cool.

    For anyone nostalgic for the 60's and beyond, this was a great tour. Our guide Colin was excellent and had a wealth of knowledge and I hadn't fully appreciated the evolution of music with the inter-mingling of both art and pop scenes as the Beatles story took off. The guide asked for specific music groups of interest so for our larger group and a bigger bus, it was pretty broad, but he did a great job of referencing others like the Eagles, Stones, Queen and much more.

    The guide Jim was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained the whole trip
    Would recommend this trip to anyone who loves their rock music

    We decided to check out the Rock and Roll tour while visiting London. It was amazing. Our tour guide knew every detail you could imagine. He was funny, knowledgeable and everything you would want in a tour guide. Our driver managed the streets like a pro. We were able to take lots of pictures and have ample opportunity to see the sights. I loved this tour. Highly recommend, it did not dissapoint.

    It was a fascinating trip around London seeing all the sights where the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Yes, Rolling Stones, The Byrds, Bob Marley, Brian Epstein (Beatles manager) and many more places where these musical groups got their start and/or played in London. We also drove by the houses of Freddie Mercury, Paul McCartney, Jimmy Page, and Ringo Starr. As a treat, our bus went by the last apartment that Judy Garland stayed in when she was performing in Talk of the Town. We even got to stop at former Rolling Stones member, Bill Wyman's "Sticky Fingers" -- a great little pub in the area. But the biggest treat was visiting Abbey Road and doing the infamous crosswalk from the 1969 album. Our guide was just fabulous -- definitely worth a tour

    So happy we did the morning and afternoon tour...different highlights for each. Our guide was fantastic! Thank you and will recommend to friends.

    What a fun day! I was on the morning and the afternoon tours. Our host, Lee, really knew his stuff, and his humor and knowledge of British rock history made this an outstanding experience. I learned a few things, and enjoyed seeing the places where some of my favorite music was born! Well done, and I STRONGLY reccomend this tour!
