Unfortunately this tour did not go ahead due to a large demonstration and the tour guide being unable to reach the pick up point - this was entirely beyond their control. I chose to be reimbursed and was issued with a refund within a few hours due to excellent communication. Incidentally, I have been on this tour before and it was fantastic, would highly recommend it and look forward to booking again in the near future.

Went March 5 and our tour guide was very friendly. Well versed on Rock music including interesting tidbits. Made a rest stop at Bill Wyman's diner of the Rolling Stones and enjoyed a pint. The highlight was stopping at Abbey Road studios. Our guide was very kind and took pictures of the famous cross walk. Great way to take a trip back to the golden years of the London Rock years.

This tour is an absolute must for music lovers! Our guide, Lee, was funny, informative, and helpful in taking photos for us. We visited important sites throughout London, got out of the bus for photos at Garden Lodge (Freddie Mercury's home), Bill Wyman's Sticky Fingers (restaurant), Abbey Road, Paul McCartney's house, and the building where the Beatles last played together live (on the rooftop). We also drove by many important recording studios, and the homes of Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Robbie Williams, Paul McCartney, Freddie Mercury & Mary Austin (another home besides Garden Lodge). We heard stories of all artists ranging from skiffle music to 1970's rock, covering a wide range of artists like Queen, Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Sex Pistols, Carly Simon, Brian Eno, and many more. Lee's sense of humor and vast knowledge made this a fantastic, memorable experience!!
