    This tour was excellent and Colin our driver and guide certainly knew his stuff. He was very informative and covered many rock star stories, houses, apartments and also where certain songs were written and recorded. All in all it was a fascinating 3.5 hours well worth it and we would highly recommend..

    This was a really fun tour and a great way to see the neighborhoods in London while hearing about all of the amazing rock music that has emerged from there. Our tour guide Lee was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable - we enjoyed his stories and his visual aids. The van was in excellent condition and very comfortable. The only drawback to this tour is not enough music! We would have enjoyed a bit less talking and more just listening to the music while taking in the sights.

    This was a fascinating and very personal tour around the sites that helped make rock n' roll. Only about 8 of us in the very comfortable mini bus, so plenty of time to personalise the commentary around the interests of the participants. Lee was a fantastic guide - great humour, really personable and so knowledgeable. What he doesn't know about the music industry literally is not worth knowing. He brought in anecdotes on all sorts of musicians and genres, plus also some interesting, non-music facts about London. A great way to spend an afternoon and highly recommended.
