The perfect walking tour for anyone interested in Rocknroll. Evren shared stories very passionately and had some great ancodotes, and even had personal stories to tell. The ending in a gorgeous pub where we all shared music stories was a nice touch. Highly Recommended!

Colin was incredible! He has such a wealth of knowledge and the tour was very interesting and had a great pace. It was also a wonderful way to see many parts of London in an afternoon. I would highly recommend this tour—you won’t regret it!

Evren is a local who really knows his stuff! He really brings the music scene to life in a fun way and shows all the secret tips that you wouldn't learn otherwise. The tour should be on your must-do list for a London visit.

Good and informative tour with a funny guide (Ian). Unfortunately, due to the high volume of traffic in London, there are sometimes long waiting times, but still very good and happy to do so again.

Ian was such a wonderful guide! We highly recommend spending the day with him!
