The Guide was ok but it was the first time pairing with the driver. The driver didn’t knew where to slow down or where he could speed up, so we pass through all the spots too fast.

The guide was great and very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the rock history and the added touch of playing music on the bus that was reflective of what we were seeing.

This was a nice ride through London. The van has huge windows so you can see everything easily even though you're in a vehicle, and it makes stops at all the places you'd want to get out and grab a photo. Clive was our host and he was fantastic. He looked like Eric Clapton which was a bonus.

Booked this tour for my music mad son and brother in law. Unfortunately the van broke down but rather than cancel the guide persevered on foot! The boys said it was amazing, the guide knew so much and they went to so many places and learnt so much! Highlight for my boy was of course Abbey Road - he hasn’t stopped talking about it. Amazing thank you for giving them a great experience :-)

Ian was a superb guide to the rock and roll history of London! He was so funny and knew the fine details of the music and musicians’ history well beyond pointing out the sites. I loved how this tour was like a rock history master class. The assumption going in was you knew the music and you knew the rock stars. So we spent the time on the fine details. This is a must-do if you are a rock music fan going to London. Ask for Ian for the best of this superlative tour through London.

Super fun and informative tour. Ian was ghastly fun and informative. Perfect tour guide while still being full of piss and vinegar in a fun kind of way. A man who does not suffer fools but entertains at every turn. Plus he looks like Peter Noonan. I loved seeing Paul McCartney's office and London home and the outside of the church where he married Linda. Great day.

My man Ian sure knew his stuff! He made the trip very memorable with anecdotes about who played and partied with whom and where they lived and played while they were here. Hard to believe how much great music comes from one city!
