Jim was an amazing tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and obviously cares about the music scene. There were so many places to see and stories to hear about all music heroes. I felt comfortable in the van and thought Jim was a terrific London driver navigating the sometimes small London streets. The music was perfect for every location. I would have liked to explore a few more areas on foot. I will Recommend.

This was a great tour, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Clive was a great guide, very knowledgable. The only minor feedback I have is for maybe the vehicle windows to be cleaned prior to the tour as sometimes you're taking photos of places through the glass as you're driving along, the windows were quite dirty.

Great experience, our driver Ian was lovely and knew a lot about the places and artists he spoke about, so interesting to see London in a different way and routes normal tour buses wouldn’t take or hear about the facts you wouldn’t have known before

Our guide Ian did a fantastic tour. Very knowledgeable and personable. It was great to see the history of our favorite music legends. And seeing Jimmy Page himself outside his house as we drove by was a bonus!.

Colin is a great story teller, he was really into telling us the stories and wanted us to experience as much as possible. I leaned so much on this tour and yea, got my picture taken at Abby Road.
