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.
