Perfect guide for rock of London - Ian is the perfect dude for a rock & roll tour. We appreciated his knowledge, humor and ability to address all the music favorites of our group. He’s well practiced in navigating the streets of London and took full advantage of the quiet of a Sunday morning.

What a great tour! - Highly recommend! This was a great tour and out guide was outstanding. He times the music perfectly with the stops and took a great picture of us crossing the famed Abbey Road. This was fun and there was great music. Really enjoyed this tour, take it, you won’t be disappointed. Minimal walking. Two bathroom breaks along the way. Nice little coach with AC. Marshal speaker was a great touch. Memorable and fun stories.

Fantastic musical tour - An excellent tour. Colin really knew his stuff and we enjoyed all the tales of soho in the 60’s, Islington punk venues, Amy’s Camden and then a visit to Abbey Rd to recreate the iconic crossing. I would highly recommend. Thank you for a great morning!

Fabulous tour!!!<br/> Our guide knew... - <p>Fabulous tour!!!<br/> Our guide knew EVERYTHING about the London of the sixties, when I rocked out to the Beatles, Stones . . . and then Queen . . . it was so much fun! Took us off the beaten track to see Freddie Mercury's home and more obscure sites that suited our 'summer of love' interests! He also recommended a visit to 'Trident Studios' - and we thank him for this suggestion. Wish we could remember our guide's name . . . he was the best!!</p>
