Additional Information

The 1960s in London were vibrant, thrilling, and iconic; I know because I experienced it first-hand! I’d be thrilled to guide you through the emblematic locations of that extraordinary decade, where the Beatles and other celebrities resided, socialised, and made music.

This is a comprehensive guide from A to Z detailing the Beatles’ speedy rise to stardom from their arrival in London in 1962 to their final concert as a group on the roof of their Saville Row headquarters in 1969. During our tour in the traditional London black taxi, we’ll have a stopover at the Abbey Road recording studios and the renowned zebra crossing (crosswalk), which is now a Grade II listed site.

Every tour with Capital Cabbie is unique – you can share your interests with me and I’ll incorporate them in the tour. My aim is to offer you and your group an unforgettable sightseeing adventure. Flexibility is our guiding principle: I will personalise your tour according to your schedule, speed, and interests.

From Ringo to Yoko…. David Knows His Stuff! - David offered a great Beatles tour. He was knowledgeable and engaging about the Beatles as well as other musicians from the era. He offered opportunities around our interests and was very helpful with photos and even sent us the photos he took throughout the tour as a follow up.. Highly Recommended!

A brilliant Beatles tour! - We had a fantastic time with David on our Beatles London tour. It was great to see so many iconic locations connected with the fab four! David had clearly done a huge amount of research. He gave fascinating insights into the significance of each site and fluently linked it to the rich rock and roll history of London. Not only was David, funny, incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the Beatles in London, he was able to speak from his experiences in the swinging 60s and it was great to hear from someone who had clearly lived it! Real highlights were soaking up the atmosphere on a circuit of Soho, seeing John Lennon's house and reenacting the iconic Abbey Road cover art outside the legendary studios. Thank you for a great day out David - highly recommended!

Over the top service & your. - David takes his job seriously. He is SO well prepared, SO knowledgeable, and he sincerely wants to impress you … in a sincere, humble fashion. He is kind & considerate. We’re from Texas & he added a non-Beatles, Texas historical stop , just for us. We were all very pleased, and HIGHLY recommend, if you love the Beatles & English Rock & Roll history.

Must do!!!! - We were only in London for 2 days before leaving on a British Isles cruise. Our cruise line cancelled the Liverpool stop. My husband was very disappointed that he could not take in Beatles sites in their hometown. Not going to Liverpool was actually a blessing in disguise! We booked a half day Beatles tour with David and it was beyond our wildest dreams. David was absolutely wonderful. We saw many Beatles hot spots in London, learned some inside facts about the fab four, and were delighted with David. I can not adequately describe how pleased we are that we booked this tour with David as our guide. This is totally worth the money. Don't hesitate to book with David. You will not regret it.

London Beatles Tour Must Do - This is one tour you don't want to miss when in London. David our tour guide was so knowledgeable on the Beatles. He felt like a friend we knew for a long time. He was our highlight of our trip to London. We would have gave him 10 stars if it was available.

Magical History Tour - It was our first time in London and it couldn’t have gone better! David was an amazing tour guide who has a great personality and sense of humor. He is very knowledgeable on the Beatles and amazed my family and I on every bit of detail he included in the history tour. He provided snacks and water for us which was a very kind gesture. He also took plenty of photos for us and allowed us to visit the gift shop at Abbey Road Studios. One of my favorite aspects of the tour was his storytelling and visual representations.

Book it now! - The Beatles tour was absolutely awesome. We just can’t say enough. This was one of the best tours we have taken. David was not only a tour guide but a outstanding host. He connected with each member of our group. We had a very fun experience, and is one of the first things we share with people who ask us how we enjoyed our trip. We look forward to our next opportunity to go on another tour with him.
