Great tour for music lovers. Our driver and guide, Ian, was amazing. He gave us tons of great facts. Seeing where the Beatles played their last show and Abbey Road was definitely the highlight. But it was also cool to see the small clubs where bands got their start.

Alistair (Al) was fantastic. Funny, kind and humble together with being a great story teller, knowledgeable about London and music and his passion for teaching, sharing and making sure everyone got the perfect shot when walking across the Abbey Road crosswalk made for a great way to spend a full day. He has so many details to share you will wish you took notes but then would not want to miss the next thing he says. He has visual aids to on his iPad and plays music to give you a hint of the next sight approaching. Allie the driver was a sweetheart too. And zipping and parking all over London is not easy!

Our guide Jim was so knowledgeable about British rock history! He told many engaging stories and it was especially interesting as he played the appropriate song along with his stories as we passed by the building where the events happened. We got in and out of the van a few times to walk to various spots including Abbey Road where he did a great job taking pictures of everybody crossing the road. Our morning tour was a perfect way to start our day before hearing the stones in Hyde Park! I highly recommend this tour.
