    Amazing tour with the most excellent tour guide ever. Jim turned out to be an encyclopedia of London Rock’n’ roll History, able to entertain and give an interesting perspective from behind the wheel as we snaked around the most amazing alleys and roads of London. A perfect tour for anyone, old or young, with the slightest interest in where great music happened.

    See a lot of historical rock sites and learn about some interesting history. Would have liked to get off of the bus a few more times to allow for better pictures but that was made up for by getting the Abbey Road album cover re-creation. That was an awesome photo op.

    We had a great time exploring The rock n roll sites around London including many past and present homes of rock musicians. The only negative was that I had a bit of a limited view of the sites out the window of the bus and most sites being on the left side of the bus, but overall was a very enjoyable experience. The guide was informative and funny.
