I did this tour awhile back and had the best time. Gillian (Gil) is an awesome host and gives a great insight tour of all things Beatles in the L.A. area. Being somewhat of a Beatle's geek I thought I knew a thing or two. Gillian, being from Liverpool, has tons of knowledge and is very well connected on the... More

If you happen to be in the LA area and if you are interested in The Beatles, make sure that you join the Magical History Tour guided by Gillian. Gillian will take you to all sorts of different places related to The Beatles. Very informative and great fun too. A highly recommend tour.

This is such a fun way to spend the day! Gillian is a delightful hostess and guide. Our daughter gifted her Dad this tour for Fathers day, and as a huge Beatle fan, he loved it! (We all did). I think our favorite highlight, was Lake Shrine. Who knew all of this Beatle history existed right here in our back... More

I brought 2 friends (and Beatles fans) from Holland on this lovely and informative tour of Beatles' sites in LA. Gillian is a fount of knowledge when it comes to all things Beatles. Her narrative is full of detailed stories and information. It is accompanied by a carefully constructed sound track (on her car CD player), so that the songs... More

As someone who has been on guided Beatles tours of London, Liverpool and New York City, I can assure you that there are certainly a lot of Beatles sights to be seen, also in the LA area, and this tour is worth every cent. Gillian has met a number of Beatles people during her time and also as a news... More

I went with 2 friends last year and we had a superb time. Since then I have made sure when we get relatives or friends over from Britain we hook them up with Gillian's magical tour.( last time was April) It's a true L.A. Beatles day out.( Hosted by a genuine "Scouser" or Liverpool person) If you are not particularly... More

Being a huge Beatles fan, a dear friend of mine treated me to this "Magical Tour." Boy was I in for a treat! First, our tour host Gillian Lomax was the perfect guide! Due to the fact she was involved with the "Breakfast With the Beatles" show, her voice was already associated with Beatles news for us locals in Southern... More

I took the Magical History Tour in 2010. Being a huge Beatles fan, it was a must. An adventure filled day packed with sites and tons of information is sure to delight a Beatles fan of any age! Gillian is charming and informative on all things Beatles!

Our visit to Los Angeles in October 2010 was made even better when we took Gillian’s ‘A Magical history Tour.’ Very personable, and quite knowledgeable on the Beatles (and their friends/fellow musicians), Gillian’s tour was very enjoyable and broadened our knowledge of the Beatles. A highlight was our stop at the Self-Realization Fellowship Lake Shrine, where a memorial for George... More

In October 2013 I came over to LA for a holiday from Amsterdam. I'm a huge Beatles fan and had heard of this Beatles tour in Europe. I already took the Beatles tour in Liverpool, London and Hamburg. I was very glad to take a private tour with Gillian Lomax and I had a wonderful time!! I would definately reccomend... More
