I grew up in Southern California, and I never thought that LA could be a place that's filled with Beatles History. Gillian did a great job of opening my eyes to places I've seen before but never realized how truly wonderful they are. I've been a Beatles fan all my life, and I have to say that the Tour was...

This was great for a Beatles fan like me wanting to visit places where they played in concert like the Hollywood Bowl (close your eyes and imagine!) and where they stayed like the house George wrote about in his song "Blue Jay Way"on Magical Mystery Tour. Her knowledge about the group and all the people she has met who were... More

My wife and I took Gillian's tour on our first trip to LA and were blown away by the fascinating places and Beatles connections which taught me so much. As a Beatles historian and author, I loved every minute of it, and even though it was supposed to be about 4 hours it ended up being about 8 hours as... More

Gillian's LA Beatles tour was terrific! My whole family went, including my 2 kids age 9 and 14 (big Beatles fans, too). We all had a great time! I highly recommend this tour if you are a Beatles fan and are in LA. Gillian is lots of fun and shared lots of stories about the Beatles in LA.

I took my boyfriend on the tour for his birthday. He is a huge Beatles fan and it was so fun to see him trade trivia and Beatles knowledge with Gillian. There was so much to see and learn on this fun tour!

I took this tour a couple of years ago and I was so pleased to see how the day was filled with little "Beatle related" surprises which I can't give up. You're going to have to take the tour to understand, but I can say that our Hostess, Gillian is a such a character and is extremely knowledgable regarding the... More

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
