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

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
