We did the morning tour with Colin who is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the rock scene in London. You will see a lot of things and areas that you won't see on the regular guided tours. While we are both big Beatles fans I am a huge Clash fan as well and Colin knew a ton of information... More

I did the full day version of this tour on July 11 with Bob as our guide. It was a highlight of my trip to London and I can't recommend it highly enough to anyone with an interest in music history. Bob took care to ask everyone about their musical interests to make sure he catered for all, and he... More

I'm a disabled French traveller. On the Tourist Office of Great Britain online shop, I booked in advance several visits such as the Sex, Drugs and Rock and Roll Tour of London as it was stated: This bus tour is available for disabled people. With my experience, I prefer to inform myself by sending an email. The company London Rock... More

Firstly, I was running late due to another external tour booked to go to Newmarket running late. Made it back 20 minutes late, Bob was waiting for me in a car,and caught up with the minibus tour,with Colin as host. My adult son was waiting on the bus to catch up with me. Was a brilliant tour, very informative, went... More

Ian was our driver and tour guide. He drove us around Westminster, Chelsea, Belgravia and other 'musical' neighborhoods, where the famous and infamous were known to live and play -- and even practise -- much less meet and greet in gritty little pubs secreted away from their sitting publics. Needless to say, Ian, an old Teddy-boy himself, knew all the... More

We enjoyed the Rock Music Tour for the most part. We saw a lot of different London neighbourhoods and many different music sites. Our guide, Bob was very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, he seemed to imply that he doesn't care much for Australians. He made several Anti-Aussie comments during the trip including that we were unlikely to get good service in a... More

The tour was a birthday treat for my husband..thinking he'd go with a friend. I went with him in the end and was SO pleased I did. Bob was our guide and what he doesn't know about the music business isn't worth knowing. We were on the minibus for nearly 4 hours as the traffic was bad that day and... More

We took their Beatles tour while in London last week and absolutely loved it! Our guide, Colin, was very knowledgable and exceeded our expectations on the sites we saw and the background info he knew. We got to see a whole other side to the Beatles that we never knew before. Where they lived, who the interacted with (Hendrix, the... More

This tour was worth the price and very laid back. Steve (the awesome tour guide) picked us up from Cockspur street which is where you can also buy cheap tickets to all the other fun things to do in London. We got on our little tour bus which had air conditioning and sat down for our 3 1/2 hour tour.... More

Went on the 2pm tour with Bob on the 29th May. He made it very enjoyable and definitely knew his stuff. Would recommend to any music fans.
