Jim was an amazing tour guide. He was so knowledgeable and obviously cares about the music scene. There were so many places to see and stories to hear about all music heroes. I felt comfortable in the van and thought Jim was a terrific London driver navigating the sometimes small London streets. The music was perfect for every location. I would have liked to explore a few more areas on foot. I will Recommend.

Loved this tour!! The guides made it extremely easy by booking the transportation to Liverpool from London. Tickets to the Beatles Story before the bus tour was great and an added bonus we didn’t expect to have. Our tour guide was amazing as well - full of jokes and great stories - I believe his name was either Dan or Dennis. Highly recommend this tour for any Beatles fan!

Had a fantastic time, Food was delicious, the singer was great, and we enjoyed lots of dancing. Was lovely looking at all the lights of London as we went along. Staff were brilliant.

The guide was excellent! He was knowledgeable and allowed us ample time to take photos. I would highly recommend this guide and tour.

Conor was amazing! Great clubs and places are included.
