Steve arrived on time, after checking with us a day before the tour, and right off the bat was friendly and cordial that we felt very comfortable. We went on a tour down memory lane to some of the locations that the “rock gods” were. The best part was his stories about the people and places and circumstances that were part of the tour. In addition, Steve provided many interesting facts about London as we drove around that are away from the “beaten path”. Steve was patient and we never felt rushed, as a matter of fact a two hour tour became a three hour tour (sorry Steve)! In all, it was a fun experience and nostalgic and informative. Thank you, Steve

Likely the best thing we'll do in London! Incredibly charismatic and knowledgeable. Stephen made our trip absolutely amazing, and we got to see all the most amazing rock history sights in London. Also, if you want an Abbey Lane picture, he is the master! I cannot recommend this enough.

This was a surprise birthday present from my partner and it did not disappoint. Steve was very friendly and extremely knowledgable with a great sense of humour. Being a Rolling Stones fan I learnt so much from him. Every stop off is not rushed, he encourages you to take photos and is more than happy to take photos for you. Sitting in the road recreating a stones photo outside Edith Grove where Mick & Keith shared a flat in the early days…walking the crossing at Abbey Road…seeing Freddy Mercury & Paul McCartney’s homes are just a few of the moments I’ll never forget Thank you Steve for an unforgettable experience, Ian & Cass x

Spent a great afternoon with Steve touring London and learning fun music history. We did this tour our first day in London and it set the bar high for the rest of the trip. Steve was so fun to hang out with and very knowledgeable. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this tour or book it again on my next visit.

Fantastic day! Really knowledgeable about his music and with him being a black cab driver obviously knows his way around London. Thoroughly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend it to anyone! - Michael Warren
