Steve was a great guide - very knowledgeable and engaging. The bus was comfortable and we saw Paul McCartney's office as well as a former home where one of his fans got into his house "through the bathroom window." Hence, the windows now have iron bars on them! We also heard stories about Elton John, The Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, Led Zepplin, etc. We drove by Amy Winehouse's home where there were still items fans had left outside in memory of her and her great talent. Overall, I would highly recommend it. There's also an afternoon tour that we didn't go on that covered different artists that the morning tour didn't cover. Each tour lasts about three hours.
