It was nice to do a walking city tour through London, we went through spots we never even thought we'd see! We really enjoyed ourselves!

I liked the interactive aspect, and how the path took you through nice parts of town. It was interesting, but it might be nice to focus on lesser known bands too. Although, I can see why this might be less interesting to others. Thanks

Мне как человеку не знавшему ничего о роке было интересно прости по знаменитым местам где записывались великие музыканты. Понравилось аудио сопровождение. Не хватало больше интерактива, хотя бы маленькие вопросы на каждом из шагов. Главный минус - когда подходишь к месту назначения, вылетает на начальный экран экскурсии, приходилось, заново все прокручивать, на 25 раз это бесило) По ценообразованию немного дороговато, 10£ за это было бы не жалко отдать.
The Royal Albert Hall is a concert hall on the northern edge of South Kensington, London. One of the UK's most treasured and distinctive buildings, it is held in trust for the nation and managed by a registered charity which receives no government funding. It can seat 5,272.Since the hall's opening by Queen Victoria in 1871, the world's leading artists from many performance genres have appeared on its stage. It is the venue for the Proms concerts, which have been held there every summer since 1941. It is host to more than 390 shows in the main auditorium annually, including classical, rock and pop concerts, ballet, opera, film screenings with live orchestral accompaniment, sports, awards ceremonies, school and community events, and charity performances and banquets. A further 400 events are held each year in the non-auditorium spaces. Over its 150 year history the hall has hosted people from various fields, including meetings by Suffragettes, speeches from Winston Churchill and Albert Einstein, fights by Frank Bruno, exhibition bouts by Muhammad Ali, and concerts from performers such as Eric Clapton and Shirley Bassey.The hall was originally supposed to have been called the Central Hall of Arts and Sciences, but the name was changed to the Royal Albert Hall of Arts and Sciences by Queen Victoria upon laying the Hall's foundation stone in 1867, in memory of her husband, Prince Albert, who had died six years earlier. It forms the practical part of a memorial to the Prince Consort; the decorative part is the Albert Memorial directly to the north in Kensington Gardens, now separated from the Hall by Kensington Gore.
