Why walk when you can take ‘A Ticket to Ride’
Evening Tour: Spring and Summer only
Exclusively Beatle-related sites (well almost!)
‘Magic, pure magic!’
Your ‘Ticket to Ride’ includes live commentary from a specialist Beatle-guide who re-tells Beatle history as it happened, with music, memorabilia and photographs helping recreate those magic years.
The Beatles story is a tale of two cities; until 1962 they were a Liverpool ‘beat band ‘ but they achieved global dominance once they moved to London. It was London that made the Beatles, directly influencing their artistic development. It was London where they chose to live. Over 50 major Beatles sites are visited on this memorable evening tour, charting the ‘Beatlemania’ years from 1962 to 1969, and their solo years thereafter. No other London Beatle tour covers as many central London sites and locations in a single tour, or in such an entertaining and fun way! This is the perfect way to while-away a Summer’s eve, celebrating 50-years of the ‘Fab Four’, with lots of stops and photo opportunities.

The SGT Small Group Touring Concept is traveling with just 4 - 14 guests per departure. It is our aim to introduce you to the 'real' country and its people, not just ticking the boxes of a standardized route and treating you as an individual and not a number. Our concept allows for a leisurely touring pace and flexibility to get off the beaten track to discover hidden gems. Of course you'll see the major sites but so much more too!
At Special Group Tours, it is our priority that you have the most enjoyable holiday possible. You deserve it!
