Since 1996, I've been going to rock concerts and visiting musical landmarks in cities like New York, London, Los Angeles, Paris, and Seattle. For me, there is no more interesting American music story than that of The Ramones.

This was a great tour. Brian is very nice and knowledgeable about the Ramones and New York in general. We stumbled upon a ramen festival and he asked if I wanted to stop, of course I did! It was a fun and interesting tour and I recommend it to anyone interested in the Ramones or who wants to learn more about them.

This was a rare opportunity to understand the complexities of The Ramones whilst in their back yard! Brian's knowledge of the band and their history was excellent and really brought to life the areas we visited. Thank You.

Terrific tour! Brian is highly knowledgeable about the Ramones . He provides details and anecdotes not normally known. The visit to former houses where some of the Ramones lived and to areas they frequented or played (like the former CBGB club) made one feel linked to the history and lives of the Ramones. Brian was friendly easy to chat with and also provided great info on good places to eat in NYC. Highly recommend!!

Hey Ho, Let's Go! As a life-long Ramones fan for 35+ years, concert goer, and visitor to the museum in Berlin, I was very impressed with Brian's deep understanding and knowledge of the band. Walking around to the different sites and seeing first-hand how it all came together certainly gave me a fuller appreciation into the inner workings of the band, their management and supporters. I learned a lot of new facts and insights. Well worth it for any life-long fan or those just introduced to the Ramones.

I highly recommend this tour to any fan! Brian was incredibly knowledgeable and seemed to really have a passion for what he does. It was a really great experience and it was really cool to get to see the sights in person. He seems to know a lot not just about The Ramones, but New York in general.
