The Beatles visited Los Angeles in 1964, 1965 and 1966 and left behind a facinating history now available to the public by way of a unique guided tour.

Starting from Santa Monica and ending in Hollywood, Gillian Lomax, British-born Beatles news reporter on L.A. radio stations 97.1 KLSX and 95.5 KLOS, takes fans on a three-to-four-hour "Magical History Tour" through the lives of John, Paul, George and Ringo and their wild times in the City of the Angels.

Gillian's "A Magical History Tour" includes a visit to their local homes, recording studios and popular hang-out spots. Among the tour highlights are the beach house where John Lennon spent his "lost" weekend (sharing the pad at various times with Ringo, Richard Harris and Harry Nilsson), the studio where John produced Nilsson's notorious "Pussycats" album, and the house in Bel Air where where all four Beatles met Elvis Presley. 

Each tour is $65 per person and usually starts at 10 a.m. at a designated meeting area.  

The BBC has booked the tour Saturday, Nov. 7 to cover it in a story, but spaces are still available.
