Annie, our tour guide, was well-informed and entertaining. We weren’t expecting the light show which was superb. As locals, we thought we knew all there was to know about the Liver Building but we leaned lots! Definitely worth a visit and don’t be put off by the stairs as they were fine!

We were made to feel welcome from the start and were looked after well throughout the exciting tour by the tour guide. She could have done with slowing her speech down a little however as it wasn't always easy to hear what she was saying. There are also over 100 steps to climb from the 10th floor upwards which would make it hard for some people. The 4D presentation inside the clock tower was truly spectacular but some people could find it a little disorientating. Overall, however I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who wanted to find out more about Liverpool's recent history and also the history of this building since its conception at the beginning of the last century.

I was born and bread in Liverpool. I decided to do some of the touristy things you don’t normally do when you live in a place. This tour was more than I expected and would recommend if your interested in Liverpool history. The tour guide was more than knowledgable. She had qualifications that exceeded for a tour guide.
