This was one of the best sightseeing tours we have been on…and we’ve been on a few big city ones one the past 20 years or so….Chris the tour guide was just unstoppable in his Beatles/Liverpool knowledge, telling his fascinating tales, his brilliant humour….AND musical talents! (what a singer and banjo player!). We don’t want to miss out “Tone” (Tony!) too….he drove us around the city and outskirts brilliantly. Thank you so much for a trip we will remember for years to come….worth every penny! From the cheeky chappy geordie, his wife (who talked to you about her Liverpool college days!) and their daughter!

Great value for money, a must for a trip to Liverpool. Tour guide Chris was spot on, can’t fault him or the driver.

Outstanding guide, lovely city and we travelled at the right pace to get the best experience.

Such good fun… Ann the driver and tour guides are so friendly, knowledgeable and very funny

Fantastic Chris and Tony were so funny and knowledgeable Whole family loved it
