Great way to see the highlights of Liverpool. Jimmy, Tony and Kim were all welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable. Very good value for money and totally recommend it to anyone visiting here. Buses run every half hour for hop off and on. Last pickup is at 16:50pm. One ticket allows next day as long as it is within 24 hours.

it has been brilliant the last 3 times weve done it with 3 different guides but i think damien tops them all. they are all very knowledgable and entertaining and kai is a lovely little lad that waves at every trip what an experience.

Tried both experiences. Excellent value and both tour guides amusing and informative. The time passed so quickly. So many interesting anecdotes and places visited from the top of an open blues in the sunshine!
