An excellent visit with my 8 year old great great nephew. An interesting question and answer session with Steve McMahon followed by the automated tour of Anfield which was not hurried. Plenty of time to look at everything. Great value for money.

As a United fan since Munich it wouldn’t be anything else but excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed it and the tour guides, Mark and John were humorous and knowledgeable. Would recommend to any football fans.

Great way to see the things in Liverpool you would miss. Take comfy shoes !!

Would reccomend to anyone, well worth a visit and good value for money.

Had an incredible trip to North Wales! Frank was an amazing tour guide!
