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!

Amazing! If you're lucky enough to get driver Tony and Chris the guide you are very lucky indeed! It was a miserable wet day in Liverpool when we boarded that but but boy we were laughing and singing all along the route! Peaky Blinder Chris is a star!!! Not only did we get Beatles landmarks and history but also other snippets of information about this beautiful city. It more than made up for our ferry crossing being cancelled.

recommended bus tour of Liverpool, with amusing live commentary, jokes and humour from our guide, which made the whole experience very memorable and enjoyable. We were concerned we would get wet if it was raining, but they laid on a non-open double decker bus in case of rain, so don't be put off or cancel if weather is wet.
