This tour was amazing, we had the tour guides Tony and Anne. Both were very friendly and even took photos for us. The tour guide was very informative about the Beatles and the city in general, they really made the experience with laughs and sing alongs. Would highly recommend the experience to anyone, thank you!!

Excellent value for money. There was nothing our guide Tommy didn’t know about the Beatles. His knowledge of Liverpool was excellent too. It was a bundle of fun from beginning to end. We had a couple of photo stops and sang a lot of Beatles numbers. The driver was very accomplished too. Negotiating down residential streets was quite a feat. All in all a great experience but you do need to be a Beatles fan!

Due to covid restrictions we were unable to hop on and off or use headphones however this did not stop us enjoying the tour. We had a guide, Tony, who gave a commentary throughout the tour which was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the city and its landmarks as well as being very funny. He made a point of connecting with everyone on the bus and involving them. The driver Anne also did a great job getting us close to points of interest and navigating busy streets and roadworks.
