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.

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!
