The tour was extremely informative and enjoyable. There was a lot of information and facts I liked how the tour was set up in a chronological order of how the band met and then progressed. Even the non avid Beatle Fans in my group enjoyed the tour. I’m sure we spent longer than the 90 minutes suggested as there was just so much to experience and absorb. The accompanying audio was very easy to use and allowed individuals to complete the tour at their own pace. Although there were other people participating at the same time I did not feel that the tour was overcrowded.

Really enjoyed our time at the Beatles museum, loads of time spent wandering around looking at the memorabilia. Many stairs to climb but well worth the hike. Toilets are on the top floor for those who may need to use them.

Found it very good , seeing the memorabilia and the room reconstructions of cavern club , you learn a lot about the Beatles

Thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend. Lots to do and see

Tour was great, great knowledge of the tour guide.
