A cracking way to see Liverpool and some of the iconic locations that contributed to The Beatles story. Our guide Damian was fantastic and appeared to enjoy the tour as much as we did. Thanks so much and we will be back to enjoy again!!

The tour was fantastic made more so by our ‘commentator’ and driver, Chloe & Colin. They were brilliant and Chloe was a laugh a minute and got everyone singing! They were so helpful when we made stops and took loads of photos for us.

Absolute must for Beatles fans. A brilliant experience. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable & entertaining throughout.
