A wonderful city tour. Our guide, Mohammed, is the best we have ever had on a tour. An absolute recommendation and he deserves at least 10 stars. He knows Liverpool very well and can give a lot of background information about the well-known attractions and countless insider tips. GetYourGuide is recommended, Mohammed is a MUST as a tour guide.
