Both trips were enjoyable and very informative. We sat in the middle section and enjoyed a coffee while we enjoyed the boat trip. We learnt a lot about Liverpool on the bus trip, the bus driver and guide were very friendly. We did the full tour first then used the hop on/off to visit places we wanted to see.

Riverboat cruise was wonderful. The dialogue was informative and the ferry ride calming and relaxing. The hop on hop off bus ride was a great way to see fhe city with the added advantage of having bus stops throughout the city where you can hop on or hop off bus.

Comprehensive tour of a lot of points of interest but the highlight for us was Mathew street, the Cavern and the music bars, brilliant. Our guide was Roy and he was brilliant, knew so much and such a nice guy. I think we were very lucky to have him as our guide.

The bus was fantastic, excellent knowledge of Liverpool well worth the money

Had visitors from Portsmouth and they loved the tour
