    It was a fantastic experience. We had the best guide ever, Tony was amazing with a wicked sense of humour that kept everyone well entertained. I didn’t want to get off the bus and can highly recommend this tour, if you’re lucky to be on Tony’s bus, you will have an absolute laugh as well as learn so much about the city and Beatles. Top marks for Tony and Smoggy for a brilliant tour, amazing guys!

    Very informative, with little snippets that made one laugh and probably and which have never probably been heard about outside Liverpool! Unfortunately because of COVID it isn’t a hop on/off but as the driver and guy doing the talk had such a great long standing understanding of each other I wouldn’t have wanted to get off anyway! !

    A great way to see the city and learn about the Beatles. Friendly and knowledgeable driver, Anne. Informative and fun guide Chris. Have previously done this tour and the guide shared time between upstairs and downstairs but not this time, only stayed upstairs. This was a shame for those downstairs as sometimes his commentary wasn’t easy to hear.
