Our guide was John and he was extremely knowledgeable. The tour was well over 2 hours and we all learned that there is more to Liverpool than the Beatles. Some wonderful stories and ideas of where to find some interesting places to visit during our stay. And such amazing value for money

Only my wife and I had booked for the tour but Matthew went ahead anyway As there were only two of us, we were able to cover more than had originally been planned, including the library and museum. Despite only having two people on the tour, Matthew still spent 2.5 hours with us. His enthusiasm and knowledge was fantastic We have experienced a few other walking tours (inc Berlin, London) and this tour was as good as any of the others I would recommend a walking tour if visiting any new city. If you are visiting Liverpool, I could not recommend this tour enough, not Matthew as a guide. Fantastic value for money

This was a really good walking tour. Our guide Allan was interesting and knowledgeable. He told us plenty of interesting facts about the Beatles and paced the tour well so that you did not get fed up or stayed in one place for too long. This tour was a really good way to explore Liverpool and see some of the key sites including the two Cathedrals.
