    It was a great tour and our guide was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. The weather was tremendous so the views were superb. The video that was shown of the city over the years was fantastic. I live in the city and still found it a very enjoyable thing to do.

    Enjoyed this trip and don't worry it's not as steep or as scary as it sounds. The views were brilliant - we could see all the way to the mountains in Snowdonia, Wales, and it was fascinating to hear the legends of the two birds. Our only tiny complaint was that it sometimes felt a bit awkward waiting for the lifts - a bit too quiet? We thought perhaps some typical Liverpudlian music, Beatles maybe, in the background might just serve to break the ice, particularly on the way up. The video was totally amazing and really moving. Thank you to our guide, she really knew her stuff - sorry can't remember her name.
