We’ve just done many tours in several European cities in Italy, France, and the UK, and John Bruce was by far the best guide we’ve had! You won’t find a kinder gentleman, and he was very knowledgeable, and entertaining as well. We luckily had a small group and John was able to tailor the tour specifically to us. It was really a great tour of Liverpool!
