What people are saying about Liverpool

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!

Absolutely brilliant evening of ghostly entertainment in the company of Lucy aka Chilla Black and her ‘brother’. So much fun, so friendly and really included the whole group in their tales of ghosts, ghouls and horror. Would thoroughly recommend this event.

An excellent way to get your bearings in Liverpool. Roy was a great guide, very patient and gave lots of interesting information. Highly recommended.

Well guided, well informed guide that took the time to show us all the nooks in Liverpool regarding the music scene.

We had our own personnel tour of Liverpool. Was amazing Thank you x
