We have booked for the red route bus tour for a family of 5 and we have thoroughly enjoyed the trip! Lisa our guide was amazing! She is very friendly, knowledgeable, lively and even accommodated us straight away even though we were late for our booking. It’s worth the money and price was good however we didn’t know there were discounted rates for students and NHS workers which was too late for us to refund.

This tour was awesome… Our guide was knowledgeable, charming, and funny. He had us laughing the whole time. We were able to get off the bus to take pictures at the Penny Lane sign and Strawberry Field. I highly recommend this tour!

Plenty of room on board, great views, very informative. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

A very nice tour. The guide and the driver were excellent. Worth the money.

It was a great story well told and the music all fell in line with it
