What people are saying about Liverpool

Great experience ,fascinating insights,warm & informative welcome

I had made the tour two years ago with our grandson but my brother,visiting from the East Midlands was keen to see 'Anfield' close up.I had feared that the self-help audio tour would be second best rather than experienced guides;but they were there ,anyway, with genuine good humour & a passion for LFC.Behind the scenes facilities are amazing.The whole stadium is so clean.The sheer scale is wmqzing ,especially seen from the top of the Main Stand.No one is hurriedor shepherded, lots of photo-ops. Arrangements were seam-less & straight-forward;can recommend 'Get your guide'

Liverpool Football Club: Museum and Stadium Tour Reviewed by Anonymous, 23/08/2019

Fun, interesting, fast paced all-rounder.

If you want to get a quick look at the best of North Wales, look no further. Our driver/guide Alan, was friendly, funny and entertaining during the entire trip. He loaded our brains with a plethora of interesting information about the local sights, history and culture. The entire trip was a day filled with adventure and fun. Though fast paced, therefore not for the laid back tourist, if you can muster a little endurance, you will mot be disappointed (weather permitting ;-) All in all, a trip well worth taking.

My son said it was excellent & hilarious, with the Paddy men, he 9 yrs

We both thoroughly enjoyed it, packed with information, especially about Bill Shankley, but I had info for them, as he lived next to my great uncle in WORKINGTON, managing WORKINGTON REDS, my fathers cousin told me this two weeks before we went on our hol to the City. My grandfather & mam was from there. The bus was on time both leaving the City & coming back from Anfield, will definitely recommend the trip & join it next time we down. Reasonable price as well, well done.

Liverpool Football Club: Museum and Stadium Tour Reviewed by FRANCIS, 02/09/2019

This is a fantastic tour, well worth the money.

This tour was booked to celebrate my dad’s 93rd birthday. He’s been a Liverpool supporter all his life and he loved every minute of the tour. The two stewards in the press room are comedy gold. The good thing is you are allowed to take your own time around the stadium. A great time was had by all of us, even more who hates football.
