What people are saying about Liverpool

Thoroughly enjoyed Hop-On Bus experience

Unfortunately due to strong winds boats not running but the bus and guides made up for that - requested refund due to joint ticket and this was processed efficiently, then bought separate ticket for bus - thoroughly enjoyed Liverpool as a short break destination.

Very memorable, staff were friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable

An iconic football club which provided a most memorable sneak peek inside the inner workings and day to day running of the club. Staff were accessible, friendly and more than happy to share their knowledge. Being able to get a first hand look at dressing rooms, the tunnel, get pitch side and experience the dug out was spectacular! An amazing stadium and experience. More than rivals the stadium tour of FC Barcelona. We even saw staff at a local pub a couple of hours after the tour. They remembered us and were still happy to talk all things Liverpool FC and football!
