What people are saying about Liverpool
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.
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!
The day started all staff in all areas very helpful was a little bit cold on the day but you cannot help the British weather. Information on the boat very helpful , enjoyed the u boat experience then we popped on too the open top bus and guide on the mic not only did he know what he was talking about he also had a very friendly personality and the beautiful city everything was just a great experience and I will be visiting Liverpool again and using this company again thank you for sharing your fabulous with us .
I bought the ticket on the morning of my tour. Staff, tour guides and people in Liverpool are fantastic. I will definitely be returning later this year. Liverpool is the hidden gem of England and the Mersey an oasis of beauty and ambience.
