What people are saying about Liverpool
The museum is chock-full of memorabilia, most of it in the hands of the Best family. Very little duplication with The Beatles Story exhibition at Albert Dock so well worthwhile. We spent a full 2 hours there. The walking tour was also excellent and very informative. Loads more info than you could ever pick up from reading books and reviews (well done Doug!) The only hiccup was the meeting time - which was published as 11.30 but should have read 1pm! The website should have been updated to clarify that. Otherwise - great!
Our guides Rob and Patrick had such in depth knowledge of Liverpool and the Beatles history, not to mention a fabulous sense of humour. We all learned so much. I’ve been walking around all weekend with a smile on my face. One point I’d like to make is that Rob always made sure we had photo opportunities at key historic locations and even took the photos for us to make sure we all got in them. I will definitely use your tour company again and certainly recommend you. Thank you for a great holiday experience
It was a great tour of the impressive Anfield stadium, including the players' changing rooms, executive suite, the museum with countless trophies and memorabilia, and that magnificent Champions League trophy. The staff were amazingly helpful, very polite and went out of their way (all of them) to help you and make your stay memorable and most enjoyable. It was good value for money. Even queuing to view the trophy, for an hour, did not bother us. Dr George Williams Bradford
This tour fulfilled a lifelong dream for me and it will live long in my memory. The tour was able to be done at basically your own pace and proved it to be great value for money. As a Liverpool fan, there were many highlights during the tour, but I would certainly recommend this tour to any sports fan. All of the staff at Liverpool LFC were very professional and hospitable.
We went to the Beatles Museum and all was very nice, there were so many places very interestings like Sgt.Peppers room, with all the dresses of each Beatle and the story, and the Imagine room, that was very emocional, we've learn a lot about the fab4 of Liverpool! Without question we will return!
