    I was entertained by some brilliant actors

    These actors was so good they left you hanging on to there every word and sucked into the tails of Liverpool’s dark and interesting side. It’s tragedies murder and mental breakdowns all gave interesting hearing. Plus the acting was of a high quality as they tried to encourage very one to take part in some interesting ways. They make you feel empathy sad and horrified about all the ghosts that lerk around. They brought the tails alive with the props and scenery plus some bangers. They answered any questions around if any was asked. Highly recommend it.

    The Girls were excellent and the tour very interesting. We went on the Hope St tour 07/06.2019 and although it was raining for the whole tour we found it very interesting. I went to school in Rodney St from 1961-1967 and never knew the shivering history of the street. I was a little disappointed that, as advertised the hiding place of Hitlers half brother was not mentioned, and we didn't finish off at the Belvedere, but as it was raining maybe it was cut a little short. Otherwise well worth it.

    Spooky, Funny and very entertaining evening

    We took the tour on Friday 31st May 2019 two friend from Malta. Brother and sister entertained us from start to finish. We were always looking forward for the next stop. The Brother was very hyper and loved the way he even entertained himself to make us feel at ease. As we say in have to enjoy it so people can enjoy it with you. Very well done....would recommend to all especially a group of friends for an entertaining night out.
