Fantastic tour. Guide was friendly & knowledgeable about the history of the building. We were taken to the inside of the clock & the short film was very moving & anyone could understand the motive of the fast moving iconic images. Climbing the stairs was far easier than I imagined, as we had 3 stops on the way up. The views from above the clock face across Liverpool were amazing as luckily it was a clear day. Worth a visit!

Despite the pouring rain, the tour and guides were both excellent and really engaged the whole group while telling stories. Extra tour of the St James gardens was also an added bonus! Will definitely be back when next in town.

John was an excellent tour guide explaining the history as we walked at a lovely steady pace .

Well organised & interesting tour. The tour guide was excellent…very knowledgeable & helpful.

Great views over Liverpool,and very informative, I learnt a lot about the Liver building.
