What people are saying about Liverpool
Excellent - BUT the queue to try and obtain the photograph of myself and my grandson with the Champions League Cup was the the only downpoint. After the tour you don't want to wait for ever to get this as was our experience. EVENTUALLY WE GAVE UP AND LEFT! A sale lost and we were not the only ones affected. Some improvement required here.
It a wonderful way of visiting Liverpool to get an appreciation of the rich culture. Great day out.
Liverpool city is amazing, so much history, lovely friendly people, will be back again to see the the rest next year, too much to see and do in 2 days, will make a week of it next time, one of the best short breaks I have had.
Our bus tour with Chris as our guide was most enjoyable. His commentary was very informative and the comedy made the trip memorable.
Although the Beatles Story was brilliant the same cannot be said about the organisation of the staff when trying to gain admittance. Considering it was a Saturday there was two queues of people trying to get in with only one out of three tills in operation. Had to wait at least 20 minutes to get in and queues did not move evenly with people who arrived after us gaining admittance before us. Staff seemed overwhelmed about how many people would be attending.
