What people are saying about Liverpool

We have a thoroughly enjoyable Peaky day

We did the full day tour as I really wanted to visit Arley Hall. The tour was very entertaining, including lots of information on Liverpool itself. We visited some great locations and were reminded of the scenes filmed there, we had photo opportunities and plenty of time to look around. I enjoyed watching the programme clips and music on the bus too, which added to he experience. Lunch at Arley Hall was lovely, we sat in the sun and admired the house. It was great to actually stand in Tommy's office and walk around the rest of the rooms. Th tour has made us want to watch it all again from the beginning to prepare us for season 5. I would highly recommend the tour for any Peaky Blinders fan.

Liverpool: Beatles and City Walking Tour Reviewed by Lisa, 04/04/2019

An interesting and informative afternoon

A very interesting, enjoyable and informative afternoon, first on the Mersey Ferry and its various stops with an informative commentary over the boat's PA system. A glorious sunny spring day helped to make it a most pleasurable 50 mins cruising. Afterwards we jumped on the the hop-on, hop-off bus for a city tour. Our guide, Patricia was an excellent mine of information and made the tour a most interesting and enjoyable end to our first afternoon's introduction to Liverpool.

Liverpool: The Beatles Story Ticket Reviewed by Sandra, 03/24/2019

Thoroughly enjoyed Hop-On Bus experience

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.
