    As a group of strangers gathered on the corner of the street the two guides drew attention to the tour and comanded the attention required. Dressed in black, wearing clothes befitting the victoriana era,wielding a 'tour guide' stick which was used to great effect when attracting attention, smacking a well dented metal bucket (containing some random body part as a prop). Such was the lead actress/guide's effectiveness, people were enthralled by the information (which was delivered with enthusiasm and great artistic merit) and the pergormance ( an exhausting display of fitness as she bounced around the streets while shepherding her charges around the streets being careful not to loosend people to the occasional traffic. 'Thriller Black' as she was self named and her young side-kick, made good use of the streets as a stage and included people in the paying group as well as interacting with padestrians and passing vehicles alike. We learned a great deal and enjoyed both girls personalities

    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.
