Do not expect to much from this ferry as after all its a ferry from Liverpool to Birkenhead. We went on it as when in Liverpool we could not resist, but we would not go on again if we were in Liverpool again. We paid for the Submarine "museum" but we would advise to save your money.

Decided to cross the river, after a visit to the spaceport. My youngest son loved this trip. Great entertainment on board with stories of the city and its history. Polished off with the dulcet tones of Gerry Marsden!

The 50min trip brought back a lot of memories as I was at a maritime reunion on the 13th of September for ex personnel of the blue funnel line of Liverpool.the trip was very informative of all things past and present that had happened on the banks of the Mersey around Liverpool and Birkenhead

Had a great trip with my Daughter. It was a lovely experience to see the whole spectrum of Liverpool from the River Mersey. We sang with a smile to Gerry and the Pacemakers!

As part of our weekend in Liverpool, and as fans of 60's music, we felt we ought to do this trip. Although apparently free for 'Over 60' Merseyside residents with bus passes, our own local bus passes allowed us a concessionary rate, which made the experience good value for money.

This is an absolute MUST for any visit to Liverpool. The full river cruise is both refreshing and informative. There's so much heritage and what better way to view it? I usually take several trips during each visit to Liverpool, don't miss it!

Take a trip on one of the most famous ferries in history to Gerry and the Pacemakers 'ferry cross the mersey'. It allows you to view the manhattenlike skyline of Liverpool and Birkenhead the other side. Just great fun and a must do experience.
