Although we didn't visit the space port at the first port of call but spent an hour walking along the marine parade there, then went on to visit the U boat which my husband spent 2 very happy hours there, I enjoyed the cafe.... Then back to pier head, couldn't believe that we had spent 5 hours altogether on the... More

Bought a family ticket and included the space explorer option, the submarine visit is included with the ferry purchase. Great audio information on ferry about Liverpool, the space explorer was like being in the London Planetarium, brilliant. The submarine was worth a look. You can also hop on and off for the day. Lovely cafe at the submarine stop. We... More

50 of us travelled from NI to Liverpool for a university open day and on the trip we took in a number of attractions such as the Mersey Ferry. You get wonderful views of both the Liverpool and Whirril riverbanks and I would definitely recommend a visit! When we got off the ferry Meryil Streep and Hugh Grant were filming... More

I was expecting the cruise to be one circuit only but we were pleasantly surprised when we found we could hop on and off anywhere at any time of day! the staff were friendly. We did not sample the bar and snack shop, we would have done on the last crossing but unfortunately it was closed by then (the only... More

I really enjoyed this tour. I grew up listening to music from Liverpool and loved Gerry and the Pacemakers almost as much as The Beatles. The cruise was very interesting and we broke the journey by leaving the ferry at Seacombe and going to spend some time at New Brighton. Loved it when they played Ferry 'Cross the Mersey briefly...

This was a nice and relaxing little trip. A lovely way to spend an hour on a Saturday morning. Reasonable price too, and we saved money by buying a ticket there for the ferry and also the sightseeing bus, which you can catch right outside the ticket office. There was plenty of seating, and seats well placed to give you... More

Brightly coloured Snowdrop ferry, with grand views of the 3 Liver buildings and the Liverpool dock. Can get a little 'sea-sick' as it is slightly wavy ride. We stopped to see the U boats too and my boys loved it.

A funky, colourful ferry. We sat on chairs along the side of the ferry and enjoyed the views in the sunshine.
