Just returned from my second Beatles Tour. Jackie is amazing, sharing her vast knowledge of her native Liverpool with such pride and passion. What she doesn't know about The Beatles isn't worth knowing. We never tired of listening to her Coo Coo Coo Choo.

Our family of four, all lifelong Beatle fans, booked Jackie's tour while in Liverpool and it was truly the highlight of our trip to the U.K. She took us here, there, and everywhere we wanted to go and gave us plenty of time for taking pictures. I requsted a place or two that were not on the regular tour and... More

Jackie is amazing - she knows everything there is to know about The Fab Four and also is one of the nicest guides I have used. Jackie not only knows her stuff (I grew up with Beatles stories but learnt so much more) she takes you back to the beginning and emerges you in the history of this great band.... More

Jackie is a human Google of Beatles info! The tour and Jackie's commentary and insights made so many Beatles songs come to life... who knew that Strawberry Fields was an orphanage, or that there really is "shelter in the middle of a roundabout"??? We so enjoyed the fact that Jackie sat with us while we were driven around by Paul--... More

Hiya, Although I love all the tours, its great when someone wants to go off the Beatle Track...in this case out to the seaside and the marvellous Anthony Gormley's 'Another Place' - paddling and all :) Loved the hot chocolate to warm us up after. Special tour indeed this one as we did indeed get to 'dumpster dive' for some... More

Incredible experience. I’d been to Liverpool once before and saw the major highlights. But as I prepared to visit Liverpool a few years later, I realized that anyone could have shown me those. So this time, I contacted Jackie and set up a modified “Best” tour. As a life-long Beatle fanatic (starting from first seeing them on the first Ed... More

Aww Mathew, that was one hell of a day! Sun was shining, and you serenading our Margaret with Elvis songs in Ringo's old home was just precious! Hope everyone check out the you tube videos - there is a link and a mention on the blog page of my website. See you in NYC! More

My wife Donna and I spent the day with Jackie on a wonderful tour thru Liverpool and so many Beatle sites that I can't mention them all here. Jackie has that rare trait of making you feel like family within minutes of meeting her. Now Liverpool is a very interesting city but so much would have been missed without Jackie,... More
