This was included for an extra fee as part of a larger Beatles tour I was doing. I knew the Casbah was a coffee club run by Pete Best's mom where the Beatles had played prior to their Cavern heyday, but had no idea this place still existed and was wondering if it was a bit of a tourist trap...

The Casbah 'out Beatles' any other fab four attraction I've visited. This fantastic attraction oozes history and Roag (Best) is a great history teller who made us... More

Myself and my husband have been to nearly all the Beatles 'sights' in both London and Liverpool but for some reason had never been to the Casbah. Despite having read lots of books on the history of the fab ones this tour still provided lots of new facts that we didn't previously know. Enthusiastically and movingly guided by Roag Best... More
