This is Liverpool's original Beatles tour which takes you on an entertaining journey to the places where John, Paul, George and Ringo lived, met and hung out as they formed the band that took the pop world by storm. See the places that inspired songs such as Penny Lane and Strawberry Field, stand outside the houses where they lived and enjoy plenty of Fab Four tunes along the way. The tour finishes with a visit to the world famous Cavern Club where The Beatles played 292 times. Your ticket also gives you free general admission to the Cavern in the evening. Private tailor-made tours can also be arranged for your group in the Magical Mystery Tour people-carrier, minibus or coach! Translations of the tour commentary are available in French, German, Italian and Spanish. « less

Worth every penny. To try to locate & enjoy these locations on your own is possible but not half as much fun. Very good informative commentary from the local tour guide & free entry to the fabulous Cavern at the end. Thoroughly recommended :)

On the whole I enjoyed this tour, it took me to all the places of interest I wanted to go to and would expect. But my one overwhelming disappointment was the fact that the bus only paused for a second outside John Lennon's house and we weren't allowed to get off to take photos like we were able to do... More

I was afraid this was gonna be the super cliché type of tourist trap, but being the huge Beatles fan that I am I couldn't miss this. The tour is fun and the guide (whose name I forgot) is very entertaining and funny. You get to see all the iconic places related to Beatles history and I felt a bit... More

A very interesting and informative coach trip around the homes and landmarks that shaped and influenced the Beatles and their music. A little on the expensive side but a must do for anyone with an interest in Pop history and especially the Beatles.

I went to Liverpool on Mothers Day with my sons as a Mother's Day present. The Beatles were my heroes from when I was at primary school in the 60's and I saw them live several times. The trip took me on a a very emotional journey and I loved every moment. Our Guide/Driver was Tony who was fantastic. He... More

Went on The Magical Mystery Bus Tour which took us to John Lennon's home, We were a little disappointed that we could not walk around. It is owned by the Nat Trust & they do a tour which enables you to go inside but we were told this has to be booked well in advance.

Highlights of the Beatles life in Liverpool - a bit cheesy as yes, we are given time to get off the bus to stand in the front yard of a few Beatles childhood homes and take photos of street signs. It gives a good overview of Liverpool and the neighborhoods you would probably not venture into without a tour!

This was made great by the commentary. The right blend of information, chat and music. Informative and entertaining. A real must for all Beatle fans especially for the older fan as the excellent driver takes you right to the places you want to see.
