We went on this walk last Friday and it was fascinating. The guides, Barry and Pat, were very knowledgeable and we had a lovely friendly group and enjoyed an enlightening 2 hour walk around our own city. We saw lots of hidden gems and would definitely recommend this walk to locals and visitors alike. Already booked on another of the... More

I have to say it wasn't great but given the other reviews on here must've been a relatively new route...Barry seemed to be quite unsure of what he was showing us and whenever I asked a question, he seemed not to know the answer...fortunately one of the other walkers provided some fascinating insights into the historic construction relating to several...

We had the good fortune to attend the 'Gateway to the World' tour on Light Night. Even though we are born and bred scousers we enjoyed the breadth and depth of knowledge our two tour guides imparted to us! Their friendliness and patience was brilliant and unfortunately the 2 hours seemed to go too quickly!

We enjoyed a very interesting tour with Arthur. He showed us lots of buildings we didn't even know existed and seemed to be a mine of information. We will gladly recommend the tours to other people and look forward to another one.

We had two fantastic RIBA guides (Barry and Paul) who gave us a brilliant tour of the city of Liverpool. We did the "gateway to the world" tour, which focused on Liverpool's trading history. This included seeing the Three Graces, a view inside the old Cunard offices and departure area, as well as many other less well known, but no... More

We went on the Ropewalk tour yesterday & can't rate it highly enough. We met at Liverpool One Travel Centre where toilets were available if needed before tour started. Barry & Pat, our walk leaders were mines of information. The tour is suitable for visitors and locals alike. We ourselves have lived on Wirral all our lives & thought we... More

I really can't praise our RIBA tour enough and enjoyed every minute. We went on Gateway to the World and will most defiantly be booking the other tours. I'm from Liverpool and have returned back to my home town after many years away. The passion and knowledge offered by our guides Brian and Catherine really has opened our eyes to... More
