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

We met in the docks and had a fascinating ~2 hour trip around the City, we saw buildings old and new, heard the history, the owners, previous owners, what... More

Excellent walking tour around the RopeWalk area of the City. Lived in Liverpool all my life & discovered buildings I never knew existed. This area dates back to 1700 & it's good to know the City Council are preserving our heritage. The area mainly consisted of warehouses as the first dock came right up to Hanover St & small factories... More

Very informative, without ever being dry or boring.The tour guides really knew their way around the city! A visit to the Tate shop later for souvenirs we found a great little... More

I would highly recommend it particularly for people who already have some knowledge of Liverpool. Its a walking tour so we were very luck... More

We did this tour today. Our guides Jen and Barry were friendly and very knowledgeable. The tour was further enhanced by the maps and old photos that Barry showed us before and during the walk.We thoroughly enjoyed the walk, which gave us a new insight into some of the iconic buildings of the city. We were particularly impressed by the... More

We have just completed the Culture and Faith walking tour (10.1.15) Arthur and Pat the guides were very knowledgeable and friendly. We thought we knew Liverpool but found a church and a few buildings we didn't know existed. We would highly recommend this tour. Elaine and Michael

We went on the Gateway to the World Tour which was truly eye opening and taught me so much about the history of the city and its place in the world.

We took the Culture, Learning and Faiths tour taking in both cathedrals and lots in between. As the only participants we had personal guides in Catherine and Helen B. They were both excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our two hours in their company.
