I was in Liverpool for a show at the M&A Arena in evening and had some time free in the afternoon. Booked a ticket on my phone that morning; very straight forward process.

The tour guide Damien was fantastic. His passion for the Beatles was on full display. He made the tour informative, entertaining, interacted with us tourists answering any questions we had and the sing-alongs included just added to the atmosphere despite the horrible weather (it began snowing at the start of the tour).

Kudos has to be given to the bus driver (can't remember his name, sorry!) for driving in increasingly snowy weather as the tour progressed.

The tour was worth every penny and I highly recommend anyone who has a vested interest in The Beatles and has 90 minutes to spare in the day.

We booked this tour before leaving home for Liverpool & really looked forward to it. We were not disappointed! Absolute amazing & total highlight of our trip. We booked for four of us, two adults, a four year old & 11 month old. We sat on the top deck & next to Chris the tour guide, who was very engaging, knew his stuff & had a cracking sense of humour & kept everyone entertained including our 4 year old. He was fantastic!! Hopped off at Penny Lane & got some photos as a family which is rare, thanks Chris!! Steve the driver was excellent, allowing us good views of some of the sites & getting as close as allowed to the former houses of the Beatles (national trust so have arrange separate tour). Chris always open to be asked questions & tried to answer all & we felt valued though he’s probably heard the same things time & time again lol. A highlight for us as a musical family was the singalong of Beatles songs by Chris with accompaniment on banjo ukulele. Fantastic Chris!!

Overall, it’s no wonder this is the best tour on trip advisor. I’d say it’s definitely very much worth its money, the blue route guided tour & also as you can use your tickets for 48 hours afterwards to hop on & off throughout the red route at your own leisure. We really enjoyed it & upon asking our 4 year old who is a Beatles fan, what was his best bit of Liverpool & his activities as he did loads of Beatles related things as well as the tour & he says it’s the bus tour every time, no prompting.

Thanks Chris & Steve for a great time & we hope to tour with you again soon & enjoy more sights & sounds of Liverpool.

Well what can I say, we were wet through, it rained shortly after setting off. We were warned about the trees on the top deck slapping you on the head, made worse with the rain. (glad we took rain coats) ‘ABSOLUTELY ‘BRILLIANT TRIP’ such entertainment from Chris, what a comic, laugh a minute (and he can sing a bit) really made the trip worthwhile, very informative, worth every penny, would definitely recommend and do again.

We arrived at the terminal 15 min in advance of our scheduled trip (as is recommended) but the top of the bus was full so we sat on the bottom, assuming that we could move to the top after the the next stop; unfortunately we were advised as we were leaving the bus that everyone would return to the same seats, which meant that we literally saw only half the tour and never got to experience the double decker bus; we paid the same as those seated above and did not have the same experience. The guide would be speaking about things that we could not see; when i shared my disappointment the guide at no point did he attempt to find a solution, (maybe see if someone up top would be willing to switch with us so our children could have a the view from up top) but simply stated that this is how they do it; the tour itself provided minimal insights, we went to locations that we could have done on our own; the stories and information shared was very basic that any travel blog has; overall not worth the money; when we got back to the port and i shared this information with the contact at the City Tour booth, he did not seem very interested in my feedback and made no attempts to acknowledge my disappointment. If you really want a Beatles Tour experience i suggest spending a bit more money for a REAL tour as this one fell way short of enjoyable.

Hi Michelle, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. I feel I must defend our company in this instance. As with any tour bus company, seats on the upper saloon are on a first-come, first-served basis. This is unless customers choose to pay extra for guaranteed "VIP" seats. Our guests are able to view the same sights on the lower saloon as the upper - the places we visit and the sights we see are the same regardless of where you are seated on the bus. Hopefully, you can understand that if we asked people to move for your children, then this would be unfair to the people who queued early and secured their seats on the upper saloon. I also feel that if you had been seated on the upper saloon, then your review would not accuse our guides of providing "minimal insights" etc. Our guides are highly trained and provide informative and entertaining tours. We are extremely proud of all of our guides as it is their hard work that has led to us being voted in the top ten attractions in the world. Having spoken to the staff in question, they have fed back that they merely shared the same information with you regarding the first-come, first-served policy for seating. If you wish to discuss this matter further, you are welcome to contact us via email admin@liverpoolcitysights.com Regards, The LCS Team

I can honestly say this was the best experience I've had of the hop on, hop off bus type tours. We had booked with 2 friends who had not been to Liverpool before and they were blown away by the tour.Our tour guide Damian was absolutely brilliant-in a league of his own and by far the best tour guide I've experienced on these type of bus tours. He was so funny, knowledgeable and obviously a real Beatles fan as he pointed out all the iconic Beatles sights. As we got off the bus at Penny Lane and strawberry Fields he took photos of every single couple/group. Amazing. He got everybody singing along ro some Beatles numbers he played on his acoustic guitar. He is a real asset to the company.

We did the tour Sat 12th November and at £14 per person is amazing value. Highly ecommended!

If you want to understand where the Beatles grew up, where some of the significant lines in their songs originated from and you enjoy listening to the classic Beatles songs then this is the tour for you. Our host entertained everyone from before the bus departed Albert Dock right until it parked there again at the conclusion of the tour. A fabulous amount of interesting facts we’re revealed and with some great humour along the way plus some live song playing. Very much recommend this tour to all Beatles fans and those who want to know more of Liverpool’s famous history. Very good value for money.

We did the Beatles tour with Smoggy as the driver and Chris as the the guide. What a fantastic tour with so much information and such entertainment. Chris was great offering to take photos for anyone that wanted them in penny lane and strawberry fields and doing a selfie of himself!!!
The following day we did the tour of Liverpool and Damion was the guide who was equally great too
Both Chris and Damions knowledge were excellent
Would definitely recommend doing these tours as there is so much history in such a great city
Great value for money

Great tour showing us around Liverpool with a slant on Beatles landmarks in particular.

We were pleasantly surprised by the knowledge, wit and entertainment provided by our guide (whose name I didn't catch unfortunately), who sang and played Beatles songs on his guitar throughout, while giving all manner of information and becoming an impromptu photographer for all at the Strawberry Fields and Penny lane sites we stopped at to take in more closely.

Our driver Ian was also very cheery and friendly.

As a Beatles fan, I would highly recommend this 90 minute journey through nostalgia and taken in combination with the Beatles Story museum experience (which was also excellent) represents tremendous value for money.

Fantastic tour. The crew were wonderful and had a passion for what they were doing. Ann our driver safely kept us on the upper deck from the overhanging branches 😂 As for Chris our host he was very informative and was obviously very passionate about his home city and the Beatles. He delivered so many amazing facts with so much humour. Liverpools very own festival of roadworks will live with us for a very long time. Apart from the disorganisation at getting on the bus I can wholeheartedly recommend doing this trip. It’s a must for any visitors.

This is our second time we have been on this first-class tour. Which I think says it all. Well worth the money Once again, Damien entertained us, on his acoustic guitar singing many Beatles popular songs along the tour and sharing interesting facts about the Fab Four, the stories behind songs and how they got their titles, plus many interesting facts about other Liverpool famous celebrities. We were not disappointed and would without doubt strongly recommend this tour to anyone, of all ages. The staff were brilliant and very friendly, we were not rushed and would answer loads of questions with interesting replies. They truly made you feel very welcome, just like the first time. A credit to their employer. Tip make sure you use the "Free glass" of Presco voucher at The Philharmonic pub, just to see the gentleman's toilets!!! It's the pub Paul McCartney and James Corbyn visited and did a gig during Carpool Karaoke. Pop in to the two cathedrals whist you're at it.
