We spent a magical day in Liverpole with Jacki visiting many, many places connected to Beatles history. Jackie generously shared unique insights and interesting stories and most importantly her contagious passion for both the city and the band. We were also treated to great music (thoughtfully chosen with us in mind) along the way and a fabulous 60th birthday surprise for Rita at the Strawberry Field café. We also loved Mark, who did a great job driving so Jackie could focus 100% of her time entertaining us. Both Jackie and Mark are lovely people and an absolute pleasure to be with - in fact, even after only a day with Jackie, we consider her a fried and would welcome her in our home. We highly recommend taking a private Beatles tour with Jackie – it was truly the highlight of our recent visit to the UK, and an experience we ill never forget.

Our first trip to Liverpool and how lucky were we to get a city walking tour with the fabulous Jackie. She was full of stories and insights and passion for the Beatles and the city. We did our tour on the first morning of our four day trip and Jackie left us breathless with excitement to really get under the skin of this great city and it’s unique musical legend. Her recommendations were faultless and helped us make the most of our trip….and we fell in love with the Beatles all over again. Book Jackie in a heartbeat and then enjoy the magic she creates.

I went on a Beatles tour with Jackie Spencer in December of 2019- quite honestly and very simply, it was the best tour of my life. It's not just her knowledge of the Beatles (which is beyond comprehension) or her voice (which is like if Morgan Freeman was a female scouser) - but it's how PERSONAL the tour was. She interacted with people whenever possible, loved helping people take pictures, adapted certain parts for the audience and if you asked a question, she ALWAYS knew the answer, but would also let the group know. I also loved how she had a soundtrack to the tour - not just songs in between stops, but clips of songs to illustrate things, or remind you what you were seeing, and even a Gerry and the Pacemakers song that explained what she was saying about the Mersey. Honestly can't wait to go on another one with her.

Such a fab tour with our group of 45. All of us, aged between 50 and 92, had such a wonderful time touring the city with her guiding our coach. Jackie’s amazing knowledge of her city’s history and also the tales of the four lads from Liverpool who became known world-wide as The Beatles was so entertaining, her love for her hometown shines through and her Scouser sense of humour was a treat. Cannot recommend her highly enough.

What sets Jackie's tours apart from all the others is the way she tells stories on the tour. By speaking in advance with original fans and people who were there at the time, Jackie has unique little anecdotes about the history and the locations. This all helps bring the Beatles' story to life. These stories added to her 'script' add nicely to the details of the location that Jackie will share with you knowledgeably. All adding to the visitor's enjoyment of the experience. In addition, Jackie's warm welcome and cheerful, friendly manner make her tours highly informative and a lot of fun! Highly recommended for Beatles fans everywhere.

Thank S, I had a lot of fun starting from scratch with the Chester Tour, I know how deep your own research goes so I had a challenge, especially when I realised the class from the Beatles Uni Course made up a lot of my audience! It was fun hanging out with you all though and thank you for the Wobbly Bob!

Jackie did a virtual tour for a group of friends and myself during the pandemic. She left no Beatle stone unturned and knew little bits of information about out of the way, but important parts of the Beatles story that the average guide does not know. She brought their history to life and helped our friends who had never been to Liverpool understand the importance of how the city shaped their attitudes and music! She also did little tours online of pubs the fab four used to hang out in, my favorite was the one around the corner from the Art College where John Lennon used to go. She has an extraordinary depth of knowledge about all things Beatles and anyone who takes a tour with her will be blown away!

Jackie is both knowledgeable and personable. She knows Liverpool inside and out and we visited every important Beatles location including, birthplaces, homes, schools, song inspirations, and venues. She led us on a rousing rendition of "Love Me Do," in a pub on the anniversary of the songs release.

Even though our in-person tour with Jackie was in 2019, as part of the Beatles Pilgrimage tour, (reviewed at the time), my husband and I have continued to benefit from Jackie’s knowledge of all things Beatles! Through the Covid years, we looked forward to her live streams and her virtual tours, especially any related to George! When Jackie told us about a fundraising drive for a Brian Epstein statue in Liverpool, we jumped at the chance to be part of Liverpool history; a way to give back to the city that has given us so much. And who was streaming so we could see the unveiling and be part of the day in August 2022? Jackie Spencer, of course! She has the knowledge, but most important, she knows her audience! She appreciates our feelings about the lads. We continue to recommend her to friends and hope that we get back to Liverpool soon!

Thank you so much. When I encouraged lots of friends to be involved in the Eppy statue, I was disappointed that I wasn't able to do as promised and personally add the lumps of clay on their behalf. Damn pandemic! I was delighted though when Andy the sculptor told me instead he had carved all their initials in the lining of his coat...with mine at the top. Such a wonderful surprise. Hope you make it back soon x

Jackie is the most knowledgeable “All Things Beatles” guide I ever toured with. She is so enjoyable. She sings, plays coordinated music, explains, throws in extras, and simply is the best. Don’t come to Liverpool for a Beatles experience without booking at least one tour with Jackie Spencer, Beatles Guide Extraordinaire…you’ll be amazed.

Hi M, Was lovely to spend some quality time with you, but also quite a challenge knowing that you & J are major Beatles afficionados yourself. Was fab to be able to show you things that you, as a local, had never seen, and to have a good laugh singing our way around Liverpool, even in the pouring rain! You're right, the hours really do fly by! x
