Reviewed October 18, 2013

Having grown up idolizing The Beatles, playing in a band and loving their music - never would I have thought that one day I'd visit Liverpool.
My wife won a trip to London for the two of us so I decided that we'd stay over a few days and take a trip to Liverpool. We decided to book with Jackie for the Beatle Tour and I'm so glad we did.
Jackie met us at the train station and took us on an AWESOME tour! She was so informative and passionate about John, Paul, "George" & Ringo!!
If you love The Beatles - this is a must tour and Jackie is the one to make it happen!

“A journey thru Liverpool with Jackie Spencer”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

I couldn't have asked for another person to take me to sites on my 6 hr trip to Liverpool. I saw it all from the Jacarenda to the Beatles story to the Casbah club to the Cavern. To John, Paul and georges houses to inside Ringo's. To meeting Rory Best. Jackie was so knowledgeable, so kind, took her time with me and my family, let me stay at certain places longer than anticipated like Strawberry fields, Penny Lane, stu's grave, Eleanor and Father Mckenzie grave. The Church house where the boys met. The Liverpool Institute. It was one of the greatest days of my life to see where my heroes grownup, learned to work and play together in every spot imagineable. She is the best. If I ever come back (which I know I will) she is the first and ONLY person I will reach out to do it again. Thank you Jackie for all you did for me and my family.

“A cracking guide and tour”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We had our tour with Jackie, as she was able to complete the tour with us and 3 children aswell. A 7yr old, 6yr old, and 5 month old. Nice transport, a great friendly driver, who also doubled as a nanny at times!!! Jackie was great with the kids, and completed a brilliant tailored tour. Highly recommended, and really informative, Thanks Jackie

“Amazing Trip, Fantastic Guide Jackie”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

I'm back home reflecting on what an amazing trip I had. Jackie was my group's guide for a couple of days in Aug. 2013 and, believe me, it was time well spent. It was thrilling to see in person all those places I had heard of and read about - the Cavern Club, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, St. Peter's Church, etc.

I would like to say that Jackie is an exceptional guide - certainly very deserving of all the accolades I have read here. I consider myself fairly knowledgeable about the Beatles but she knows all the details - especially concerning their Liverpool years. Information about the Beatles is not static - there is always something new being discovered and she seems to be on top of it all. As well she is well known and respected throughout Liverpool (and the UK for that matter) and suffice it to say that knowing the right people can have its benefits.

So if you have some questions about the Fab Four that you have been puzzling about for years by all means make sure that you book a tour with Jackie and take advantage of her world class expertise!

My parents, wife and I had a fantastic experience with Jackie. This was our first trip to England and the Liverpool tour was by far one of our best experiences.
