“Very good value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

We visited in a group of six. The tour takes you to the control room and then through the ventilation areas down to the tunnel itself and into the refuge areas. En route there are glimpses into the history of the docks and the construction of the three graces. The two tour guides were informed and possessed excellent people skills. This is unbelievable value for £5 a person.

“Well worth booking in advance for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014

Fascinating behind the scenes visit. Really enthusiastic escorts who are informative and professional, and without any of the jadedness that full time tour guides can develop. The tunnels are a world of their own.

“A "must see" tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

For the bargain price of £5, you get nearly two hours of being shown and informed how the tunnels operate and a history by the excellent tour guides. From the control room 4 stories up to beneath the road surface. A top tour and a great start to the day if in Liverpool for the weekend.

“Very interesting. Something a bit different.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

I have wanted to do this tour for a while and it did not disappoint, very interesting tour and explanation of the history, structure and engineering of the Mersey tunnels. Our two guides were very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The tunnel building is a beautiful Art Deco structure so lovely to look at from the outside too. A bargain for £5, I would really recommend this whether local to Liverpool or not. Ps. Visitors need to be reasonably fit as there were a lot of stairs!
