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 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

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

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.

Big Thankyou to the girl at the kiosk for the city bus tours (sorry I didn’t get your name - blonde hair in pony tail wearing red jacket) but I came to you 2 days running as I planned my day for showing 2friends from Kent ( who were visiting 1st time and arriving on cruise ship Anthem of the Seas on 22/10/21)
The girl at the Kiosk was so patient as I dithered over which but tour to book and despite other bus company reps who were working at same kiosk trying to pursuance me to book their tour buses, I admired your confidence and sincerity in assuring me what your tours actually offered. It was thanks to you I booked your tours and not any of the others.
On the day 22/10/21 we purchased 3 Beatles Museum & Beatles City Tours which meant we had time to visit Beatles Tour in Albert Dock immediately prior to boarding the tour bus, so no waiting around. We were lucky to have the front seats upstairs on the tour bus and our tour guide host for the day was Dom (from Manchester) but he knew his stuff about Liverpool and the Beatles and had his passengers singing along throughout the tour as he played various Beatles songs on his guitar. As Liverpool is my home city I was able to add my own knowledge when he asked for it and my friends and I found this way of sightseeing far better and more interactive than being sat on a tour bus, wearing headphones listening to a pre-recorded monotone voice. The tour bus lasts 90 mins and It was entertaining and informative from start to finish. Well done everyone. you were all great ambassadors for Beatles Bus & City Tours. No 1 in fact 👍👏👏👏

We booked on impulse a City and Beatles tour as whilst we were not necessarily looking for a complete Beatles experience we were keen to see some of the history as well as the sights of the city. We weren't disappointed at all with both the quality of the tour and the informative and funny commentary provided by one of the guides (Chris). Both myself and my wife learned a great deal about the history of Liverpool and the Beatles and came away extremely impressed. We were also able to use our tickets for the Red Route City tour the following day which again proved worthwhile. If you are looking for a tour that is geared more towards the Beatles and Beatlemania this might not be enough but we definitely felt it was great value for money and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending in the future.

Great value for money, did the 10:30am tour on Thursday 9th Sept before the heavy downpour in the afternoon. Damien the guide was brilliant, spoke very passionately about his city & the Beatles, he kept us all well entertained with his knowledge & even gave us a couple of songs accompanied by his guitar which added a nice touch. We learned a lot about what inspired the lyrics to some of the Lennon & McCartney songs, it all made me feel very emotional, that’s just the way I am, had the same feeling when I was in the Cavern Club the day before, I’ve always been a big fan of the Beatles & this tour was the highlight of our two day trip to Liverpool, would fully recommend this tour.
