Fantastic Boat trip up and down the Mersey followed by a City Bus tour the next day. Both trips came with a fantastic commentary from a local guide, without the Bus tour we would have not visited both Cathedral’s. Very good value for money, a must when in Liverpool.

We hopped on & off several buses with different drivers and tour guides. Every single one were fabulous. Informative, friendly and funny

Great way to see Liverpool! Would recommend to anyone staying for a short time to get the most out of your trip.
