We took a 3 hour back cab tour of Liverpool. Main focus was history. Phil the guide was excellent. We learnt loads and he took account of our lack of mobility. We really enjoyed it.

Amazing, friendly tour leader Gary Friday took our party from the Britannia cruise ship along the streets of Liverpool to a querky 1930’s pub for beer tasting followed by a visit to Matthew Street and the original Cavern Club entrance. The tour started off in torrential rain and we went through deep puddles along the way but Gary made it fun and everyone enjoyed his knowledge of Liverpool. The pub staff were excellent, friendly and welcoming, serving us with three types of beer and delicious scouse. The incredible thing about Gary was how he quickly learnt our names - considering there were 20 of us! I would absolutely recommend this tour. Thank you Gary!
