Why take a shared Beatles or LIverpool tour in a coach when you can travel safely with your own qualified Blue Badge Tour Guide who is great fun and who is also a Beatles expert. See Penny Lane, Strawberry Field & much more. Our luxury V-class Mercedes is sanitised between tours and there is Hand Gel, masks and WIFi on board. I will explain how and why the city has changed in a lighthearted informative way and help you plan the rest of your day. There are very few licensed driver guides in Liverpool and no other Liverpool Qualified Guide has a V-class Mercedes. I am a Beatles expert & I like to mix up the legacy left by the fab4 with the maritime history and the impact of the new waterfront buildings on the World Heritage Site. I will talk about the Georgian Quarter and the slave trade and you will visit the Victorian Round Reading Room and be driven through the world heritage site. My tours are family friendly and I will help you plan the rest of your visit.
