Full description
Meet by the new statue of the Beatles in front of the Mersey Ferry Terminal at Pier Head and take some souvenir photos in front of the famous Liver Buildings. Then, visit the Grade II-listed Port of Liverpool Building, built in 1907 with a lavish marble interior and magnificent domed roof. Take a short walk to the Maritime Museum of Liverpool, where exhibits tell the story of the city through costume, decorative art and everyday artefacts, before heading back towards Albert Docks and the 18th-century Liverpool Town Hall where the Beatles had their homecoming reception in 1964. Journey down one of Liverpool's original streets en route to Mathew Street to see the Eleanor Rigby Statue and new statue of Cilla Black in the Cavern Quarter. End your tour at the Cavern Club, where the Beatles played 292 times between 1961 and 1963 and where there is usually live Beatles music on stage. The tour has something for everyone and is perfect as a shore excursion, as the starting point is less than 5 minutes walk from the cruise terminal.

Met up with several other couples at the appointed meeting place near pier head. Guide was waiting and chatting to other people on this tour who also arrived a little early. Then spent time taking photos and listening to our guide explain many things related to the water front as well as the Fab Four. We did not measure the distance we walked but it was not too strenuous for us (60 year olds), even up a set of stairs (due to a road closure) were not taxing. Stopped several times to listen to some very interesting facts about the Beatles and Liverpool. Tour ended up taking about 2 hours 20 minutes. Really enjoyed the tour.

Fantastic guide, this morning, 21 November, started at 10.30am. She made the tour so interesting, very passionate about her city of Liverpool, made it very personable. Was about the history of the Beatles but also some history of Liverpool. we saw and heard about things you just wouldn't notice on your own. I highly recommend this tour. Thank you.

Excellent! Even in the rain.

We had a good guide (Catherine) who showed us around the key places and brought the Beatles era alive for us (even though we remembered it!) Completely loved the Cavern club and the live music still playing there today. We were lucky enough to see the Double Fantasy exhibition too ... fascinating and so moving. Would highly recommend this tour; good value for money and not just about the Beatles, good city history too.
