    We haven't stopped talking about how great this tour was! The tour guides were so funny and made the experience so memorable. We learnt a lot about the dark history of Liverpool, and the stories were delivered in such an engaging and entertaining way. Couldn't recommend it enough!

    I have to say the whole experience is really amazing!!!Both of our guides are great and interesting. And they’re really good at telling stories and making the atmosphere! Personally I cannot come up with any improvements since the two ladies are perfect. Both me and my boyfriend agreed to give a 10 out of 5! And we let our friends know about this amazing trip! Thank you for making this trip so interesting and attractive!
