The guide was extremely knowledgeable of the entire history of Liverpool especially the docks, trade and shipping on the Mersey. It was information overload and hard to take it all in but very interesting.

this was a great tour, very informative and great learning all the history of Liverpool. Walking through the city was definitely immersive. 10/10 would recommend to anyone visiting the city

Looking at the history of the hard work and dedication of people directly involved with the day to day operations during the war.
