We were taking a cruise and booked the tour independently rather than through the cruise. A 15 minute walk from the cruise terminal. The headsets allowed for commentary on the exhibits. We both really enjoyed our experience at the museum.

Our guide was Neil who was extremely knowledgable and friendly throughout the whole tour. Neil drove us around, communicating the area, the relevance to the tour etc. Neil was happy to stop and let us out to take photos. We visited places that we wouldn’t have probably got to see on our own. Thoroughly recommend this personalised service.

It was awesome! Our guide Helen had lots of interesting stories, she is a very pleasant and outgoing lady absolutely fit for the job. I can only recommend!The only thing- it really was a City tour, rather than exclusively a Beatles tour, as I expected. But in the end I didn't mind.
