The Beatles Story was full of interesting stories and information that we didn't know before. If it is crowded, start listening to the audio before you get started otherwise the beginning of the audio tour becomes rushed. There's a lot to listen to and see and it's a little difficult to keep up with the audio. Once you get the hang of it, it becomes easier and the crowds thin as you go along. Be sure and take a seat when you can and just take it all in. It is definitely worth your time to come in, be nostalgic and enjoy this tour!

This two hour tour flew by so quickly! The bus was warm and comfortable. Our driver, Ross, was so good navigating the streets of Liverpool. It was so much fun to hear the stories and information that Neil told us. We visited Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, saw the graveyard that Eleanor Rigby was buried in and visited the homes of all of the Beatles. It was definitely magical! Something we will remember fondly for the rest of our lives.

This is a must see in Liverpool if you are a Beatles. The audio guide is super informative and helpful. Lots of interesting background facts and comments from everyone in the band as well as the fifth Beatle ,Sir George Martin. Exhibits and photos were great too.

Fantastic guide Damien, very informative & he definately knows his subject, anlso an fab photographer!! Anne the driver lovely & friendly.

Nice end central location, well organized, and a broad explanation of the Beatles story.
