Introduction:

Although everyone associates Liverpool with the Beatles, we have so much more than that here to show you. I am Neil McDonald a local Liverpool lad and a Liverpool Blue Badge Tour Guide. I provide the most fun tours in Liverpool and I believe strongly in showing off our vibrant city and at the same time encouraging you to see how we are perfectly located to explore a much wider region for example a day out to the sleepy village of Port Sunlight, Chester or North Wales. You'll need much more than a day in Liverpool and I will help you whether you are an individual, couple or a group to have a wonderful time in our region and I would love you to book my guiding services to help you. I also run the extremely popular Liverpool Beatles Walk and have a range of combination Beatles Walking Tours combined with the famous Mersey Ferry, or the Radio City Tower, or the new British Music Experience which is the UK's museum of popular music in Liverpool.

There are lots of tours to choose from and we can help you to explore the World Heritage Site the waterfront and the Albert Docks, I am a keen football supporter and our stadium tours at Anfield the home of Liverpool FC are superb. Our parks are amazing, I love architecture and history and of course you can not be a tour guide in Liverpool without knowing the childhood homes of the Fab4, the places they played and of course the Cavern Club the new Cilla Black statue and we can show you them all.

Whether your a family, group or a Tour Operator I strongly suggest you book a mini break and if you email me I will help you to put together a fun itinerary and explain our charges and the tours available. I can also arrange transport for you from a 6 seater people carrier to a 49 seater executive air conditioned motor coach.
