We did the 2-hour walking tour.
Despite intermittent rain we had a great time for just over 2 hours led by the charismatic, entertaining and knowledgeable Jenna.
She asked if we wanted history, architecture or music and we said all three and that is exactly what we got.
We entered a few buildings - all worthwhile and had more or less non-stop flow of fun facts and stories.
It was great to be met at our hotel and to finish at a venue of our choice.
A great way to see the city at the start of a visit so you know where to return to.
Thanks Jenna

Fantastic tour and a wonderful way to see Liverpool at it's best. I really can't thank Neil and Claire enough for their communications both before the tour commenced and Claire during the tour. Claire is a fantastic tour guide and took us to places we had requested to visit, she was informative and friendly, sharing her knowledge about all Liverpool's remarkable sights. I would not hesitate to book with Brilliant Tours Ltd, next time I'm in the area.

Neil was very knowledgeable and helped us to enjoy the tour despite terrible weather. 2 members of our party were unable to do the tour so there were only four of us in the end. We intend to do the tour again with all 6 of us next time and really look forward to doing it all over again because it was so good the first time round!

The transport was comfortable, clean, and spacious. I would have no hesitation in recommending this service to anyone! Do it!!

We had a wonderful private bus tour with Rob. There were 20 of us Beatles' fans, and we thoroughly enjoyed the commentary and stops along our 4 hour tour. We had the opportunity to see the city of Liverpool with stops at their amazing library and different neighborhoods, besides John and Paul's childhood homes, Penny Lane, and many other sights. The time at the Beatles' Experience was fabulous. Rob knew the answer to all of our questions and he has such a wonderful demeanor and sense of humor. I highly recommend this tour and the company.

Are you looking to tour Liverpool - I highly recommend Brilliant Liverpool Day Tours! Within two emails Neil McDonald was able to customize a full day tour which included The Beatles, Liverpool City Culture (rise / fall / rise), Liverpool FC, Peaky Blinders and more... Neil paired me off with tour guide Rob Downs; Rob's extensive historical knowledge of Liverpool was quite impressive. Considering this was a private tour, Rob kept the conversation going throughout the 7 hour day - no easy task! Within 1/2 hour of our first stop it was like visiting a friend from another city - interaction was seamless not forced. One funny note - Rob is an avid Liverpool FC fan - when we entered the stadium we were presented with audio devices... Rob said put that away I'll do it as we go along. Truth be told he stopped at every section and provided the history of the club in detail. When we toured the museum he explained again detail the trophies and what it meant to the club along with the players from different era's and where they are today. Truthfully couldn't have asked for a better day! Thank you Neil and Rob; Well done!

Neil McDonald of Brilliant Liverpool Tours arranged a day in Liverpool for us and was so responsive and delightful to work with. Neil provided to us Jenna, our brilliant tour guide, and thanks to her Liverpool became one of our favorite cities to tour on this trip. Jenna was an experienced and delightful guide with in-depth knowledge of the city and all things Beatles! If you travel to Liverpool and desire to maximize your time, book with Brilliant Liverpool Tours and ask for Jenna -- she will not disappoint!

Our group of 20 spent 2 wonderful days with Rob as our guide. He showed us more than we could imagine in Liverpool in Day 1 , then Chester, Aqueduct in Wales, and Port Sunlight Day 2. He was unbelievably knowledgable and able to adapt the tour to our wishes. WE could not have asked for more!!! Thank you Rob!

That’s a lovely reply & a great review and we are delighted. I know about this as I asked Rob specifically to do this tour for me personally as I was taken in to hospital at short notice & I needed to make sure we put our top guide on your tour - which was tailor made for your group & I was so concerned that I might have let you down by not doing the tour personally. I’m on the mend all went well & Claire & I took Ron as our guests to the tourism awards recently as a thank you for all his 5 star trip advisor reviews and I will think of something for him as a surprise from me (on top of his wages of course!) & I’ll pass on the review which I know he will be delighted with. Thanks again Neil

Our guide, Rob, is a lifelong Liverpool native and music enthusiast. He was expert in tailoring the tour to our needs ( we have been to Liverpool in the past). He showed us places we never would have seen ourselves and intertwined “deep cuts” of musical history. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour!

You'll never walk alone when you are with Rob Downs our brilliant tour guide.

I organised a weekend in my home city of Liverpool for 20 friends who came from all around the country, many were visiting the city for the first time. Neil McDonald from Brilliant Tours came highly recommended as someone who would help put a tour together. Neil was so helpful and made suggestions for a great 3 hour tour. History, culture and The Beatles were the themes. Neil arranged Rob Downs to be our blue badge guide. Rob contacted me ahead of the weekend and made sure I was happy with our itinerary. When we did meet up it felt like meeting an old friend.
We had a tour bus that picked us up from The Pullman Hotel, incidentally an excellent hotel. The Three Graces at the Pier Head was our first stop followed by stops at the Central Library for a visit to the Picton Reading Room, the Anglican Cathedral and then a drive out to Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields and the childhood homes of Lennon and McCartney. Actually all the things seen in James Corden's Paul McCartney Carpool Karaoke. Rob actually sent me relevant clips from the show.
Rob was excellent. Knowledgeable and funny, he was a non-stop source of information and humour. He engaged with every person on the tour, photographs, questions, recommendations,nothing was too much trouble.
A wonderful tour, worth every penny of the relatively modest cost.
