We enjoyed our cruise and found the history of the industrial landscape fascinating. Luckily the weather was neither too hot nor rainy, because you are sitting on the boat for a long time. We thought the tour guide knew his stuff very well, however it...More

Yes I am biased here as I love the ferry as I used to commute across from Seacombe thousands of times back in the 70s and 80s and am passionate about these great boats. My advice is to simply get a "Day Saver" and you...More

The Mersey Ferry or Dazzle Ferry as it is known locally takes you from Pier Head on a tour lasting approximately 50 minuets (if you don’t get off) with commentary highlighting various landmarks but first they explain why the ferry is called “Dazzle “ and...More

Great for something to do while visiting Liverpool. An alternative way to get from the Wirral to Liverpool and visiting Albert Dock. Very good value but take your own water as drinks on board are on the high price.

Loved this trip, a great way to see a different view of Liverpool centre and some of the Wirral side of the river as well. There is live commentary on the sights as the ferry passes by. Entry to the U boat museum in Birkenhead...More
