This hop on hop off tour is a must in Liverpool if you wan to see all the highlights of the city in approximately an hour. There are 13 stop points and the buses are very punctual on time. Their guides are extremely witty and very informative. You would be tempted to go around a second time. We joined the... More

We often do open top tours when visiting new places, and am so glad we did this one. The tour guides, John (driver) and Paul, were brilliant, particularly Paul - very very witty but at the same time very informative. Would definitely recommend it. Great value for money and you can hop on and hop off at any time with... More

We were looking to do the hop on hop off bus and we went with this company as their bus arrived first. It was the best decision. The tour is well worth doing and is the best way to learn about Liverpool. We got off the bus once and so we experienced 2 tour guides. The first guide was a... More

Lucky with weather on a sunny but cold day. Done as part of a double with the ferry so was great value. Really interesting commentary and with stops at regular intervals it is possible to get on and off and actually see the sights. The guide was full of local facts and made the whole trip really interesting.

That much so we even completed it again the next... More

A good way to go around the town and see all the sights. It was possible to hop on and off at various points and we made good use of it. A concession price was available.

I've lived in Liverpool all my life (I'm 63 this year) but I never knew so much about my own city until I went on City Explorer tour bus, the guide 'Marie' was so knowledgeable and so interesting, she made the experience informative and fun, just so good, also felt very safe with our driver 'Colin' as well.
