Owner description: The Holy Grail of The Beatles trail. The place where it truly all began for the greatest music phenomenon of the 20th century.
Reviewed 23 August 2014

As a Beatles fan it is a definite must to visit.

Our guide Roag is passionate, knowledgeable and highly entertaining and apparently much nicer looking than his brother Rory.

The basement club is highly evocative of those days gone by and an absolute treat with some sparkling glimpses into the Beatles early days.

Low headroom in a couple of places to look out for. The Health & Safety people would have had a field day way back in the early 60's as you can feel just how cramped it must have been.

As the only Liverpool locals on the tour (about 50 minutes and it flew by) we especially enjoyed it - taking pride in visitors seeing something unique and well presented in our city.

Keep up the good work and well done to all at the Casbah

We loved the Casbah Coffee Club! It really is a little gem. It was only 2 of us on the tour and it was amazing seeing the paintings the beatles did and learning the history. Any true beatle fan will really love this place; It is on the pricey side but well worth it. Make sure you make this a destination! You will not regret it!

Very entertaining guide, Ro, giving first hand info on the start up of the Beatles. We'll worth it with a passionate guide with inside info.

In a way - it all started in this small basement. If you love Beatles, this is a must. We met Pete Bests younger brother, and he was a good storyteller. Possible to improve, but very authentic. And mind your head if you are more than 6 foot.

Amazing place, Rory Best took us on a trip more than 50 year back, guided by one who was there, great storyteller.
