“Fab way to see a fab city!”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Having had Phil as our guide for a Beatles tour last year and returning to Liverpool this year I remembered seeing a poster in his cab for a history tour which we duly booked and had a great few hours seeing this amazing city which is where my family are from. My husband likes facts, I like stories - and this tour was perfect for both of us. We thoroughly explored the city centre and Phil was a mine of information, but what came across most was his obvious love for his city. We ended up at the Anglican cathedral which is such a beautiful building inside and was a perfect way to complete a great tour, a highlight of our visit in fact! Phil, please create a third tour for next time :)

“Great Liverpool Tour”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We had a great Liverpool History Tour with Phil on Aug. 10, 2013. Phil met us promptly at our ship and took us on an interesting and fun tour of Liverpool with him even joining us in the back to explain things and show us pictures. He was very professional and eager to show us what we wanted to see. I had asked for Liverpool and a little of the Beatles and he did a great combination for us. We would love to go back.

“Amazing value for money”
Reviewed 21 June 2013 via mobile

Phil was our guide and he enthralled all four of us with his obvious love of Liverpool and its history.the tour lasted 3 hours and is amazing value for money. Phil misses out very little and climaxed his tour with a really great trip around the Anglican cathedral. Anyone with any interest in this amazing city should do this tour.

“A pleasant day with Phil Gerrard's Taxi History Tour of Liverpool”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

We had one day to see Liverpool so we booked Phil's Taxi History Tour. Phil picked us up at our hotel on the Albert Docks and led us around town for the next 3 hours.
He provides a highly entertaining tour which connects both British and American history. While he points out all the great Georgian architecture, he tosses in some pop culture history as well including the Beatles and the lesser known (but equally zany) the Scaffold (In My Liverpool Home).

He makes lots of stops for photo opportunities. Also included is a personal guided tour of the Anglican Cathedral. Phil is passionate about his "Liverpool Home" and it shows

At the end of the tour he dropped us off at the Sudley House museum so we could tour that in the afternoon. We enjoyed Phil's history tour and we think you will too.

“The Best Way To See Liverpool”
Reviewed 11 December 2012

This is a MUST DO! My parents and I had 1/2 of a day to spend in Liverpool, and this was simply the best way to spend it. It is a perfect way to spend a few hours if you want you are interested in more than the Beetles. Phil truly understands the history of the city and how it has evolved through the years. He blended music and audit into the tour to make it a complete experience. This was one of the highlights of a 3-week European tour.
