We did the Beatles tour with Smoggy as the driver and Chris as the the guide. What a fantastic tour with so much information and such entertainment. Chris was great offering to take photos for anyone that wanted them in penny lane and strawberry fields and doing a selfie of himself!!!
The following day we did the tour of Liverpool and Damion was the guide who was equally great too
Both Chris and Damions knowledge were excellent
Would definitely recommend doing these tours as there is so much history in such a great city
Great value for money

Great tour showing us around Liverpool with a slant on Beatles landmarks in particular.

We were pleasantly surprised by the knowledge, wit and entertainment provided by our guide (whose name I didn't catch unfortunately), who sang and played Beatles songs on his guitar throughout, while giving all manner of information and becoming an impromptu photographer for all at the Strawberry Fields and Penny lane sites we stopped at to take in more closely.

Our driver Ian was also very cheery and friendly.

As a Beatles fan, I would highly recommend this 90 minute journey through nostalgia and taken in combination with the Beatles Story museum experience (which was also excellent) represents tremendous value for money.

This is our second time we have been on this first-class tour. Which I think says it all. Well worth the money Once again, Damien entertained us, on his acoustic guitar singing many Beatles popular songs along the tour and sharing interesting facts about the Fab Four, the stories behind songs and how they got their titles, plus many interesting facts about other Liverpool famous celebrities. We were not disappointed and would without doubt strongly recommend this tour to anyone, of all ages. The staff were brilliant and very friendly, we were not rushed and would answer loads of questions with interesting replies. They truly made you feel very welcome, just like the first time. A credit to their employer. Tip make sure you use the "Free glass" of Presco voucher at The Philharmonic pub, just to see the gentleman's toilets!!! It's the pub Paul McCartney and James Corbyn visited and did a gig during Carpool Karaoke. Pop in to the two cathedrals whist you're at it.

Big Thankyou to the girl at the kiosk for the city bus tours (sorry I didn’t get your name - blonde hair in pony tail wearing red jacket) but I came to you 2 days running as I planned my day for showing 2friends from Kent ( who were visiting 1st time and arriving on cruise ship Anthem of the Seas on 22/10/21)
The girl at the Kiosk was so patient as I dithered over which but tour to book and despite other bus company reps who were working at same kiosk trying to pursuance me to book their tour buses, I admired your confidence and sincerity in assuring me what your tours actually offered. It was thanks to you I booked your tours and not any of the others.
On the day 22/10/21 we purchased 3 Beatles Museum & Beatles City Tours which meant we had time to visit Beatles Tour in Albert Dock immediately prior to boarding the tour bus, so no waiting around. We were lucky to have the front seats upstairs on the tour bus and our tour guide host for the day was Dom (from Manchester) but he knew his stuff about Liverpool and the Beatles and had his passengers singing along throughout the tour as he played various Beatles songs on his guitar. As Liverpool is my home city I was able to add my own knowledge when he asked for it and my friends and I found this way of sightseeing far better and more interactive than being sat on a tour bus, wearing headphones listening to a pre-recorded monotone voice. The tour bus lasts 90 mins and It was entertaining and informative from start to finish. Well done everyone. you were all great ambassadors for Beatles Bus & City Tours. No 1 in fact 👍👏👏👏

We booked on impulse a City and Beatles tour as whilst we were not necessarily looking for a complete Beatles experience we were keen to see some of the history as well as the sights of the city. We weren't disappointed at all with both the quality of the tour and the informative and funny commentary provided by one of the guides (Chris). Both myself and my wife learned a great deal about the history of Liverpool and the Beatles and came away extremely impressed. We were also able to use our tickets for the Red Route City tour the following day which again proved worthwhile. If you are looking for a tour that is geared more towards the Beatles and Beatlemania this might not be enough but we definitely felt it was great value for money and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending in the future.

Great value for money, did the 10:30am tour on Thursday 9th Sept before the heavy downpour in the afternoon. Damien the guide was brilliant, spoke very passionately about his city & the Beatles, he kept us all well entertained with his knowledge & even gave us a couple of songs accompanied by his guitar which added a nice touch. We learned a lot about what inspired the lyrics to some of the Lennon & McCartney songs, it all made me feel very emotional, that’s just the way I am, had the same feeling when I was in the Cavern Club the day before, I’ve always been a big fan of the Beatles & this tour was the highlight of our two day trip to Liverpool, would fully recommend this tour.

I booked this tour 24 hours online before the scheduled departure. I was so happy I booked the tour, the departure at 3:30 was full, so I would highly recommend to book and not assume you can just turn up and jump on. The information provided was in depth, the host and the driver were funny, witty and entertaining. You were able to see iconic sights relatable to The Beatles. You were able to get a picture with the iconic “Penny Lane” road sign, and the gates leading to “Strawberry Fields”, John Lennon’s house, Paul McCartney house, I Would highly recommend.

The ease of booking; the friendliness of the staff on hand; the information on the bus; the musical interludes, the interest; the enthusiasm of all the team involved; the length of time of the tour and comfort despite it being a very cold day. The price was fair especially taking into the consideration the content and finally after the tour we were heading to Chinatown for the New Year celebrations and the team insisted we got on a city tour bus and they would "drop us off to save walking on such a cold day" we were told. They even waited for a short while we went to the loo ... now Pauls No. 180 bus on Penny Lane wouldn't have done that! Thanks all involved with Liverpool City Sights Tours even bi-lingual .... Scouse & English. Loved it all. Rod B

While we were on a short city break in Liverpool, we decided to book the City and Beatles Tour - Blue Route. Definitely the right Tour to choose as it gives a short tour round the city centre then for the majority of the time concentrates on the Beatles Tour (which suited me). Very informative guide (Tony) gave a detailed background on the Fab 4, most of which I knew, but still very interesting. They allow you off the bus at Penny Lane and Strawberry Field for photos, Tony kindly turning photographer for everyone! 90 minutes flew by, but was a very interesting and informative tour, helped by Tony and not forgetting our driver (think it was Smeggs) who's driving was very professional, didn't feel thrown about at all! Highly recommend this tour even if you have little interest in the Beatles (like my wife), she even found it very enjoyable.

Fantastic tour led by Damion. It was great to learn more about the most iconic band of all time as we saw the sights that made up their childhood growing up in Liverpool. It was really interesting how Damion linked the places we were seeing to their song lyrics, and I appreciated being able to get off the bus to get photos by the Penny Lane and Strawberry Field signs. My favourite part of the tour has to be Damion playing Beatles songs on guitar as we drove around, which brought the whole tour to life and created a lovely warm atmosphere. Would definitely recommend, whether you’re a hardcore Beatles fan or (like me) didn’t know much about them at all going in!
