I still can't talk about this trip without crying! It was the most magical and fantastic day ever. after being a lifelong beatles fan, to actually be there was a big bucket list tick! A very long day, but one you did not want to end, if anything we would have loved to have been given the option to stay overnight and catch the train back the next day, so we could have continued the festivities at the cavern and stayed for the beatles tribute band that was coming on at 9.30pm, but we had to leave on a 6.30 train. If you are a beatles fan, i could not recommend this highly enough. well worth the long day, would do it again tomorrow! enjoy
I purchased this tour as a gift for my husband. I'm not a Beatles fan but found this tour very enjoyable, well organised and informative. My only disappointment was the Evan Evans Tour representative told us to allow 1hr 1/2 for the Beatle Story before going on the Magical Mystery Tour. Which we did, only to find that the Beatle Story was in 3 separate areas. The first part took 1hr 1/2 and had to miss the other 2 parts as we was booked on the Magical Mystery Tour. Maybe the Evan Evans Tours representative was not aware that it was in 3 parts, in which case you should make them aware to avoid disappointment.
This was a great trip! Thoroughly enjoyed the Beatles Story and Magical Tour bus. Wonderful guide, gave us plenty of info and the time for photo ops. Pointed out all the places Beatle fans would be interested in. Highly recommend it!
Enjoyed visiting the sites and learning about the song origins.
This trip was seamless! Make sure you go to the Liverpool Museum if you have extra time. They had a bunch of Beatles things there, too! and it was free!
I can't say enough good things about Viator. Every trip we had was excellent. We made the mistake of using a different one on our Nice, France portion later in this same visit and wow, it was awful. Learned my lesson. The train, organization, and making sure things were done and taken care of was just superb. The only thing is to make sure you ask what time the train leaves. We were told 6:30 AM when it was actually 7:07. While it's only about 40 minutes, at that time of morning we all could have used the extra sleep. Still, at least we were there in plenty of time. The tour itself was excellent.
Thoroughly enjoyable. We opted for the first class train tickets, which was a wonderful treat. Really treated well, with beverages, full meals and attentive service and wonderfully comfortable seats. The Beatles Story and the Magical Mystery (Bus) Tour were very enjoyable. The town shopping/central district is right between the train station and the docks (where the Beatles Story exhibition is located) is very pleasant and you can walk right past (or right into) the famous Cavern Club, where live music still plays every day.
Very enjoyable. Highly recommended for any level of Beatles fan!
The sites visited were great. The virgin train was confortable. The only problem was the cold windy rainy weather.
This was an awesome day trip! A must for any Beatles fan - from their heyday or not. The only thing I didn't realize was that there is no tour guide on this tour. I was met at the rail station and given an envelope with train tickets, a map of Liverpool and passes to get into The Beatles Story and to get on the Magical Mystery Tour bus...the rest is up to you! If I had realized that I would have done a little bit of research before going, but it's a pretty straight-forward and small city. Every part of the day was fantastic and to top it off, at the end of the bus tour, they drop you off at The Cavern Club - where we spent 2 hours listening to a brother duo who do covers of Lennon and McCartney songs. A great way to end a great day!
Excellent trip. Had a little trouble finding the girl at Euston Station but from then on everything was fantastic. A must for Beatles fans.
