Fantastic ! Enjoyed Liverpool, The Beatles Experiences was a must for all fans, and The Magical Mystery Tour was the topping on the cake. This tour is a great day trip outside London, great opportunity to explore by yourself, plenty places to eat and shop .
The tour was excellent. Our guide was knowledgable and credible. We saw all the important items in the Beatles history. I only wish that we had stayed the night to see more of the Liverpool area.
Yeah yeah yeah I think I'm in love with Liverpool it's easy cos I know. Trains both ways ran on time and were comfortable. Beatles Story brilliant covering all aspects of the Beatles brilliant career. Broken up by the Lennon Imagine exhibit. Had time to wander around the Mersey the setting of so much of the history of these times. Magical Mystery Tour in the afternoon covered all the sites of the early Beatles history with very knowledgeable guide. Now have a greater appreciation of the lyrics of Penny Lane and how it fits into their early lives. ( also saw cabs doing similar trips and would have preferred them as an option - a bit more intimate and can get into places a bus can't) Leftedown the road from the "new" Cavern and spent a great hour down there soaking up the atmosphere of what it would have been like all those years ago.
A must see for all the Beatles Fans out there. We met the tour director at the train station at 6:30 AM to pick up our tickets. Train left around 7:00 AM and was a little over two hours to get to Liverpool. In addition to the Beatles Museum, we also visited the two beautiful Anglican and Catholic Cathedrals that are on the same street in Liverpool. The bus trip in the afternoon was lots of fun - got to see where the Beatles grew up, Penny Lane, etc., and lots of Beatles music and singing on the bus. A long day but well worth it.
Wonderful trip - truly a magical mystery tour ! Must-do for all Beatles fans - only wish I had the option to stay at least overnight so that I could have spent more time listening to great live music at the legendary Cavern !
Makes me wanna go back to Liverpool again for another visit - this time for at least 2-3 days. Most of the tour is independent and self guided , but that just suits me fine as it allows me to decide how long I want to spend shopping for Beatles-related merchandise or otherwise, as well as how long I wanted to stay in the Cavern. The first class train ticket came with meals included, and the comfortable seating plus excellent wifi on board made the journey seem quite short. You have to find your own way when you arrive at Lime Street Station to the Beatles exhibition at Albert Dock and also your own way back from the Cavern to the station for the journey home, which was actually not too difficult especially with the help of the friendly locals.
Very good tour; loved experiencing the history and music of the Beatles.
We had an awesome time on this tour! The only thing that could have made it better would have been staying overnight, so that we could have enjoyed the band playing in The Cavern longer.
It was a wondeful experience, beyond that I´m a Beatles fan.
Everything was OK, the travel by train and the Magical Mystery Tour.
Liverpool is a great city indeed.
We were 5 people visiting this port. All of them were satisfied and glad with this travel.
Virgin Rail from London to Liverpool allowed us to enjoy the beautiful English countryside. We were able to make photos and explore Liverpool, be amazed at The Beatles Story, go inside the famous Cavern Club and take a guided tour to the homes of the Beatles, Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, and more. Wonderful time!!
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!
