This was clearly one of the highlights of our trip. Meet the ticket agent at the designated train station and secure your tickets for the entire day. It's very easy and the directions are clear. Once you get off the train in Liverpool, a short walk down to Albert Dock brings you to the museum And meeting point for the a magical a Mystery Tour. You will visit Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane, John, Paul and Goerge's homes and conclude at the Cavern Club. This is a give you the chills kiind of tour, essential for any Beatles Fan. So glad we did this!
Weather did not cooperate but I would strongly recommend the tour if your a Beatle fan.the cavern club was awesome
All good but the map of Liverpool provided was not big enough or clear enough.
Loved wandering through the museum, recalling fond memories from my youth. Marveled at how these four young men transformed the world in so many ways. Also loved seeing the sights of Liverpool and the places the Beatles grew up on the Magical Mystery Tour. Our guide was funny and informative.
Great trip but you need bigger maps. You can get them free from Liverpool so why not include them in the packet?
This was a very nice tour, the lady who met us at the train station (a blonde lady) was terrific, she gave us great explanation about everything and we had no problems finding our way in Liverpool. The Beatles story was fantastic as was the Magical Mystery Tour. I just wish we would have been able to get off the bus where John Lennon lived and maybe little less time where Paul and George lived. A lot of good music was written in his house where he lived with Aunt Mimi. The tour guide was very nice
Wonderful tour! Just wish we had longer to explore this vibrant city!
The museum was interesting and the tour to the various sights was great.
Although I am not a Beatles fan, (I booked for my wife), I loved the Magical Mystery tour, the tour guide was excellent. There was nothing overly exciting about the Beatles Story, especially to a dedicated fan, but there were so good displays.
There is not a strong enough superlative to convey my pleasure -- but, "perfect" is as close as it gets.
Had a fabulous day. Everything went well. Loved the Beatle story and the Magical Mystery tour. Trains were on time. Highly recommended.
For a Beatles fan this is an ultimate tour. The tour guide on the Magical Mystery Tour bus was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and easy to talk to. We were really impressed with Liverpool , great museums , being in the Cavern Club is surreal.
Very enjoyable trip. Everything went to plan. Liverpool lovely city and Magical Mystery Tour was great with very informative guide and great seeing where they all grew up. A must to do when visiting the UK.
We loved the Beatles and Liverpool Day Trip. Loved our tour guide. He was fun and knowledgeable. We included the National Trust Tour so able to go into homes of John Lennon and Paul McCartney. My favorite thing was hanging out at the Cavern Club!!! Highly recommend this package deal.
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.
