Fortunatley we had glorious weather the combination ticket was purchased online and was good value for moneyWe travelled on 2 separate buses the first driver and guide were really pleasant and informative ( the guide was female)The second driver and guide were both male and younger and we felt tried too hard to be witty sometimes bordering on disrespectful
This was the worst tour we have ever taken. The bus did not having proper lower level seating to see the city and there were less than 20 seats. And, some of the seats did not face a window which were to small to see some of the buildings. The tour guide was on the top of the bus. One could not understand most of what he said due to the poor sound system on the bus. And, it did not have the latest equipment on the bus for people to have ear plugs to listen to the narration. Awful tour and I would NOT recommend this from Viator. As far as I'm concerned, Viator should be returning our money for a tour that was substandard including the equipment used.

What I loved about the hop-on/hop-off is the explanation was done by the very amusing and well informed Tony.
I liked it much better than the usual headphones.
When we arrived to do the River Cruise first thing in the morning, it was cancelled because of the fog.
Getting your money back however was no problem.
Fortunately the weather got better and we were able to take the ferry cross the Mersey as planned.
