We chose first class on the train which included breakfast on the way to Liverpool and dinner and drinks on the return. It was a relaxing way to enjoy the English countryside. Our tour guide at the station in London was very thorough in giving instructions on what to expect during the day and how to catch the return train. The tour included free time to explore the Beatles museum and other sites. In the afternoon there was a 1.5 hour guided bus tour of all the Beatles history with plenty of stops for picture taking. You could get off the bus and get up close for nice pictures. Both the driver and a guide offered history and stories on the beginning of the Beatles. When the tour was over the bus dropped you off near the Cavern Club where the Beatles frequently played. This was awesome with lots to see and souvenirs to purchase. You could have drinks while listening to the live music. You had the rest of the afternoon/evening to shop or sight see before catching the train back to London. I highly recommend this tour. Be prepared though because it is a very long day and you cannot take an earlier train back.

Most bus tours are just that. Sit on the bus and watch the sights go by. This was different because we were allowed off the bus at many sights for better pictures, a closer look, and a more detailed explanation of the sight. Our guide was fun, informed and a very good story teller who was reluctant to take my tip. We would do it again! We were in England for ten days and this tour was the perfect cherry on top of a great trip!

Took the train from London with easy check in with Viator. Walked to Beatle Story and enjoyed the museum, lunch at Pizza Express, and the bus tour of homes, schools, and church of each one of the Beatles. Saw the neighborhoods where they all grew up, including Penny Lane. Finally a visit to the Cavern for a brew. It was a special day and I recommend it to all Beatle fans.

Absolute must to see and do even if not a diehard Beatles fan. A do-it yourself tour and a bit vague getting tickets and information at Euston but all ok in the end. Mersey Docks and the Beatles Exhibition prepared to spend a lot of time there. Magical Mystery Bus Tour great but VERY limited time at each location so be prepared to race around. Train takes a couple of hours either way so a very long day but SOOO worth it

We book the first class train, I had done this tour before and I got a real good breakfast and diner, because it was the weekend they dont serve the breakfast or diner, instead they gave out coffe and muffins and not even good muffins dissapointed about this, they should have that information when you are booking. I could have had something to eat before boarding. Not worth the upgrade. But the Beatles Story and the Magical Mystery tour was Great

Oh my gosh! What can I say about this tour????? FANTASTIC! Up super early, get on the tube, head to Euston Rail Station, and 2 1/2 hours later you are walking through the streets of Liverpool. The street signs are really easy to follow,,head to Albert Dock and you are at the Beatles Story, the best museum in the world for Beatles fans. The train gets to town around 9:30. It's about a 20 minute walk to the museum and then you will have a good 2-3 hours to see all there is, shop for souvenirs, and grab some lunch in their cafe. At 2:00, you board the bus for the Magical Mystery Tour...Penny Lane, Beatles childhood homes, Strawberry Field iron gates, and lastly, The Cavern on Mathew Street. You can actually sit an listen to performers in The Cavern as you sip a drink or grab a sandwich before you head back toward Lime Street Rail Station for the train ride home at 6:30. The William Gladstone pub is right across the street from the end of Mathew Street...super cheap fish and chips and really good. It's a fantastic tour to take. The day is filled with everything you would want to see of the Beatles and their hometown.

BR-654504995 - First this booking start was from Euston train station at 650 am, which you needed to be 10-min early. No big deal, I was literally staying 5-10 minutes from the station. However, when I arrived at 0630 - I could not find the person responsible for the tour. Neither could the assistant from the Euston Station ticket booth. No one answered calls to the number on the voucher, and VIATOR does not have ANY immediate contact numbers listed on their website. I had FIRST CLASS SEATS. I WAS IN THE STATION. HOW MESSED UP IS IT THAT I HAD TO WATCH THE TRAIN LEAVE WITHOUT ME? I certainly couldn't afford to purchase train tickets without a tour discount. It would have been so much easier if the ticket vouchers were electronic, but they were not. Unfortunately, I feel that this will also fall on deaf ears. I guess thereis always a glitch occasionally, and I must be it this time.

Really enjoyed the Magical Mystery Tour. Informative guide, and stops at all the key Beatles places. Best of all was the Cavern Club. Lots of history and the live music was awesome.
