2-hour Liverpool Highlights Private Tour

Make the most out of your visit and discover Liverpool's main attractions with your private tour guide

ABOUT THE 2-hour Liverpool Highlights Private Tour

This 2-hour private tour is the perfect introduction to Liverpool and a great way to orientate yourself in the city. Your local private tour guide will take you to must-see spots such as The Beatles Statue and the Victoria Monument, as well as walking you through crucial historical events such as the Liverpool Blitz.


Discover Britain’s best-kept secret

Though the city might be best known for the Beatles, its football team and the Grand National, there are many more reasons this northern metropolis manages to draw in well over 800,000 international visitors per year.

Once named ‘European Capital of Culture’, Liverpool plays host to both the Walker Art Gallery and the World Museum, and is packed full of exciting and iconic venues. Ranging topics from contemporary cubism to Egyptian embalming, most of the city’s more popular attractions are free to visit, and are clustered together around the waterfront area.

Together with your expert local guide, you’ll see the Victoria Monument, as well as the Albert Dock and the Beatles Statue. You’ll dive head-first into the city’s dark past as a center of the transatlantic slave trade, and explore the city’s WWII bombing (the ‘Liverpool Blitz’).

See Liverpool up-close

If your family, friends or tour group are popping into Liverpool for a quick trip, then make the most of your stay by booking a private tour that fits your schedule!

Want a more comprehensive overview of the city? Upgrade to the 3-hour Private City Tour! This tour takes an in-depth look into many other interesting aspects of life in Merseyside. You’ll also have time to visit St John’s Garden, Matthew Street and the Hillsborough Monument, and those lucky enough to join us on the 3-hour morning tour will be treated to an internal visit of the stunning central library.
