IMPORTANT NOTE! PLEASE DO NOT BOOK WITHOUT GIVING THIS TOUR GUIDE A FEW DAYS NOTICE DUE TO WORK & TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS, THANK YOU! I'm a singer/songwriter who was born in Liverpool and started out as a musical Liverpool tour guide about 4 years ago. I always had a passion for the Merseybeat era and the Liverpool city itself with it's very colourful history. So it was a simple choice for me to become a tour guide for my city. I try to encapsulate some of my passion in every tour and accompany it with a little tune or three on each of my trips too. Hope to provide you with a bit of Liverpool 'Scouse' wit, humour, entertainment and history on one of my tours, current Covid restrictions allowing. Hope to see you all soon!

Jimmy is really nice and knowledgeable. He makes the tour really interesting because he's a really good communicator and he makes all the stories fun and captivating. He goes above and beyond to answer all your questions and show you all the cool details. Not your typical free tour! Totally recommend it!
