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!

Tour muy entretenido. Aunque es en inglés, Jimmy se preocupa mucho porque todos entendamos lo que explica. Su idea es muy original. Sabe muchísimo sobre los Beatles, lo cuenta con pasión y además toca y canta muy bien. Cuenta las historias de forma entretenida, casi teatralizada. No os lo perdáis.

Jimmy was a knowledgeable guide providing information with a typical Liverpudlian sense of humour and a couple of songs thrown in for good measure. The tour is part historical and part musical, which suited me. I was expecting a two hour tour but it was close to three by the end. There's not really a lot of walking involved and there are plenty of stops. My group was quite small and there was a no-show, which meant a little more waiting around at the beginning than I'd have liked. If you like walking tours, give it a go.
