We always use Guru Walk as am confident they will deliver a great tour. Terry was fun, informative and it’s obvious he genuinely loves his city, Liverpool. He told us lots of interesting facts we’d not heard on previous tours of Liverpool. There was a little too much on the Beatles but still interesting. Would happily join another tour run by Terry if available, next time we visit Liverpool.

La experiencia con Beatriz fue extraordinaria. El tiempo se pasó volando gracias a las anécdotas e informacion con las que aderezo la visita, a los sitios que nos ayudó a conocer y descubrir. Si Liverpool nos enamoró fue en buena parte gracias a ella. Muy muy recomendable. Muchas gracias!
