We decided to find a walking tour to see some of the sights in Liverpool and chose this one based on the excellent reviews. It was the best decision we made! Jean was so friendly, we felt immediately at ease in her company. Her knowledge of the city was truly incredible. We learnt so much about the history of Liverpool . Jean delivered the tour in such an interesting and sensitive way. She must meet so many different people, all who have different beliefs, cultures and experiences so to be able to relate to everybody and conduct the tour in such a honest, tactful and energetic way is a true skill. Jean told us she loves her job and it shows. In one of the buildings we visited a member of staff said hello to the group and shouted out that Jean was the best tour guide in Liverpool. I think he was right ! We have taken many tours on our travels and Jean’s was the best. Thank you so much Jean it was a pleasure to meet you.

We booked the walking tour and were SO fortunate to have Jean as our walking guide. She was friendly, charming, energetic and extremely knowledgeable of the city. She is passionate about the history and architecture and you feel her enthusiasm for the city she loves. If we returned to Liverpool I would definitely want to share this experience with them.
