Gary was an excellent guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about the film locations near the city centre and the actors involved and had a wonderful memory and fund of associated stories. He was fluent and very entertaining and engaging.

Fantastic walking tour of Liverpool’s film and television locations. I’m local and has been wanting to do this for a while, and I wasn’t disappointed! Gary is a fantastic guide - very knowledgeable, passionate but funny too! My wife and I ended up on a private tour, and Gary was very friendly and conversational throughout. The tour takes your to part of Liverpool you may not visit otherwise, and definitely makes you notice beautiful buildings that you’d otherwise just walk past! Thoroughly recommend.
