Many Beatles fans make pilgrimage to Penny Lane in the South of the city, to see the street. It’s still a lively area, with independent businesses lining the street. There’s even a barber’s shop in the same spot referenced in the song.

It was a lot of fun. Liverpool is very clean and the people there were very friendly and kind. I plan on going back one day soon. I would recommend it to everyone.

First of all I had read other reviews where people said they had trouble finding the tour representative at the London train station. That was not my experience. The representative in uniform found me and was on time and very helpful. The train ride was nice. The Beatles story as well as the Magical Mystery Tour. If you love the Beatles this trip is worth it!

No problems with the first class Virgin Train and the full day Beatles Tour. On our printed form the meeting point was very unclear just stating Euston Square Station at 6.30am. The day before I checked Euston station where the trains departs from and noticed it was rather large but noticing the ticket area would be a good meeting place. We arrived at the small Euston Square Station well before time and thinking that because it was small it would be easy to see people. At 6.30 no one showed so ran to the close by Euston station going straight to the ticket area where a lady and a small group with printed tickets were standing. She explained that my ticket was not her companies and directed me to a non descript lady standing close by. She had no uniform, no flag or whatever you are supposed to look for. The young lady was very informative and we made the train in time. I showed her the printout saying Euston Square Station as the meeting place to which she said that it would looked into. La Vacanza Travel, designate clearly the meeting point, no station name mistakes and have your staff wear a distinctive company logoed vest.

This was a great tour! We enjoyed The Beatles Story self-guided display (with headphones) and could have spent more than 2 hours there---great pictures and stories---lots of background info about how the Beatles met and started playing together in the beginning years. The afternoon Magical Mystery tour was also excellent! We saw the childhood homes of the Beatles and learned about their families. We stopped for photos at many locations, including Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields. We enjoyed visiting the Cavern Club! Tips for future visitors: We arrived at the train station in London early and there was no tour representative there. We called the company and they were very helpful. Their representative arrived shortly thereafter and met us in the ticketing area. She had our tickets, maps, and recommendations about how to proceed once we arrived in Liverpool. There is no tour guide with you except on the Magical Mystery tour bus. We had purchased first class tickets for the train and enjoyed the trip and the breakfast on the way to Liverpool. We also had dinner on the return trip, which was ok, but not great. There is LOTS of walking on this trip. It is a full day, but so glad we decided to take this tour!
