A Recent Review of this tour

We enjoyed our day with Ruth very much. We had asked to focus more on Chester, than Liverpool. She gave us everything we wanted in Chester and then opened her heart to us about her hometown, Liverpool. We finished with a mini-Beatles tour including Penny Lane, where she grew up. Touring with Ruth is truly touring with a local! Thank you so much for a fascinating day!
