I love the culture in Liverpool and the Maritime History, and I love Liverpool's sporting heritage and support Liverpool Football Club. There are lots of things to do in Liverpool and I love showing them to visitors, including Cruise Ship Passengers and School groups around Liverpool, which is now the most vibrant UK city outside of London.
You cannot be a tour guide in Liverpool without loving the Beatles and other Liverpool Music. We are lucky as Liverpool is only about 90 minutes journey by coach to North Wales and the Medieval City of Chester is only 45 minutes away, and it is often difficult to fit everything in to a tour as you need so much more than a day in Liverpool. I always suggest that visitors choose a quality Liverpool City Centre Hotel and then ask me to show them around our amazing city and beyond.
I am a qualified Coach Driver and I have worked all around Europe, and I have lived in France and I can speak French to a good standard, although I do not charge extra as I am not a qualified French Guide, but I do love working with French Groups. I can work as a driver/guide and I have the use of licensed luxury vehicles from 8 seater Mercedes People Carriers to 49 seater executive air conditioned motor coaches.
A Recent Review of this guide
The association had a great day. Neil's suggestions for extra things to do such as to arrive by ferry across the Mersey and have a Scouser lunch, were great and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Will certainly use him again
