Ruth was a fabulous guide! She entertained the whole family, from my 6 year old son to my 67 year old father. She was a wealth of knowledge about The Beatles and the history of Liverpool. We were all very happy with her tour and would recommend her to anyone looking to tour the local area... with a local!
Lori BassmanUnited States
Loved the tour with Ruth! So easy - pick up at the hotel and private Beatles tour with lots of other commentary on life in Liverpool.
Lois O'RourkeUnited States
Ruth was a great guide and took us to all the Beatles sites listed in the itinerary except the Cavern Club because we had already been. She was gracious enough to stop at the church where my grandparents were married even though it wasn't on the itinerary so we could look around. I highly recommend Ruth and this tour.
David B.United States
Ruth was extremely knowledgeable about all things Beatles ,things you'll never see in the bus tours. She was born and raised on Penny Lane. As a result you will learn things that you never knew about the Beatles as well as Liverpool's expansive growth. Having been a student of the Beatles for decades I learned more then I anticipated.. I HIGHLY recommend Ruth and Tours by Locals.
Robert T.New York, NEW YORK, United States
Ruth is an amazing tour guide, who has in-depth knowledge of the history of Liverpool and especially The Beatles (she's a Liverpudlian who grew up on Penny Lane!). I had one day in Liverpool to do background research on a Beatles-related project (I'm in the music business) and Ruth was absolutely incredible, plus she introduced me to one of the original Quarrymen! You won't find a better Beatles' guide in Liverpool...I can't say enough good things about Ruth!
Steve HoctorUnited States
My wife and I want to sincerely thank Ruth for the fantastic job she did in showing us all the highlights of the Beatles & the beautiful city of Liverpool. We couldn't of asked for more. She's a fantastic tour guide. We'll most definitely recommend Ruth to family & friends. Someday we'll be back to visit Liverpool & hopefully be able to spend time with her exploring the highlights of Liverpool & area. Thanks Ruth, for making our Liverpool/Beatles experience so memorable and fulfilling.
Joseph BakerUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with Ruth. We visited the childhood neighborhoods of the Beatles and also learned a lot of interesting information about the history and architecture of Liverpool. Ruth was engaging and kind. She not only designed the tour according to our wishes, but adjusted it throughout the day when we had a request.
Ron PfistererUnited States
Ruth is a great tour guide and very friendly. She showed all the Beatles spots and several Liverpool highlights. We were very pleased with it.
Joe KentUnited States
Ruth was fantastic! Her home grown knowledge of The Beatles was impressive, plus her ability to relate to our needs was great. Ruth also showed us around the finer points of Liverpool, which helped the rest of our stay.
Jeaninne GarzaArmada, MI, United States
Ruth was an excellent tour guide! She was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We asked her to show us every Beatles site in the city and she did. She also gave us a tour of the churches and city. She went above and beyond our expectations to give us the best tour of Liverpool. I cannot recommend her highly enough! It will be the best money you spend on a tour with Ruth!
Sondra HeydtUnited States
Ruth scheduled our tour for 1 pm - 5 pm.She stated that her car was an Audi Q7 fitting 4 adults & 2 children.She showed up in a small Ford. She was very nice but not descriptive enough in the areas we toured.At about 3:00 she started to worry about the traffic at 5 in the port.We invented and sold a product and that started her questioning us continuously about how she could market a product that she wanted to invent. She dropped us off early and that was it. I respectfully request a refund for that day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very sorry my tour did not meet your expectations and has led you to request a refund. I informed you that my car had to go in for a repair when we met and you stated you were happy to proceed in the hired 2017 Ford C-max 7 seater as it had ample room for the two of you. The tour ended 30 minutes early because you requested to go back to the ship as you didn't want to see some highlights of the tour. I take great pride in my city and ensuring all my travellers have the best experience.
Sarah F.United States
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!
Christopher JacksonIslip Terrace, NY, United States
Ruth lived in Liverpool all her life and gave us a great tour including her street Penny Lane. Great Beatles tour would highly recommend Ruth.
Sue MenkesUnited States
Ruth's Beatles Tour stands out above the rest! We spent a delightful day in Liverpool with this warm, personable, enthusiastic & knowledgeable guide.Ruth took us to all the famous Beatles places and also gave us an overview of surprisingly lovely Liverpool! This tour stands out above the rest because Ruth has a personal connection to Quarry Men band member,Colin Hanton, original drummer of the group, so we met and spoke to him during our tour. Highly recommend Ruth who was born and raised on "Penny Lane"!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind feedback It was a pleasure meeting you all I hope you all enjoyed the rest of your trip Best wishes Ruth
Judi FeyUnited States
Our tour of Liverpool with Ruth was wonderful . She was fun, took us all over, was very knowledgeable, so many details s nd anecdotes. She is a good driver. It was just the two of us so she was able you customize just what we wanted. 5 out of 5 gorgeous sure ! Thanks, Ruth Judi and Richard
Ruth was prompt, waiting for us at the pre-arranged time and place. She arrived complete with Beatles masks and a "sunny disposition"! We had an excellent tour of the major places associated with the Beatles. Ruth was very knowledgeable and passionate about the topic of the Beatles and her home city. We had a lot of fun and laughs spending time with Ruth. Her car was clean and in good condition complete with music of the Beatles, and pillows featuring the Beatles. I would definitley recommend Ruth.
Ron C.United States
Ruth tries very hard to make the day an enjoyable one. She was very flexible in putting our tour together, and waiting for us at the British Open. We felt very comfortable with her and enjoyed our shortened Beatles tour so we could attend the Open.
Ruth made our visit to Liverpool very memorable with her enthusiastic, knowledgeable and interesting tour and stories of the Beatles and the sites of Liverpool. She was very friendly and flexible, continually asking us if there was anything else we wanted to see. She actually took her own extra time to show us the beautiful Liverpool Cathedral and encouraged us to walk inside. What a bonus! It was spectacular! Ruth's Toyota mini van was very comfortable for our group of four adults. Best tour!

Larry BertagniUnited States
The four of us just loved Ruth Taylor. A native from Penny Lane had many stories and sights to share with us about Liverpool and the Beatles then and now. Her Beatles tour took us to the Cavern where the Beatles began to Ringo Starr's childhood neighborhood. Please note that her car was a typical SUV that will comfortable sit only three adults. If you are extremely slim, you can fit three in the rear.
Maureen GlassUnited States
Ruth was an excellent ambassador and guide for her native city of Liverpool. She was on time and showed us many more insider sights of Liverpool than we ever could have seen on a ship' s excursion. She went out of her way to accommodate us and when we mentioned we were looking for a soccer ball from the Liverpool football team she took us to the stadium and the official team store! Our tour lasted 4 hours and we now have a wonderful feel for the city of Liverpool and would love to come back thanks to Ruth
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your great feedback , it was a pleasure to meet you all , I hope you will come back and visit again , Best Wishes Ruth

To say we had a memorable day with Ruth is a gross understatement. Ruth picked us up at our hotel right on time with a smile and wonderful disposition. Ruth's knowledge and expertise of the 'Beatles Tour' we contracted for was exceptional. We saw everything we wanted to experience and then some. Her newer model car was very comfortable for us as well, especially for me being 6' 4" tall. During the day we changed up a few things from our original itinerary and this was absolutely no problem for Ruth!!

Would highly recommend a tour with Ruth, you will not be disappointed. We feel we've made a new friend.
Maxine BaerwaldtUnited States
Our guide Ruth did an excellent job in taking us though Liverpool! Our tour began with a walk through the city to see the White Star Line (The Titanic) headquarters, now a beautiful hotel. We went to The Cavern, where the Beatles began. Then we drove around and saw many historical sites. Ruth was very charming, nice, and very knowledgeable! We would greatly recommend Ruth to anyone visiting Liverpool!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: think you for kind comments !! It was a real pleasure to meet you all !! Really pleased you enjoyed your day !! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your cruise !!
Evelyn J.Suffolk, VA, United States
Our tour with Ruth was part of a 12 day cruise to the British Isles and without a doubt this day was one of our greatest memories. Ruth grew up on Penney Lane and the stories she shared with the four of us who grew up with the Beatles were so much fun. Our day was simply delightful. We even got to see the "Yellow Submarine." We ended our Beatles tour at the Albert Docks and even got to see the "Giants". We cannot say enough about Ruth and Tours by Locals. The Jones and the Nixons.
Robert JacksonUnited States
Wow- what a great Beatles tour! I especially liked how Ruth provided the background history which made the later "Beatle moments" more meaningful. Excellent knowledge of the subject and very friendly. Highly recommended - no kidding folks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your great feedback it really was a pleasure showing you around our fab city !! Hope to see you both again in the future Enjoy the rest of your travels Best wishes Ruth

Loren BlindeUnited States
Ruth gave me a splendid tour. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and as Beatles Taxi's whizzed past I was thinking "My tour is better than yours!" Her local anecdotes and personal experiences were priceless. She also has connections to see places others may pass by. I am 100% delighted with the experience and not only treasure the tour but a new friend. I hope to come back and do another tour with Ruth. A+++

My wife and I enjoyed every minute with Ruth because besides being a great guide she is a wonderful caring person and will tailor your tour based on your particular interests. If you're looking for a personal guide of Liverpool you can't go wrong booking a tour with Ruth H.

We really enjoyed our time with Ruth. She's a true fan of Liverpool and made us feel as if we had a personal friend there. Had some great Beatles moments, seeing things I never thought I'd see and hearing her stories about those things. It was a great experience. There are places I'll remember - and Liverpool and Ruth are two of them!!!
