Ruth did an excellent job showing us the Beatle sites we were interested in. We gave her a list of our priority interests and she did the rest. In addition she pointed out city landmarks and interesting info on it. Excellent knowledge of her city. Even though it was raining she was a trooper taking pictures for us. She was very friendly and answered any question we had. Enjoyed it tremendously and would highly recommend her to others.

I thoroughly enjoyed my tour! The tour exceeded my expectations in that I didn't expect to see as much as I did. Ruth's enthusiasm and love for Liverpool and the Beatles is amazing! Her personal knowledge and sense of humor made the whole tour exceptional. If I come back for another tour, I will want to see Ruth again!

This was the perfect tour for me, a life-long Beatles fan. The guide went well beyond expectations to make sure we saw everything we wanted to, stopped and got out of the car at each site, and that we had great photos to remember it all. She even went out of her way to accommodate our travel plans. Highly recommend!!

Ruth was a knowledgeable, friendly guide who gave us a memorable picture of the Beatles and Liverpool. She got us into all kinds of tight spaces so that we could have a close-up view of Liverpool. Her car was comfortable, and she was an excellent driver. We all think that we got our money's worth and enjoyed every minute of the tour.

My wife Trish and I were visiting Liverpool for the first time together. Ruth was a bottomless well of Liverpool and Beatle facts (she even met Sir Paul years ago), a great driver, was super flexible and grew up in the same neighborhood that Trish is from. What a magical tour we had together. Won't soon forget it. Thank you Ruth!

Ruth was wonderful. She made us feel welcome and as if we were her family visiting from the US. She knew everything about the Beatles and her beautiful home town of Liverpool. We invited her to come visit us next time she was in Arkansas and would be happy to host her. I highly recommend spending anytime you have in Liverpool with Ruth. She made us fall in love with Liverpool - our best guide yet in the British Isles.

Ruth gave us a great Beatles tour in Liverpool. We saw John's house, Paul's house, George's house, even Ringo's house! She had some great personal stories that really made the tour special. If you are a Beatles fan this tour is a must. Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields, Eleanor Rigby's grave, the church where John and Paul met and so much more. Wonderful tour and great company.

Ruth was a fantastic tour guide! My partner and I got a great four hour "Beatles" tour of Liverpool, by the very personable and knowledgeable Ruth, and we were so glad we booked this time with her. The tour was much more than just about the Beatles - we learned and saw more about Liverpool the city, as well. Ruth is from there, so she knew the city and its history inside and out. She picked us up at our hotel right on time, and we could not have had more fun with her. My highest possible recommendation!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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"!

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.

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!

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!!

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.

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!!!
