Neil was very accommodating and knowledgeable. He went beyond expectations by meeting us at train station, keeping our luggage in his car and dropping us at a different train station. He focused our tour on the Beatles as we asked but also included much interesting history about Liverpool. We all enjoyed our time with Neil.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your positive review. It was a pleasure to meet you and show you around Liverpool!

Neil picked us up right on time. He took us to see everything he had stated and all the things we wanted to see. He was patient waiting for us at sites when we wanted to spend more time. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and kind. We very much appreciated the tour he gave us. 2 of our 4 travelers are big Beatles fans and he fulfilled all they wanted to see in the limited amount of time we had in Liverpool.

Neil is a must when you visit Liverpool. During our month in Britain, I had not expected much from our time in the city center, with its reputation as old and rundown. NOT SO! Neil showed us the real Liverpool, and we fell in love with the city. More than just the Beatles (Yes Neil will show you those sights), but he also showed us the history behind the grand buildings, the secret spots of conflict from the past, and the rebirth of the new. Liverpool is now our favourite English city. Thanks Neil.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Robert for your kind words and such a positive review! To learn that Liverpool is now your favourite City makes me swell with pride!

We had a very good experience with Neil as he showed us around his hometown of Liverpool. Neil tailored our 2 1/2 hour tour based on what we asked for: a recent history of Liverpool coupled with Beatles Liverpool. Neil is personable and engaging, and has a great sense of humor. Him being a local (born and raised) offered us a firsthand point of view of this amazing city. If Neil is available, don't hesitate to book one of his tours. We felt fortunate to have him as our "local" guide in Liverpool!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marcia for your very kind review, It was a delight to show you both around and so glad you enjoyed Liverpool! You must come back one day! Kind regards

We had the National Trust tour of John Lennon and Paul McCartney's homes in the morning and then met Neil who took us to other key Beatles' landmarks, such as Ringo and George's homes, Strawberry Fields, Penny Lane, and St. Patrick's graveyard.

My sister and I booked a tour with Neil to see the Liverpool where my father was raised. We had a fabulous day with Neil, visiting the docks where my father left for America in 1929 and the neighborhoods where he lived and attended school. Neil arranged appointments so we could tour the synagogue my father attended and he contacted the caretakers at the cemetery where my grandmother is buried in advance of our visit to ensure the gate was unlocked when we arrived. He did more than expected for us.

On a recent cruise of the British Isles, Neil was our tour guide for a tour of Liverpool. Liverpool was a complete and delightful surprise. Neil gave our party of 4 a great tour. I did not expect that Liverpool would be my favorite port city (in fact just the opposite). The architecture, the docks of Liverpool and the Beatles were a few of high points of his tour. It is a beautiful city and Neil presented his city in a special spotlight. I would recommend Neil as a Liverpool tour guide.

Absolutely first rate tour of Beatles history by Neil. In his hands we enjoyed our first visit to Liverpool much more than we anticipated. He is both knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his subject. Showed us some very interesting sights associated with the four musicians and the inspiration for their music as well as city highlights. Highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Malcolm for this splendid review! It was just great to meet you all!

Neal provided us with a great tour. We enjoyed seeing the boyhood homes of the Beatles, Penny Lane, Eleanor Rigby's grave, the Casbah, and the Cavern Club. Neal is very knowledgeable about the group, giving us more insight into their internal dynamics. He met us at the train station and dropped us off afterwards.

Neil helped me travel through 3 generations of my ancestors taking me to places where they were born, lived and/or died, sharing the towns histories from the mid-1820's to 1900 perspective. I have come away with appreciation for who I am through a greater knowledge of seeing where they lived and how things were in their time.

Our day in Liverpool with Neil was the best of my 10 days in England. He has a genuine love and pride for Liverpool.Neil and I are the same age so it was interesting to compare our Beatles experience from each of our perspectives. He began by presenting a good historical background of the city then brought us to all their houses, down Penny Lane, Strawberry Fields & The Cavern. The highlight was Roag Aspinell's (Pete Bests half Brother, Neil Aspinalls son) tour of the Casbah.I highly recommend this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Peter for your review - very happy with your comments and it was so good to meet you and your lovely family!

Neil is fantastic! We had 4-5 excursions in one: listening to Beatles music as we toured Beatles locations, bringing Strawberry Fields to life; extensive knowledge about medieval Chester and Conway Castle. Touring with Neil leaves connections that you will remember for a lifetime. He is exceptional and will be the guide I call when returning to the Liverpool area.

Neil's tour of Liverpool, the beatle's tour and walking in the rain at 2 cemetery's to locate my ancestor graves was more than words could express. His knowledge was amazing and I would rate Neil as 10+ stars. He did more than expected. I thought he would sit in the car while we were at the cemetery but he went in search of the graves also. Neil was well worth everything we expected and more. Neil contacted us many times before our tour and he planned our tour expertly. 10* star to Neil.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Judith for these very kind words - it was a pleasure to meet you both and take you back to visit the Liverpool of your ancestors! Best wishes.

Liverpool is a much more complex city than many people understand, with cultural influences far beyond the most obvious areas most people know. It's essential to dedicate time to understand all the influences and a strong, knowledgeable guide is essential for this. Neil is that guide. Beyond personable, seeking to understand interests, and demonstrating his own personal interest in learning more, he provided a tour beyond expectations which catered to all ages including a 12 year old. An outstanding guide

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mark for your very kind comments - it was a pleasure to spend time with you all!

This tour was by far worth every penny. Neil was not only friendly and knowledgeable, but very patient during our visit to the Cavern Club.He was right on time and had plenty of room for the six of us.Even my friends Ed and Max who are big Beatles fans came away saying "I did not know that".I wish to thank Neil and tours by locals for an experience that I will cherish a lifetime.

Neil was right on time though our ship was delayed a bit. His car was perfect for 4 persons and he was very personable. The tour into the "Bronte Country" was everything we expected and more. The countryside is beautiful; the Bronte Parsonage Museum is interesting and the town of Haworth is charming. We would not hesitate to use Neil again for other tours when our travels bring us back to Liverpool.
