As one of Britain’s best-known cities globally – thanks to its legendary music and footballing exploits over the decades – Liverpool has plenty of cultural sights to offer visitors. But there are also some fantastic historical highlights peppered around Merseyside as well and the best way to take them all in during your stay is on a guided bus tour. Bus tours in Liverpool range from providing general overviews of the city at large to specialist tours catering to fans of football teams like Liverpool FC, and supergroups like The Beatles, whose presence can be felt all across the city.

Liverpool has quite a compact city centre, with Albert Dock and the famous Cavern Club easy to reach on foot from the train stations. However, the football stadiums and many of the most important sights linked to the Beatles are spread all across the sprawling city and a coach or bus tour is the best way to move around. There are plenty of options available, and making the right choice can involve time-consuming research, so we have gone through them all to bring you the best, taking into account factors like the value for money, quality of the tour guides (where available) and the reviews of previous guests.
