Good value for money

The package kept what it promised. We and the kids enjoyed the service a lot. However the Liverpool accent of the tour guides was a bit of a challenge for us. But we took it from the funny side.

No unfortunately it doesn't. You don't say if you are travelling by car, but I think parking may be an issue. Possibly there are buses going from the bus station to the football ground, it is only a few miles. Not sure how... More
