Angela was friendly and knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it. Angela was very informative pointing out the hidden gems of the area surrounding St. George's Hall. An excellent couple of hours.

Ours was sculpture, culture and civic pride. Not a lot of walking just around St George's hall and library area.

Call the central Tourist Information Centre, you can book thru them. Very interesting tour with lots of historical tour, well worth booking so many hidden buildings to find in Liverpool.
