We are passionate about helping you to discover Liverpool
The open-top City Explorer shows you Liverpool at its very best. Our tours are curated to ensure you have the freedom to explore Liverpool’s most iconic attractions, while our expert tour guides will tell you everything you need to know about our city.
We are passionate about Liverpool, and that’s why we provide a range of tours to really show off what the city has to offer. Whether you’re a die-hard Beatles fan, a dedicated football supporter or are simple looking for a great day out, Liverpool has something for you.
We want you to enjoy our tours at your own pace, which is why we encourage you to hop off at any of our 14 stops and take a look around, including the Cavern Quarter, the Albert Dock and Liverpool Cathedral. Our tours operate all year round, so you can always visit our wonderful city – whatever the weather!
We pride ourselves on giving you a fantastic experience that you won’t forget in a hurry. See what our customers have to say about their time with us!
We have done hop-on, hop-off tours in many cities, and this is right up there with the very best. We gained a lot of knowledge and many insights from our guide Steve, who brought a warm, friendly personality and a great sense of humour to his commentary.
Excellent way to get about Liverpool, seeing main attractions with minimum effort. Tour bus guide (Vivienne) had excellent knowledge of the city and made commentary really interesting with facts / figures; delivered with enthusiasm and local humour.
We really enjoyed our tour of Liverpool with Chris as our guide. He was both funny and knowledgeable, which made the whole ride more fun. We got to see a lot of really cool places and learn a lot about the city that we wouldn't have known otherwise.
Part of the Maghull Group, the City Explorer open-top tours are run with real passion and love. The group was started by partners Kevin Reilly and Carole Reilly nearly 50 years ago, with one single coach parked outside their home in Maghull.
Maghull Coaches went from a small business and slowly became the big company it is today - now daily undertaking a huge variety of work that the founders couldn’t imagine, private hire, school & college contracts, council contracts, wedding coach hire, and of course, the open top tours of our wonderful city of Liverpool.
Keeping the company family-run, son and daughters (Joe, Ann and Stephanie) have gained their Operator’s CPC qualification and taken on roles to build on the strength of Maghull Coaches and keep that personal ‘tender loving care’ touch to the service provided.
Liverpool is the only city in the UK to have had a team in the top flight of English football since the football league formed in 1888. LFC have won 41 trophies, including 18 league titles and 5 European Cups since it was founded 126 years ago.
Liverpool Football Club’s history is iconic, and that’s why we created the LFC City Explorer tours.
Getting to Liverpool Football Club’s famous stadium has never been easier, and you will receive an exclusive tour of the city as part of the journey!
On our carefully curated tour, you will learn all about Liverpool and the most successful football club in the UK, courtesy of our expert tour guides.
