Maghull Group

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.
