    just joined a tour led by Arthur this afternoon. it’s amazing tour! I learnt a lot of interesting stories behind those buildings! Arthur’s tour should be a compulsory lesson for each student when they come to Liverpool! Arthur is so knowledgeable about everything! thank you very much Arthur.

    As a non Liverpudlian I can vouch for these tours after the highly informative and immensely enjoyable city walk that Arthur conducted for our office social evening last October.
