The Original Open-Top Bus Tour Experts


Helping you discover the history of The Beatles and Liverpool with our Beatles tours

The Beatles Explorer is a brand new open-tour sightseeing tour bus that shows the best of Liverpool and iconic destinations in the history of the Fab Four. A live tour guide is onboard, providing insightful knowledge, interesting facts and good humour about the band and the city.

The tour starts at the stunning Royal Albert Dock Liverpool, where you can enjoy a host of fun and relaxing activities. Once you jump on the bus, you will begin your history tour of The Beatles, passing some of Liverpool's best sights on the way. The next stop will be Penny Lane, a road frequently visited by the band members during their childhood and made famous by the popular song. The last stop will be Strawberry Field, the perfect place to take a photo by the iconic red gates. The bus will then return to the Royal Albert Dock Liverpool before repeating the journey!

We are committed to ensuring you enjoy the Beatles Explorer tours at your own pace, so we offer you the freedom to jump on and off at any of our designated stops. The tours operate all year round, so you are always welcome to explore this wonderful city with us - whatever the weather! This is the ultimate Beatles experience for fans of the Fab Four.

Maghull Group

Part of the Maghull Group, the Beatles 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.
