Liverpool Do The Double: River Cruise and Open Top City Sightseeing Bus Tour Combination Ticket

Sightseeing in Liverpool isn’t just about viewing the sights on land, it’s also about admiring the UNESCO-listed waterfront from the River Mersey. This tour lets you do both and more with a hop-on hop-off double-decker tour, a Mersey cruise to see the skyline from the water, and an admission ticket to Woodside’s U-Boat Story Museum. Ideal for first-timers and anyone seeking a hassle-free overview of the city with background on the sights.

Hop off at the Seacombe, Wirral, or Woodside stops, and opt to use your included admission ticket to Woodside’s U-Boat Story Museum to learn about Germany’s World War II U-boats

City Explorer Bus Hop-On Hop-Off Tour:
At Pier Head, use your 24-hour pass to board the open-top City Explorer double-decker bus, and enjoy a sightseeing drive around attractions such asthe Cavern Quarter and Albert Dock.
