Where John and Paul met
Our tour guide was especially knowledgeable and quite funny too. We had a special treat when we went to Paul McCartney's childhood home. The guy who maintains the home happens to look just like Paul, so we snapped a photo a fooled all of our friends into thinking that we had met him!! Ha ha!
Address: Meets at the Visitor Center at Albert Dock

Paul McCartney's home at Forthlin Road is also now a museum, restored with the help of his brother home photographs, and can be visit upon reservation only (the tour only stops there). This was where many of the Lennon & McCartney songs were written.
The guide narrates the tour with funny remarks and puns using their lyrics, while the background music is, of course, some of The Beatles' most famous songs.
The tour ends at the Cavern Club, in Mathew Street. In fact this is a rebuilding of the original one, demolished in the 1970's. The Cavern was originally an underground bomb shelter during the World War II. Some years later, an enterpreneur decided to bring into Liverpool something he had seen in Paris: a music club in the underground. It soon became a success and musicians from all over UK and even abroad played there. The Beatles had over 300 appearances at the Cavern.
The tour departs at 1:40pm from the Tourist Office at Queen Square and 2:00pm in front of The Beatles' Story at Albert Dock. Additional tours are available at weekends and summer holidays

The brightly painted yellow and blue bus takes you to all the Beatle homes, birthplaces, schools, favorite hangouts, Strawberry Field, Penny Lane, and the final stop is the Cavern. The tour is best suited for the biggest fans as it has the potential to bore most people. If you can get excited by seeing the stop where Paul used to catch the school bus every day, this tour is right for you. You can get your ticket to ride outside the Merseyside Welcome Center at 2:30 daily.
It's kind of a cheezy touristy thing. But it's a very complete Beatles tour. Recommended for the Beatle buff.
