Lovely trip and interesting commentary. Very enjoyable and I would recommend it to anyone Booking service odd, no mention of departure times, we didn’t know what to do. And why issue an e-ticket that then has to be redeemed for a paper one that nobody looked at.

Thank you for the review Lucy, we are pleased you enjoyed your trip and the commentary. The ticket you bought is valid for any sailing on the date of the ticket and all timetable information is on the Mersey Ferries website. Thank you for the comment about ticketing, it is something we are looking at currently and we hope to have a new system in place next year.

A 'must do' in Liverpool
TravelDee
, Oct 2021
A great patriotic little trip. I think it's a must do if you visit Liverpool. The ferry across the Mersey is a big part of Liverpool and its history considering how long its been crossing for,daily. I got a coffee from the little cafe and sat on the top deck, it was an enjoyable and interesting experience to listen to the commentary of all we could see around Albert Docks as we passed each building and ship. Liverpool's skyline looks great and you can see where the Mersey flows to the Irish Sea. The famous song played as we first sailed off which gives you a real feeling of Liverpool Nostalgia. ( R.I.P Gerry Marsden)staff are absolutely lovely, friendly, chatty people. A pleasure to meet them and hear their great accent. It was over so quick though I could have stayed on longer. I recommend this if you visit Liverpool, you won't regret it.
