CREATE YOUR OWN LIVERPOOL ANCESTRY TOUR

Your professional driver guide will pick you up from inside the cruise terminal and your ancestry tour begins. We retrace the footsteps of your family ancestors in Liverpool or further afield in the wider North West of England.

Our personable and knowledgeable driver guide will take the stress out of your entire day and will have all the information to hand to assist you to make the most of your time with us on your personal journey of discovery.

We offer both half-day ancestry tours (HD, 4 hours) or full day Liverpool ancestry tours (FD, 8 hours). Take a look below how it all works! Once ready, expect to see perhaps the streets where your ancestors once lived, the schools you family may have attended and the churches where they were baptised or married. We may also find the actual grave of some of your family members from days gone by…

The process is simple – take a look at our timeline below for more details and then simply get in touch for a conversation & final quote (this depends on any further research that may need to be done to create that perfect ancestry tour experience for you). Every ancestry tour is 100% bespoke tailored to you and your family history. The more we know (or are able to research in the time before you arrive), the better your  tour experience will be (and the more personal to your family).

At Liverpool Tour Company, the safety & health of our guests are always of paramount importance to us. This Liverpool ancestry tour & shore excursion has been optimised for post COVID-19 tours & follows our health protocols.
