Neil & Claire

Neil McDonald and Claire Rider are both Liverpool Blue Badge Tourist Guides who have been running the original Liverpool Beatles Walk every day for the last 7 years. Neil was the Head of Customer Service for a telecommunications company and Claire was a Marketing Manager. However, they both discovered their real vocation and each other when they trained together for two years as tour guides in 2013. Neil & Claire both know the owners of the Cavern Club really well, they speak regularly to Roag Best and take guests to his family home 'The Casbah'. Many other Beatles legends are still around on Penny Lane and they know the original Quarry-men, Beatles authors, and even John Lennon's half-sister. Everyone in Liverpool works extremely hard to keep the story real. They are both licensed driver/guides with a beautiful V-Class Mercedes and are usually busy showing guests all around the UK on luxury multi-day tours. They love their jobs and will really help you put all the Beatles locations into context. Claire is often singing and extremely theatrical, and Neil knows an absolute wealth of interesting facts. Neil was once guiding visitors around the corner on a Beatles Tour and there was Paul McCartney who even agreed to have his photo taken with the clients!
