Brilliant Liverpool Tours have a range of fun educational tours for students visiting the Liverpool City Region.
Although Liverpool is famous for the Beatles, it is rich in maritime history and has a World Heritage Site. The city centre is vibrant and compact and it is perfect for a coach or walking tour with perhaps visits to one of the many museums or galleries.
You can choose from one of the tours on the website or arrange a tailor made tour for your group and they will provide information packs and ideas for work in the classroom before and after the visit.
Popular tours have been for an entire year of 150 geography students learning about being a tourist in the city, this tour included a mapping exercise on the Mersey Ferry and a trip up the 135metre Radio City Tower, students were asked to undertake a questionnaire asking visitors a set of 3 questions which were then converted into graphs in the classroom.
A new tour for 2017 is Geography A level (or BTEC tourism)– Changing spaces, making places which looks at inequality, regeneration and rebranding in a very fun tour of the more affluent suburbs, parks and gardens and the regenerated and less affluent areas of Toxteth. The tour looks at Liverpool’s branding the Liver Birds and the recently regenerated £1billion pound development called Liverpool One which has been constructed for Liverpool 2008 European Capital of Culture Year.
Brilliant Liverpool Tours have a comprehensive excursion policy and will insist that all students on coaches must wear seatbelts, all road crossings will be made using the green man and for international groups they will use very plain English and work packs in plain English.
They can arrange transport, hotels, book attractions, meals and supply a detailed itinerary with vouchers for admission prior to your departure.
Teachers will be helped completing their risk assessments prior to the visit and Brilliant Liverpool Tours will supply copies of their Public Liability Insurance. They will only use DBS cleared Liverpool Tour Guides for tours including children under 18 years of age.
