Shore Excursions from Liverpool Cruise Terminal

This Sightseeing Half Day Tour to Chester from Liverpool Cruise Terminal is a fully-escorted 51/2 hour shore excursion from your ship at Liverpool Cruise Terminal.

It provides the best of both Worlds as you will still have a chance to see the vibrant, cosmopolitan “Beatle” City of Liverpool (under your own steam) as well as hopping aboard our executive 16 seat minibus or coach and being whisked off to the Historical Roman City Of Chester just 40-minutes away.

City Sightseeing Bus Tour Chester

As with all BusyBus shore excursions we keep our prices simple and to an absolute minimum. There is no catch! We really will delight you with your driver & tour escort keeping you fully informed and advised as to points of interest and general knowledge throughout the tour.

We do not force on you (on a pre-pay basis) lunch or unwanted attraction tickets because quite simply, there is so much to see and do, that we leave those choices up to you on a pick & mix, go-as-you-please basis. What we will do is make sure you are fully informed as to what is on offer, the bargains to be had and assist in creating the best possible day out for you.

Reason to book with BusyBus

We will travel in an executive minibus or coach during the short, fully-narrated transfers with your comfort in mind, always ensuring everyone has plenty of seat space and a full window view.  Your BusyBus team will no doubt become buddies by the end of your guided tour and we only conduct shore excursions the way shore excursions were intended to be – as fun!

Your day commences directly from your ship on the spectacular Liverpool quayside (synchronised with the ships timetable. We will not go without you or get you back late!). Liverpool has a direct berthing dock eliminating tendering and/or poor-weather cancellations.

Your tour has been carefully routed and planned with your guide tailoring the day to suit the weather, atmosphere, whats-on and ambience of the general group on board. This makes every tour unique, special and memorable and allows you to partake in as much (or little) as you feel comfortable with. You will never be put under any commitment or pressure to do anything that you do not wish to do.


Join your tour escort (optional) for a BusyBus-style narrated 45-minute walking tour that will not only help you to get your bearings but will highlight the main features and attributes of this amazing City; Founded in AD69 by the Romans and home through the ages to the Celts, Normans, Tudors, Goths, Edwardians and Victorians. Your walking tour will end in the City Centre or at the main Visitor Centre where further information can be found.


Everyone will be issued with their own personal and exclusive Chester Map that will help you navigate the City & find those places that you just have to visit. When available, coupons from our carefully selected partners who are keen to welcome you will also be on hand for those shopping discounts. You will then be cast free to re-visit or explore in more detail any of the highlights on the walking tour and map or to enjoy the “best shopping in the UK”, with quaint twisting streets, including The Rows – the most incredible, amazing, famous and unique shopping you are ever likely to experience!

Walk beneath, next to and even touch the second most photographed clock in the UK, the Eastgate Clock. Sitting proudly above the Roman gated entrance on the former famous Watling Street Street adjacent to the 5* Grosvenor Hotel, this magnificent timepiece was placed in 1897 to commemorate the diamond (60th) jubilee of Queen Victoria. In 2012 our current Queen Elizabeth 2nd matched this incredible achievement.

Enjoy local produce and refreshments in this monumental and historic secret City, in one of the many traditional pubs or restaurants, with their medieval, twisted timber floors and creaking walls groaning angrily as they try to impart their historic, and sometimes ghostly, stories upon you. Sample the World famous products that originated here like Cheshire Cheese and Weetwood Ale! For the more energetic why not walk the full 2-mile historic and original walkway high above the ground on the most complete medieval stone walls in the UK! Not only will you see Chester from every vantage point, on a clear day you will see the mountains of Snowdonia (Wales) 45-miles away and the endless flat plains of Cheshire in the opposite direction where blood once saturated the fields during battles such as Rowton Heath (1645 Civil War).

Your guide will help you to plan your free-time itinerary and direct you to any attractions you might fancy.

We are conscious of passenger concerns regarding the consequences of a late arrival back to ship when using independent excursion providers. In BusyBus’ case, saving up to 50% along with having a wonderful overall experience simply may not be sufficient to convince you, so let me, as Managing Director, re-assure you that all operational aspects of our tours are taken very seriously indeed to mitigate such a risk.

On our Sightseeing Day Tour to Chester from Liverpool Cruise Terminal we carefully co-ordinate times to meet & greet you at the quay-side and provide a fully synchronised tour always returning at least 1-hour before “all aboard” if  applicable. * Times are CORRECT AT TIME OF WRITING.
