Ticket To Ride BusyBus FAB4 Taxi Tour Combo
BusyBus and FAB4 Taxi Tours are best of friends. So much so we wanted to celebrate our relationship with you by coming together to offer you an amazing chance to experience BOTH our fabulous tours.
That’s right! A day in either the Lake District or North Wales and half-a-day in your own famous Liverpool black hackney taxi to find out all about those 4 lads that changed the musical World in the 60’s; The Beatles.
Both your BusyBus and FAB4 Taxi Tours are fully escorted and narrated with a jolly driver and knowledgeable escort who, invariably, will become more of a friend than a tour guide! Every passenger receives special attention and is encouraged to participate as much as possible to ensure that you have a wonderful time with us.
Your BusyBus tour commences from a convenient collection point in Central Liverpool right outside The World Museum on William Brown Street. It’s really easy to get to and can usually be walked from any City-Centre hotel. It is 5-minutes walk from Lime Street Station and Central Bus Station.
Your FAB4 Taxi Tour commences directly from your hotel and is a door-to-door service in a dedicated and exclusive famous Liverpool black hackney cab.
Both tours will take you to places you thought didn’t (or couldn’t) exist as well as the more iconic and famous locations for those important photographs. Your driver & tour escort will keep you fully informed and advised as to points of interest and general knowledge.
After we have admired the Liverpool Skyline we will pass under the River Mersey as we head south to join the North Wales Expressway before entering the dark and mysterious land known as North Wales. You will see the Liverpool Skyline in the distance as we drive along through beautiful open countryside and maybe spot the occasional castle on the way!
Arriving at Llandudno we will ascend the steep Great Orme and marvel at the views (on a clear day we will even see the Isle Of Man!) and visit the 1,100 year old hidden chapel of St. Tudno with its Blue Window and Stigmata. A stroll down the original wooden pier far out to sea is a must you can buy those Welsh souvenirs!
Next is the walled town of Conwy, constructed by the English monarch Edward I between 1283 and 1289 as one of the key fortresses in his ‘iron ring’ of castles to contain the Welsh, it was built to prompt such a humbling reaction with its fabulous wall circuit of over 3/4 mile long and guarded by no less than 22 towers. It is renowned as one of the finest examples in the World.
Conwy Castle is a gritty, dark-stoned fortress built by James of St. George in partnership with the french Richard The Engineer. This castle is the “real thing” resembling exactly what children form from buckets of sand on the beach. It has the rare ability to evoke an authentic medieval atmosphere. The first time that you catch sight of the castle you’ll know you are in the presence of a historic site which still casts a powerful spell. When you go inside (optional – entrance charge applicable ~£9.50)…well…need I even comment?
Now, brace yourselves for what BusyBus has become known for (and, we modestly add, have won National awards for) the North Wales Adventure element of the tour. In to Snowdonia National Park using carefully selected routes and taking you well and truly off the beaten track to viewpoints of wonder! You’ll feel like you own Snowdonia in the tranquility and ambiance (and adventure) we’ve prepared!
No trip to North Wales would be complete without a stop at the “capital”, Betws-Y-Coed (prayer-house in the woods). Interestingly, whilst right in the centre of Snowdonia National Park, an exclusion boundary has allowed this fairy-tale town to flourish into the centre of outdoor tourism in Wales. With it’s many shops, cafes, pubs and locals, it simply can’t fail to impress!
