"The Mersey Ferry is a must-do experience for anyone visiting the Merseyside. The 50 minute ferry ride provides wonderful views of the Mersey which can best be viewed from a boat. The narrative was also very informative as it provided interesting facts along the way. Overall, Highly Recommended!" Rated 5 of 5
