SO HOW IS EVERYTHING AT THE MOMENT?
Everything is going well. We are working hard behind the scenes with Vox Group to create the product for launch this summer, a suite of guided and self-guided routes in the city centre and some of Liverpool’s outlying suburbs that enable the visitor to enjoy walks of the city and its suburbs in a very entertaining and flexible way. We are in the process of finalising the itineraries, selecting the joining points for the walking tours, and cementing local partnerships so that we launch with a very solid product offering that will present more choice to the visitor as our city opens again for visitation from both UK and international markets.
WHAT’S VOX CITY TOURS ALL ABOUT?
Vox City Walks’ is a whole new style of walking tour. Expert local hosts provide a hop-on hop-off style touring service on a circuit of exciting routes around the city, that are engaging, enjoyable and safe. They’ll bring the city alive with fascinating storytelling and anecdotes, while sharing insider tips, information, and assistance as you stroll. If you’d prefer to listen in your own language, rather than English, then the app will provide a private multilingual audio experience through your own device. With Vox City Walks, you can join or leave an escorted circuit whenever you please and enjoy unlimited self-guided sightseeing. This unique audio and navigation functionality enables you to explore the city on your own, discovering hundreds of urban sights along many suggested itineraries and walking routes. Simply switch on the auto play function and explore in your own way and at your own pace. It could not be easier! Vox City Walks is one of today’s fastest growing sightseeing experiences. This unique and hugely successful new concept of hop-on hop-off guided walking tours is expanding across the globe and will encompass over 60 top destinations in 2021!. I am are delighted that Liverpool has been selected as a fitting destination in the very first wave of development alongside global cities like, London, New York, Rome, and Bangkok.
WHAT ARE YOU MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING ONCE LOCKDOWN IS OVER?
I am really looking forward to the hussle and bussle of operating again, I have really missed it. I am so used to running around during the summer months ensuring that all our operations are going to plan, though I must say that lockdown has given us a fantastic opportunity to plan, enhance and expand our offering . We operate several brands in the city, Fab 4 Taxi Tours, Cruise Shore Excursion Programmes for our partners, Liverpool Tour Company and now Vox City Walks our latest venture so it won’t be long before I am rushing around making sure that everything is going to plan, and we are giving our customers a fantastic experience in the wonderful city that is Liverpool and its city region. And of course, at the end of the day the chance to have a well earnt pint in one of Liverpool’s amazing pubs before heading home to prepare to do it all again the next day!
