Reel Tours is your cinematic map of the world. We are based in Liverpool, a city which has thrived on the silver screen for decades. We are excited to share with you our walking tour of the city, visiting various locations that have featured in some of cinemas' greatest works.
Whether you’re a fan of British independent cinema or the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, we will show you the secrets of the locations in the city’s only film walking tour.
Our walking tour tells you the stories behind the camera and shows you how Liverpool has been represented onscreen for generations. The tours will be led by cinema lover Gary Lunt and he will take you on a journey to some popular destinations as well as some hidden gems in and around the city.
1993 was a glorious year to be alive, Bill Hicks was still with us, Jurassic Park was on its way & a small child in Lancashire saw Jason & The Argonauts (1963) and Batman (1989) for the first time. Not wanting to sound too much like Mel C, but things would never be the same again for Gary, who has had a love of film ever since.
Growing up on a steady diet of Bond, Hitchcock & horror, Gary gained a degree in Film at LJMU in 2010 and since then has written for various film websites and is also a regular host of the Discover Tuesday film event at FACT, Liverpool. He also co-hosts the weekly movie podcast Film Book Club and his dream is to appear on Desert Island Discs.
As well as having a love of cinema, Gary also regularly performs stand-up comedy across the UK, has had several short stories/poems published and he is currently working on his debut comedy EP. When he grows up, he wants to be just like Mark Kermode.
