Just in case it is Liverpool, here's an isometric view of downtown and an interactive map of the Mathew street area (Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields are off the city center).

Here is map of the home's of each beatle

Come to think of it, it would make sense if the Beatles task involves tracking down each of theit homes and comming up with a significant number.

Or finding the different houses John Lennon is connected with.

It did say in some of the articles I read they will be tracing the Beatles past:

SEYCHELLES

I have taken a look to develop categories of What to See and Do in Mahe Island in particular. Here are the  biggest categories:

Fishing Boats
Dive Operators
Glass Bottom Boats
National Park or National Monument
Nature Reserves

SHANGHAI WHAT TO SEE AND DO

I was shocked to read that the first place the Shanghai tourism people want to send visitors is YuYuan Gardens. I have a bad taste in my mouth from AR5's very brief visit there.
The next two places are visiting the Bund (original mansions along the Huangpu River where the foreigners used to live and work) and the Shanghai Museum (Chinese bronzes, ceramics, painting, calligraphy, arts and crafts).
Shanghai would make a good place for an eating challenge involving seafood or some exotic Chinese culinary delights.

Shanghai is a metropolitan area of over 20 million people (17 million in the city itself, 5th to 10th largest metropolitan area in the world) depending on which source is used). There are lots of other less important things to see and do, including exploring the pockets of colonial architecture in the old French Concession, sampling the exploding restaurant and nightlife scene, or wandering the shopping streets.

Shanghai was visited by AR6, which went to YuYuan Gardens, to a tall building for a window washing at 40 stories high ROADBLOCK) and the very interesting DETOUR Bricks or Ice, both emphasizing serious physical labor.

GE does an adequate job with Valpo and Santiago; it does OK with PV, but the imagery is a little dated. Here's an outline map of PV; comparing it to this pano of Lourdes Grotto (the site has a lot of good PV panos), I'd guess the photog who took the pitstop pictures was standing near Pim's Pub.
The resolution isn't as good for Angostura. Here's a map of downtown and the surrounding neighborhoods. (Who knows, maybe they just picked up their cars there)
If you need maps with an address search, either Yellow (click Region V for Valpo and Region X for PV) or MapCity will do.

Well if it's Hamburg instead of Liverpool then Sightwalk can fill the gap; it covers a some German cities (like Hamburg) that Google SV hasn't visited yet. A view of the KaiserKeller is here. A street map is here, and some great interactive Beatles maps here.

Fact of the leg! Petrohue Hotel and Cabanas was also the Pit Stop for TAR 11, where David and Mary were eliminated.

Although the cluebox was at the viewpoint (mirador) on the island, the teams took off in the boats to do the task (at least, that's the way it was edited). Not many visual clues due to the weather.

Watching the episode now. Teams get back in their cars right after finishing the Detour, so...I'm guessing it's back on the grounds of the Petrohue Hotel.

Perhaps you had forgotten it because that wasn't the precise Playa Petrohue pit stop. It was at Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park (Playa Petrohué) on the beach( cabanas fits but not the hotel) which is nearby.

I think it was the exact place. Teams this leg boarded the boats on the black sand beach, which is right behind the Hotel.

Peach, I'll embed them at the end of the season - could still be making changes!

Thanks as usual to everyone, and especially Slowhatch who got the estancia location!

It was right behind the poker house, wasn't it? Jet/Cord run into some other teams entering the steakhouse right after they finish the lassoing.

Yes, you can see the sign as the detectives finish the RB and leave.
