    Went on this tour with my 11 yr old son. We had a fabulous time! The content was interesting and the tour was just the right length. There are so many areas of Manchester, you couldn't possibly cover them all in such a short time....but this was a really great experience.

    Yes, Suzanne truly is an expert - as are all of our guides. Thank you for your review. It never usually rains in Manchester so you must have been very unlucky ;-)

    Brilliant way to get a real feel for the city. Guide John Alker was knowledgeable, clearly passionate about his city and very entertaining. Learned so much about the city, it’s evolution and development. Fascinating! Highly recommended and really good value for money.

    Our tour was on Sept 19. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about Manchester with lots of historical information. We visited key areas of the city. Well done and fun to learn about life today and in the past in Manchester. Very worthwhile.
