  • Rating: 3 “worth doing if you are new to Manchester”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer – Paris, France on September 17, 2014 Enjoyed the first half of the tour but two football stadiums was overkill. We didn't see anything of Manchester University or the hospital buildings. The guide was great.

  • Rating: 5 “Really good.”

    Reviewed by Antoine – Paris, France on July 15, 2014 Very good tour. Takes about 2 hours and you see most of Manchester, as well as Salford and Trafford.

  • Rating: 5 “Fun and helpful”

    Reviewed by James – Mason, United States on July 14, 2014 Our tour guide was informative and fun. The pace of the information was just right. Few of the little bladders needed a quick stop and the tour guide created a quick pit stop at the McDonalds.

  • Rating: 4 “Nice experience”

    Reviewed by Deepesh – Edinburgh, United Kingdom on June 23, 2014 The trip was very informative and covered all the significant places in and around Manchester.
