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

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Paris, France on September 17th, 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 from Paris, France on July 15th, 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 from Mason, United States on July 14th, 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: 5 “Es war sehr informativ und dabei auch lustig.”

    Reviewed by Perdita from Ludwigshafen, Germany on August 12th, 2014 Wir hatten eine sehr angenehme Fahrt mit unterhaltsamer Reiseleitung. Wer nach Manchester kommt, sollte zu Beginn seines Aufenthalts eine solche Tour machen. Im Bus hatten wir eine schöne Mischung von Menschen: Texaner , Norwegerinnen, Briten, Deutsche und weitere.
    Alles in allem eine gelungene Fahrt.
