The private tour I had with Jutta was absolutely amazing.She practically showed me all important landmarks of the City in 2 hour walking tour. She was very friendly, communicative and perfectly knowledgeable about the history and places around. It really felt like toyring around with a friend... I will definitely try this again when I come to Manchester again

Carolina was our guide and was incredibly knowledgeable about Manchester and it’s history. Carolina showed us lots of places in the city that we had never been to before, despite having lived in the vicinity for all of our lives. Thank you so much for a wonderful informative 3 hour tour.

Very enjoyable

Tour was great and Pairo is very knowledgeable and genuinely passionate about Manchester, its history and culture. He gave me a lot of tips about places to visit after the tour as well as some pointers on top places to eat, some of them quite well hidden away. Very happy with the experience and would definitely recommend.
