Very funny guide, and also he is a huge Liverpool fan himself, you can tell it by the way he talks about his favorite team. The tour was in a good pace, not boring long, but also not too quick. You will have a lot of time for taking pictures. Recommended.

I love city bus tours as a way to get to see a lot of a larger city as well as gain some knowledge of the city’s history. This tour did not disappoint. I got off to visit The Lowry and thoroughly enjoyed the gallery. Would definitely recommend.

Enjoyable day, great for football fans old and young. Thought the hot drinks were expensive, take away cups were only half filled. Would visit again

Our guide was excellent in every way - knowledgeable, amusing, talented and fun! And the bus was driven very well. Thank you.

the sun was shining and we had a fab time! would fully recommend if you want to see Manchester in a short space of time.
