I have lived in Manchester for over 55 years and did not know this bus tour existed. My niece and husband were up for the weekend and so we did the tour, fantastic. I could never have shown them 100th of the city and the fact that it was for a 2 day pass was excellent value. Well worthwhile but just remember to wrap up on the open top part, my woolly hat was needed! We also started at the Manchester Art Museum for coffee and cake and on the way back did the tour of the museum for another hour and a half at least! I would thoroughly recommend it to Manchester residents never mind visitors!

I booked this for my partner birthday. I am not a football fan but even I enjoyed it . The two guys who took us around were fabulous they really made the experience . Can’t remember there names ! The main guide was in his 50 , loved listening to his stories and his jokes ! Will highly recommend this tour

Excellent! Highly Recommended! A MUST for every soccer fan. The museum is unique, comparable only to a few other clubs in the world! The leadership is great. Grade 1+ tip: after the guided tour, go to the "Red Café" for lunch, which can be accessed directly from the museum.

I'm a Liverpool fan, but I did enjoy the tour a lot. Got to get to the stadium, dressing rooms, communication rooms, and hear about the club's History and that even learned that at the first match ever that was played at Old Traford Manchester united lost to Liverpool:-)

Great night had by all staff were excellent made you feel welcome and at ease Singer was brilliant defiantly recommend this trip to anyone young or old
