We were so involved in the discussion with him, that we overran the scheduled time by quite a lot and we really appreciated his time and thoughts and how we adapted his tour to see you da interests. Highly recommended and we were so pleased to have taken the tour with Gareth

More modern take on the history of Manchester including some interesting stories about the bands that formed here. Recommended!
Comprehensive tour that is worth the money
, Aug 2021
Great comprehensive tour of Manchester! For the length of tour the cost is less than I'd pay, well worth going on to learn more about Manchester. Great recommendations given for restaurants that we visited in the subsequent days.
Tour that followed the hot spots
, Aug 2021
This tour was great for seeing the main spots of Manchester, such as the Royal Exchange and Central Library. The tour guide spoke about the history of Manchester and made us feel welcomed. We didn’t have to walk too far either, it was probably about 2 miles in total. Generally a great walking tour!
Great time well spent

Gareth, our tour guide was friendly, knowledgable, engaging and great company too. He covered the history of Manchester including the music and entertainment scene, sports, and good dining options too. A thoroughly great afternoon and can highly recommend.

Amazing tour, very informative with lots of history and interesting stories. Since it was only me on the tour I could have a very personalised experience. The tour guy was very friendly and funny which made the tour real nice.
Excellent tour and guide

Our guide provided us with an excellent 2 hour tour around Manchester despite some very changeable weather! There was only my wife and me on the tour so we had a good "one to one" with the guide, who was very knowledgeable. We asked quite a few questions which i think he enjoyed answering as he realised we were interested in the history of the city.
