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!

The tour was very educative and showed the historical growth of the lovely city. The narrators are obviously very knowledgeable

App easy to use and follow. Bus on time and enjoyed journey through and around the city. Recommended

Good transportation and value for money. Highly recommended.

Very informative tour, get to see so much in Manchester!
