Superb experience. I was able to know soo many important area in such less time which helped me in planning for future . Everyone should use hoop on bus tour to visit Manchester… totally worth the price

On time, efficient, driver veery helpful with husband’s mobility scooter. The commentary was very good when you could hear it but perhaps the sound level could be increased.
