    Great introduction to Manchester.
    David_M, May 2022
    Great tour which included music, history and plenty of street art. Great local host for the walk, who had lots of interesting facts and knowledge. This also helped us decide where to eat and drink and to navigate our way around the city . A good thing to do when you first arrive.
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Thanks David for coming on the tour and for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the experience and it's my pleasure to help you enjoy your time in Manchester
    Worth doing
    Jade_M, May 2022
    The tour guide was very knowledgable and answered any questions, he took us to places we never would’ve found if we was just wondering on our own
    Response from Host, May 2022
    Thanks Jade for coming on my tour and for your review. Both are very much appreciated
    More than a Tour, More like a Family

    This was such an incredible tour! Our tour guide, Joe, was super knowledgeable about all things music in the area and actually had personal stories about specific bands that originated or had history in the area (ex: Oasis, The Arctic Monkeys, The Smiths). The tour was well worth every penny, as we learned so much about the history of Manchester, visited hotels, listened to songs, saw famous landmarks, and finished up at a pub. After eating at a local historic pub, the group of us decided to explore more sites and pubs as a group, just hanging out after the “tour” part had finished. Truly we met friends on this tour that will be friends for life! It felt less like a tour and more like chilling with some friends in Manchester (with lots of cool info learned). We just met up with a friend in London this week that we met on the Rock & Goal Tour in Manchester! Thank you Joe for a wonderful experience!
    Response from Host, Apr 2022
    Thank you very much Dana for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you all and I'm glad everybody enjoyed the experience and stayed around to hang out. I'll give you a shout next time I'm in London!
    5 STARS Tour.

    The most memorable was arriving at 10.50 for the 11.00 tour along with 4 other people for the guide not to arrive to abandon it at 11.20 to then try and claim a refund
    Response from Host, Mar 2022
    Hi John.Thanks for your review. Unfortunately the clocks changing caught me out so the tour started at noon instead of 11am. I have requested everyone a refund from Tripadvisor and offered everyone a free tour in the future. Sorry for any inconvenience and I hope to see you soon

    A very interesting and informative tour. Joe contacted us before the tour to ask what we were interested in. He had lots of stories to tell and music to accompany the 3 hour long walking tour.
