Viator Traveler's Reviews
, Jan 2017
I think describing this as a 'cruise' is a bit of a misnomer as it is really just part of the regular water taxi run along the canals. The Viator website quotes a 'professional guide' as included, but this relates to the Old Trafford stadium tour and not as part of the water taxi 'cruise' - this should be made a lot clearer! The booking, which we made in advance, included a guided stadium tour of Old Trafford, but on our arrival at the stadium at approx 11.15am we discovered that we had not, as we should have, been booked on to a tour. After a great deal of toing and froing and thanks to the assistance of the girl at the tour desk, we were eventually able to get onto the 3.20pm tour, but this meant hanging around for 4 hours and meant that after the tour we missed our return water taxi! The tour of Old Trafford itself was great, but black marks to Viator for not securing our tour booking despite us booking in advance because it was a Saturday and we knew the stadium would be busy.
