Booked a tour for my Hub's birthday who is a mad Oasis fan, I went along liking their music but thinking I'd be a bit bored to be honest. How wrong was I! Craig, having being in that scene living it when it all came about made it so interesting the stories he told could have listened to them all... More

I attended The Stone Roses tour on my own with Manchester Music Tours last Thursday. I travelled from Ireland purely for the tour and I was glad I did so. Craig is a very friendly host who has a vast knowledge of the Madchester scene. It was great to see the places I have read so much about. Craig provided... More

I booked the tour as a treat for my partner. She's a Smiths fan I'm not. I was confident she'd enjoy it, but I suspected I'd be a bit bored. I was wrong. We BOTH had a fantastic time. Craig our guide did a great job educating & entertaining the Smithies in the group as well as the likes of... More

We went on the Oasis tour on Saturday 15th March and met Craig outside Dry bar where the tour began at 2:00pm sharp. The tour lasted for approximately 3 hours and during them 3 hours we were given fascinating facts and information from Craig who clearly had a vast knowledge of the Manchester/Madchester music scene from past and present. As... More

A must do for all - even if you're local. This was probably the best day I've ever spent in Manchester. Having seen "24 hour party people" and read a few books on The Smiths/Morrissey it was great to see some of these iconic sights - and it's even better having a tour guide that has actually "been there, seen...

We went on the Smiths / Morrissey Tour with Craig Gill and it was fantastic! We're from Manchester and so we have gone to the spots on our own, but having Craig as a guide gave vast knowledge, stories of his personal experience in the Manchester music scene and humour. The amount of smiths/morrissey information was brilliant. Salford Lads Club... More

We went on the Smiths / Morrissey Tour with Craig this morning and it was fantastic! Living in Manchester, we probably could have read up about the various Smiths-related spots ourselves, but having Craig as a guide gave context, anecdote and humour to the experience! Nothing will beat the feeling of realising we've been driving past Morrissey's old house on... More

Highlight of my trip to manchester. Went alone but there was a good atmosphere and the charismatic guide made sure there was never a dull moment. The best bit for me was Salford lads club where there's a room dedicated to morrissey/the smiths. There were many great locations such as morrissey sold house, the iron bridge, cemetery gates, strangeways and... More

Solo travelers are always welcome (and sometimes get to ride in the front), and there's "never a dull moment". Thanks for reviewing. More

Craig was a great guide. I bought the tour for my husband who is a huge smiths fan. He loved it and so do I even though I think they are poor at best.
