I thought about making a pilgrimage to Salford Lads Club on my own, and poking about Manchester when I had some time to spend there. I would have only seen part of the picture. You won't be disappointed.

I took Craig's Manchester Music tour in July and was not disappointed. Not only does he know all of great Manchester music stories, he was a part of many of them. Great surf! Can't wait to visit Madchester again and take his Joy Division/New Order tour.

I organised a private Oasis tour for my partners birthday as he is a huge Oasis fan and we were not going to be in Manchester for a weekend (when tours regularly run.) Craig picked us right at the front of hotel and took as around all the sights. Not only is Craig a local but has also been part... More

Really nice tour!!! Although I have been living in Manchester for a while now and had visited most of the sites on the walk on my own during my time here, it was great to visit them again with a guide that had so many great anecdotes about them (and first hand anecdotes as well, having being part of the...

On June the 21st we went on this tour. After going on the joy division tour it was great to see Craig Gill again and he didnt disappoint. The day was packed with information as Craig knows so much with being with the Inspiral Carpets. The highlight of the day was the visit to the Salford Lads Club. Craig is... More

My daughter & I travelled from Norwich to go on The Smiths/Morrissey tour & it was well worth the effort. Excellently hosted by Craig, who put his personal slant on many of the features of the tour, which added to the overall enjoyment for us. To have someone who was in the music scene when this fantastic period was happening... More

Enjoyed the tour but felt it was dragged out a bit to justify the £25 fee per person. Really enjoyed the commentary by the tour guide. Fascinating stuff but couldn't see morrissey enjoying it lol.

Craig G, Owner at Manchester Music Tours, responded to this review

Thanks for leaving your review, your comments will be taken on board, The tour is long at approximately 3 hours, this is not to justify the price. I try not to rush people round and give everyone enough time to get their photographs, the only way the tour could be made shorter would be to not go inside Salford Lads... More

On the 18th May( which happened to be the anniversary of Ian Curtis's death),we had booked for the Joy Division tour. This was the first tour of this kind we had been on. The tour was run by Craig Gill who the drummer for the group Inspiral Carpets. If your thinking about one of these tours, get booking now. What... More

First of all we called the day before during the week when the website clearly stated that it ran its tours during weekends only. Craig picked us up at the train station and took us on an unbelievable tour showing us the sites of famous bands like The Stone Roses, The Smiths, Joy Division and Oasis. Hell we were so... More
