Craig, Many thanks for an informative, inspiring and thoroughly enjoyable afternoon spent touring Oasis haunts with yourself. Your friendly, down-to- earth manner combined with great anecdotes made a day to remember. I would certainly recommend 100% to others and may well visit again. Cheers. Brian

My husband and I were in Manchester to attend a wedding. Because we're big Smiths fans, I had a book called "Morrissey's Manchester" and we initially planned to visit the places on our own. However, the book mentioned Manchester Music Tours so we decided to take a tour instead of trying to figure everything out ourselves. The group tour only... More

Craig rules, plain and simple! He did a private tour for 4 of us from the States and had our minds blown by it all. Not just seeing the sights and hearing stories and details from Craig, but also his personal connection to it all was equally as cool. He showed up as scheduled in the yellow van and away... More

Trip taken for a friends birthday; had a really good time, thoroughly enjoyed it, especially Salford Lads Club! Can't wait to do the rest of the tours that are available and I would recommend to anyone who wants to delve a bit deeper into Manchester musical history

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
