“Good Informative Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We decided to treat our City obsessed sons to the stadium tour. It was very reasonably priced around £40 for a family of 4

We arrived at the club 15 minutes before the start of the tour (as advised when we booked via phone) Our tour guide was called Raymond, an true mancunian who told us he had been a supporter all his life.

We saw how the club is investing in the community and overseas, the multi million pound investment to move the training facility to within a few hundred yards of the stadium, the pre match warm up room where the boys enjoyed a shoot out..the dressing room, I actually sat in the same seat as my beloved Joe Hart ( he's a bit gorgeous isn't he!) the infamous trophy, the dug out, the tunnel...everything you would expect. You get a free picture at the end of your tour and 10% off in the store, a lanyard and a programme from the last game thrown in too.

Our guide, Ray was a lovely chap, very informative a liked his Alex Ferguson Gags... Made the children feel vey included and made sure there were lots of photo opportunities!!

It's worth doing even if your not a supporter of the club, we thoroughly enjoyed it.

“MCFC Stadium Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

This tour is a thorough and interesting journey through the history and future plans of the club. From the beginning at St. Mark's, to the new developments where the new 15.5 pitches, innovative training facilities, college and academy are to be uncovered, the tour guide managed to engage with the whole group. Some of the tour members were as young as 5. There was a Manchester United fan present that said he had been on many of the Premier League tours, and this was by far the best. It was informative and interactive and is great for all ages and football enthusiasts.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The family gave me this Legends Tour and what a fantastic time I had. Not been able to visit as I come from Cornwall, this was the first time to the stadium. Very relaxed 5 hrs seen the training ground lovely lunch. Looked after the wife, and got us a cab back to the hotel. Every supporter,young or old should have a tour. I felt I was 15 again and will tell anyone who will listen.

“One of the best stadium tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

To reach the stadium you can either walk from Picadilly gardens (about 15-20 mins) or get a bus 216 from picadily gardens as well. It's not that far.

Entrance was 10 pounds, the tour was very complete and the stadium is really nice. The players room is very modern, the gym, the restaurant, everything is very new and nice since it's a relatively new stadium compared to others in UK. The downside is it has little history, but still the tour is very informative.
One of the nicest press room from the stadiums I've visited. The guide was chinese but perhaps more passionate than any Manchester City fan.
And if you visit before May 2013, you'll be able to see the Barclay's cup, currently held by Manchester City which were the champions.
