My son (21) and daughter (28) went on the tour and absolutely loved it.Their tour guide, Roy, was a legend and they sang his praises. He was so informative and told them so much more then they expected. Not only did he have great musical knowledge, but he also added interesting info on Manchester and pointed out things and buildings of note as they went around. The tour included a visit to the Salford Lads Club and museum where they had quite a chat with the guys who ran it. Uber taxis and a complimentary pint were included in the price of the tour which was personalised by including info and stops associated with their favourite bands. Well worth the price and they said they would reccomend it to anyone interested in the Manchester Music scene. Well done Roy!
Altough there doesnt seem to be response to the questions aaasked on Tripadvisor dont let this put you off. Once they had booked they were contacted directly to state details which would help create a tour just for them.
