Gareth was really knowledgeable and passionate about the city of Manchester. The tour was factual, relevant and interesting. Gareth’s affable nature encouraged the group to interact and ask questions. I studied at Manchester University from 92-96 but Gareth provided a fresh perspective and explained many of the new exciting additions to the city since I left. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable 2 and a half hours - I highly recommend this tour for anyone with an afternoon to spare in this burgeoning city.

The guide was an excellent, passionate and engaging individual that made the entire experience a joy.

I highly recommend the tour to anyone with an interest in history or in the arts of the local area, as it provides an interest insight into both the growth of the city as well as its status in the modern world.

For newcomers to the city, the tour is especially useful as the guide is able to provide useful guidance on good restaurants/bars and further activities for your stay.

Highly recommended if you want thorough learning tour about Manchester. Garyth (hope I’m spelling that right) was a genuine stalwart in sharing Manchester’s rich and diverse culture. During the 2 hour tour, He navigated us through the peaks and valleys of the city’s history from centuries ago to present day evens. He weaved in humor and personal anecdotes to enhance the tour experience other guides couldn’t have achieved. He’s your go-to guide and won’t disappoint. Don’t come to Manchester and miss his tour.

Not my first time in Manchester and finally this time I decided to take a tour. Found this online so I booked the free tour in the morning. There are two guides, one for Spanish speaking people and one for English ones. It takes around 2 hours and shows you the most important places with interesting facts about the history of the city and events that made the city what it is today. Greatly recommend to do this one. Don't forget the tips afterwards ;)

I loved this walk through Manchester with Gareth. He was so knowledgeable and made the experience interesting and intriguing. He was able to talk easily off-script and had amazing knowledge of the city's and world history. He literally went "the extra mile" and I highly recommend this Tour.

Absolutely fabulous tour! Gareth is a great storyteller with an amazing sense of humor and good knowledge of local history. It was our pleasure to join a small group and spend a couple of hours exploring the city and learning about the past and the present of Manchester. A late tour start and web-link to the supplementary information about the city and local recommendations is definitely an additional advantage.
You should give this tour a try.

One of the best we have done, and we have done quite a few in different cities. Gareth was clearly passionate about Manchester and filled the 2+ hours with a huge amount of information and stories about the city. He was excellent. We really enjoyed the whole event and would recommend it for anyone wanting to get a good sense of the city over a couple of hours.

Gareths objective is to give people an idea of the city he loves and has lived in for over 20 years, on the trip my parter and I went on he absolutely nailed this.
The tour is described as a sightseeing tour but in order to explain his passion for Manchester he includes the history behind all the sights you are taken to.
His knowledge of the city is comprehensive and he encourages partisipents to contribute anything that they know that he is not aware of and will recount this to you if it's relevant to a question you ask him during the walk to the next sight.
At the talk at the end I discovered this is one of the founding attributes of Manchester and its residents.

I've been living in Manchester for four years now and still I feel I don't know many things about this city, so I decided to take part in this tour. It was definitely a happy choice. Gareth was a fantastic guide, knoledgeable, funny, intresting; he gave us a lot of insights about Manchester, its local history, traditions, music scene, pop culture, keeping us engaged with many fun facts. A fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Highly recommended either if you are a tourist visiting Manchester for the first time or a local who wants to know more about the place where you live.

Very interesting walk, which allows you to learn a lot about the city center. I have been living in Manchester for 30 years and I have done other walks in the city center before this one. However the guide keeps you going and you are sure to learn something you did not know before or remembered.

Very good continuation to Tour Si Manchester
