Awful. Poor value. Sound quality poor. Driver gave wrong details meaning we missed last bus. Better getting tram.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our trip around Manchester. It was very informative. We did get off at Salford Quays and had a wander there. Amazing to see how much building work is going on and seeing this great city. Most enjoyable.
