We had a fabulous tour round Manchester with Emma Fox - she was engaging, articulate, knowledgeable and full of energy! We were a mixed group from teenagers to senior citizens and we all thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Some of our group had lived or worked in Manchester but we were still introduced to many buildings and features of which we... More

10 Feb 2017: 10 ex work colleagues got together for a privately organised TH Tour. Our guide fell ill on the morning, thus we didn't know what to expect. Needn't have worried at all. Professional, efficient arrangements were made immediately for a stand in guide (John). We really enjoyed two hours of information packed 'Town Hall' history. It was fun,... More

We had a wonderful lady called Sue McCarthy who led us round Manchester on foot. Sue was really knowledgeable and brought the history to life, genuinely passionate about her work and even gave great recommendations as to where to head next. Lovely moment when we were standing by the postbox that survived the IRA, a guy walking past stopped to... More

Last night I decided to go on a Manchester Walking Tour and I WAS NOT disappointed! A friendly and knowledgable lady named Barbara showed me around Manchester. I was the only one on the tour today however this did not phase Barbara at all. Highly recommend!! I learnt so much about Manchester's history, architecture, celebrities, etc. thoroughly enjoyed my time!

In 2 hours, our excellent guide, Eileen Allen, entertained and packed us full of information about what makes Manchester what it is today. Her knowledge and delivery were first class and I would heartily recommend this tour. Even though the famous Manchester rain poured down non stop, this did not spoil it for me. I would heartily recommend this tour... More

Thank you so much for your positive review. Unfortunately, tours of the Clock Tower are currently unavailable due to restoration work taking place within Manchester Town Hall. Hopefully, we will be able to offer them again in the not-too-distant future. In the meantime, we have plenty of other interesting tours around Manchester on ground level! More

Well we were not disappointed with Suzanne who with great skill delivered a lively and entertaining history presentation to our tour group. We were all drawn into the detailed descriptions of...
