The experience of many of the reviwers was similarto ours. We were very disappointed by the tour. The inappropritely unprofessional manner of the guide was quite unsuited to conducting a tour and we would certainly not recommend a tour with him.More

The individual who wrote this never actually came on the tour he's criticised but instead gate-crashed late with his rude, arrogant, aggressive friends who lost their tempers for no apparent reason and spoiled the tour for everyone.
The reviewer says he was disappointed with the...More
I took my friend, who was on a short visit from Paris, to the Hidden Art Treasures of Manchester tour yesterday and we loved it. We found our tour guide Ed to be informed, entertaining and clearly passionate about the subject, this made for a...More

Thanks so much. So nice to be appreciated. I've put massive amounts of work into that tour, which is one of the hardest on the circuit but I'm always leaning more, given the nature of the subject.

I booked myself and some Irish/Canadian visitors on a special Charles Dickens's Manchester tour to coincide with the Manchester Literary Festival. It was a superb way to get new insights into some familiar parts of the city and to discover fascinating facts about places that...More
We did the Southern Cemetery tour yesterday and found it very interesting, I never knew there was so much to see. Impressive monuments and beautiful grounds. Ed was well-informed and had obviously researched each person thoroughly whether it was the grave of Tony Wilson, LS...More

Thanks very much for the nice review. Look forward to seeing you again.
I did the Poverty and Politics walk - and was really glad that I did. A fascinating couple of hours round parts of the city I would never have dreamt of going to. A wide range of locations and information about the dreadful conditions that...More
